As we could not get into the Seaview rooms due to them being booked out we took the gamble of the bungalow and were so glad we did. You felt you had your own piece of paradise as you were completely separated from the hotel but just wondered next door for dinner and drinks, having your own courtyard meant you could sit and enjoy drinks without the closeness of others. The bungalow is more than spacious and comfortable for two. Our dinner was absolutely delightful as was the view from the deck. The weather was kind also and this just made this quaint and friendly township a joy to be in.

Room Tip: For privacy I would only book into the bungalow now having experienced it

This was a perfect place to experience the charm of this lovely area during the quiet autumn off-season. The room was comfortable and clean, but next time I'd get the bay view, just so we could look out in the early morning and evening. Staff were all friendly and helpful, and there is much to do in the vicinity, on land and in the water.

Room Tip: Rooms to the south have a second-story roof-top area where you can sit out under the stars, but go for the bay view (we didn't try it, but it looked good!)

Stayed here during a four week tour of NZ in February.
It's a quaint, character hotel in a lovely waterfront location.
The outside dining area is an ideal spot to just sit, have a drink, read and relax.
Our evening meal was perfect and the continental breakfast of yoghurt, cold meats, cheeses, toast etc was more than adequate.
And.... to top it all we had a lovely Welsh waitress!

We have been to The Duke several times but have never stayed in the house. The experience was mixed. After requesting a dinner booking at the time of initial room booking and also when booking in, lo and behold when it came to seeking our table, alas no booking could be found. Just as well they were'nt too busy. The drinks waitperson was surley to say the least but that was outweighed by the effervescent waitress who was outstanding .
My wife and friends wife said their fish mains were outstanding. The blokes shared a shoulder of lamb _ undercooked and lacking imagination. All in all a marginal result and for the price disappointing

Room Tip: Get a harbour view room. Iconic NZ setting

Great location, on the strand in Russell overlooking the water. Lovely food in the restaurant, slow cooked shoulder of lamb for two was heavenly. The front desk staff were friendly and very efficient, booking trips and generally advising on what to do in the area. We would definitely go back.
