Reviewed yesterday NEWvia mobile

Stayed in a family room: a bit small but beds very comfortable, good Wi-Fi, hairdryer, TV. and tea making facilities in room. All staff were not only helpful but very friendly. Breakfast was plentiful and very tasty, cooked to order. Our only regret was that we were only staying for one night!

This is the first time in more than 970 reviews that I have written about a place I tried but was not able to patronize. I'm praising the Russell Hotel because their attempts to serve me went way, way beyond expectations. In brief, I hope to play the Old Course at St. Andrews 6 months from now (September, 2017) I...

12 of us visited for three days of golf from 1 March. What a friendly welcome and lovely atmosphere in the bar and restaurant. The rooms are small but comfortable. It is unusual nowadays to get a breakfast cooked to order, so it was always fresh and hot. Dinner was enjoyable and on our last day the new seasons menu...

Staff the most helpful you could want, manager always available to speak to and decoration spot on. Bar area really good! Food is of the highest quality with service to match. Breakfast makes waking up worthwhile.
