“" A little slice of Heaven in Blackpool, Ian and Veronica were Angels !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2011

Hi my mum, my husband and myself went to Blackpool on a mini break for my Birthday on 18th October 2011, we looked on the net for somewhere near the Tower and found The Strathdon Hotel, thank goodness we did too !
We had a four and a half hour drive and were tired when we arrived, as soon as Ian opened the door to us we knew we were going to like it, he was warm and welcoming and we instantly felt at ease and at home, we were given a lovely cup of coffe and biscuits upon arrival with a freindly chat.

We arrived a bit early so Ian said we could leave our luggage in the dining room while we went out for lunch, when we came back we were shown to our rooms and Ian helped take the luggage up. The room my mother had on her own was lovely, she had a double bed to herself, there were tea making facilities, T.V. and a lovely bathroom with complimentry toiletries, our room was equally as well furnished with lovely bright colours, i have to say the bed was really comfy too !!
We all agreed that the hotel was spotless, you could have eaten your dinner off the floor, it knocks spots off some of the top hotels we have stayed abroad.

In the evening we had a drink in the bar and met Veronica, she was equally is nice as Ian is and she is an excellent cook as we found out on our last nite, we wish we had of eaten there for all three nites we stayed. Veronica as with Ian treated us like old friends and we had a great time and had a good laugh with them and the other guests.
The breakfasts were just brilliant, we had a great choice and Ian was very attentive, you certainly would not go hungry in the Strathdon.
It was my Birthday on our second day and i got taken out to an Italian restaurant near the Tower, it was a really great meal and nite, we went back to the hotel as my mum bought a surprise cake for me, Veronica came out the kitchen with it and her, Ian and the other guests sang to me, it was the " Icing on the cake " ........pardon the pun ha ha.....

I would definately recommend this hotel for lots of reasons but none more than the very warm welcome and freindleness that was recieved by myself and my family....they truly do deserve their 4 stars ****
Thankyou Ian and Veronica for making myself and my family very happy and making the long trip from Norfolk very worth while, i had a fab birthday and we will come back soon........

What a find. greeted on arrival with tea and biscuits after a long drive was fantastic and our hosts Veronica and Ian could not have been more helpful. The evening meals were wonderful and breakfasts really set us up for the day. The little touches in rooms really showed how they care for guests -Quilted toilet paper and fluffy towels !! 1st trip to BPool and would not stay anywhere else. Thanks V & I and really wish you succsess..

Room Tip: room 8 overlooking street, but not noisy -double glazing.

This Hotel was a rare find these Days. Unbelievable Service from the minute you walked through the door, Nothing is to much trouble for the Lovely hosts. And the Food is superb You would be silly to eat out and miss such wonderful food. The rooms are spotless and it has a lovely bar to return to after a day out in Blackpool what more could you ask for
We will never return to Blackpool and stay anywhere else if we can Help it, Thank You Ian And Veronica for making our Holiday special

We stayed at the Strathdon on the 13-10-11 for just one night, i phoned earlier that day and Veronica was very helpful stating they had a cot for our little boy.
On arrival we were presented with tea/coffee and biscuits and we sat in the bar to relax before heading to our room to unpack.
The room was very spacious , very clean and the bed was really comfy ,it had tea/coffee facility's tv/freeview ,shower toilet and basin.
The breakfast in the morning was 1st class ,every cereal you could think ,fresh fruit and yogurt ,fruit juice and tea and coffee then the best English breakfast i have had in ages .
The only downside to our break was it was fully booked the next night or we would have stopped longer.
Ian and Veronica are lovely people who made us feel at home and we will be returning soon.

Carl , Zoe and Jake.

ust got back from a long weekend. Its an A1 hotel and BOTH Ian and Veronica made us feel welcome. we had a family room which was very clean, breakfast was excellent and nothing was ever too much trouble for Ian. Location is close to the promenade. Car parking was at a premium but thats more down to poor parking from others. As others have said its as a home from home and we will be going back
