Review of Fantail Mill
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 24 Jun 2022via mobile
Fantastic experience with a lovely reception. The accomodation is comfy, with great ocean view and all you need to feel welcome! Clean and tidy. Highly recommended. Close to the city but at the same time far enough to be quiet. Tracy makes you feel welcome and is very helpful on giving good tips about the area.

      Fantastic short stay accommodation, view, value, private, only short drive to town. Hostess Tracey is lovely. All you need to do is put an exit sign on the out driveway and it is perfect. Very lucky we found this place. See you next time :)

      Fantaill Mill boutique accommodation is truly a gem located in a convenient and tranquil location in Russell. Our self contained studio was cozy and delightful with a comfy plush bed and luxury linen, good quality tea, coffee and toiletries. Not to mention a cute little balcony overlooking stunning views of the Orongo Bay, perfect for sipping morning tea/coffee or just simply relaxing with a glass of wine🍷😜 in the evening catching stunning sunsets😍. A special thumbs up to the lovely hostess Tracy who kindly offered to do dinner reservations for us at The Duke's. Highly recommend as an excellent getaway for couple of nights to a week. ❤

      I stayed two nights in order to attend Waitangi Day celebrations. This is a lovely peaceful motel set in lovely elegant grounds. I stayed in room 1, gorgeous little balcony overlooking the water. Comfy bed and great linen. Herbal tea selection was much appreciated. Small but perfectly formed room and bathroom. The owners are super friendly. Tranquil atmosphere. I can recommend this place.

      Room tip: Room 1 is lovely
