“Excellent value; friendly and attentive service”
Reviewed 16 September 2010

We received a really friendly welcome, both Lara and Ashley were exceptionally helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The Hotel is very clean and tidy and the full English breakfast was both generous and well presented. Excellent value.

What can i say that has not been said already. Both Ashley and Lara are the perfect hosts. They really know how to make your stay very special. The rooms are Brilliant, spotless and clean,The bed was to die for, it was a real effort getting up in the morning, i just wanted to have a lay in.
The breakfast service was excellent, nothing was too much trouble, and yes, they did remove the mushrooms for me.
When i return to blackpool in the future, i will definitely be booking my stay here, hopefully a little longer than my last visit

This was our first trip to Blackpool and I don't think we could have stayed at a better hotel. Ash (my new bestest friend) & Lara are fab girls, so welcoming. The rooms are spotless and the breakfasts were great, especially this mornings, black pudding brought in by special request. Nothing appears to be too much trouble for these two and when we go back to Blackpool we will definitely be staying at the Rubens again.

To anyone wanting to just relax in a top friendly hotel go to rubans.The two lassiessss were so brill and always had the time of day for us,The room was perfect lovely and clean and warm,the breakfast was just right and you was always being asked if you required more food.Not many hotels give you that service.Had a great laugh in bar and everyone joined in its been a pleasure once again to stay here.
Ps regarding the review in july 12th punter who wrote that must have been in another world as we were there at the same time and Lara was full of beans.Never mind he will realise his mistake he he he! Will defo be back when light on see you soon T&L xxx

This is the second time we have stayed at Rubens. And we will be back! It's always clean and welcoming, Lara does a cracking breakfast. Convenient for all attractions yet never too noisy. The rooms are charming and come with their own friendly special guest (teddy). The bar is great to relax in after all the sea air. Ash and Lara recommend the best places to eat etc and you cannot beat that personal touch. Also very reasonable, We cannot recommend Rubens enough and look forward to visiting soon. (If you have time and the appetite visit AJ's just round the corner)

This was our 2nd stay at Rubens and as before we couldnt fault our stay. The rooms are spotless and very relaxing, we had a better nights sleep than in our own bed!
The service was friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was fantastic even though we were awkward with our choice of food etc.
we would definately recommend this hotel and will be visiting again in the near future.

First of all, sorry to Ashley and Lara for taking a while to do this review!
We got back from Rubens a few weeks ago and it was a wonderful experience! We had previously booked a different hotel in Blackpool but had found awful reviews on this site so after more research we decided to go with Rubens and thank god we did!!
Ashley gave us a friendly welcome when we arrived and didn't mind at all that our train had been a bit later than we had first planned.
The room was lovely and clean, as was our bathroom. We were free to come and go as we wished and there was a helpful booklet of places to go and see and eat left for us in our room.
The breakfast was lovely!
We really enjoyed our time in Blackpool and are very grateful to Ashley and Lara and look forward to coming back as we didn't have time to pack in everything we wanted to do!
Thank you very much guys!
