Glad we chose to stay here
My wife and I stayed for three days in a “deluxe studio apartment”. The apartment was quite comfortable, clean and well-situated. The kitchenette had enough utensils, etc, that it was easy to prepare our own breakfasts and lunches (to be carried with us); in fact, one could easily prepare dinner as well, since the supermarket is <1 minute walk away. As it was raining pretty much all the time, we were happy that we could park under the apartment for unloading and loading the car. The proprietor John was quite friendly and helpfully offered advice. All in all, the price is fair for the quality of the stay.

Wow - Wow - WOW!
Take the ferry to save yourself a horrendous one hour drive. The ferry is quick and fun. You will then drive 10 - 15 minutes arriving at Hananui Lodge and be oh so happy. Owner John greeted us and provided excellent information about the area. Russell has a lot of history. The Lodge is located on the water’s edge. Our room looked over the pier and waterfront. We enjoyed sitting on our deck watching boat traffic. The room was well maintained, spotless and nicely decorated. The owners are constantly on the move cleaning. This was our last stop after a month in New Zealand - could not have selected a better place to stay. Hope we can return - soon! Room tip: Ask for a room on the top floor preferably on the end away from the staircase and laundry room to reduce foot traffic noise. The walls are not concrete so some room noise can be heard. Our first night we could hear some ambient TV sound but it wasn't bad. The second night we had a family with a screaming baby throughout the night. They started walking the child outside at 5 AM. At 7:30 AM they headed out in the car. This really isn't a small child location/accommodation.

John, the owner/manager(?) was a wealth of information and the best "concierge" of our trip. Friendly, helpful and offered lots of information. Would've been perfect if they had air conditioning.

Great location, but unit showing affects of age.
Great location right on the sea front, next to wharf, sightseeing, restaurants and cafes. The condition of the unit was disappointing, it is an older build where there has been some attempt to modernize with modern decor and fittings. However some structural feature such as doors looked rather tired and needed repair/replacement also bathroom lacked a heater, extractor fan, heated towel rail or shower cubicle (had shower curtain) all of which you expect for the tariff.
