Russell Hotel

Russell HotelWith style and comfort coupled with convenience, this hotel set in the very centre of historic Tunbridge Wells is positioned on the edge of the rural common. The hotel was built as a residence in the Victorian era and became one of the town's leading hotels in the 1920s. Set on the edge of the verdant common, it is still only a short stroll from the shops, restaurants, cafes and theatres.

All our rooms are en suite, and have a TV and tea/coffee making facility. Some of our rooms look across the common and some across the town. We have 5 studio suites, which have a kitchenette with toaster, fridge, sink and microwave. These rooms also come with sofa, desk, and free internet connection. These rooms are in the annex building and are very popular with people who are working in the town for a long time and want a homely feeling. Many people leave the car in the hotel park to go to work in the town (parking is free for our guests).

Area information

Royal Tunbridge Wells lies at the heart of one of the most scenic stretches of countryside in England, surrounded by the unspoilt beauty of the Weald. In Georgian times this popular spa town gained a reputation as the place to see and be seen amongst royalty and fashionable members of the aristocracy. Retaining much of the charm and elegance of its Georgian heyday, Royal Tunbridge Wells and the surrounding area remains a favoured destination for those who want to enjoy elegant surroundings in the countryside, a short distance from the hustle and bustle of London.
