“We strive to make every guest’s stay at Russell House a very special experience. Our guests are made to feel relaxed and at home in luxurious surroundings and being featured in lists like this, confirms that we are getting things right. We never rest on our laurels and look forward to an even better year in 2020."Peter and Stephen are already taking bookings for 2021. Peter added: “The article in The Guardian has been excellent publicity for us and we have already had many enquiries. We even have a lady visiting us from South Carolina, America.”
