4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2010

My partner and I just spent a couple of days at Ruth's Hotel with the sole purpose of relaxing, eating, and getting some fresh air. The latter is no problem at gl. Skagen as such, and at this time of year it's not especially crowded with tourists (such as ourselves) if you prefer a quieter milieu than the place offers in the summer's high season. The Hotel itself was nice as you would expect from a 5 star standard. Room very clean, a bit small, but with an ok nice view of the sea (this was a standard room, so we didn't expect high class luxury neither in terms of spaciousness nor a perfect vista). A nice, small balcony as well. We did miss a minibar at the room, but other things compensated for that: For one thing the wellness-facilities situated in the hotel although we only used the large therapeutic pool and sauna which was included in the price. Really nice and relaxing and with a no kids-policy (except youths above 16 are allowed in company with adults). This means you can relax in a noise-free environment, which was what we came for. Secondly, we decided to eat all our meals at the in situ brasserie, managed by French chef Michel Michaud after the first evening course there. Maybe we were lucky, but we really cant support the negative judgements of the small (about 50 seats) down-to-earth brasserie with an intense atmosphere. Both evenings we had the menu of the day (+ extras, and lunch one day as well) and they were brilliant. No doubt up there with what we've had elsewhere in France (rural or Paris) at other occasions. Mind, this is not gourmet haute cuisine, but very well made classic brasserie dishes. The service was ok (one of the waitresses was not exactly fantastic) and by coincidence we had a small chat with the chef himself, who acted extremely sympathetic. The menus included lamb, poussins, mussels, cheese-selections, and créme brulée. Classic but absolutely tasty. Excellent bread, and small but good wine selection. The gourmet restaurant, also in situ, may be overpriced as someone else here stated - we didn't check it - but the brasserie is certainly not, considering the quality. Definitely recommended. And we didn't even mention the delicious (but unpretentious) breakfast buffet, the beautiful nature and the nearby town of Skagen (Ruth's Hotel is at the outskirts, about 4 km from Skagen), which has plenty to offer.

We stayed in the Strandhotellet which is part of Ruths hotel and dined at the hotel's gourmet restaurant.
Although recently rewamped, very clean and in line with the summer theme of Skagen, the room and hotel does not justify 2500 kr price tag. It is marketed as a cosy unpretentious summer hotel - but priced as a 5 star hotel.
The 6 course gourmet dinner was overpriced and far from "among the best restaurants in the country" as advertised by the hotel. And beware when they ask you if you want still or sparkling mineral water, that is 80 kr. per person - for mineral water ad libitum! Outrageous by any standard and ridiculous in a restaurant of this standard.
