We all enjoyed a lovely Xmas break at the Russell. Friendly staff and lovely food! Well done to all concerned who missed out on their Xmas to give us ours! Thank you very much. The hotel was decorated with all the Xmas trimmings. Lovely break.

Hotel was tired and dated but reasonably comfortable. The Staff were very helpful and obliging. There was a good choice of food and the restaurant staff gave an excellent service. Entertainment left a lot to be desired. Would visit again.

Hotel is Ok and food is OK, parking is not good as you keep getting blocked in behind others, its easy enough to re plan the car parks to allow 6 cars to park easily instead of 9 getting blocked in, room was old and needs a lot of updating, shower and hot water are not good

My husband and another couple stayed here for a New Years break, and it was great! The hotel itself is a little tired, but had everything you could possibly want. The rooms were good, very warm and cosy, plenty of tea coffee available, adequate bath room, cleaned and towels renewed daily, couldn't ask for anything more. The food was lovely...

Good value for the money have been several times before the hotel is in good situation to travel to surrounding areas. The guests are mainly older. It is nice if you can get a second floor sea view room.

The spacious hotel restaurant serves a traditional English breakfast and a three-course dinner followed by tea or coffee. After this, why not retire to the lounge bar and relax with friends or enjoy the great live inclusive entertainment provided every evening by a variety of local musicians?
