    Fantastic service, good knowledge of the beers on offer, well run kitchen - listening to the pass was a highlight! We had the orongo oysters natural, tuatuas and chowder, the Kumara bread was light and tasty, all of the seafood well prepared and tasted amazeballs....More

    Can now cross this dining experience off the 'bucket' list. Setting, staff, service, food all good but $9 for bottled water is over the top.This hotel certainly is of historic importance. Only dined; did not stay.

    It really is the only place worthy of eating in Russell. If you want more choice then you catch the ferry over to Paihia but once you've eaten here you don't want to eat anywhere else. Very busy in winter but always heaving in summer!

    We did not stay here but did use the Bar and Restaurant for dinner so I have no comments on the hotel itself. The Bar is very "english clubby" with dark panel walls and old leather seats. The restaurant is the jewel of the experience....More

    We stayed in a 'small' room which was still a good size, light and freshly decorated with all the amenities needed for our stay. We especially found the montage of pictures of the queen above the bed amusing! Can't beat the location on the waterfront...More
