We arrived in Russell after a drive from Auckland to be greeted by David who owns and runs the B&B with his partner Aom. He showed us to our one bedroomed suite which was absolutely beautiful. It had a fully equipped kitchen, washing mahine/dryer, microwave, hob etc. The bathroom had a jacuzzi and shower which was very spacious and spotlessly clean. The decor of the room was modern and trendy. The view from the B&B over looking Russell town and bay is stunning. David and Aom invited us upstairs to their balcony/deck area for a glass of wine and filled us in on the area and the sights. We had booked a cape reinga flight with Salt Air, but due to bad weather is was delayed. As we had no mobile phone to which we could be contacted on David took all the calls received from Salt Air for us, he was so helpful. For breakfast they provide a basket full of fruit, cereal, bread, preserves. The fridge was also stocked with juice, milk butter etc, everything you need for a continental breakfast. We had a great stay here and would definately recomend it.
