What a great hotel. Easy to find. Secure parking - a security guard at night. Clean spacious rooms. Tea/coffee/bottled water in rooms. Friendly and efficient receptionist. Within walking distance to town. The breakfast was fantastic. What a spread was put on. The rate was also so reasonable. Will definitely be staying there again

We stayed for two nights.The hotel room which was allotted to us was spacious.The breakfast spread is just about decent.You have to order separately for the hot breakfast which takes little time.The location is good and the place is well kept.

Best value, great location, my home from home in Knysna. I never have any problems with the Russel Hotel, but it is a simple, comfortable travellers or business hotel. Dont expect a lavish room, but its clean and quiet.

We stopped by for one night. The room was clean, service was friendly, and the breakfast was good. I am informed that I need 102 more characters to complete this review, so I will just make this sentence very long.
