Fabulous B &B just a 5 minute walk from the train station & a 5 minute walk into town. Ashley & Lara give you a really warm friendly welcome. The rooms are spotless & modern. Considering how close you are to the town it is very quiet. The Full English Breakfast is lovely. Highly recommended.

Great location close to the train station, bars, clubs, attractions and town centre shops. Rooms are always clean. Breakfasts always plentiful with extra toast and coffee, and hosts-Ashley & Lara-wonderful and can never do enough :)

stayed at Rubens on several occasions. It's in a great location close to the train station, bars, clubs & town centre shops. Rooms are always extremely clean, breakfasts plentiful and hosts Ash & Lara can never do enough for you. Would recommend this place to anyone for a short weekend break or longer.

We normally get a hotel on our trip to Blackpool but we opted for a B n B this time. We were very pleased at how friendly and amenable the owners were. Nothing was too much bother and it didn't have that Blackpool B and B feel about it that I recall from the 80's and 90's. The beds were... More

All we really care about when we go anywhere is how clean the place is where we stay, the rest is just bonus! This place really is spotless and the owner was extremely kind and helpful! Great stay!! Just a short walk from the north pier! And yummy breakfast made to our liking! Thanks rubens!

Spent a long weekend in Blackpool and stayed at the Rubens. Ashley & Lara are great hosts, the room was spotless and the breakfast was great. Located at the North Pier it's a five-ten minute walk to the Tower and other attractions. Well worth a stay if your in the area.

Made a spontaneous trip to Blackpool and stayed at Rubens again. It really is the best hotel in Blackpool. Lara & Ashley are the perfect hosts ever and really looked after us. Most of the rooms have had a refurbishment and are always comfortable and clean (spotless in fact) and the breakfast is "to die for". If you want to... More
