“First class hotel situated in the centre of Blackpool”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2010

We recently stayed at The Ruskin for the tukey and tinsel mid week break. We have regularly visited the hotel and as usual we had a very good stay, food, accomodation, entertainment were all first class. The management and staff were all very helpful.

I have hosted a couple of wine tastings at The Ruskin Hotel for my company The Lancashire Wine School. They always look after me and my customers and the food for lunch is delicious.

As i work alot over the winter months my wife and i took a weekend away. hotel is just what the Doctor ordered. staff go out there way to help and always make you feel at home. food is really good and a very good selection on the menu. Roly's bar is just the place to sit back have a beer and relax. has to be my fav hotel in Blackpool.

Hotel centrally located near the tower, staff are excellent and the food plentiful, varied, and we loved it! Good bar with nightly entertainment and a very friendly atmosphere.If i had any grumbles, i didnt find my bed that comfy and you should smell the disabled toilet! Overall would return no quibbles, which is more than i can say for most of the hotels ive stayed in in Blackpool!

Seven of us booked a coach trip through Diamond Holidays. Three adults, four teenagers.
Stayed at The Ruskin and there were many positives.
Room comfy and warm. Location just behind Tower and 5 mins walk from front. Warm and friendly atmosphere, very welcoming. Food absolutely fantastic, excellent choice, big portions, can't stress this point enough. Reception very helpful, printed off details for Sandcastle, Pleasure Beach and Zoo for us. In with the price of DB&B we had three trips, all for just over £200 each. Diamond and The Ruskin Hotel really did provide superb value for money.

having been to blackpool for the last 3 years the ruskin is the best place we have stayed.the staff were helpful and friendly,the hotel was clean and tidy.
although the entertainment was a bit loud it didnt carry out until very late.the food was lovely and the menus were different each day.
our 2 year old daughter loved eating ice cream for dessert every night and was given sweets by a staff member for being so well behaved which was a very kind thing to do so thank you very much.
we would definatly stay there again.

Stayed at Ruskin again this year had another fab weekend with my freinds and the people we have met as friends over the last few years .Staff are great and very helpful thanks to Philip the drinks waiter and Marcus the bar man who were very good and made you feel so welcome , we are returning again on 28th October 2011 so come along and join us we are a friendly bunch of scottish ladies , the only thing I would say is about the entertainment we would prefer if the disco was on all night even for 1 night as there is not a lot off time for dancing when the acts are finished and Declan is a good D.J.
