Overall we had a lovely time, and the staff were excellent, For us some of the entertainment was very loud. The heating was bit on the cold side as the radiator was not working, but for the money we paid it was very good

Thank you for your lovely review of the Russell Hotel. Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. I've checked with the General Manager about the bar prices, and as everything is computerised the prices should have been the same. We can only guess that you were possibly served premium brands instead of house brand drinks? If you ever... More

Good value for the money we paid ideal position only a 10min walk into the town very handy bus stop outside hotel. We found the selection of food and quality of to our liking you don't pay 5* prices so don't expect 5* quality. Hence value for money
