“Very Nice Place To Stay . .”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2012

Just back from a 2 night stay at The Strathdon and got to say what a fantastic time we had.

The equivalent of a 5 Star with friendly service. The hotel and room were immaculate and clean with a real pride taken in their work.

Breakfast just perfect with something for all tastes available.

We also booked the secure parking which was only a short walk away but piece of mind well worth the £12 for the 2 nights.

The location was perfect just a very short walk from the promenade, beach and trams with the Pleasure Beach and Tower only short walks away.

This was more like staying with a family for the weekend than in a hotel the room was clean, fresh and everything worked.

Big thank you to Ian and Veronica for a most enjoyable stay and will be back again next year.

I am writing an honest review to how i felt about our stay at the strathdon.
I had a reasonably good time there but felt the room was very small for a family of 4.
there was a double a single bed and also a single fold up type of bed i would think this room is normally used for familys of three and for the size of room i would think that is about right.
We stayed in room 9 out of 10 and i do believe they have other family rooms as there were a couple of familys there during our stay. I would give this hotel a good score in terms of how clean it was Veronica worked very hard cleaning the rooms daily. The room had everything you would need in terms of soap shampoo fresh towels and also kettle with biscuits. The main downside of this hotel for me would be the 8.30 breakfast, after a long day in blackpool the last thing you want to do on your hols is shake the kids awake and rush them to breakfast. I had to do this every day and one morning i never got them down til 9.15 sensing we had missed it i asked if they could make the kids toast and they agreed they just couldn't make a fried breakfast and that was fine as the kids only ever ate cereal and toast. Thinking back though breakfast opens at 8.30 and you miss it at 9.15 so 45 mins in total for breakfast isn't great. If the breakfast time was changed say from 8 til 10 i'd give this hotel alot higher rating. What you could choose from at breakfast i have to say was really good fresh fruit yogurt cereal and full english pretty much anything you could want from a breakfast was on offer if you made the time. Ian and veronica were good hosts and the kids took to ian aswell and this was nice for them. If i were to return i think because of the space issue in the room we had i'd go as a couple or with a friend. Not fogetting the location, great location in the middle of everywhere and anywhere you would be visiting in blackpool. All in all we had a good time even though i've given a mixed review I would reccommend this hotel highly to couples chances are you would miss the breakfast anyway ;-D

Room Tip: For a family of four don't take room nine looking at the pictures the room with 2 doubles look b...

Dear Guest
Thank you for writing an honest review. Our guests views are very important to us and we can use them to improve our service.
I only wish you had been honest with us during your stay.
When your room was booked it was the only family room that we had left and it was explained in detail to your mother that the room has a double bed and a single bed and to sleep another child we could add a hotel fold away guest bed which she happily agreed to and paid in full at the time of booking.
You state that the main downside of your stay is breakfast at 8.30am. We actually serve breakfast from 8.30am until 9.00am which was explained to you on arrival. I apologise if you misunderstood this.
We serve breakfast at this time because all the attractions open at 10.00am and the majority of our guests prefer to have finished breakfast by 9.30am to make the most of their day.
You have suggested that we serve breakfast until 10.00am, this would mean that my husband & I would not be able to start cleaning the bedrooms until 11.00am which would mean that check in would have to be 3.00pm. We know that guests want to spend as much of their holiday in Blackpool and therefore like to check in as early as they can.
Thank you also for your kind comments that you enjoyed our breakfast and that there was a good choice, we do strive to provide our guests with high quality food and a good choice of menu.

We stayed here again for my daughters birthday, excellent as usual in every way, the whole experience from booking to departing is all good, the hotel is very nice, the owners make it feel personal - as if your the only guests there, the food is excellent too, if your staying in blackpool stay here.

Stayed here from 27th-29july with my 2year old son partner in room 9. It was a lovely room and the bed was much comfier than the one we have at home (even though we have just purchased it). Tv on wall with freeview and WiFi made it a great place to wind down after a hecktic day having lots of fun in blackpool and had a great nights sleep :)) Great owners of the hotel make it the way it is as they are so nice and friendly and so hard working at the job they do in keeping the hotel running. Breakfast was amazing!!!! Fruit salads, cereals, toast and fried breakfast and the quality of all the food was great. It is situated on a really good street close to everything.
This hotel is so good, i genuinely had a better time here than i did in lanzarote in may. This was the third time i had visited Blackpool and this was the best place i have been to buy far!! I cant wait to return in the very near future Thanks ian and veronica

Room Tip: Book in advance

Really lovely hotel, very welcoming and great atmosphere!
The rooms were lovely and cosy and I think my bed was comfier than my bed at home!

Lovely owners who are always willing to help and make you feel at home! I was there for business on my own so they would always sit with me so I wasn't on my own!

All round great experience, would definitely reccomend!
