    Winter Break at The Duke of Marlborough”
    Wonderful historic waterfront location in Russell village. Our large verandah overlooked the moored yachts and the Ferries coming and going to and from the wharf. Our huge room had a stunning interior design and two sets of French doors opening on to the verandah. The lovely dining room looks out to the water and was warmed by a traditional fire and a wall displaying the History of the early years in this part of New Zealand.

    An interesting hotel in a perfect position but a little bit dated. Bathrooms need updating. We had no view from our window despite having a superior room.

    It was ideal for history nuts on a long anticipated visit from Otago. We walked and saw so much in a short time and loved the hotel right in the heart of it.

    Fantastic location and room ”
    We had Room 1 which had a big balcony overlooking the Bay so a superb view and a lovely room. Also impressed with the dinners that we had, especially the slick service on the second night as the hotel also had a very large conference/dinner to cope with. Friendly, helpful staff and a lot of repeat clientele which says it all.

    Charm, smiles and great location. ”
    Plenty of character, superior room (17) was large and very well equipped throughout. Cheerful staff who coped well with extremely busy lunch service. Parking at rear over road but can unload at front steps. Good value for money but no water st all in morning for shower, shave and loo only just got a shrug and late apology- no mention of any recompense. Overall we would recommend.

    Get Renovated rooms only”
    Don’t get a small room unless renovated. The bed is soft and lumpy and the bathroom is old, mouldy and nowhere to put your toiletries. And don’t get even rooms 20 or above. Overlooking the garbage bins and above where the septic tank is. Staff great.

    The Hotel is beautiful from the outside, very well kept and freshly paint, The dining area and bar are really nice too, they kept the old charm and that's what we were looking for. Unfortunately it stop there, the room was vey disappointing, more like a motel, badly painted( someone painted over peeled wallpaper and door's frame) stains on carpet and chair. The ironing board in our room was in very bad condition it did not stand on a 90 degree angle and was almost unusable, the curtains had mold all over. A real disappointment after we book this specific hotel just for the old charm feeling, we expected the old charm was ferried on in the bedroom but unfortunately it was not. Overall the hotel is clean and the food at the restaurant is really good, the stuff was friendly but not very experienced.

    The bar staff were a bit slow. We stood there for a good 5 minutes and got ignored. That was my only gripe. Breakfast was great and we sat in a spot watching all the boats come and go. Lovely scenery.

    Russell is a stunning place and the Duke is right on the front. The staff are friendly and our room, although small, was fine for one night and was very comfortable. Good food I the restaurant too!

    This hotel had all the historic atmosphere and old time elegance we hoped for. We had two nights in room 8. For a remarkably low price we had a good sized room with view that included some water. The wifi worked and the staff were really helpful.
