Ruth's hotel is located in Gl Skagen (old Skagen), right among the sand dunes and is in a great location to enjoy this beautifully Danish village. It's a few kms from the main town but has cycles you can hire to cycle around the area. The restaurant is lovely and the breakfast expansive. The staff were generally excellent. Had laundry...

Lovely location and a wonderful hotel and restaurant. The staff is extremely helpful. My room was made up with hypoallergenic bedding, per my request when I made the reservation. They also mailed back my husband's lost prescription sunglasses (to the U.S.) at no extra charge to us. We extended our stay by one night and they gave us a discounted...

An amazing place. The location is breathtaking with sandy, beautiful beach right 2 min walk from the hotel. Sandy dunes, stunning views. The hotel has a very scandinavic feel to it but naturally of course, without being too overstyled. Very simple cosy interior of the lounge, good braserie but the menu needs to be improved with vegan tasty options, not...

We keep coming back. This Hotel is high standard, all the small details from a nice duvet, choice of pillows, fresh local products for breakfast etc. And the service is always with a smile, and no problems. Great ambience. We prefer the rooms in the main building, going outside is nice but not all the time. And during summer don't...

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...

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...

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.

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
