I booked to go to the Russell via Daishs which had an amazing offer of £109 but the only room available was a double which added half the cost of the holiday on top making it £163.50. The hotel has undergone a lot of refurbishment since I last stayed there before Daishs took it over. The bedroom was adequate but... More

We are a family of three, and were given a sea view room, it was so large, that it was like having an apartment, and the views were stunning. The food was good, and the beachfront location a dream, with a child of 8, on a sunny day, and a sandy beach, it was super. The hotel staff are friendly.... More

Lovely hotel for the price, excellent food, friendly and helpful staff, well appointed rooms, we had full use of facilities in next door Regent Hotel as well. We arrived early due to having to get a night ferry and having had almost no sleep, and the receptionist and cleaning staff were helpful and flexible in preparing a room a bit... More

Stayed four days for £99, wasn't expecting too much so not too disappointed. Car parking is not great but then we never used the car. Breakfasts were great but wasn't keen on the evening meals. Great location but I'd stop at the Regent Hotel next time, thats Daishs too but looked nicer.

Great value good choice of meals on the menu not much in the way of dessert for coeliac staff were very helpful rooms clean and comfortable dancing lessons and evenings in the prince regent ballroom with Pierre are what make the break extra special

The Russell Hotel has a great outlook being right across the road from the sweeping bay. At the moment it is about to undergo a big upheaval as it's planned to combine it with The Prince Regent next door. I think it;s a good idea. Our break was a 5 nighter with Brent Thomas coaches. Always friendly drivers with this... More
