Did a day trip to Veldrif from Cape Town , about 1.5hrs on 24 Sept 2021. Drove around & found Russells on the Port by chance , right on the Marina. What a great find. Very peaceful setting overlooking with Marina with many boats moored....The property was really well maintained . As it was a pleasant morning we sat outside. All the necessary covid protocols were done and we were served immediately. Chose a full breakfast , food arrived fairly quickly and was perfect , especially the bacon . Was good value for money . Really lovely setting and great experienceMore
They would have gotten a five star rating. Only two things got to me. One, it took forever to get the food out. I know good food takes time but this was crazy. Secondly was the music. It really was annoying. Not that type of...music that sets the vibe that would suit such a fabulous restaurant. Now that we got the cons out of the way, let’s go to the pros. Beautiful restaurant. Friendly service. The food was fantastic. We got a platter for two. Best chicken wings I have had and the pork belly was up there too. My husband hates onion rings but he loved the ones they served us. Such a fabulous lunch after a day of flower viewing. Next time we will get a room so we can stay for dinner as well….More
We stayed here one evening and every was awesome. The rooms were big with large beds, awesome facilities and such a nice view. Awesome restaurant and really cannot complain about anything. Very helpful and friendly staff. Amazing stay and history behind the hotel
Our group of 17 stayed at Russels this week and cant believe the type of exemplary service we received. The waitrons and the Receptionist were on their feet with our requests and service. It is the best place if anyone wants to.be treated like royalties,...that's the place to go. Our sincere thanks to Anthea, Lauren and entire housekeeping team for their attention and friendly attitudes, keep it upMore
When last have you been surprised with your first meal of the day. This Port Owen gem is a must. We were 2 couples. We were welcomed seated and served so professionally, extra bonus was our beautifully plated meals, hot tea and coffee and stunning...views of the yacht club. The rooms we viewed were also top class. Thank you everyone, we will be back for dinner sooooon.More
