Ruths Hotel Sep 18, 2014
This historic hotel was open in 1904 by it is founders, Emma and Hans Christian Ruth and very famous in Denmark for it is beach front location, five km from Skagen town centre. Currently the hotel owned by Jørgen Philip-Sørensen.
The hotel also famous for it is French restaurant which currently run by Throsten Schmidt who were known for his Aarhus restaurants Malling & Schmidt, Nordisk Spisehus and Villa Supreme.
The hotel offers free spa access for the hotel guests, free parking and free wifi in the entire building complex. However massage service is additional charge on top of the room price.
When we arrived late in the afternoon, the hotel reception was busy with other guests and after we get the key to our room, the reception showed us the entire building which consist of many different buildings nearby (and also our room which located at different building from the main reception area) and tell us the story of the hotel.
We stay at the building which called Strand hotel which also part of Ruth hotel. The hotel was built in 1910 made from timber wood and painted white colour. The Strand hotel has it is own restaurant specially cater for special occasion – however the restaurant was close when we were there. Whereas the two restaurants in the main building of Ruth hotel was open for the hotel guests.
Our room located at the first floor of the building. The bedroom itself quite small with one double bed and a couple of night stand beside the bed and window facing the street below. The living room inside the room was okay, it was able to accommodate a couple of chairs, small table, dresser, and free tea or coffee and a couple of mineral bottle inside the room. But we did not use the living room much since we were out most of the day. The bathroom was modern in design and everything work well, with plenty of towels as well, and it has window with sea view.
At night time, when we retired to bed, we hear noise up on the roof and we were wondering if someone live upstairs since we could not see any stairway to go up to the roof. In the morning we found out from the cleaner that the room opposite ours has a living room on the same ground level with our room but bedroom above our room – which make a lot of noise when people walk at night time.
We had our dinner at the gourmet restaurant in the Ruth hotel main building but we did not use the hotel facility or swimming pool as we have limited time only. The dinner was good and service was excellent.
The next morning buffet breakfast was delicious and plenty of food.
The staff was exceptional friendly and informative. Everything in this place is very good. However for the price of DKK 3,531 (€475) per night for two people with 3 courses dinner meal and breakfast is quite pricey, especially without air condition – since it was quite hot inside the room when we arrived.
