We had our christmas dinner at the Ruskin and cannot say that we have one complaint, we had a party of 9 and everybody was more than happy with their meals, they had Santa for the kids with a gift which was a nice touch! It was the first time our family had ever eaten out at christmas so we was a bit wary at first but the Ruskin made it a lovely day! I would defo recommend to any one :)

This review does go back a while but I was so impressed I am writing this all these years later because after travelling all over the UK for many years, I have never had such a great breakfast.

The chef must have been from The Ritz, believe me I know my food.

Each mushroom was exactly the same size, as if they had been measured! Perfect little buttons each one and exactly the same colour!

The eggs where perfectly round with yolks sat in the middle. Perfect bacon equally lengthed...

I could go on, just the best.

Great little hotel, stayed there a lot in my travelling, suited days.

Five stars.

Sat/Sun 1st/2nd Feb - not the best time for visiting Blackpool - cold, wet and windy and very quiet. However, we needed a break so booked the Ruskin. Been here before and enjoyed our stay. As usual staff very friendly and food excellent (stayed dbb). Room slightly small but spotless and bed very comfortable. Only gripe was that we paid the standard room rate which we would normally consider good value for money - however, it is more than the 'Cabaret' weekends which have entertainment on each night! Because the hotel was so quiet there was no entertainment on at all(understandably) but I still feel that we have paid more for less! Moral of story - make sure it is a 'Cabaret' weekend before you book!! Did discuss this with receptionist who kindly pointed out that 'Cabaret' weekends were lower priced to 'fill the hotel'! Would still recommend the hotel though!!

Stayed 2 nights 25/26 January 14 booked in deluxe rooms, a complete let down ! Rooms were basic, clean but still basic, grouting in shower area full of mould. Breakfast really good served by friendly staff, dinner average, not much choice for dessert, possibly due to low bookings the dates we booked, choice was kept to minimum, which leads to the bar facilities in the evening ! Due to low bookings the bar promptly closed at 9.45pm leaving a choice of spirits served in miniature bottles or bottles of beer! Note to bar manager, paying guest expect the facility of a licensed bar this includes the service of bar staff ! Yes the hotel was quiet this is no exuse to close the bar without warning leaving guest to either put up or shut up - we ordered a taxi to finish what was a birthday celebration week end else where.
