Stayed one night at skagen. Weather wasn't the best at the time of our visit. It was rainy and windy. Fortunately the hotel was lovely with a good restaurant and a lovely fireplace in the lobby area. Service was also great. Very happy to see a lift to avoid carrying luggages upstairs to our rooms. Enjoyed our stay and had...

This wellness hotel is really nice with beautiful surroundings and superb service. We stayed in the main house where rooms with jacuzzi are large and nice. We only have one recomendation which is to put some "hang-out" chairs in the lounge.

We had the pleasure of staying at the main building of Ruths hotel. It was truly a nice hotel with very friendly staff. The rooms where nice although a bit small but with very high quality of beddings and interior. The only thing I was missing was a water boiler to brew your own coffee in the room. But again...

Pretentiousness appears to have spread to the hotel from its ditto pretentious guests. Before the hotel managed to keep a somewhat ironic and healthy distance to the bunch of old men (of which some are actually only in their forties!) with their heads up their own popos, but nowadays the staff are actually making you believe that they are way...

Cosy hotel in Gl. Skagen. We had a nice bright room with access to a couple of chairs outside and in addition a view across the local cemetary to the beach and sea. The spa is nice, but not up to modern standards. We had a great stay at the hotel, great breakfast and simple food at dinner time in...

The hotel is a complex of several buildings in old Skagen, a small village of mostly weekend houses. We stayed in room 5, a junior suite on the top (second) floor in the building closest to the strand. This is a really pleasant junior suite with two rooms plus good bathroom, attractive, well furnished, plenty of reading lights, comfortable bed...

Ruths hotel is located in Old Skagen just a few steps from the ocean and in a very scenic area of the Danish West coast. We visited the hotel the first week-end of September and had a very good reception service and a nice clean room in the "Strandhuset" (a bit small though). In the evening we had pre-ordered a...

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
