About Us

BEST WESTERN the Russell Hotel sits in a lovely, tranquil area of Maidstone, Kent, and is a great spot from which to explore Kent and beyond, as it’s close to both the M20, junction 6 and 7 and  M2.  Only a mile from Maidstone town centre and its wonderful shopping at Fremlin Walk and The Mall.  Why not stay with us whilst visiting Leeds Castle "the most beautiful Castle in the World", Kent Life, the Hop Farm, Buckmore Park Karting Circuit or even for those shopaholics, Bluewater Shopping Centre is only 20 minutes away. 

BEST WESTERN the Russell Hotel has been refurbished to a high standard throughout, whilst still keeping the charm and character of the original Victorian building.  The hotel is very well known to many local people who remember it as the "Sacred Heart" Convent School.

We DO NOT HAVE A LIFT, although all our bedrooms are on the first or second floors, and all of our Superior rooms are on the ground floor.  Why not come and stay with us on your way over to Europe, as the Eurostar is a short distance away or when you need to catch the ferry from Dover.

We are a fantastic venue to hold Weddings, from small intimate ceremonies to large evening receptions, we are licensed to hold civil ceremonies or partnerships.  Come along to our Wedding Fayre on Sunday 24th February from 11am and have a look!

The hotel has 42 well appointed unique bedrooms, many overlooking the pretty landscaped lawns with raised sun terraces.  We also have 5 conference and meeting rooms, all with natural daylight and air-conditioning, and we offer very competitive rates for Daily Delegate requirements and 24 hour delegate requirements.   So why not hold your next conference, event or private party with us.   We are also very proud to be a Silver Green Tourism Award Winner.

The rooms are spacious and bright with all the amenities you would expect from a BEST WESTERN Hotel.
