“cant beat this hotel”
Reviewed 13 November 2012

Just Returned from a 3 day trip at BLACKPOOL Staying at the RUSKIN for the 6th time.
IF you want lovely food, and a clean and friendly hotel this is it
staff were lovely and friendly and very helpful
the hotel was also very well heated as it was very cold outside.
the bar was very nice and the prices very reasonable. cant wait to go back next year, rooms very nice especially the deluxe rooms.
its in an ideal location very central and handy for everything

There were 14 family members on the trip and all said it was a decent hotel. The rooms were a reasonable size, well equipped and clean.
The staff were pleasant and helpful and the food is of a good quality. Breakfasts are good and the evening menu although not extensive was well cooked.

I have just read the review by Bigdona, Dunbar and I wonder if it a review for the Ruskin. We have visited the Ruskin on three occasions this year and will be back again early December. Our last visit was at the end of September.Every visit we have had has been first class. Staff very friendly ably led by Graham the manager, food excellent, entertainment good. When we visit the Ruskin it is like a reunion where we meet many returning guests, probably one of the best testiments the hotel can have.

Just returned from a 5 day stay (15th - 19th October) to celebrate my wife's 64th birthday. What a wonderful time we had. All of the staff from the Manager, Graham, through reception, restaurant, bar staff right through to cleaners were very pleasant, polite & helpful.
The whole hotel was very clean & centrally located. The food was excellent. We will definitlely use use this hotel again if we visit Blackpool.
Well done all round.

Firstly we want to say a huge big thanks to the management (Graham) & staff at the Ruskin for making our 'whole' wedding day an amazing experience....& especially Phil who oversaw that everything ran so smoothly & made sure nothing was to much trouble.....from arriving on the red carpet to the fabulous food & service to the evening do with the amazing buffet & great DJ - we couldnt have asked for a better place to have our wedding - the feedback from our family & guests was just what we wanted & we couldnt have asked for any more - 'food superb' 'best wedding ever' 'dont want the day to end' - We would recommend anyone to have your wedding there - one of our friends was at the grand hotel in lytham the week before & said the ruskin beat it hands down. thanks from the bottom of our hearts - the food was amazing Carol & Mark Bretherton xxx oh & a lovely honeymoon room comes with the package & the fab all you can eat breakfast the next day was simply delicious.
