It is situated on the promenade which is currently being redeveloped - although 50 feet from the beach you cannot get there through the building site. Seems a bit anonymous alongside many similar looking places and has nothing from the outside to make it stand out.

Room was comfortable though a bit poky and not well designed. Room service was almost non-existent - the soup was cold and the toastie hardly toasted. Breakfast was fine and freshly cooked.

The main problem with the hotel is that t is in Blackpool, which is no place to be on a windy March Monday, unless you have to be there.

Had a great stay at the Strand. The staff (especially the receptionist) were all very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and tidy and decorated in a modern style. We had a lovely big room with a sea view. The shower head needed a bit of work but everything else was great. The location was good - about 10-15 minutes north of the tower. The view was slightly spoiled by the major renovations going on to the road and tram lines along the front but I understand they will be finished by the summer.

I would definitely stay here again.

This Hotel shows the best of Blackpool hospitality, it has a Friendly and Welcoming environment and so relaxing! The staff are attentive to your requirements and the food and service in the restaurant is impeccable. Relaxing in the Bar after a meal in the restaurant is a big bonus! My Fiancée and I felt so at home and refreshed and it was a welcome break from our busy lifestyles. The rooms throughout the Hotel are spotlessly clean, Guest Rooms, Bar, Restaurant and Reception. Would recommend to any one, beit a Family/Couple or a group of friends without a doubt.

The bedroom was lovely unfortunately the shower did not work and there was a mix up getting it repaired but we were immediately upgraded to a sea view room once they could not rectify the problem. Very clean comfprtable environement, nice friendly staff, great location, great breakfast and very doggy friendly , would stay again.
