Waterfront Accommodation in Russell, Bay of Islands

If you're choosing accommodation in Russell or the Bay of Islands then you can't go past the Duke! We have a range of hotel accommodation options from our exquisite waterfront rooms with views over the Bay to Paihia and the historic Waitangi Treaty Grounds, to our Sundeck and Standard rooms with either a shared deck or a view over the lovely Russell village. Whatever your choice, The Duke of Marlborough Hotel and Russell provide a great launching pad for all The Bay of Islands has to offer.

What our customers say

We booked the Duke as our wedding venue around about 1.5 years before our wedding, the only thing we were on time with getting organized and I am so glad we did! Ida and the team could not have been more helpful, with customizing their already delicious menu plan, helping to remind us and organize all those details that are easy to overlook, with moving and removing people around rooms to suit various dates/requirements (we booked the hotel for 4 nights) The staff couldn't have been more helpful and attentive.The hotel itself is beautiful and the setting was just perfect for a wedding. We loved it so much we plan to come back every year for our anniversary!
