This was our 3rd visit to the Strand! The refurbishment of the down stairs area and the new restaurant was excellent! As always the staff were great and so helpful, the food looked amazing and tasted it too. Looking forward to a return trip!

Thanks everyone xx

I've stayed in many hotels in Blackpool over the years but this has to be the best.

Receptionist was very friendly and informative.

All of the hotel is very modern looking, lots of wood and flatscreen tv's. There's a nice restuarant area and a separate bar area, and the menu for the bar-snack type food looked very good value.

The room, as commented before, IS quite small but had everything we needed in it, including a great shower and a good tv with plenty of channels. We stayed at the rear of the hotel and experienced no noise either internally or externally at all. Nice comfy bed.

One of the things that particularly stood out was the Breakfast - as breakfast buffets go - this was fantastic, with a good range, all nice and hot and clearly not "value range" quality as in some places. (The buffet breakfast round the corner at the Hilton costs around 20 quid and is nowhere near as good. )All served in a very nice room, with a great sea-view, by very friendly and efficient waitresses.

personally, I won't bother looking for another hotel the next time we're in Blackpool.

One or two small issues about general maintenance in the rooms, which were reported and fixed by (Karl..great guy). The rooms are a little small but adequate.. with tea and Coffee available.
The two best things about this hotel are ...
(1) The Staff (Jane and Aaron) were not in attendance for our W/End but 5/5 for all the rest of the team, .... nothing was a bother to them.

(2) The food is fantastic.. my Daughter and Grandson were expecting B&B fare but what we got was Table De Hote dining...super portions and and well presented.

May I add that allowing children to eat off the main menu is fantastic, as well as the kids menu, our grandson is a good eater loved having the "adult" food.

Entertainment was OK although a bit dated (songs etc) ..which suited us fine LOL!

J & A keep an eye on the maintenance in the rooms!! ....but we had a great time.....many thanks.

See you soon.

We had a very pleasent stay here for 2 nights 6/7 August when the Airshow on the beach and the punk/new wave music festival was on and had a fantastic time,as soon as we entered the front revolving doors we were met with a welcoming smile,very clean and tidy
with a modern feel all round ,lifts to all floors and a open plan bar/lounge area looks ideal for wheelchairs ect,above the reception area on the first floor is the breakfast/dinning area which again is open plan and very clean and tidy,a lovely view of the sea as you have your breakfast.Rooms were very clean and well laid out with a lot of personal touches.There is a very pleasent computer space available just along from the breakfast area .Staff were realy nice and friendly .On a personal note i would like to thank Arron,Jane and All the Team at The Strand Hotel for the Birthday Card left for my wife.If you a looking fot a needle in a haystack among the countless palces to stay in Blackpool,this is it.
The Strand is just before you come to the Hilton Hotel traveling north along the promanade and more than beats your ecpectations of what you would expect for a Hotel of this size.

Room Tip: We booked a room on the 3rd floor facing away from the sea,very peaceful,not a sound all weekend.

We stayed here for one night it was a really really nice room only one problem was that the double glazing on one window was not closed property I think the window needs fitting so the room was cold and you could hear the wind all night.

Spent 4 nights at the hotel in the first week of June for business + pleasure trip. Staff were very helpful in receiving parcels prior to my arrival. I also shortened my stay dates prior to arrival yet they honoured the original price deal which I appreciated that commitment very much.Staff made sure I had a comfortable quiet spot to work when i had to stay inside for several hours. The business centre (sans computer!) is a desk & had to tap into next door's wi-fi . I assume not many people would conduct business so suggest you call to discuss your needs if you need to work during your stay. Overall the personal support made it a very pleasant stay and ensures I will return again.
