When researching this hotel, I noticed a lot of the reviewers comment on the small room size. Indeed I've stayed in larger hotel rooms before, but certainly not for this price. And besides, the room was thoughtfully laid out, so it did not actually feel small. It did however feel clean, quiet, contemporary and comfortable. The staff were helpful, and kindly upgraded me to a sea-facing room at no additional charge. I thought that because of the low price I was "rolling the dice" so to speak, but of the 5 hotels I stayed at on this UK trip, (all much more expensive) the Strand is the one I will remember most fondly.
