We visited the Russell Hotel at the end of June for 3 nights. When we arrived to check in there was a bit of a mix up as the rollaway bed was not set up for our daughter, but it was handled wonderfully by the owner as he gave us the room right next door for one night at no... More

We were a group of 12 Canadian golfers totally looked after by the great staff at The Russell. Exceptional front room views over the bay. Food to die for. Impeccable service from Michael, Julie, Erin, Hannah. Even the cleaning ladies got us breakfast when we arrived after serving time. Don't no where you'd find a friendlier and accommodating hotel.

Spent 10 days in St. Andrews and stayed our entire time at this quaint, comfortable little hotel. The owners Gordon, his wife Fiona and son Michael (in fact the entire staff team), made us feel like family. The service was great and the food was amazing. A very pleasant and enjoyable stay and an excellent location.

This is the third visit to the Russell Hotel. We stayed here for two nights on our way further north. The location of this hotel is just right, a short walk from the centre and from the famous golf course. We had room 5 which has an amazing view over the bay. It is a large room with a comfortable...

We were on the top floor. The room was clean and comfortable, if a bit cramped, but that is because we use the sofa bed for our two kids, who slept very comfortably. It is 5 minutes from the center and the staff was fantastic. The chef was superb and I recommend the sticky toffee pudding. The atmosphere in the... More

My fiance and I spent two nights at the end of April 2016, checking out The Russell in advance of our April 2017 wedding, and we were delighted by it all. We had breakfast, tea, and a late dinner to sample a little of everything, and made a nest for ourselves in the lounge area on our last night as... More

We called by with the intention of having an early bar supper. Ordered 2 half-pints of soda water with a splash of lime cordial and were charged £4. Could not believe it. Drank up and walked out. If they are inclined to fleece customers at that level, we did not want to take any chances by ordering a meal.

We stayed here for 2 nights and were very happy at the good location of this hotel. We were greeted warmly by the owner, who told us we had the best room in the hotel. It's number 5, and it has a huge bay window. It's roomy, too. The furnishings are a little old fashioned, and the whole hotel could... More
