Drove round a few times to find out about the parking. From the outside it looked like a lovely place, well the window frames could have done with a lick of paint! (More about paint later!). Reception very helpful about the parking and the man helping with the parking (Trevor/Terry) was very helpful. We were a little early for check... More

We were offered a sea view room on the 2nd floor, which we accepted, and we where assured the hotel was very good. Having travelled 260 miles to get to Weymouth, we where looking forward to staying in... More

Thank you for your feedback on your recent stay at the Russell Hotel. We are in the process of replacing the windows throughout the hotel, but this is a very big job which is taking a while to get them all custom made and fitted. In the meantime they are maintained as best we can as part of our overall... More

Have stayed in this hotel a number of times and have always found it good value for money. We usually travel by train and the Hotel is only a few minutes from the train station. If we have any criticism the service in the restaurant was sometimes somewhat slow but if you are not in a hurry this is not... More

Comfortable and clean room. could do with more drawer space. Matress needs replacing in room 148 as very creaky and lumpy. The shower , hot water too hot when regulated with cold suddenly went back to very hot this is quite dangerous.A safety rail and places to put soap and shower toileteries would be a must.

Not one of Daishes finest. Whilst the staff were all good the Hotel itself was decidely tired. Food was not up to the usual standard we have come to expect from other Daishes hotels (ie Torquay, Newquay, iow).

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Russell Hotel is perfect for short & weekend leisure breaks in Weymouth – ideal for adult-only, half-board breaks.

The spacious hotel restaurant serves a traditional English breakfast and a three-course dinner followed by tea or coffee. After this, why not retire to the lounge bar and relax with friends or enjoy the great live inclusive entertainment provided every evening by a variety of local musicians?
