The River View suites offer spacious rooms with expansive views of the Port Owen Marina and Berg River Basin from your private patio. Their Garden View suites are fitted with spacious king-size beds plus lovely en-suite bathrooms. These are situated on the ground floor with lush views of the garden.

Russel on the Port’s prime position on the water’s edge of the Port Owen Marina in the peaceful village of Velddrif makes it the ideal setting for your special function, with nothing to distract or detract from your wedding reception, birthday party, year-end function, corporate function, or conference.
