The Russel Hotel
I've booked for 2 nights but I had to cancel the second night. beds were old and the bedding is so thin we couldn't sleep due to the coldness. We had to wait 10 minutes before we could order our breakfast. Dissapointed
Rusty water. Disgusting ”
The Russel is a fine budget hotel except for the disgusting water. I took a bath upon arrival it was the color of a light tea. I assume rust. Ok I thought not good but not harmful. Then at breakfast the hot water for the instant coffee being served was the same color. I can understand and accept problems. But no bottle water in the room to drink. Disgusting (was it rust) water for coffee. So I can’t recommend. I suspect the solution is expensive but that’s definitely needed.
Hotel is great value for money since I got 60%+ discount when booking but a few things need improvement: 1) The intercom at the motor gate is on the wall next to the gate. This means one has to climb out of your car to announce your arrival. 2) There are no info sheets in the room, so you have to phone reception on your cell to ask dialing code for room service, breakfast times & wifi key. None of this was told to us by receptionist upon arrival. 3) The light next to the bathroom in our room wasn't working. 4) The shower over bath is a messy business since the screen has not been properly installed. There are gaps where water sprays through and it is not high enough. 5) The beds are not comfy. Mattresses are hard. 6) Breakfast over 3 days had problems: 6.1) Receptionist takes orders while juggling her other duties. 6.2) Toast is cold when served. 6.3) Serviettes have to be asked for. 6.4) One day no glasses were put out for pouring cold beverages. Good things: 1) Great breakfasts.
Good value for money 😄”
We enjoyed our short stay and were pleasantly surprised at the good value for money. We had a lovely large, well-appointed room, were warmly welcomed, had safe parking and enjoyed an excellent breakfast. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Got great value for money ”
Agoda gave a good deal that wasn’t even on offer at the hotel reception. Room was very convenient, clean, with microwave n fridge,plush carpet, condiments, complimentary water, AC, quiet area, safe parking. TV had a very snowy picture though. Found some bitting bugs in my bed which upset me but I reported that to staff next day - I hope it gets sorted! Breakfast was good! Happy overall, would come back.
Great stay! Breakfast was lovely. The staff was very nice. Only one wall air conditioner in the first room so second room was warm but it was also a very hot day. The rooms were very clean and comfortable.
Staff were very accommodating, it was really value for money and the breakfast was very lovely ”
In a s good location not far from the waterfront and the mall really central
Nice simple Hotel”
Nice big rooms, and delicious breakfast
Stayed there one night. Although the location is centralized, the hotel is fair at best. Not sure why the ratings of this hotel are so high.
Easily accessible. Clean and hygienic. Convenience of free access irrespective of time of day.”
Own gate remote and access door to rooms. Front desk gentleman was outstanding!! Breakfast variations had a little too much bacon (non-pork eaters) . Overall excellent!!
centrally located and friendly staff”
A good all rounder for a simple hotel, with decent breakfast and comfortable rooms. Friendly staff and central location with easy walk to town and waterfront.
Nice hotel handy to town.”
Nice clean spacious room handy to town. Great breakfast. The wifi didn't work in the room. The TV was all snowy and hard to see. They changed our room, but nothing more annoying than travelling all day, unpacking, sitting down to relax and finding the TV doesn't work. Then having to repack and move grrrr. Things should be checked every day.
Great stay at the Russel hotel ”
It was lovely
intermediate stop on the way to Cape Town”
Great Value for Money”
I loved this place. It's in a modest part of town vs. the swanky tourist area, but the hotel and room were spotless and the service was extremely friendly and attentive. The included breakfast was delicious. Best value for the money of any hotel I can remember staying in.
short but very nice
