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... More

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... More

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...

Just back from a Danish holiday in Copenhagen and Skagen. At Ruths we had a high quality stylish suite, in a good location. Skagen is a unique and lovely place. But beware peak holiday season (mid July). The hotel bar and restaurant is too crowded and there is no priority system for hotel guests. Also, as with all things in... More

In Old Skagen we have stayed many, many times and love the atmosphere here and it's only a short cardrive to Skagen or you can rent a bicycle. A short walk to the sanddunes and the same to the sea where you can see the sun setting. The hotel is old but they renovated the place not many years ago.... More

We used to come to Ruths hotel every year. This summer we found the quality of service and of the rooms to have detoriated. While we earlier years felt very welcome, we now found that the quality of the rooms, the common areas and the breakfast buffet was reduced.

It is just so relaxing to stay at Ruth’s hotel in Skagen. The service is simply unique and the staff extremely friendly. You will meet a world class receptionist when checking in and be given a tour of the hotel. The breakfast is great.

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
