“service with a smile :-)”
Reviewed 2 October 2012

we stayed at this b and b in early aug for 1 night, it was a surprise for my fella and after phoning around nearky 50 b and bs i finally found the strathdon, it seemed blackpool was fully booked for this weekend but when i spoke to the lady she said she had one room left, she advised me that the room had a slightly smaller double bed as usual but i booked the room. when we arrived we were greeted by this lovely lady witha huge smile and shown to our room, i have to say the level of clenliness in the room was spotless! although the room was small it was lovely, matching deco and a little swan on our bed made from towels, the breakfast was the nicest full english ever, you had a few choices but i chose the full english, which was brought out by the ladys husband whom also had a huge smile, you can tell this couple love there buisness and i would dwefinatly recommend this place to friends and family.

My and my partner stayed at the Strathdon at the end of August and had a brilliant stay! Ian was a fantastic host, very welcoming and answered any questions we had. The room was spotlessly clean and had everything you could need, breakfast in the morning was lovely with a great choice and a vegetarian option was prepared for me with no problems at all. I was also pleasantly surprised to find that the bar downstairs is kept open late, so you could get a drink and some nibbles before bed if you so wish, and very reasonably priced too. The atmosphere downstairs was also very friendly and we felt very much at home. This hotel is a bargain you get fantastic service for what you pay (anywhere down south Id expect to pay £100 per night for the same thing), Ian and his wife go above and beyond the call of duty and it does not go unnoticed. We wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Blackpool!

My partner and I recently stayed here.
Everything about this hotel is wonderfull, from the lovely, clean bedrooms, complete with tea/coffee plus biscuits to complementary toiletries. Clean towel are available every day if required.
The food is also great, with an ample portion and plenty of choice, including bar meals in the evening if requested [a nice idea if the weather not good]
Ian and Veronica are nice, helpful people, who make every guest feel special.

We have just come back from a two night break in Blackpool staying at the Strathdon. This really is a lovely hotel. Veronica and Ian the owners of the Strathdon are so warm and welcoming and instantly make you feel at home. The hotel is so clean and everything is the best quality. Breakfast was 1st class. We booked four rooms and each of us who stayed said the beds were so comfortable. I would strongly recommend any couples or families to stay at this hotel you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: We had a selection of rooms, four different ones, two doubles, one twin and one family all were exce...

we had a 3 night stay in the Strathdon. It is a lovely, bright, clean and very homely wee hotel. The owners are hard working and very friendly making your stay there the best they can. The food was excellent we had breakfast was couldn't have been better with a full breakfast menu. We also had 2 bar meals which were also very good, good honest home cooked food. The hotel has a lovely wee bar/lounge which we used when weather was bad and relaxed. Ian and Veronica, the owners were great. The room was clean warm and cosy with all your needs.

Stayed here for 2 nights with my partner, mum and dad. We were allocated a double ensuite room. Very clean and does what it says on the tin, with clean towels daily. Complimentary toiletries provided along with tea/coffee and use of a hair dryer and iron/iron board.

Breakfast served between 8.30-9am with a great choice of full english, toast, cereal, fruit etc with plenty of fruit juices and the food was very nice. The couple that run the hotel are really nice and welcoming. We booked this B&B due its great reviews on Tripadvisor and the fact that it does not accept any stag/hens makes it even more appealing. Lovely quiet street and very central. Could not get parked on the street so we parked in the football stadium and its about a 5 minute walk (£12 for 48 hours).

We would definitely come back to The Strathdon.
