“Not recommended”
Reviewed 31 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

I would not recommend this place. The apartment has an old, musty smell to it and gave me an allergic reaction. It’s not very clean, even grimy in some spots. There are plenty of cobwebs inside and out; I had big spider-like insects crawling across the bed, which made me feel quite uncomfortable sleeping there.

On the upside, the apartment has a big porch and a nicely done bathroom. The owners resolved issues promptly and gave me a ride to the wharf when I checked out, saving me the 25-minute walk to town with heavy bags.

Overall, I cannot recommend the apartment and will not stay there again myself.

Thank you for your feedback. Most of our bookings come from another bnb site so I will just leave you the review the folks who stayed immediately after you and let others be the judge:
The Plum Tree Apartment is an absolute wonderful place to explore the Bay of Islands. Robin and Rick are very friendly and nice hosts. The apartment is very clean and looks exactly as in the pictures. Walking distance to the city center of Russell. We really enjoyed our time here and would recommend it to all our friends who will visit the Bay of Islands.

“Charming, comfortable, peaceful apartment in beautiful Russell”
Reviewed 27 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Comfortable and charming apartment with lovely view over trees and hills, great bathroom. We loved Russell, and would stay here again. Some might mind no television but we didn't mind a break from it and there is an interesting selection of DVDs. Good to have wifi!
