Our host was very welcoming and the room was spotless, a good size for two people and the view was fantastic. With only a short walk to town it was the perfect place for a couple of days R & R. We would absolutely recommend it to anyone wanting to visit Russell.

A lovely view from a beautiful room. Clean and beautifully decorated. A quiet one night romantic stay for us but we really enjoyed the clean bathroom and comfortable bed and thoughtful amenities including the surprise chocolate fish :) thank you to the owners of the Bellrock. We'd love to stay again when we are next in Russell.
