We always had great hopes that Russell would be a great place to finish our New Zealand holiday. We were not disappointed and Arcadia Lodge was the icing on the cake. Lovely rooms in a lovely house overlooking the bay. What could be better than breakfast or an afternoon beer on the balcony. A heartfelt thanks to David and Brad...

A truly 5 star experience for my daughter and I who stayed at Archadia Lodge for just 2 nights, if only it could have been longer! The house is beautifully and tastefully furnished to the very highest standard, the panoramic wrap around deck looks out over Russell and the sea below. Our room was delightful, in fact we had a...

Perched atop a hill, Arcadia Lodge boasts some stunning views of Matauwhi bay. We stayed in the Tautoru suite which was beautifully decorated and impeccably clean. David and Brad are incredibly welcoming and their breakfasts are phenomenal. If you're visiting the Bay of Islands I would strongly recommend staying a couple nights to rest and recharge, you won't find more...

The fact we returned to Arcadia Lodge five years after our first visit probably says more than this review could ever say. It is charming, with some rooms overlooking the bay and is an easy fifteen minute stroll from the restaurants, the shops and the ferries. David and Brad are charming with massive attention to detail and the breakfasts are...
