I've just returned from a weekend at The Ruskin with the parents. We've past this hotel many a time but finally decided to stay. It makes such a difference staying in a hotel rather than the typical Blackpool B&B.
Overall our experience was brilliant, the staff were great, very polite and always happy to help. We stayed during a cabaret weekend so there was an offer for Dinner, Bed and Breakfast and we were not disappointed, the food was fantastic. The evening meal was 4 courses and there was plenty of choice, very filling and tasty, you could even help yourself to 2 puddings :) The breakfast was fantastic, huge selection of cereals, fruit and a full English with as much toast, tea and coffee that you could manage!
The rooms we had were not fantastic but don't let this put you off as they have better rooms for an additional supplement but the most important thing is they were clean, our only issue was they were very small for a double but we only slept in there as we were out all day.
The bar was nice, quite cheap drinks and it was separated into public and resident areas. It was lovely to get back in the evening and have a few drinks before bed.
One thing which I was surprised about is it appears to allow pets, although I never read this anywhere online or in the brochure but a family had a dog and whenever they left it in the room it whimpered! Thankfully it was quiet through the night but I know this could put some people off, this was the only negative really and don't get me wrong I love dogs, I have one of my own but I don't think hotels are a place for your pets.
On the whole a great hotel and I will definitely return next time I visit Blackpool!
