Great central location. Easy access to street and beachfront. The hosts were extremely helpful and went out of their way to make our stay very memorable. The rooms were extremely comfortable and well appointed. There was a fully appointed kitchen

Room tip: Best views

We booked quite late in the year and were originally hoping for one of their Seaview rooms but only poolside was available where we had a family 2 bed unit. It was a little pricey but great to be able have the 2 bedrooms. Turned out even better than Seaview as could relax in the room or in the courtyard outside while kids happy in pool. Unit was spacious, comfortable beds, couches and had everything we needed for our stay. Kids spent most of the time in the pool (which needed a bit of a clean) or spa. Great to be able to use the kayaks and bikes also. Friendly hosts who were always around if we needed anything. Great location right on the waterfront so didn't use our car at all. Given lots of towels each day and a good selection of little toiletries. Only downside was an awful smell we noticed on arrival and all through our first night which we finally isolated to the water at the back of the fridge, called bill and it was taken care of right away and problem solved. All in all a very enjoyable time away and would def return again.

We stayed only two nights (unfortunately) and had a fantastic time. Bill and Pat Noble were extremely friendly and helpful, even helping us secure a convenient parking space close to the hotel. The hotel is perfectly located opposite the main town jetty. Our children loved the pool and spa. Free access to the surf skis and bikes was a bonus. Our room was very spacious, opening up to the pool. It included a good sized kitchen and dining area and two bedrooms. With a number of quality restaurants in Russell located in easy walking distance to the hotel was just ideal. Free wifi was also included. If I find my self heading back to Russell any time soon I will definitely try to stay at the Commodore's Lodge again.

Room tip: All rooms are good, but I guess the ocean view rooms would be best.

We stayed three nights in one of the two rooms that have absolute bay views, those views are to die for. We loved how you have your own little courtyard where you can sit and read with a glass of wine looking at all the activity on the wharf or simply people watch. The unit itself has everything you need although slightly dated but the location more than makes up for that. There's a lovely coffee shop right next door that have great breakfasts and the pub is just a few steps away on the other side. The pub prices for evening meals were quite high but again, I'd pay just for that view. I cannot say enough about this hotels location, it could not be more perfect, the town itself is absolutely gorgeous and it's worth taking the time to wander around, check out the local cemetery too, it's the prettiest one I've ever seen. We didn't use the pool or the other things on offer like the canoes or bikes but it's fabulous that these are available. The hosts are very friendly and helpful, check in and check out was a breeze. If we're ever in Russell again this will certainly be where we stay.

Close to everything so throw away your keys. Lovely pool (which did need a clean) but otherwise nice. Rooms are good with nice décor. The manager is lovely and friendly and went out of his way to accommodate us. Would recommend this facility.
