“Fantastic, Friendly Dog Welcoming Hotel”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

Had a great over night stay here, Was booked very last min over the phone at 9.15pm the day before arrival. We arrive early and was told our room was ready so early checkin was fine. We had our small dog with us for the stay and he was welcomed with open arms, even receiving a doggy welcome pack to made his stay enjoyable. The rooms very very clean and modern. I would recommend anybody wanting a break or holiday with a dog to seriously consider staying here. We will all b back very soon. Thanks again for a great stay its been amazing couple of days away.

Hi,
Thank you for your review we love having our little furry friends coming to visit and are so glad you enjoyed your stay. As dog owners too we appreciate what fun it is to take them on holiday with you and there is nowhere better than the seaside.

Stopped here for 2 nights with the mrs. The staff were brilliant so polite and helpful made you feel really welcome. The rooms were nice and clean and the breakfast was spot on. It's situated about 5/10 mins walk from the tower, just far enough away from the stag n hen do mayhem to make it relaxing but not to far if u want to go and find the nightlife. Entertainment is held in its sister hotel which is literally 2 mins away. The only problem We had was we didn't stay long enough...

I booked this hotel on kgb when it was brownes so glad it had shut down and was now known as the strand lodge. What a superb place, had the executive suite with king size bed and jaccuzi lovely and bright with a view of the sea. The staff here are amazing nothing was too much trouble and they were always pleasant and helpfull. The food was always beautifully presented hot and home made. I would reccomend staying here. We would certainly come back a really enjoyable mini break

Thank you for your review and I am pleased you are glad we took over what was 'Browns International'. We certainly think there has been a massive improvement so it is great you do too.
We have lots of special mini break deals coming up for the year ahead and it would be great to see you again.

We have just come back from a 4 night stay at the Strand Lodge. Our room was a premier on suite Jacuzzi room, No 7. We had a large room with a bay window with a side view onto the Irish sea. The room was clean with a very large and comfortable bed. The staff were very helpful especially Colin and the young girl serving breakfast. The hotel although quite full was extremely quiet. The hotel had nice reception and bar rooms. Entertainment was held on the sister hotel just located round the corner on the seafront. The breakfast was nice and a full English offering available. Very pleasant hotel would stay here again and only a 5 to 10 minute walk to bars and town centre.

My partner and I av just returned from a weekend trip to blackpool fri4 to sun6 april and didn't think we could possibly top the strand hotel bt after staying at the sister hotel the strand lodge, I must say its deffinately on par and being set just around the corner from the the strand hotel, it is within easy walking distance between the two should u wish to spend time at both venues. Karl and staff are very welcoming, friendly, accomodating and he is also a excellent chef too, with breakfast at the lodge and a great value 3 course main meal at the the hotel. Really lukin forward to going back later this year.

Room Tip: we stayed in a luvly room on the top floor bt for a little extra you can stay in an executive room w...

Its is great that you have stayed at both our venues and are just as happy to stay at the Lodge. This is the very reason we purchased another hotel as the Strand Hotel was becoming so busy it was awful when we couldn't accommodate regular guests now you have 2 to choose from. Karl and the team are very friendly and Chris is a great chef they are thrilled with your comments.

We were booked in on a KGB weekend at a hotel called Brownes International. When we got to
Blackpool, we found that the previous owner had done a bunk. Chris at the Strand Lodge was really helpful. He was really helpful offered us a room , so that we did not have to travel three hours home again.
The breakfast was excellent, we went to the Strand for dinner. What a lovely stay. Staff could not do enough for us. The room was lovely, and the bed was really comfy.
We will definatley be going back.

Room Tip: We had room seven, which had a jaccuzzi bath. the room was really quiet.

Thank you for your review we are still getting the occasional KGB or other voucher deal guests arriving at the Lodge due to the previous owners but thankfully not as many now and all guests that have stayed have received refunds from the voucher company. We are pleased you visited our hotel (The Strand Hotel) just around the corner for your evening dinner, many guests are loving having the flexibility of staying bed and breakfast and knowing if they want dinner there is a fab restaurant at our hotel. Many Thanks.

We were here for a friends birthday & didn't want to pay a fortune for a hotel. We weren't expecting much for our money, but we were pleasantly surprised. It was clean, the staff were friendly & helpful. Highly recommend this hotel.
