I looked at the Tripadvisor reviews before choosing this hotel and was not disappointed. I was welcomed at the door by Lara and Ashley who are very friendly and gave good advice on where to eat and drink etc in Blackpool. I stayed Friday and Saturday nights and the hotel was excellent. The full English breakfast was tasty and not... More

Stayed at Rubens last weekend with a friend, paid £45 for the room which is a good price for Blackpool, usually pay £50+ so can't complain at the price. The owners were welcoming and friendly, cannot fault them at all. The hotel is a stones throw from the train station which was really handy and only a short walk from... More

The Rubens Hotel is an excellent place to stay wether you are travelling alone or in a group. Myself and 9 other girls stayed here for an end of season darts celebration for the weekend. From walking through the door we was greeted with a warm welcoming and friendly atmosphere which made our weekend a fantastic one. Thanks girls (Ashley... More

As my partner and I were coming to Blackpool for one night for a concert, we were overwhelmed by the choice of accommodation available. After looking for gay friendly, reasonably priced B&Bs near the train station with good reviews, we narrowed it down to a handful. (Rubens won because I thought the teddies on the bed were a cute touch!)... More

Had another weekend break in Blackpool to see a show and stayed at Rubens. For value, location and great customer service, you wont beat Rubens. Lara and Ashley are excellent hosts and the breakfasts are "to die for". Most local attractions are within walking distance with some great bars and restaurants close by too. The choice of hotel can usually... More

My first time at Rubens. I was made to feel welcome even before I arrived. I slept well and had perfect breakfasts, well that's what a good B&B is all about isn't it? I can't fault the service, I was very well looked after during my stay in Blackpool. My first time at Rubens will not be the last.
