Have just returned from 3 nights at The Gables Waterfront Apartment. The apartment is comfortable, well equipped & beautifully presented. The location on the Russell waterfront is perfect. Walking distance to all amenities. Loved sitting on the balcony & feeling a part of the friendly banter below. The food at The Gables Restaurant was delicious, together with the stunning views from our table right on the waterfront.
Loved every minute of our stay in beautiful Russell.
Thoroughly recommend :)
From the moment we arrived we felt at home in the Gables apartment. Its spacious elegance welcomed us and the winter chill was quickly replaced with warmth from the gas fire. The views through the pohutukawas to the bay and wharf are stunning and complete with resident tuis in the treetops. The location is excellent for good walking around Russell and we also travelled by car to historic Waitangi and Kerikeri an easy drive away. Directly below the apartment are The Gables Restaurant and Hone's Garden, specialising in local fresh produce.
We will definitely be returning.
The location of this charming and comfortable apartment is perfect. You can sit on the terrace and feel like you are a part of the action at the restaurants below, without having to leave your deck chair. Everything you need is so close by and it's right on the beach where the sunsets are magical. The Gables restaurant and Hone's Garden just downstairs both serve delicious, fresh and local food (along with a great selection of local beer and wine); and the staff epitomise great Kiwi hospitality.
The attention to detail is very impressive and is an ideal apartment for two couples sharing as it offers two extremely comfortable and well appointed spotlessly clean bedrooms and bathrooms. The living room and kitchen have a WOW factor being both extremely comfortable and enjoying a wonderful view of the sea. The central position of the apartment could not be better its got to be one of the best places to stay in the beautiful town of Russell.
This is the third time we have stayed in this beautiful apartment with stunning views over the water and harbour. It's really comfortable and spotless - the owners have done a great job. When sitting on the balcony you can watch the activity all along the waterfront. The location is amazing! We ate in the Gables Restaurant below - the menu is really good (including local whole snapper). The supermarket and everything you need is close by.
