“Bedroom A Little Bit Dated”
Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

The Bedrooms could do with a facelift, and the hotel would benefit, if it had air condition. The bedroom was very small and very hot (uncomfortable), it was a good job the Hotel provided a fan for the Bedroom. The radiator was left on in the bathroom which the manager had to turn off and there was a broken hinge on the bathroom window which wasn't fixed during our four night stay.The bedroom was very clean and the staff were very friendly & helpful, the food was very good which was freshly cooked and served piping hot. The hotel had nightly entertainment which was very good.The hotel is very close to the Hounds hill Shopping Centre, Blackpool Tower, Winter Gardens & Grand Theatre. Overall it was a pleasant stay.

Stayed July 2014, traveled as a couple

Been coming here on a yearly basis for over 10 years. Great location - everything easily accessible. Amazing food and service. Friendly, helpful staff who genuinely care. Clean rooms - great for singles,couples or families - bar and entertainment too. Never not been 100% happy.

Spent a very pleasant 5 day break at Ruskin on 16th June. I have to say the food is the best we have EVER experienced in our many trips to Blackpool. I thought perhaps the quality might have slipped a bit but no, everything was freshly cooked and all vegetables were fresh and not from a freezer shop. Portions were excellent and you never left the table feeling hungry. Food was always very hot as were the plates. Dining room staff were excellent and always knew your preferences for breakfast etc.

The rooms are small but spotlessly clean with clean towels every day and always a friendly hello from staff.

Lounge and bar area is very pleasant and bar staff cheery and always willing to chat.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone.

Only downside was there was only one night of entertainment. This may have been due to the fact that the World Cup football was on.

Visited the Ruskin on 20th/21st June for a weekend break. What a fantastic hotel. The room was clean and practical, great shower and had everything we required.
We stayed BB and Evening Meal, the food was absolutely fantastic! I don't know how they make a profit, if you like fine dining then this is the place. The staff were friendly and service was exceptionally quick. I have stayed in a lot of guest houses in Blackpool over the years but this is the best hotel by far. we will not be staying anywhere else.
Thanks again for a fantastic weekend and we will be booking another in the not too distant future.
