From a small guest-house in a remote landscape among the sand dunes, to a historic seaside hotel and now a 5-star hotel with Gourmet restaurant and Wellness area.

More than 100 years ago, Emma and Hans Chr. Ruth started their first year as owners of the seaside guest-house “Vesterhus”.

Hans Chr. Ruth was the warden at the life saving station in Gl. Skagen and Emma was employed at Jeckel’s seaside hotel. After disagreements with Mrs. Jeckel in connection with Emma’s mother’s illness and death in Copenhagen, the relationship came to an abrupt end. The Ruth family therefore took the first step in 1904 and opened “Badepensionatet Vesterhus” for summer guests. Later it came to be called Ruths Hotel.

Along with the environment and life in and around the seaside hotels in Gl. Skagen, there is a wide range of fun, exciting and amazing stories and anecdotes from the past, but also from the present, where the hotels are also visited by the locals, so-called “Skawboere”. And if you sit in the café at Ruths Strandhotel, or at the Brasserie in Ruths Hotel, there is every chance that you will hear and experience them for yourself.
