The Arcadia Lodge B&B, and their proprietors (David and Brad) are absolutely delightful: The rooms are comfortable, tastefully decorated, hardwood everything (great finishes), well lit in a quiet location with spacious bay views. The breakfast area not only is delightfully located, but also encourages stimulating and prolonged conversations with the other guests. There is a spacious sitting room with fun...

This was an extraordinarily wonderful experience hosted by very dedicated and friendly innkeepers. They were so kind and accommodating throughout our entire stay providing us with all the local attractions and their personal favorites. The vintage and historical nature of the home was so impressive. We very much enjoyed our private room with our own balcony overlooking the fabulous bay...

We stayed here for 4 nights in early March. This is a bed and breakfast of a different order - stylish, elegant, comfortable, a beautiful old house lovingly restored but at the same time casual and informal. We had the Te Punga suite with our own little bit of sunny balcony (or shady in the afternoon for reading) and a...

We stayed at Arcadia lodge early February. This is a great property close (10 minute walk) to the harbor. Dave and Brad are very helpful with any plans you make for the area, the lodge is very clean and rooms bright and cheerful. The breakfasts provide were excellent. I would highly recommend Arcadia Lodge.

We stayed for 2 nights at Arcadia Lodge in the Rangonui and Takura rooms (both upstairs). It was definitely one of the best places we stayed on our tour. The house is absolutely beautiful and well located close to Russell (10 minutes walking mostly on the flat). The bedrooms are spacious, equipped with ceiling fans and well appointed with crisp...

Arcadia Lodge was one of the main reasons we returned to New Zealand for a second time. On our flight back, after our first visit, we were discussing our next holiday and we both came to the conclusion that a return to NZ and particularly Arcadia Lodge was the choice. We stayed two weeks and used Russell as our base...

We have just stayed here for four nights and had a really good time. Unfortunately my husband was quite ill during our first two days and Brad and David suggested that we visit the doctor and then kindly booked an appointment for us. Our room was excellent with a separate lounge area and an outside veranda space where we could...

We had a delightful room overlooking a bay, comfortable bed etc, with a very modern, clean and spacious bathroom just across the hall all to ourselves. David and Brad were great hosts and were exceptional in attending to various dietary restrictions. They were very helpful with regards to activities to do in the Russell area and came to the fore...

My 4 night stay at Arcadia was incredibly relaxing. My room was cozy; David and Brad were wonderful hosts; breakfast was delicious every day (and they are happy to work with dietary restrictions/likes/dislikes. The location was perfect - short walk to the center, but felt wonderfully private. I couldn't recommend enough. I can't wait to come back some day.

Great House and hosts, made to feel very welcome, wonderful views from the te punga room, unusual breakfast but really nice. David and Brad could not do enough to help with any request. Good suggestions for restaurants in Russell which were a easy walk, which meant we could leave the car behind.
