Affectionately known as ‘The Duke’, The Duke of Marlborough Hotel is located on the waterfront of Russell town; a lively and welcoming establishment it dates from 1827 and holds New Zealand’s oldest pub license. The 38 rooms are clean and contemporary in style and some have water views and balconies.

The restaurant overlooking the water serves seasonal cuisine, often influenced by the sea.
