Our second stay at the Russell Hotel was as good as our first. An excellent venue for those who like a peaceful place to stay within easy reach of Scarborough town centre. Our en suite room was spacious, clean and tastefully decorated with a lovely bay window overlooking the park. The dining room is an added bonus - you must... More

A warm welcome on arrival in an excellent quiet location in North Bay area. Accommodation absolutely spotless and homely. Breakfast was of excellent quality egg poached to perfection with proper bread for toast. A problem with a very noisy neighbour was dealt with effectively without the need for me to complain. I will definitely return.

Not made welcome one bit, told to keep the noise down in our own room for daring to speak at 9.30 at night !!! Its absolutly miles from anywhere....35 minutes walk to anything. You are basically in the middle of an housing estate at the back end of town. Hardly got any sleep, these are without doubt the creakiest stairs... More

Thank You for your comments. I should like to point out the we are officially 15 minutes from the town centre and less than 10 mins from the north bay beach. Our outlook is across Peasholm Park. In the interests of our guests and ourselves we do not tolerate anti-social, abusive or inconsiderate behaviour. More

Highly recommended accommodation in Scarborough. Nice family owned hotel. The owners Glen and Lynn gave us a warm welcome and made us feel really comfortable. Had a clean and comfortable single room. Full English Breakfast was excellent. Had a lovely stay at The Russell, would be happy to return.

When we arrived at the Russel Hotel we were told that breakfast was only served between 8.15 and 8.45! Portions were a bit poor with only 1 cheap sausage and 1 rasher of bacon. Room was lovely but will not stay there again!

Our second visit. A fabulous week. Spotlessly clean and comfortable room and bathroom with excellent shower. When the temperature fell in the evening the heating was switched on - very welcome. Food delicious - porridge and puddings fantastic. Lovely peaceful location with free on street parking (also parking in hotel drives). Glenn and Lyn are always friendly and welcoming and... More

Place was lovely and in an excellent location. Owners were helpful and friendly, and breakfast was made to order each morning. Owner gave us a discount as we booked the last room which was the smallest, I thought the room was more than ample and spotless. Would definitely return.
