hi. stayed at the russell for 5,days 30/06 - 04/07/ 2014 on a alfa coach holiday this was our 2nd trip with alfa ,and found the hotel ok in general, no major problems. the only part of the stay that myself and my wife found that let the hotel standard down was the restaurant, the waiting on staff were very hard working but it was total chaos there were different waiting on staff at every mealtime and nobody seemed to know who was serving who culminating at the end of the holiday that i could not tip one waiter as so many had served us during our stay . the restaurant reqs a total rethink and a resturant manager to organise things, please dont read this as a poor comment it just needs to be organsed a little better and as i said the staff worked hard and were very pleasant. and having said that the only other comment about the hotel is the lift it has got a mind of its own you never know what floor you end up on i think it needs some TLC by a lift engineer. now in general this is an ok hotel in a nice location on the esplanade in weymouth and for the price we paid was good value for money the room was nice overlooking the bay and was clean, towels were changed when reqd .weymouth is a very nice location and flat along the front so peolple with walking difficulties should be ok and the sea is very clean the town it,self is very busy and also has a very nice harbourside. there is a loverly park called greenhill gardens that are imacculate .i will finish off now by also praising our driver jeff of alfa very nice guy well informed about the area and also very helpfull..........................................,
