“Lovely hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2011

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...

My partner and I just spent a couple of days at Ruth's Hotel with the sole purpose of relaxing, eating, and getting some fresh air. The latter is no problem at gl. Skagen as such, and at this time of year it's not especially crowded with tourists (such as ourselves) if you prefer a quieter milieu than the place offers in the summer's high season. The Hotel itself was nice as you would expect from a 5 star standard. Room very clean, a bit small, but with an ok nice view of the sea (this was a standard room, so we didn't expect high class luxury neither in terms of spaciousness nor a perfect vista). A nice, small balcony as well. We did miss a minibar at the room, but other things compensated for that: For one thing the wellness-facilities situated in the hotel although we only used the large therapeutic pool and sauna which was included in the price. Really nice and relaxing and with a no kids-policy (except youths above 16 are allowed in company with adults). This means you can relax in a noise-free environment, which was what we came for. Secondly, we decided to eat all our meals at the in situ brasserie, managed by French chef Michel Michaud after the first evening course there. Maybe we were lucky, but we really cant support the negative judgements of the small (about 50 seats) down-to-earth brasserie with an intense atmosphere. Both evenings we had the menu of the day (+ extras, and lunch one day as well) and they were brilliant. No doubt up there with what we've had elsewhere in France (rural or Paris) at other occasions. Mind, this is not gourmet haute cuisine, but very well made classic brasserie dishes. The service was ok (one of the waitresses was not exactly fantastic) and by coincidence we had a small chat with the chef himself, who acted extremely sympathetic. The menus included lamb, poussins, mussels, cheese-selections, and créme brulée. Classic but absolutely tasty. Excellent bread, and small but good wine selection. The gourmet restaurant, also in situ, may be overpriced as someone else here stated - we didn't check it - but the brasserie is certainly not, considering the quality. Definitely recommended. And we didn't even mention the delicious (but unpretentious) breakfast buffet, the beautiful nature and the nearby town of Skagen (Ruth's Hotel is at the outskirts, about 4 km from Skagen), which has plenty to offer.

We stayed in the Strandhotellet which is part of Ruths hotel and dined at the hotel's gourmet restaurant.
Although recently rewamped, very clean and in line with the summer theme of Skagen, the room and hotel does not justify 2500 kr price tag. It is marketed as a cosy unpretentious summer hotel - but priced as a 5 star hotel.
The 6 course gourmet dinner was overpriced and far from "among the best restaurants in the country" as advertised by the hotel. And beware when they ask you if you want still or sparkling mineral water, that is 80 kr. per person - for mineral water ad libitum! Outrageous by any standard and ridiculous in a restaurant of this standard.

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
