“Wonderfull location and restauraunt”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2013

Ruths hotel is located in Old Skagen just a few steps from the ocean and in a very scenic area of the Danish West coast. We visited the hotel the first week-end of September and had a very good reception service and a nice clean room in the "Strandhuset" (a bit small though).
In the evening we had pre-ordered a 5 course Surprise menu composed by Cheff Michel Marchaud - and that was one of our best dinners ever. The wine card has a very nice selection of wines but the prices are very high.
All in all a visit to Ruths is recommended but also a bit pricy.

Room Tip: Avoid "Strandhuset " if you wish a spacey hotel room. "Strandhuset" apartments...

Great place, the top of Denmark, Best location close to the sea, wellness Spa facilities, Food is excellent, multiple choices, Gourmet Restaurant with the famous Chef Michaud, Great Bistro, and next door an original Spanish Tapas Restaurant, very kind and professional staff, high service level is clearly a high priority, not because they feel obligated, but because they like it and enjoy happy guests!
I will come back

Just back from a Danish holiday in Copenhagen and Skagen. At Ruths we had a high quality stylish suite, in a good location. Skagen is a unique and lovely place. But beware peak holiday season (mid July). The hotel bar and restaurant is too crowded and there is no priority system for hotel guests. Also, as with all things in Denmark, prices are eye-wateringly expensive for tourists. Do visit Grenen, where the Skaggerak and Kategatt meet, and Rabjerg Mile - unique places.

Room Tip: Stay in main building outbuildings would be a pain during poor weather. Our suite on ground floor ne...

Juli måned er den travleste tid på året, og mange gæster kommer netop for at opleve det hyggelige og festlige stemning i Skagen. Resten af året er det muligt at opleve et langt mere stille og fredeligt Gl. Skagen.

Ruths Hotel har 2 restauranter; Ruths Gourmet kører med helt almindelig bordreservation, mens vores klassiske, franske Brasserie kører uden bordreservationer. Alle får plads i Ruths Brasserie, men der kan være ventetid på et bord. Ventetiden fordrives oftest med et glas i den hyggelige pejsestue som en del af oplevelsen og boende gæster prioriteres altid foran udefrakommende ved bordbestilling til kl. 18:00 men herefter i den rækkefølge man ankommer.

In Old Skagen we have stayed many, many times and love the atmosphere here and it's only a short cardrive to Skagen or you can rent a bicycle. A short walk to the sanddunes and the same to the sea where you can see the sun setting. The hotel is old but they renovated the place not many years ago. You can also stay at Strandhotellet it belongs to Ruth's hotel and it's only a short walk down the road. We have also stayed there many times and love that too. About the rooms it's much up to you what you want to pay, so I'll just say that we've loved all rooms we've stayed in. We recoment this hotel.

We stayed at the Ruths hotel in Skagen for one night in May. The place was busy, we enjoyed our time so much we wanted to add another night but the rooms were sold out.

This place was recommended to us from our danish friends and we thoroughly enjoyed it. There are 2 restaurants to choose from. We originally booked in for the fine dining restaurant, but once we got there and after having a late lunch, we decided to change to the more casual brasserie. It was fantastic! Great views, great ambience, and great food. I'm sure the formal restaurant would have been amazing, but we were in the mood for the more lively and fun setting of the brasserie. We had champagne in the sitting area outside of the restaurant while we waited for a table.

The rooms were fine, very clean and white, typically danish. comfortable. They were pricey, but so is everything here so hard to compare it to others.

The hotel is close to the sea and not in the city centre - I'm not sure how long of a walk it is, but we used our car and it was a short drive. We did lunch in the city center the next day as we wanted to experience that as well - its a cute town.

We really enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it to others and definitely stay here again.

We used to come to Ruths hotel every year. This summer we found the quality of service and of the rooms to have detoriated. While we earlier years felt very welcome, we now found that the quality of the rooms, the common areas and the breakfast buffet was reduced. The attention of the reception staff seemed to be directed towards the Danish customers (probably returning more frequently than us). We will probably not return to Ruths hotel next year.

It is just so relaxing to stay at Ruth’s hotel in Skagen. The service is simply unique and the staff extremely friendly. You will meet a world class receptionist when checking in and be given a tour of the hotel. The breakfast is great. After a fantastic meal in the gourmet restaurant I recommend to relax by the fireplace with cappuccino and petit fours. I have stayed here several times on a romantic weekend and also stayed there with 2 children once. They also loved the relaxing atmosphere and luxury surroundings. Today when I go to Skagen to stay in my own summer house I always come back to the hotel to visit anyway. I still want to stay there from time to time.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Ruths Hotel is a historic seaside hotel located in the heart of a idyllic village called Gl. Skagen that is surrounded by dunes with lyme grass and rose hip bushes and also the beach with the legendary sunset plaza on the Top of Denmark. The hotel itself consists today of four buildings with rooms and apartments designed with Danish furnitures and typical Scandinavian beach side hotel style, an underground parking garage, conference facilities and romantic banquet facilities - all within 200 meters. In the main building of Ruths Hotel is besides the reception also a wellness and spa area with a heated therapy pool, exercise machines, sauna, steam room, massage shower, and the option to book massages, beauty and fitness treatments. The culinary experince in a cozy setting can be enjoyed either in Ruths Brasserie or Ruths Gourmet with our gastronomic head chef Dennis Juhl. Between the two restaurants is our lounge, where a cup of coffee with some exclusive pampering of the sweet tooth can be enjoyed by the crackling fire from the fireplace. Despite the fact that we are a five-star hotel and many describes Ruths Hotel as a luxury hotel, we actually don't strive to give a luxury experience. We want to give our guests a five-star experience of exclusive life enjoyment, and it is with this exclusive pampering that you will experience how the heart rate drops by 10 beats, the body is forced to relax and you will achieve a sensation of presence and time for each other. We can not help it - It's in our nature ... more   less
