Marvellous stay
5 stars 5

'We can only describe our stay with Lyn and Glenn at The Russell as excellent and is the only way to describe our overall experience. The accommodation was just what you would want, clean, tidy and well presented and in a very quiet area of the town with our spacious room at the front of the house overlooked Peasholm park. The guest house is in walking distance to all Scarborough\'s attractions but far enough away to miss all the Huss and bustle. Wi-Fi connection is outstanding and very fast.There was a good breakfast choice and I must say Glenn\'s full English breakfast was probably one of the best I\'ve ever had. Lyn and Glenn could not have been any more accommodating, they always made you feel that nothing was too much trouble and Glenn is a mine of local information. 10 out of 10 for Lyn and Glenn and we would recommend this accommodation to anybody. We would have no hesitation in staying here again in the future.'

Scarborough is a great central location for rides over the moors and visiting Whitby, Bridlington etc. Always a pleasant welcome, good sleep and hearty breakfast. The hotel couldn\'t be in a quieter location overlooking Peasholm Park if you ignore the occasional fox, owl and crow. However the hotel is only a short walk from the seafront. Looking forward to next time.'

Alfie Boe Weekend
4 stars 4

'We booked to see Alfie Boe at the Open Air Theatre, but he cancelled. This was no reflection on The Russell, however, which is a good quality B&B, ideally positioned for the OAT and North Bay (my favourite!). Comfortable room, though being on the 2nd floor would be a struggle for older people. Clean, with all usual supplies and fittings, including Good Wi-Fi, (though with a bad password). We didn\'t have Dinner, just Breakfast, which would be my only criticism, served only between 8.15 and 8.45, which is far too early. Portions were OK and good quality, though better served on a larger plate for ease of eating! I would also prefer self service of the OJ. Parking on site and roadside is good. Overall, I would return to the Russell, but only if it suited my location requirements.'

'My wife and I have just spent a very enjoyable week at the Russell. The room was spacious and clean and the bed comfortable despite a few interesting sounds on my side. There was a good choice at breakfast and the cooked elements were all very tasty and well cooked. We opted for the evening meal too and they were excellent and plentiful ! Our diet will start as soon as we get home 😊. Above all else our hosts, Glenn and Lin were both very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay with an endearing sense of humour. It was our first stay at the Russell but will not be our last.'

'Yet again we have really enjoyed our stay here...I stayed with my two children, re-booking after last year so we could attend a swimming gala over the weekend. We had a family room which was spotlessly clean, plenty of room and good facilities. The owners are so friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble - even getting up to make us an early breakfast, which was second to none - delicious! The hotel has a real relaxed feel about it and we wished we could have stayed longer - the children are already asking to go back for a holiday. We certainly hit the jackpot finding this b&b as listening to some of the other parents talk about their experiences of where they were staying was shocking. Thanks again to \'The Russell\'...hopefully see you again soon :-)'

The hotel was splendid and the help we received from Glenn and Lynn to find a restaurant and taxi to and from the hotel for a \'special\' meal was great - we had to do nothing but \'turn up\' at the appropriate times!!! The drink before bed on our return from the restaurant just seemed to \'stretch\' and we were made to feel very welcome. After a very comfortable night\'s sleep the breakfast (cooked by the 2nd in command although he thinks 1st in command) was superb and just what we had waited for. Altogether an anniversary worth remembering and we hope to return in the near future - to be recommended to anyone if not everyone !! Thank you both. Tony and Vida.'

There was a large choice for breakfast and the evening meals were traditional and beautifully cooked. The heating was turned on when the temperature was unseasonally cool. Every effort was made to ensure a comfortable stay, Lyn and Glenn being very pleasant and professional. We enjoyed it so much we have rebooked for next year.'

'The Russell Hotel in Scarborough is conveniently located in the North Bay area in Ryndleside, overlooking the western boundary of Peasholm Park. The hotel (actually a b&b) is also a short distance from the North Bay beach and the new Scarborough Open Air Theatre. For those of an energetic disposition, South Bay and the Harbour can be walked in about 30 minutes. The hotel is owned by Glenn and Lyn, who made us most welcome. This was the second time that we had stayed at the Russell and we have been fortunate to have had the use of each of the two bay fronted rooms on the first floor (rooms 1 & 6). From our observations, all rooms seemed fairly spacious and well equipped, with a flat screen television, tea/ coffee making facilities and plenty of space for clothes and suitcases. There is also free WiFi throughout the hotel. There is off-street parking each side of the property, with addition spaces in the road outside. The hotel was very clean and the breakfast's were sumptuous with plenty of options, and set us up for the day, with Glenn, Lyn and their helpers always cheerful. Room rates are very competitive and we will certainly use the Russell Hotel whenever we visit Scarborough in the future.'

Relaxing Stay
5 stars 5

'I booked this for a mini-break for myself and my teenage Daughter, as we've always enjoyed visiting Scarborough over the years. We were warmly welcomed as soon as we arrived, booked in and shown up to our room. The room (which was a twin) was a decent size with two very comfortable beds, bedside cupboards, chest of drawers, and a recess to hang clothes. There was also a good sized en-suite, which consisted of a bath and a shower, hand basin, and of course a toilet, there was plenty of space to hang clothes, and everything was spotless. There were tea and coffee making facilities. The breakfast was lovely with a choice of various cereals, fresh juice, a choice of a full English or if you prefered, something a little lighter, I tried a full English one day, scrambled eggs on toast with bacon the 2nd day on the third day poached egg on toast with bacon, each day it was beautifully cooked. Nothing was too much trouble for the hosts. Myself and my Daughter thoroughly enjoyed the vist - Even the weather was king to us!'

Breakfast was plentiful and we could come and go as we liked. Hosts and staff very friendly and helpful. Would certainly visit again and would recommend to others.'

A definite YES from us
5 stars 5

'1 week after a hideous experience at the travelodge scarboro we CANCELLED the next booking there & found this PROPER hotel via the net. Only stayed the 1 night but it was spot-on what we needed. Glen & Lynn made us immediately welcome, our 2 rooms exactly as per the pics on website, nice beer in the bar, all the local info we needed to know, a perfect nights sleep in a silent location & in the morning a delicious full english breakfast to finish our stay there. A full yes TICK from us'

Friendly atmosphere
5 stars 5

'We stayed for a week and would have liked to have stayed another week if we had the time! The friendly atmosphere, personal info on local events and places, a beautiful park on the doorstep and being able to come and go as we pleased were just some of the benefits of staying at The Russell. Bed was comfy and Breakfast tasty - especially the porridge.'

Our weekend at the Russell hotel
5 stars 5

'As always very welcoming and very child friendly , our three young boys absolutely love staying at the Russell hotel, as do myself and my husband, the accommodation is always clean and the family room is fantastic for us as we are a family of five and find it difficult to get accommodation to suit us. We would recommend to friends and family and will certainly be visiting again. To sum our stay up I would say: fab hotel, very helpful and friendly staff, lovely food, fantastic accommodation, great location and brilliant for a family break.'

'Excellent! We were very pleased with our room - no. 8. It was very clean, bright and welcoming. The bedlinen was crisp white cotton and the towels soft and fluffy. Having a seperate room for the kids was idealand was the main reason for choosing the hotel in the first place. Breakfast was delicious, with lots of choice. Service was great - nothing was any trouble. We will definately book again when we come and visit our family in Scarborough aain. thank you for a great stay!'
