Great stay at the Duke motel. Great location just a short work (less than 5 minutes) to the beach and the main street. Nice pool and big rooms modern rooms. Stayed in a 2 bedroom room, and a one bedroom room the next night. Both highly recommended.

Nice accommodations for reasonable price for four adults staying together in two bedrooms. Very nice bathroom with large jacuzzi tub, but a little slight on number of towels supplied. Furniture in the living room was "Swedish" and not comfortable. Bed was extremely comfortable, however. No view of the water, but close to shopping and restaurants.

We stayed a couple of nights at The Duke Motel. The rooms were a surprise - tastefully furnished, immaculate and comfortable. There was a view from our room towards the ocean. The Duke is within easy walking distance to Russell waterfront where you will find great restaurants, shops etc. There are small supermarkets in town too.

Great stay. A comfy bed, large bathroom, separate lounge area. Warm pool and a BBq area looked great and plenty of good facilities. Pity we only stayed one night. Walking distance to Russell and cafes.

Loved being able to walk just a couple of blocks to the waterfront and everything you need. Very quiet. Kids loved the pool....

This was the perfect place for our wee summer break as a family. Brilliant for the kids (and parents) with Sky in their own room and a great pool to keep them happy for hours! Two lovely BBQ areas to choose from, just enough kitchen to play with and books and games and Wifi an added bonus. Clean, fresh and...
