tripadvisor Traveler Reviews

Large and comfortable room

The Russell Hotel is easy to find, on the London Road, free car parking behind the hotel. Our room was on the third floor, but a kind staff member whisked away my bag which was much appreciated. If you have trouble with stairs, ask for a room on the lower floor. Our room was very large with a big bathroom. Yes, the decor is dated, but the room was very clean, beds are comfortable and the shower is great, my criteria for a good night's stay. The staff are really friendly and helpful, the breakfast cooked to order, hot and plentiful. The High Street is a five or so minute walk down a reasonably gentle sloping road and the Common is across the road and lovely for a wander.

Good location but......

It was all uphill to get to the hotel, but it is not too far.It looks OK on the outside, but inside is really tired, very 1970s decoration and chips and lumps off corners and walls.The bedlinen and towels were spotless. The "bathroom" was so tiny there was no room for a washbasin. A bit annoying when you have a room for three people.All the windows opened out fully, with nothing to stop you falling out if you were a small child.There was no way out from our room except to go down three flights of stairs. Scary if there was a fire.The poor man serving breakfast was on his own serving a full room of people, and was not very successful at it.

Totally fine for the price

After reading all the rubbish reviews I didn't have high hopes but our twin room was clean and spacious with everything we could want. Yes the hotel is tired and needs updating but it's quirky, interesting and has comfy beds.We faced out front and it was a bit noisy late evening (we had the windows open as it was hot) but quieted down after midnight. Breakfast was nice, poached eggs cooked perfectly.For the price inc. breakfast, a few minutes walk into town and free parking I'll definitely be back !

Has potential

We stayed one night at the hotel. It has great potential to be an excellent hotel. The rooms are dated but the bedding & towels were spotless, the staff friendly and a great full English breakfast this morning. For the price and proximity to Bedgebury Pinetum I couldn't fault it. It just needs a lot of love & money injected into it to bring it up. It is slightly noisy as very close to busy road. Very close to local shops.
