Welcome to the Russel – Grounded in Goodness


At The Russel we’re bringing back the word "GOOD"!


One of the most underrated words, 'Good' doesn't mean less - in fact, it means more! From the 'Good Night' you'll get staying with us, to the 'Good Morning, how did you sleep?' at your super-healthy Breakfast, 'Good' is what we offer.

We're also passionate about local! From baking our own bread for you, right here in the hotel (Knysna) and stocking a range of premium range of Knysna-brewed craft beers, to sourcing only the freshest ingredients (free-range where possible), toiletries and more. It’s our way of sharing the best of local with you, naturally...
