Hananui Lodge Motel
Ranked #2 of 8 Hotels in Russell
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 March 2012

We stumbled upon this sweet little gem while looking to relocate from a disappointing stay at another location. The major selling point is the PERFECT location, hospitality, and cleanliness!! The furnishings are modest but hardly mattered as our room was generous in size with good lighting and attention to all the little details that matter! Our favorite place to stay while visiting New Zealand!

We stayed 3 nights at this lovely little place. I think it was value for money considering the location and the fantastic view and that is comparing it to the places we stayed throughout NZ. Super friendly hosts. Very clean rooms and just a wonderful ambience and excellent little cafes and restaurants on your door step. John and Rongo are the friendliest people you will meet. would not hesitate to return for a visit. We had a side view of the sea which was lovely.

Hananui Lodge is excellently placed, right on the main street but we were disappointed to have a room which had a view that was mostly of the car park next door and not a full sea view. In addition, breakfasts were not included so this turned out to be by far the most expensive of the 13 B&Bs and motels at which we stayed on our trip round New Zealand. The room was spotless, light and airy with a small balcony and adequate kitchen facilities. John and Rongo were very friendly and helpful and there were good stores nearby to purchase provisions.

Room Tip: Insist on a room with a full sea view.

We had a fantastic stay at hananui lodge despite opening up our suitcases with a bottle of red wine spilt everywhere!!! Not a problem, as our hosts provided us with everything we needed to clean it all up and laundry everything!!!! Wonderful accommodation and location literally right next to everything that's happening!! We will definitely be back and would very highly recommend this to anyone!!!! Thank you!!!! :)
