Spend 2 nights at Ruths hotel. Lovely room, great bedding and atmosphere. Staff down to earth and polite. The hotels has all the right things for a 5-star hotel. Unfortunately the breakfast restaurant and the Brasserie restaurant is understaffed - they simply cannot live up to the standard the are trying to set due to lack of staff to keep... More

I don't know how many times I've stayed here, but I have always loved it. The rooms are lovely in the spare but tasteful Scandinavian way. The staff is incredibly helpful and friendly.

Hotel is modern, clean, with adjoining bar and restaurant area, which was incredibly popular (which lead to a VERY long wait). Small indoor pool was nice, saunas downstairs. Room with views and balconies overlooking a few rooftops and the dunes (room 24). Quiet little village with a few restaurant options. The best part was walking 5min to the beach for... More

I enjoyed staying at this hotel! The rooms are really cozy and neat. The staff were very friendly and helpful whenever me or my colleagues had a question. We had both lunch and dinner at the hotel restaurant, and the food was really good. The place itself is very charming - I enjoyed the beutiful beach and peaceful atmosphere.

Ruths Hotel is a so-called beach hotel which entails a special ambience partly to do with the architecture and decor and partly with the very relaxed atmosphere. This is combined with a very professional and high-class service, restaurant, rooms, lounges etc.

Picturesque hotel with a very friendly staff and good customer service. Clean room with small spa top that i would NOT recommend paying the extra for. The Wellness area was really nice with heated indoor pool and spa facility. The gym was the smallest i have ever seen and should just have been eliminated or moved to a proper space.... More

Three nights in April and an amazing start to a week long adventure in Denmark and Sweden. Warm, friendly, professional and respectful staff. Our junior suite spacious and light. Definitely worth the 5 hour drive from Copenhagen - fantastic light, big skies and the curve of the earth noticeable from the beach.

Given a choice between a room in the main building or another building a block away, we selected the latter for the general light airy feel, with windows in both directions, and the outlook from the bedroom to the sea (photo). It had been freshly painted in beachhouse colours and was over two levels. The downsides were walking along the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ruths Hotel is a historic seaside hotel located in the heart of a idyllic village called Gl. Skagen that is surrounded by dunes with lyme grass and rose hip bushes and also the beach with the legendary sunset plaza on the Top of Denmark. The hotel itself consists today of four buildings with rooms and apartments designed with Danish furnitures and typical Scandinavian beach side hotel style, an underground parking garage, conference facilities and romantic banquet facilities - all within 200 meters. In the main building of Ruths Hotel is besides the reception also a wellness and spa area with a heated therapy pool, exercise machines, sauna, steam room, massage shower, and the option to book massages, beauty and fitness treatments. The culinary experince in a cozy setting can be enjoyed either in Ruths Brasserie or Ruths Gourmet with our gastronomic head chef Dennis Juhl. Between the two restaurants is our lounge, where a cup of coffee with some exclusive pampering of the sweet tooth can be enjoyed by the crackling fire from the fireplace. Despite the fact that we are a five-star hotel and many describes Ruths Hotel as a luxury hotel, we actually don't strive to give a luxury experience. We want to give our guests a five-star experience of exclusive life enjoyment, and it is with this exclusive pampering that you will experience how the heart rate drops by 10 beats, the body is forced to relax and you will achieve a sensation of presence and time for each other. We can not help it - It's in our nature ... more   less
