These budget hotels always seem to need higher skills in the Head Chef and more TLC of the building in order to make the most of the resources they already have The front-of-house-staff were fine - welcoming, working hard..

This Hotel is right on the sea front with perfect views of the whole bay. The Russell has benefited from an extensive refurbishment programme that has transformed the reception area , now giving residents a very comfortable coffee shop in smart surroundings with splendid views of the sea front.

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
