A convenient location a short walk from Russell village and on the road in from the Opua to Russell ferry, the Motel Russell is reasonable value and a good base to explore the many attractions of the Bay of Islands. Once the ferry stops running at 2100 the town is a quiet haven.

Ideal location- however, would have benefited from better fans or air cons consequently windows had to be left open and as such we all suffered bites (some more than others!)! The pool is a nice place to cool down. Just a shame the insects spoilt it.

Visited for a few nights, 4th visit over last few years, delightful owners where nothing is to much trouble, well appointed with every thing you need. No air con but lots of fans, bed really comfortable, quiet and secluded but very close, 10 min walk into Russell. The walk is relatively flat just a slight incline. Lovely small plunge pool area surrounded by lovely cooling foliage.
Reasonably priced, highly recommend it

The rooms are clean and the staff were helpful and friendly.
Appreciated the swimming pool on hot afternoons - a lovely place to unwind and relax. A short walk from the village of Russell but far enough away from the bustle of a seaside village in the summer. Recommend

Good-sized room with lovely comfortable bed. Lots of hot water and good shower/bathroom. All very clean. Kitchenette had everything you need. Wifi was patchy on occasion which was frustrating.Owner was really friendly and helpful making sure we had everything we needed. Good location with short stroll into Russell for retaurants, bars, shops, beach and ferries. Pool and garden looked great but sadly we didn't have the weather to be able to use them. Laundry facilities excellent. Would definitely recommend staying here.
