We are sorry you had a bad experience with us but did rectify the problem as soon as you brought it to our attention. We are pleased your parents enjoyed their balcony room with four poster bed and uninterrupted sea views. We hope to welcome you all back in the future.

I have stayed at the Russell hotel any times it has been like a second home to me. The new owner is a great guy so friendly and caring nothing is to much for him to do for people staying.

Thank you for your kind words. The breakfast was described on arrival and no request was made to remove the beans. The wifi code is provided after guests have unpacked as there is a lot to take in on arrival. But we will leave the code in the bedrooms from now on to assist future guests.

We stayed in the Paignton Sands room (room 2), with balcony overlooking the green, the sea, Paignton Pier and in the distance Torquay. The room is bright and airy with a large window and side door leading to...

Thank you for your kind words. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us to celebrate your birthday and you were not disappointed. Being on the seafront there is nothing in front of us except the beach and uninterrupted 180 degree views of the sea towards Torquay and Brixham. We hope to see you again soon.
