Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, very good value for money. Excellent variety for breakfast, water melon and smoked salmon on top of all the usual goodies. The room was large and the bed was so comfortable I wanted to bring it home. I slept far better than at home. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly.

We stayed one night at the Best Western Russell Hotel after attending our granddaughter's wedding. The hotel was very convenient- only a few miles from the M20 in a quiet location on the outskirts of Maidstone. We did not use many of the facilities but the room was large with a comfy bed, flat screen TV and bathroom with bath.... More

Stayed here for three nights during a very busy weekend for them (2 functions) and recovered stunning service. Receptionists were polite and helpful. Had a beautiful room/suite which was cleaned each day. It was quiet despite being near the car-park. The room's air-co. worked well. Big bath, loads of hot water. Breakfast was good - buffet continental and cooked. I... More

Everything about this hotel is just pretty rubbish. I stayed here on business and have stayed at several other hotels in the area, I will not be coming back to this one. Check-in was quick, but the guy behind the desk looked and acted like he was on community service. Mumbled, couldnt really be bothered with anything and generally lack... More

Due to heavy traffic around London and therefore arriving later than planned in Kent, we came to this hotel. We were told they still had several double rooms available, were given the key to one and informed that there was no lift and we would have to carry our luggage up to the second floor, which meant mounting a staircase...
