Went to he Russell hotel on a last minute break with Daishs coach holidays, we were advised on booking that the room was located at the rear of the hotel, so on arrival there were no expectations of any thing else, the room, on the ground floor, as requested, was clean, with a walk in shower, plenty of hot water,...

Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights, found everything was very good, housekeeping and bar staff very helpful as was the rest of the staff. We had the same table all week and our waitress (Sadie) could not have been more helpful and courteous, nothing was too much trouble. Would recommend this hotel to anybody.

Just got back from a coach holiday to this hotel, what a disgrace this hotel was, our room was at the back of the hotel overlooking the wheelie bins and storage shed couldn't have the windows open because of the terrible smell and the seagulls were having a field day with all the waste food. Our room was not very... More

Staff were very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Meals were great with a good selection and the entertainment was also very good. We stayed here as part of a coach holiday and I would do it again but see my comments below regarding the cleanliness of the room.

The hotel is in a prime position, if you prefer the quieter side of Weymouth. We thought it was great. The Hotel needs a bit of updating, but it had all our requirements. The food was good value for money, Daishs always live up to their knowledge of what the customer wants. In the restaurant it was easy to serve... More
