“lovely place”
Reviewed May 31, 2006

As previous reviewers have stated, the breakfast is good. The hotel is very close to all the amenities, just at the back is a good selection of bars and restaurants which are worth checking out. Would definitely recomment it and return at some point.

Although this is a more modest Guest House, it represents extremely good value for money. Our family room was on the top/third floor, which was fine because we were pre-warned about the stairs and given an option whether or not to book. We felt that the cost was very reasonable.

In fact, the room was a good size for three people and even had a glimpse of the sea from the window! The Guest House is well placed near a good shopping centre in a small square,not far from the sea front, close to the West Pier end of the promenade. The room was clean and had plenty of tea/coffee making facilities.

The en suite shower room was well equipped with liquid soap, shampoo and conditioner and a selection of towels.

But the big plus for this Guest House was the breakfast - it was extremely generous and well presented.

If you are looking for good value, we would have no hesitation in recommending the Russell Guest House.

First impression was shabby but clean. The stairwell carpets are threadbare, but if you can see past that then you'll find it very clean and in an excellent location.

I appreciate that the manager was upfront about our room being located in the basement and therefore had no views, not that it mattered to us. It was clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were very good, and the staff friendly.

All in all I'd say we got good value for money.

We wondered into Brighton without any idea of what was available or where it was and accidentally stumbled on the Russell Guest House. Sian and Chris were very kind, our room was wonderful and the English breakfast was really the best we had the whole time we were in England.
When we left, they connected us with train schedules so that we made it back to London and down to Hever Castle that same day without more than a 15 minute wait for any of our trains. This is what travelling on your own is all about and we heartily reccommend the Russell Guest House to anyone who would ask us where to stay in Brighton.
