      Nice refurbished rooms - nice pool area - quiet

    • Family with children
      9.2

      The owners were really friendly and once they discovered that my elderly parents were to be separated into a location involving a slope, they moved us all into two adjoining family units at no extra cost - nothing was too much trouble.

      Good venue, easy to find and close proximity without being near anything noisy. Clean with everything you expect in a motel.

    • Family with children

      Friendly staff, functional and clean rooms, nice quality linen. Small but excellent value for money

      A suggestion install a rangehood in the kitchen, given it is a very small space it filled with smoke and cooking smells very quickly, had to have every window open.

    • Older travelers

      Great location;nice pool and friendly front desk.

      The unit we were in badly needeed a facelift; it was bordering on shabby and the bathroom was scruffy - curtains were falling off,tatty towels etc. Both bedrooms were seriously squashed. Poor value for an expensive break.

    • Group of friends
      9.6

      Hosts very friendly, the unit was homely and relaxing.

    • Group of friends

      We liked the bbq and pool area to have our dinners in

    • Older travelers

      able to be alone

      close to main road - a lot of traffic noise on sunday

    • Group of friends
      9.2

      Loved how the place was so clean and comfortable. Great access to town and the beaches

    • Older travelers
      7.0

      Short walk to downtown, nice pool and interesting people staying at motel.

      No patio in room area.

    • Older travelers
      7.8

      Friendly staff, clean room, easy to deal with no hassles

    • Family with children
      5.8

      The husband and wife who were the proprietors were extremely nice and very helpful to us. We cannot say enough about how kind they were. The facility is old and in need of repair. It was clean, and the use of the washing machine was free. But for the price we paid, we did not feel that it was a good value compared to what we had paid in Taupo, Rotarua, Tiarua, and Cable Bay. We did not look at other lodging in Russell so we can't compare it to what else was available there in terms of price.

    • Family with children
      8.8

      Clean & tiday, so/and we would return there!

    • Older travelers
      9.2

      We spent a week at various locations in Northland. This was the best motel we stayed at: very clean, friendly staff, great room service, very well equipped kitchenette. We would definitely stay here again.

    • Family with children
      5.8

      Reasonably spacious. Good pool, Good family unit

      Free internet did not work, checked with others, theres did not work either. Did not realise how far out of town it was. Though we enjoyed the walk into town.
