  • A nice quiet place to stay, and yet close enough to Russell...

    A nice quiet place to stay, and yet close enough to Russell to pop into town for anything required. Friendly people to deal with and would recommend to all who are considering a stay in the Russell area. cheers.

    See above We especially enjoyed the views, including from the hot tub. The Bach "worked" for us even when the weather was wet. Russell was lovely too. Nice walks around.

  • Perfect for our little get-a-away

    Perfect for our little get-a-away. Short drive the walk to Whalers Bay or to Russell for a dinner out. There was even a cat to watch TV with in the evenings.
