BEST WESTERN Russell Hotel

BEST WESTERN Russell Hotel is an exceptionally elegant Victorian building, situated only a mile from Maidstone town centre and easily accessible from both the M20 or M2 motorways. To offer choice as well as charm, we have 42 en-suite bedrooms, including 2 honeymoon suites, 6 family rooms and 5 conference suites. Its little wonder that the accommodation here is so heavenly, with the building having previously been known as the Sacred Heart Convent School!

If you like plenty of room with a view, then take time out in our beautiful landscaped gardenscomplete with sun terraces and Palm trees that add a touch of the exotic to our exterior. All residents receive free use of the local David Lloyd Leisure Club, a 5 minute drive away in Maidstone, and Free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, as well as parking for up to 100 cars.

Local tourist attractions in Kent, such as Leeds Castle, Kent Life, Historic Dockyard Chatham, Rochester Castle and much, much more will really make your break. And for the shopaholics, Bluewater is only 20 miles away.

For lunch or dinner back at the hotel, tuck in at a table in our elegant Garden Restaurant where our Chefs will tempt your taste buds with the freshest local ingredients - all as delicious as our wonderful surroundings!
