This is New Zealand’s oldest licensed hotel, and today offers spectacular views over Russell’s waterfront in the Bay of Islands.

This carefully restored hotel sits in a privileged position on Russell’s waterfront in the Bay of Islands.

There is a variety of accommodation options on offer: choose from a Small or Standard Room to enjoy a queen-size bed, en suite bathroom and Sky TV, or opt for Superior Room for these conveniences plus the use of a shared deck for enjoying the excellent views here. Waterfront Rooms offer spectacular views over the Bay of Islands and out to Paihia and Waitangi.

The Duke of Marlborough Restaurant serves a menu full of local and seasonal produce, along with an extensive beverage list that includes more than 100 wines and over 30 varieties of beer. The hotel provides guests with a comfortable base and easy access to a number of activities in the Bay of Islands area – from kayaking and dolphin spotting to exploring historic sites and relaxing on the beach. Just a short distance away find the Waitangi Treaty Grounds, where New Zealand’s founding document was signed.
