Unlike most TripAdvisor’s, we only review places if the place in question is extremely bad or extremely good. Adequate on either level is not worth making judgement on. You’d probably think by the title this review is going to be bad, well, you’d be right in thinking just that. From the outside, this hotel looks adequately decent. When you enter,... More

Russell Court is certainly not your typical hotel! Despite being told on our arrival that the hotel "was full" and some genuine apologies that we could only have twin beds and not the double we requested , the hotel seemed remarkably empty. It claims to have 60 rooms but we only saw one other couple in the two days we... More

i booked this hotel last minute and it was considerably cheap! I then read the reviews and was dreading the stay... I was delightfully surprised and if you read the reviews you will be put off but honestly judge it for yourself. It was clean, the staff was friendly enough and you can see they are trying to improve (slowly)... More

Awful. Eight of us booked to stay for a night in mid-Feb, but as we were a group of 8 mostly 45+ men (what did they expect; we'd booked twin rooms) they refused the booking when we arrived, so we had to find somewhere else. Don't touch this place with a barge pole.

Dear Sir, As you say you were group of 8 people (single sex group), thus you should not criticize if you are not reading properly all terms and conditions which are clearly mention on the web page (about single sex groups) were you made the reservation. On the other hand, we could accept your reservation, but given the fact that... More

You know the situation - last minute business appointment in a far-off town and your family happens to be i the car. Your requirements: nothing flash; just need somewhere to put your head for the night. Hotel looks nice from the photos; you book. You arrive. Then all hell breaks loose. Flattering to deceive springs to mind. I should have... More

Thank you very much for your review. All of our contractors are the guests and also book via booking.com / laterooms.com .... just like you did we can’t control who is booking who is not. As far as their behaviour is concern they are adults and they can smoke if they like as long as they don’t smoke in the... More

This hotel is a little dated but they're working hard to upgrade and modernise the rooms. We've stayed twice and both times we had comfortable rooms with immaculate bathrooms. The public rooms are comfortable and the staff very helpful. Rooms lovely and warm (December & January) The Russell Court is so close to both the beach front and the center... More

Hotel is a budget hotel and as long as you go expecting this, you will have a pleasant stay. Staff were friendly and the room was perfect nice. My only complaint is that sounded travelled through the walls a lot and we had a very disturbed nights sleep as a result of our inconsiderate neighbours. However I appreciate this can... More
