I honestly can't praise the Ruskin enough. Absolutely excellent food considering it was wedding catering. The plates were hot, the food was fantastic and plentiful and the staff were attentitive. If you're looking for a small, intimate family wedding I would highly recommend. Thanks also to the management for being so helpful organising accomodation for the family.

The Bedrooms could do with a facelift, and the hotel would benefit, if it had air condition. The bedroom was very small and very hot (uncomfortable), it was a good job the Hotel provided a fan for the Bedroom. The radiator was left on in the bathroom which the manager had to turn off and there was a broken hinge... More

Been coming here on a yearly basis for over 10 years. Great location - everything easily accessible. Amazing food and service. Friendly, helpful staff who genuinely care. Clean rooms - great for singles,couples or families - bar and entertainment too. Never not been 100% happy.

Spent a very pleasant 5 day break at Ruskin on 16th June. I have to say the food is the best we have EVER experienced in our many trips to Blackpool. I thought perhaps the quality might have slipped a bit but no, everything was freshly cooked and all vegetables were fresh and not from a freezer shop. Portions were... More
