We stayed there for one night this long weekend and we had a great time. The rooms are spotless, comfortable and equipped with everything you need. The breakfast was fantastic and it was great to see greenery out of the window. The owner was funny and fun to chat with. Loved the stay and would highly recommend for a comfortable... More

We stayed here for one night ,bank holiday,when we booked we didn't realise that the Tour De Yorkshire cycle race was on, so many of main roads were blocked. The owner Glen kindly rang us beforehand to give us directions on how to get to the hotel with no problems. Both Glenn and his wife Lynn were very welcoming on... More

We came here for a Saturday night away. Quite simply a really lovely place to stay. We felt very welcome and the owners were friendly and helpful. Also the hotel is very clean and well kept. Breakfast was nice. Would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended.

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

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!
