Russell Hotel is perfect for short & weekend leisure breaks in Weymouth – offering half-board breaks on the sea-front. The coastal hotel is an ideal base for a holiday or short break to Weymouth, boasting easy access to the surrounding countryside, the town centre just a short walk. The in-house coffee shop serves a selection of drinks and snacks throughout the day. The spacious hotel restaurant serves a traditional English breakfast and a three-course dinner followed by tea or coffee. After this, why not retire to the lounge bar and relax with friends or enjoy the great live inclusive entertainment provided every evening by a variety of local musicians. The more energetic can even boogie the night away on the dance floor. The Russell Hotel offers a variety of short break packages throughout the year, including Gameshow Getaway breaks and the ever-popular Tinsel & Turkey breaks during November and December.

Enjoyed our second stay at this hotel with a better room this time with a bath as requested. A decent selection of food from the restaurant also. Good local bus service near the hotel with a short walk if required to the town.

We were very impressed with the friendly staff and very good meals. We would recommend this to anyone wanting a break on the seafront of Weymouth. Please see above. Great value for the money - well worth a visit to this friendly hotel.

We enjoyed the entertainment and the bingo but believe the second session of bingo is unnecessary. The entertainers, especially Elvis, were just getting in the swing when they had to stop for bingo and a lot of people disappeared. Overall we had a great time.

Thank you for your review of the hotel. I do hope from reading this review that you made the hotel aware of the issue you had with your room as this is certainly not usual in our hotels. I am surprised to learn that the reception was not cleaned as we have daily cleaning staff in the hotel. Your comments regarding our staff are not indicative of other guests on the tour as our staff are generally known for being helpful and very friendly.

good morning we are returning to your lovely hotel on the 5th of February is room 227 a nice one as we have paid for a sea view we came in January and it was so cold in the hotel room when we had a sea view room we had number 131 someone said that 227 was warm thank you from m spinks
well this hotel does not have any double glazing, they have the old style sash windows. and room 227 does have two windows. not sure about heating. i think you can request a portable heater if needed. we normally go in june, so heating is not needed.
