Food was nice, sea view room was great. New coffee shop a good addition. Entertainment was okay, with a nice quiz for a difference. Would have liked a better choice in trips, but for February this was as expected.

After so many years of visiting this area, we decided to try this hotel. Room size was fairly large and well stocked, but noticed some maintenance issues. Lightbulb flickering, tiles in the bath were mouldy, hot water (when we had) was a bonus and the pressure was poor. The female manager misunderstood me when I was making my point and...

Thank you for your review of the Russell Hotel. We are naturally disappointed to read your review. Our manager David is usually on hand to deal with any issues but must have been out when you came to reception. Please accept our apologies for any communication issues along with the maintenance issues you tried to report. We hope that this...

Rooms are very varied in size and outlook. I had a single room at ground level which looked over the car park and also received a lot of noise and vibration from the entertainment which some days was up to 11:30 so ok for the night owls. Staff gave much time to showing me alternative single rooms but these were...

Thank you for your feedback.

The Russel Hotel was clean and tidy throughout,the staff were very helpful and the food quality and choice was very good.The parent company Daishs also own the Prince Regent next door where you are also welcome.Entertainment every night was generally good,some evenings I flitted between both hotels.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Russell Hotel is perfect for short & weekend leisure breaks in Weymouth – ideal for adult-only, half-board breaks. 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 away and the Channel Islands reachable by Condor Ferries' state-of-the-art hydrofoil. 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 Nostalgia breaks and the ever-popular Tinsel & Turkey breaks during November and December. ... more   less
