Reviewed 17 August 2010

Given Russell's markets itself as 'a restaurant with rooms' my husband and I were expecting fantastic things of the food (having checked their website it all looked fabulous). However the food was VERY disappointing - average at best. Given how plush the rest of the establishment is, I was really suprised - we even decided against dessert based on starters and mains, which were very over-priced given the quality (£10 average for starters, and my very small main of uninspiring pasta around £14 if memory serves). On the second night of our stay we ventured to somewhere else nearby (the Swan) where the food was delicious, and much cheaper.

That said, Russell's is a beautiful place to stay - the room (we stayed in number 7 - a large suite) was stunning. The main room was beautifully furnished, comfortable and given it faced onto the main street, for the most part quite peaceful. The bathroom was bigger than any I've seen before and very impressive. Based on the quality of the rooms and the friendliness of the service, I have no issues with Russells' at all, and would happily stay there again - but I wouldn't be in a rush to eat there again.

A 'restaurant with rooms' - No. A stunning hotel with an ok restaurant - Yes.

Having never been to Cotswolds before we did much research to find an establishment thet met all our requirements and we werent disappointed, in fact it was better than we expected.

Our three night stay in luxurious surroundings, excellent food and the most friendly and helpful staff you could wish to meet was topped by the hot sunny weather, so much so we ate breakfast outside ..... magic!

If we ever in the area again we would certainly stop there.

My wife and I recently stayed here for one night. The hotel is located right in the heart of the village of Broadway. The room we had was very spacious, clean and well furnished with an excellent bathroom and very comfortable bed. The staff were very relaxed and friendly. We couldn't have asked for anything more. Breakfast was included in the price, and was excellent and so substantial that you are unlikely to need much else to eat for the rest of the day! The only (small) problem was that the restaurant was the other side of the wall, and we could hear conversation.

Booked for 2 nights, with dinner on Saturday night. Absolutely perfect for a rare weekend without the kids. Decor, service and food are all faultless. We will be back again. The highlight of Broadway. Thank you for making this a special break for us. The Reeves's.

Russell's is a wonderful hotel - everything was just as we wanted for our 31st anniversary. The room was really lovely, furniture is beautifully crafted, a wonderful bed and the thickest curtains to shut out the light and double glazing to cut out any traffic noise. The in room tea/coffee facilities are great - a huge choice of tea bags and fresh milk available from the fridge on the landing. My husband had one of the espressos on the landing which he was really impressed with. Breakfast was absolutely delicious - full breakfast or kippers or smoked salmon and scrambled eggs , thick toast and croissants.We had dinner there and it was really lovely and the service was excellent - cannot praise the Russell too highly.
