Excellent position. Near enough to walk to shops harbour centre but far enough away for quiet. Bus stop outside hotel. Excellent facilities provided you have mobility. Many stairs and corridors. Good food. Quieter rooms at back of hotel. Excrllent sea views at front but traffic is a little noisy. All in all great stay with complementary shared facilities with adjoining...

I rated 4 star because of the excellent food wonderful staff and very good value for money,although the hotel does urgently need a good face lift so it should only be a 3 star. The entertainment was quite good we had a choice between the Russell or the Regent.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Russell Hotel is perfect for short & weekend leisure breaks in Weymouth – ideal for adult-only, half-board breaks. The coastal hotel is an ideal base for a holiday or short break to Weymouth, boasting easy access to the surrounding countryside, the town centre just a short walk away and the Channel Islands reachable by Condor Ferries' state-of-the-art hydrofoil. 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? The more energetic can even boogie the night away on the dance floor. The Russell Hotel offers a variety of short break packages throughout the year, including Nostalgia breaks and the ever-popular Tinsel & Turkey breaks during November and December. ... more   less

Hi, they are perfectly adequate for 1 person. We do have 2 "Small Single" rooms which are smaller than our regular single rooms, however these are slightly cheaper for those on a budget.

Yes the hotel is suitable for wheelchair users. We have a lift that services all floors. Should you require a disabled bathroom please make the reservations team aware when booking as we only have 1 room (twin sea view) with those facilities.
