“Fantastic hotel right by the sea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

Ruths Hotel is located in the old part of Skagen conveniently on the beach. It's roughly 5 kms away from the city centre of Skagen on the other side of the peninsula and thus they have the privileage of being able to enjoy the sun setting over the ocean.

The hotel is impeccable with excellent service and with a business center. It's also in a quite part of Skagen far from the touristy attractions and drunkards late at night and therefore is an option with business travellers or for meetings.

The have a restaurant with an excellent chef from France. We had well over 60 clients for dinner and we received very good ´comments from all of them. For a relax and quite setting, this is the place to be in.

Went with friends for a one night stay at this lovely hotel. Certainly a great experience. I would like to go there with my husband, as I found the place very romantic indeed. Loved the comfy beds, the atmosphere and luxury breakfast. I can only recommend this place.

a few days away with a friend - we shared a junior suite - absolutely lovely room. Not a sound outside except the sound of the sea. Decor is beautiful, scandinavian neutrals but not dull, room had lovely high ceiling and a balcony. Lovely log fire with comfy sofas downstairs and helpful staff always on hand. good sauna and steam room. Breakfast delicious. Swimming pool perhaps a little on small side, and why the exercise bikes in the pool? but beautifully warm. Its a couple of miles from Skagen itself and without a car you might feel stuck but Skagen itself is charming, the art galleries artists houses etc well worth visiting, and otherwise walks in the sand dunes and by the sea are why you are there - and the air feels so clean. Only slight niggle, the hotel has bicycles but charges quite a bit to hire them. With a hotel at this sort of price shortish bike hire could have been thrown in

My wife and I spent 2 wondeful days at Ruths Hotel in the old part of skagen. we arrived at 3 pm. The staff gave us a "tour" around the hotel which are locatet in severel buildings. We rented a Standard dobbeltroom which was placed in a building next to the main hotel building. The room was nice, clean, and cosy. After check in we went to the beach, which is right next to the hotel. Because it was my birthday we had dinner at the hotels gourmet restaurant. Book in advance, it was completely full on an ordinary tuesday evening.
It was a fantastic dinner, best lobstertail i ever had, and a fantasic wine meny. After a good nigts sleep, we had a lovely breakfast, we rented bikes at the hotel and went into Skagen city, we went to see "den tilsandede kirke", Skagen "downtown" and up to "grenen". We had lunch at "Skagen bryghus" good beer and burgers. In the evening we had dinner, at the hotels Brasserie, which was fine. After dinner we went to the beach. A bottle of champagne and a nice sunset, completet our stay.
minor details:
no aircondition, but you can open the windows.
no minibar, but you have acces to a "lounge" with cold beer, soda, vine. ect.

Stayed in room 35 a Junior suite with jacuzzi for 2 night during July 2011 with my husband and 5 year old son

Arriving at the hotel you are meet by a very kind receptionist who quickly check you in, show you around the hotel and follow you to your room.

The room is nicely decorated but a little boring compared to international 5 start hotel level. But it works nicely. The beds are REALLY good which is VERY importent for me
There is no need to book a room with a jacuzzi as it is the small one.
The is an outdoor terrace for this kind of rooms which is perfect when you a child with you. The is no view at al from this room!

The spa in-door pool is open from 16-18 for children. Our son loved it and it will be one of the reasons for returning. It is nice that it is only open in this period.. because then you do not have to discuss when to return to the hotel with your cildren ;o)

Breakfast is nice and have everything you want.. The egs are VERY soft as ask for one wich is more cocked.

You can have dinner at the brasseri (See other review) or the gourme restaurant. Returning in the evening you can sit by the fire and enjoy a dring or take a late dessert.

The location of the hotel is in the old part of Skagen which I can only recommend as this area is more quiet... the out door space for the Brasserie is VERY nice during the evening(Remember to book space!)

Remember to go to the dune during the sunset with a small bottle of champaign.. so charming sitting there enjoying the sun set

Room Tip: If you like an out door space with no view then book a Junior Suite with a Jacuzzi

Stayed 2 nights to enjoy the sea, peace and true Skagen atmosphere. Well decorated rooms kept in a Maritime style. The place is known for its Jet-Set clients - rich and famous. Breakfast is ok - regular. Good for couples who want peace and time - out. Expensive and good!

Stayed for three nights together with my wife.
The hotel is very nice and the restaurant and the service is excellent (which is also to bee expected with the price!).

However, we stayed from Friday to Monday, and both Friday and Saturday night we could not sleep due to laud music from the Brasserie (Turned volume down at 01.00) and people partying just outside the room in the court yard (until 01.30). Normally I don't mind party and music if you stay in a city or at place where you expect noise in the weekend, but when Ruths markets itself as a quit and tranquil place, I would also expect the music and partying to end at least at midnight...
