I have stayed at the Russell hotel any times it has been like a second home to me. The new owner is a great guy so friendly and caring nothing is to much for him to do for people staying. It was redecorated last year to a very high standard, decor is beautiful and it's a pleasure to have breakfast... More

We stayed at the Russell from the 30th August till 6th September 2014. The new owner Sean is very welcoming and friendly. We stayed in the Paignton Sands room (room 2), with balcony overlooking the green, the sea, Paignton Pier and in the distance Torquay. The room is bright and airy with a large window and side door leading to... More

Once again great stay at the Russell with Ann and Paul. These two lovely people can't do enough for you. They called a mobility scooter shop too hire a scooter for me, took it round the back and charged it every night. Then brought it round in the morning for me to use. I stayed for just over 3 weeks...

We've just got back from a short break at the Russell Hotel in Paignton. We've been there several times and I'm sure will go again. Ann and Paul are so lovely, nothing is too much trouble; they make you feel right at home. Ann cooked some fabulous meals and even swapped the television in my teenage daughters' room so they...
