Ruth and Jessie were wonderful hosts! This was our first stop after landing in Auckland, so having them take care of our dinner reservations and being our tour guides was absolutely perfect. Lovely location, wonderful accommodations. Great breakfast as well!

This place has everything you would ever need for such a vacation - very nice rooms, deliciously cooked breakfast, really good day spa facilities and the perfect tranquil location just outside the town centre (3 Min walk) where you will find all the restaurants, shopping facilities and most importantly the ferry to the more touristy center Paihia (10 Min).

We stayed at the Flagstaff lodge for 3 nights in January 2017, welcomed by two great hosts in Jessie & Ruth, that make you feel that you have been friends for ever, even dinner reservations made for the first night. They are both helpful and very knowledgeable and Russell is such a great location. We were away for 7 weeks...

You will never know who you might meet at this beautiful property. This is the type of place we dream of when we travel. Everything is thought of to make the guests comfortable and the owners knowledge of the Bay of Island means you have your own tourist guide as well.

When in Russel my wife and I took time to have a massage and pedicure at the Flagstaff Lodge. The young lady that worked on us first on pedicure and later together with a man were very professional and we left the SPA feeling definitely in better shape. Thank you for a treatment well done

We loved our 3 night stay at Flagstaff and did not want to leave. Jessie and Ruth welcomed us with open arm and treated us old friends. Homemade breakfast made to order each morning was not only delicious but served with attention to detail in presentation. Our room was larger and comfortable, we felt right at home.

From the moment we arrived at Flagstaff Lodge we were greeted with such warmth by Jessie and Ruth.
