    Romance in the Rocks

    The Russell is a quaint hotel befitting the Rocks. We had a lovely room that opened on to an enclosed courtyard. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The discount at the Fortune of War bistro was welcome. It is an easy walk from the car park. If you like antique Cedar furniture you will be very happy here.
