we booked to stay here because it was close to funny girls and Ma Kellys. it is in a perfect location and just round the corner from the train station.
the rooms were clean and comfortable and Lara and Ashley treated us like friends and really looked after us and we were kept well supplied with tea and toast with our breakfast.
would recommend this hotel to firends and family and we will be back next year.

Room Tip: we had room 103 which had 3 single beds. usually we have rooms with a double and a single bed so it...

Have stayed previously and was really impressed. So booked up for my daughters 18th as she was having it at funny girls and never even contemplated staying anywhere else. There were 18 of us staying and we were made to feel so welcome and Lara and Ashley could not do enough for us all. Everyone was of the same opinion. Would definitely recommend Rubens to anyone

Booked this hotel because of the excellent reviews it had on here, and we werent disappointed. Very clean, very very friendly and helpful hosts, and we had a large room with a comfortable bed on the top floor. Very close to the Tower and Winter Gardens (necessary as we attended the brilliant Rebellion fest).

Can I highly recommend an Italian restaurant nearby called Mamas too? Went twice during our stay :D

After staying here for two nights in 2011 we decided on our next trip to blackpool to stay again. Just as we remembered. Asley and Lara are welcoming and friendly, as well as informative of local places to eat, drink etc. The room spacious and no more or no less than what we needed. As we were on the top floor we were able to open windows for ventilation, which was much needed in current hot weather! Breakfast lovely. Choice of full English or anything from it, cereals and toast. Will definitely stay here again when next in town!

Thanks to the hospitality of Lara and Ashley my husband and I have had a fantastic time in Blackpool. We arrived 21/6/2013 and left on 23/06/2013. The Girls are really sociable and helpful nothing is too much trouble. All we had to do was ask for information about where to eat on an evening and they will recommend where they have been and have found reasonable in price but good on the food and service. Reubens is a lovely hotel on Lord Street and near to the center of Blackpool and night life. The hotel is nicely presented and very clean. I suggest that you give this venue ago. We have now stayed there twice and have booked again for November 2013.
