My partner and i had a night away from the kids, we only live 15 mins away but a night off from kids was well needed. The room and bathroom was newly decorated and had a good supply of tea and coffee with yummy chocolate biscuits on the tea tray. The bed was very comfy with really soft sheets and...

There was flat screen tv. We were able to make tea and coffee right there in our room. Breakfast was tasty. The pretty little square outside made it a...

the musty smell hits you as you walk in and stays with you all through your stay. rooms were a very poor standard. dont know how it was 3 star awarded. not worth the money charged at all. the only good thing was the breakfast at the near by adelaide house hotel 10/10.

Me and my partner Sam decided to head to brighton for the weekend and found the Russell Guest House at a great price for two nights which also included breakfast. It was 2 minutes from the beach and 2 minutes into town centre, was perfect. When we first arrived the outside didn't look as attractive or inviting as windows were...

There was no reception area, just a shabby dark hallway. There was an awful musty smell as soon as we entered. Our room was dusty and shabby to say the least!!! The over bed lights were broken. There was an old portable TV. shoved high in the corner. The curtains were hanging off and the window sills were damp. The...

Me and my friends went down to Brighton for a weekend away for my birthday. We had 2 rooms booked (rooms 6 and 7) which were a good size considering the rooms were for 3 people.

I was in Brighton for a business trip, and was recommended to stay at The Russle Guest House, and was very impressed with the service from the staff, the room was clean and well appointed. The breakfast was delicious and the service was great. I would recommend to friends and definitely return if i were to come back to brighton.
