Tatty but good size
Nice sized room in annex, had own bathroom and kitchen area, good size room bed and sofa, its all just dated and in need of modernising, bathroom had questionable hairs in

Give Russell Hotel a go!
The Russell Hotel was a treat. I appreciate having breakfast included. My room was enormous and well appointed with large wardrobes. The staff was quick to respond to requests. I slept very well. The hotel is within walking distance to the train and the high street. Be warned the streets are quite hilly.

Comfortable but a bit "tired"
Overall our stay was comfy enough, room was ok and bed nice and soft. There were tell tale signs of it being in need of some tlc however. Just little things like tap inlay missing, ill fitting doors/drawers, lacklustre decor. Breakfast was very good and staff all very polite and friendly. Situation of hotel ideal, just a stones throw from centre. So overall a good stay without being outstanding.

Staff friendly, rooms need a refresh
Like other reviewers, I found the staff very friendly, top marks for that. English breakfast was pretty good. Our room had a new bathroom - or shower room I should say - which was very clean and modern, albeit the shower wasn't very high pressure, but it did have both overhead rainfall showerhead as well as standard detachable spray which was nice. The bedroom was ok but could use a bit of modernisation, small TV. Mattress very soft which is either good or bad depending on what you like I guess. Good location. Car park full on Saturday night, wasn't a problem for us as we arrived early, not sure if you'd have to find somewhere else if you arrived late on a Saturday at a busy time of year.

Faulty Towers but with charming staff (sofriendly)
the staff were really wonderful (no exaggeration) - central location - very convenient - breakfast cooked to order (less waste than a buffet) - all the guests were there - the building is old and has needed significant investment in upkeep over the years - single-glazed windows, ancient (but functional) shower and incandescent lightbulb

A magnificent building that needs more love.
Not too bad a hotel, for the money that I paid. The staff were friendly, the breakfast was lovely and the bed and furnishings were generally comfy. However, the hotel is in dire need of a lick of paint and total redecoration, if it wants to score higher in guest's opinions. I would guess that the wallpaper in the public areas has been up since the 1990's. These areas were badly scuffed, along with some of the paintwork, and it seemed that little thought had gone into colour matching. The hotel could also do with some effective double glazing to combat noise from the busy roads outside. A magnificent old building that, with some more love and attention from a good interior designer, could potentially become a palace of luxury for the discerning traveller.

Fair 4.0
I'll not stay here again.
The bedroom was 'tired' and was very dull, not pleasant. The bedside tables hadn't been moved to clean and a papaer sheet and an empty orange drink carton was on the floor. The lights over the bed didn't work. The server at breakfast was going to lay the table with a spillage of liquid and sugar on the table. The full English breakfast was not very big and of poor quality and not hot.
