David and Brad are magnificent hosts, and the Arcadia Lodge is a charming old inn in absolutely beautiful and peaceful little town of Russell. We could have happily sunk in for two weeks of walking, puttering, reading and exploring the Bay of Islands. Very happy to have found this spot and would gladly return.

After having stayed here some years ago, we returned for 4 nights in January 2017. This time, we stayed in Tautoru Suite, which is a really tastefully furnished and elegant room with a beautiful private terrace and wonderful views to the native garden and Matauwhi Bay. Since the suite has a separate entrance you experience a lot of privacy and...

We almost didn't travel to Russell, in the Bay of Islands. We had planned for our North Island road tour to stop at Auckland. Luckily friends in the know said 'you have to go to the Bay of Islands'. What an unexpected delight. Russell was once known as the hellhole of the Pacific, when in the early half of the...
