I hardly ever write TripAdvisor reviews but I felt I had to for The Russell. What a wonderful little place. Friendly and helpful staff, beautiful setting, clean and spacious room with a great view, and convenient for the heart of town. Delicious breakfasts. Cosy restaurant/bar in the evening. We arrived with a little baby and the staff bent over backwards... More

Stayed across the street but we made Russell hotel our own. Small hotel but 300 Yds from first tee at the old course. Here we ate and socialized. Dinner was top notch. Nachos & appetizers were well done. Gordon, Michael & Emma took great care of us. Highly recommended!

Sat outside and watched the world go by. Lovely atmosphere in the bar at night and during the day. Great bar food being served. The Supper Room through the back is a great place to have a lovely evening meal. Top quality products and lovely menu. Talking to guests they rave about the hotel rooms and service.

Wonderful small hotel! Great location in St Andrews! Food was fabulous! Fresh lobster and several fish dishes! Eggs Benedict for breakfast! Staff couldn't have been more friendly! We were able to play the Old Course and Jubilee with a golf package that included 4 dinners.

This stay was my second visit to the Russell Hotel and it won't be my last. The location is perfect and the price is excellent. The DeVry family (Fiona, Gordon, and their son Michael) own and operate the hotel and they do a great job. The rooms are a little small and there's no elevator, but they have a nice... More

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.
