Stayed 2012 May Bank holiday weekend with four other friends.
Rubens is situated in a great location and the hotel atmosphere is warm and welcoming. The hosts, Lara and Ash are very gracious and obviously take a lot of pride in their fantastic little hotel. The rooms are spotless and have everything you need. The bar is well stocked and very reasonably priced. The breakfast in the morning was the best non greasy Full English I have had in a long time with generous portions. If you are looking for class at value for money then Rubens is the place to stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 303 and it was perfect.

Stayed for the weekend on a freinds 40th birthday bash. The room was spotless, beds comfortable, bathroom a bit small but had everythingwe needed and was spotless. Food great, just what we needed after a night on the town and to get us going again for day. Hospitality great and good banter. Great service, they even sussed out parking costs before I booked.

All in all a great experience from start to finish.

Best we've stayed in at Blackpool. We'll be back!

Stayed at Rubens April 2012, lovely clean room, very comfy bed, excellent full english breakfast (perfect hangover cure), owners were very friendly and helpful, excellent value for money and the best place I have stayed in Blackpool, close to Tower (six minute walk) and other North Shore attractions. low cost parking available just one minute walk away. Would recommend staying here to anyone. See you next year girls!!! Tiffin and Kip.
