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

Just got back from a 2 night stay with my partner (both late 40's). Lovely clean room with high standard en suite bathroom. Ash and Lara both friendly and extremely helpful. Breakfast to die for. Very reasonably priced, close to town centre/nightlife. We were given a discount card for various venues/eateries which we made use of! definatley will go back... More

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
