What our clients say about us on TripAdvisor

"We have just finished a trip around Australia and NZ stopping in Hotels and Guest houses. This was one of the Highlights. The greeting you receive is First Class and Genuine, The rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean. Everything you need is provided and the views from the balcony is unforgettably. I just wish there had been a chain of these on our travels and we would have stopped in one every night. If they have vacancy just book it up ,could not recommend more."

"My husband and I were fortunate enough to stay three wonderful days at Bellrock Lodge. We echo all the compliments in previous reviews.The rooms are spotless, the beds are comfortable and the views amazing.The rooms are furnished with care and warmth, with bathroom and kitchenette equipped with everything one could need. Our hosts, Lorraine and Peter, extended marvellous hospitality and generosity, both in furnishing our room with the little extras and with their 'Welcome Drinks Evening' which was a highlight of our stay. Highly Recommended! "

"Lorraine and Pete was the friendliest host you could ask for - the room was more than comfortable with an enormous bed. Heating is easy according to the weather with the heat pump/air-conditioner, electric blankets if needed. The welcome drinks and nibbles was delicious and the company outstanding - great time to share your life stories! all the rooms has a gorgeous view and it is close to everything - you could walk to the ferry to spend a day in Paihia and all the restaurants in Russel is in walking distance. If you don't want to go out for dinner the room has a kitchenette with everything in it to make a nice dinner that you can enjoy on your own deck drinking in the sunset. Don't miss out on a visit to Bellrock lodge."
