Just got back from a fantastic weekend in Blackpool. We stayed at the strathdon which is located on the south pier, really central to the pleasure beach, shops and bars. What can I say... The rooms are absolutely spotless clean, with lovely decor, fluffy towels and little touches that make the difference hence the 5 star rating. I even asked where they got their pillows and bedding from as I didn't want to leave my comfortable bed! The breakfast is amazing with plenty of choice including fresh fruit, Greek yoghurt, cereals, fruit juices, cooked breakfast I am quite picky over food especially breakfast but this did not disappoint, oh and there was plenty of fresh toast with real butter and mini jars of jam. The main reason though I would return to the Strathdon is because of the wonderful hospitality of Veronica and Ian the owners. Nothing is too much trouble and they really do give you a warm welcome. Thank you for a great weekend we are already planning our next trip in 2015!

Great hotel. Very welcoming. Very friendly people. Rooms are clean and comfortable, lots of attention to detail. Excellent breakfast, veggie option available. Highly recommended. We went for valentines, towels were folded into kissing swans, very nice and unusual touch. Been to lots of hotels in blackpool. This one is by far the best

Had a smashing weekend in Blackpool last weekend (1.11.13) although the weather was a letdown, our stay at the Strathdon Hotel more than made up for it! Ian and Veronica are most definitely the hosts with the most. We were made very welcome on arrival with direction to a secure car park on the next street as there weren't any spaces on St. Chads Road - it was school holidays so no wonder - Blackpool was buzzing.
The Strathdon is in a brilliant spot just off the front and half way between the pleasure beach and the tower. Fab place for families and couples.
The room was lovely and clean and comfortable, super shower and tea and coffee making facilities. The breakfasts were lovely and there was a good choice at that.
The hosts even put a Halloween party on for the residents which we managed to catch the very end of as we went to viva Blackpool that evening.
Super place and comfy thank you Ian and Veronica. We'll be back!!

Ideally located for the Pleasure Beach, Tower etc all within a short walk or tram ride away. Lovely well maintained street and hotel. We received a a very warm welcome and there was a great atmosphere that was perfect for families. The rooms were spotless with fresh clean crisp comfy feel all round that made for a great nights sleep. The breakfast was fantastic and can wholeheartedly recommend the sausages and salmon & scrambled eggs. Ian and Veron were very friendly and helpful and obviously have had a lot of experience to create those extra special touches that make all the difference to your stay. Well done!

Room Tip: Book well in advance as this is a very popular hotel.

Best ever breakfast in Blackpool Hotel, good quality food, excellent service, good trendy bar and dining room, good for families felt very welcoming without being in your face. Rooms very very clean most comfiest bed and lovely linen and duvets pillows we have ever had in a hotel anywhere. Beautiful swan made out of towels on our bed after a very busy day exploring biscuits and plenty of coffee milk etc in the room. Room more spacious than in any other hotel we had stayed in locally. Lovely toiletries in the room. Very friendly helpful hosts will definitely recommend to our friends and family.

Stayed here with partner and child plus another couple with child. Location spot on, rooms nice and clean, us had room 4 3 which was easy big enough, bar area nice and cozy, stayed up whilst we had a drink late on which we appreciated. Beds nice n comfortable had good sleep, shower and down for breakfast which was lovely, (on a plate, not buffet) had good choice of hot food and cereal/fresh fruit. Will try book back here next time if not full.
