“What a lovely hotel!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2010

Hotel centrally located near the tower, staff are excellent and the food plentiful, varied, and we loved it! Good bar with nightly entertainment and a very friendly atmosphere.If i had any grumbles, i didnt find my bed that comfy and you should smell the disabled toilet! Overall would return no quibbles, which is more than i can say for most of the hotels ive stayed in in Blackpool!

Seven of us booked a coach trip through Diamond Holidays. Three adults, four teenagers.
Stayed at The Ruskin and there were many positives.
Room comfy and warm. Location just behind Tower and 5 mins walk from front. Warm and friendly atmosphere, very welcoming. Food absolutely fantastic, excellent choice, big portions, can't stress this point enough. Reception very helpful, printed off details for Sandcastle, Pleasure Beach and Zoo for us. In with the price of DB&B we had three trips, all for just over £200 each. Diamond and The Ruskin Hotel really did provide superb value for money.

having been to blackpool for the last 3 years the ruskin is the best place we have stayed.the staff were helpful and friendly,the hotel was clean and tidy.
although the entertainment was a bit loud it didnt carry out until very late.the food was lovely and the menus were different each day.
our 2 year old daughter loved eating ice cream for dessert every night and was given sweets by a staff member for being so well behaved which was a very kind thing to do so thank you very much.
we would definatly stay there again.

Stayed at Ruskin again this year had another fab weekend with my freinds and the people we have met as friends over the last few years .Staff are great and very helpful thanks to Philip the drinks waiter and Marcus the bar man who were very good and made you feel so welcome , we are returning again on 28th October 2011 so come along and join us we are a friendly bunch of scottish ladies , the only thing I would say is about the entertainment we would prefer if the disco was on all night even for 1 night as there is not a lot off time for dancing when the acts are finished and Declan is a good D.J.

What an excellent hotel! Friendly staff, excellent food and nice rooms. Excellent inhouse entertainment and so close to many leisure attractions and facilities. Debenhams and the shopping mall is right across the road. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, so much to do and we'll be back.

I have just returned from a coach holiday to the Blackpool Illuminations where i stayed for four nights at the Ruskin Hotel. On arrival, the hotel looked good from the outside which is always a relief! The reception area was welcoming and check in was fast, friendly and efficient.
I was pleased with the standard of my bedroom. Even though it could do with some updating, the bedroom was immaculately clean and very comfortable. The room was serviced every day to a high standard. There was a good flat screen television on the wall which had an excellent picture. In fact, it was the best quality picture i have seen on a hotel television for a long time. It even had freeview which was nice as not all hotels in some parts of the UK i have stayed in recently have updated to this yet. There was plenty of tea and coffee sachets in the room. Unfortunately, there were no packets of biscuits to have with your tea or coffee. This is only a minor detail, but it is nice to have some biscuits in your room. The bed itself was very comfortable and i slept well. The bathroom, although on the small side was absolutely adequate. It was extremely clean with towels replenished daily. There were also bottles of shampoo and shower gel and small boxes of soap. Even though i take my own toiletries, it was stiil good to see these available.
The food was absolutely superb. Breakfast was help yourself with choices of fruit, cereal & fruit juice. The cooked breakfast was also help yourself with a great choice of cooked items. You could have as much or as little as you wanted. Toast and tea or coffee were brought over to the table. After such a filling breakfast, i did'nt need to eat very much during the day as it kept me going. Also i knew that i was going back to a three course dinner together with tea or coffee in the evenings. The food in the evenings was fantastic. There was an excellent choice each evening and there really was something to suit everyone. The portions were so generous! You would never leave the restaurant in this hotel feeling hungry!! The starters alone were like main meals in themselves. The service in the restaurant was always excellent. The staff were efficient and very friendly. You were made to feel very welcome there.
There was entertainment most evenings at the hotel, in the bar area. With so much to see and do in Blackpool, i only managed to see the entertainment on one evening. It was a male singer who was singing hits from the 60's. He was very good indeed and everyone in the bar was enjoying it aswell. The bar at this hotel is very nice.
I had never been to Blackpool before and i did'nt really know what to expect, but i had a fantastic time made all the better by a lovely stay at this hotel. This hotel is also very central to the attractions of Blackpool. It's only a few munites walk to the Tower and the shopping area. There is so much to see and do in Blackpool you could never get bored there and I would definitely recommend a stay at this hotel to others.
Thankyou to all at the Ruskin Hotel for a very enjoyable stay.
