I was in a party of 4 people and we stayed just for the 1 night. The hotel is very clean and the owners are really friendly and give you a very warm welcome. The rooms are well maintained and the decor is nice. The food for breakfast is very good and quite filling. It is approx a 2 or 3 minute walk down to the sea front and is an ideal place to stay if you are planning on going to the fabulous Funny Girls as it is just around the corner. All in all a pleasant stay in comfy bed and I would recommend this hotel to family and friends. I will also probably stay here again myself.

This was a last minute booking at this hotel , due to circumstances of our previously booked hotel cancelling us at the last minute due to boiler breaking down, But we are so glad that this happened now as we wouldnt have found this hotel otherwise. The Rubens Hotel is perfectly situated for a top night out in Blackpool.Its very close to funnygirls and lots of good bars, we spent a nice saturday afternoon in Ma Kellys on talbot road, Entertainment was brilliant, get there early to get a table... Ashley from the Rubens was so helpfull , she told us the best places to go and pointed us in right direction to a lovely indian resturant . and got us 10% off lol .The hotel is very clean , and nothing is too much trouble, breakfast is very good , with as much tea and toast with the full english as you like. thought my husband was gonna take pattern off the plate lol.. we will definately be returning here......

Room Tip: we stayed on the top floor , very comfy beds , tea/ coffee facilities in room, could not fault it .

We have been back to Rubens in Blackpool for another short stay. This time we combined a shopping trip with a visit to Funnygirls christmas show. As usual we were greeted by Ashley and Lara , not as guests but like old friends. We were sniffed by Rex who enjoyed his ears being scratched then he retired to his pillow for a snooze! We would not stay anywhere else in blackpool now and I take their business cards to work so if any one asks me about Blackpool I hand them a card and tell them its the best place to stay. Lara continues to excell herself with breakfast and the empty plates prove that. We are looking forward to going again next year, its like going to visit old friends.

Room Tip: All rooms are good, comfy beds, clean en-suites, fluffy towels, what more can you ask for?

Just had one night whilst going on a celebration do at Funny Girls. Brilliant !!! Lovely couple, nice and clean. Will definately be booking again. The room was just what we wanted, my daughter and to be daughter in law. We were going to Funny Girls and the walk was just three minutes. Good breakfast and friendly staff. We will be booking again.

Room Tip: This is lovely and good value.
