The Duke of Marlborough
The Duke of Marlborough Hotel is located in Russell, Bay Of Islands.
The Duke of Marlborough was New Zealands first hotel. Rich in history the hotel still operates today. The Duke is right on Russells waterfront avenue, The Strand. There is a popular restaurant on the waterfront verandah. A great spot to have a quiet drink. If you are in Russell for the evening, sunset is a great time to enjoy a waterfront meal.
