    The location is amazing and the restaurant el fresco is perfect to watch the sunset. The food is excellent as is the service.

    The room we had was very basic, no wardrobe or space in the bathroom. The corridoors dimly lit and the carpet in the bedrooms was so rough we could't walk around in bare feet! The building is old and it shows, however, the place has it's charm.

    Handy location and pleasant surrounds

    The restraunt is always a challenge, fabulous food but the head waiter has the attitude that it is a privilegde to dine there, rather than that they are there to make your experience good!

    The Duke's central location, one can pretty well walk wherever you want to go in Russell from the Duke and if you wish to go further afield Fullers booking office is right next door and they'll attend to any enquiries or reservations you may need. The Duke's staff were welcoming, friendly, courteous and at all times very professional. The Cuisine was great, my 9 yr old gt.grandaughter really loved the Steamed Green Lipped Mussels in Garlic and White Wine, in fact had them twice in one day. Russell is a very special place and if you haven't been there you don't know what you are missing. I just love it and you may quote me.

    The elderly may have a problem with the stairs. I was disppointed with the Calamari, it definately wasn't crispy but everything else including the staff was delightful.

    Exceptionally friendly staff at reception and in the restaurant. Bed very comfortable. Very good menu and extensive wine list. Excellent complimentary continental breakfast. Foyer /restaurant/lounge bar have the upmarket appearance of a gentleman's club.

    We don't like duvets and prefer blankets. With the duvets up, we were too hot, and with them thrown off, became too cold with the result that sleep was interrupted at least twice during the hight.

    The Duke of Marlborough is in a very picturesque location on the sea front. I was glad that I decided to stay in laid back Russell, which is a lovely town with tasteful shops and cafes. Back to the hotel,,,the staff are very helpful and friendly. Buffet breakfast was included and free wi fi.The bedroom was comfortable. The evening meal was exceptionally good. I had a wonderful stay and I would recommend it.

    Location was perfect. The deck looking out across the bay makes you want to sit there all night and drink one or more of the 100 wines on offer. The staff are very friendly and even helped carry out bags up the stairs. Room was very pleasant. Comfy bed and smartly tidied by room service. Food was excellent - especially the fresh fish.
