Great value in Russell
Couldn't have asked for a better location! The Commodore is right in the middle of town and perfect for a stay in Russell if you don't want to use your car at all! The management on site were very friendly and helpful and our room was nicely opened and fresh for our arrival. We had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay and for the value of this lovely property would happily come again. The single beds were not as comfortable for tall adults however they would be fine for children I am sure! Free wifi was great throughout the grounds - occasionally dropped out however this was only for short periods. Free bikes and kayaks are available for guest use too

Briliant accommodation in the ideal situation.
This property had everything we needed for a great stay in Russel. It couldn't have been better located - we could walk straight out on to the harbour side. We have a sitting room/diner, large bedroom and spacious bathroom. The courtyard is an ideal retreat from the town and the tourists but still gives you access to all the amenities that Russel has to offer. Our hosts were discrete but always available for help and advice. We would book there again without hesitation.
