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

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...
