Russel's of Broadway is located on the High Street in Broadway, on the northern edge of the Cotswolds. It is a classically beautiful yellow-stone Cotswold's town and Russel's fits in perfectly.
There are only six rooms, three of which require walking outside of the building to access, but all are well-appointed with comfortable beds and luxurious bathrooms.
The food at the restaurant is exceptional and reasonably priced. The breakfasts are of the same standard.
Parking is easy; the staff is excellent; the location is perfect.

Room Tip: The windows of the two ground floor rooms open to a courtyard and passageway. Shades need to be kept...

After an exhausting few days of travel, my mom and I stopped in Broadway for a night. One night at Russell's was as rejuvenating as a spa vacation! The room was comfortable and beautiful with views of the countryside, the service was excellent, and the staff went above and beyond to help us get our trip back on track, helping to book train tickets, helping us figure out how to explore the area on foot, and even giving us a much-needed 45-minute lift to the train station. Broadway is the gem of the Cotswolds and Russell's is the gem of broadway!!

Room Tip: The room on the top floor has spectacular views.

We stayed at Russell's in August to celebrate our anniversary. We were lucky enough to have a room upgrade (and we hadn't told them the reason for our visit.) The room we had booked looked lovely and the one we stayed in (loft) was fantastic. Spacious, tasteful, with lots of privacy and a brilliant bathroom.
The atmosphere is quite relaxed and informal, exceptionally friendly but with still a very high level of customer service.
Unfortunately we didn't have our evening meal there but the quality of the breakfast was excellent, all served in a relaxed and friendly environment.
The location is ideal as it is on the high street.
Beautiful building - would certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: All the rooms on the website look lovely, just depends on your budget/needs

Russell's is a restaurant with rooms. Rooms that are cozy, well appointed yet stylish. The town of broadway is delightful. The highlight of our stay were the two dinners we had with some of the best food I have ever eaten, and please believe me when I say this place is the perfect place for foodies that happen to be in the Cotswolds. The menu is seasonal with local ingredients and carefully selected by a incredible chef. We enjoyed the eggs benedict for breakfast there as well. The last morning of our stay we ventured over to the store/deli next door, yum! Great place to find edibles to bring home for gifts. If you are looking for a cozy bar walk across the street to the historic Broadway Hotel Bar. Historic Sudley Castle is nearby for a wonderful morning out in the gardens and countryside.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are nice however if you have someone that is over six foot 2 make sure they ha...

We visited Russell's today for lunch and it was great. Food and service was excellent!! I visited this restaurant 3 yrs ago and had a disasterous lunch so much so we were told not to pay anyway, so was pleased to see it's back on track!! Maybe it's had a change of chef or manager!!!

Room was very comfortable and extremely well equipped. £140 including breakfast so its not cheap. Bathroom had separate shower and a Freestanding bath with lovely toiletries. Staff very friendly and helpful. Restaurant had both a a carte and table d'hôtel menu. Starters c£9 and mains c£24. Bottle of wine c£20. Village is lovely and well worth spending time wandering around.

Once the day trippers depart, Broadway is a lovely place to stay, and Russells is a great choice for both accommodation and eating in. It's right on the High Street, though not that easy to spot. (Look for Trinity House art gallery next door and/or the War Memorial almost opposite. It bills itself as "A Restaurant with Rooms" and that's a great description. The welcome was friendly and efficient, and the room well furnished and equipped (TV (perhaps too small for some), Free WiFi, DVD player, iPod dock) so it was a very comfortable stay. The bathroom was also well appointed and very clean, though the shower temperature was a bit variable. In the main building above the restaurant is a landing with an "honesty bar" with coffee, tea, snacks, nibbles and all you might expect from an in room minibar. There are tea/coffee making facilities in the room. Parking is free, negotiated with spaces from the small supermarket just behind Russells. Just feet from the rear entrance of the hotel.

The restaurant is not open on a Sunday night, but Russells has a separate fish and chip establishment which is. Having said that, there are plenty of dining options within a very short stroll. But given an opportunity, please do dine at Russells. Perhaps the à la carte is a touch expensive, but there is a very attractive table d'hôte option available. . Beautifully prepared and stylishly served meals in a simple but stylishly elegant restaurant neatly separated from the bar area. All the staff were very pleasant indeed. Cooked breakfasts were made to order and had real freshness.

Broadway is one of the best centres to stay in the Cotswolds, with so many attractive places relatively close. It's an interesting place in itself - we followed a 40p self guided walking tour leaflet from the nearby Tourist Office which gave a very interesting and informative description of many of the properties along the high Street - some dating from 1320.

We have no hesitation, like so many other reviewers, in recommending a stay (or just a meal) at Russells.
