Have stayed at this hotel for the last four years for the Blackpool Luxury Soul Weekender which is held at The Hilton. I prefer the choice to be able to get away from the music occasionally & The Strand is perfect for just that. 2 mins walk & is usually full of other Luxury Soul Weekender guests also taking advantage of this lovely hotel

Have just returned from a great time for new year. Can recommend that you try this hotel for great service and welcome also good food. Hotel on promenade and has sea view rooms. Family run and staff really friendly.

Room Tip: Some sea view rooms. On promenade.

The Strand is in a run down part of a run down UK sea side resort (Blackpool). So on the face of it has little going for it. It has however got wonderful staff! The waitress staff are excellent, and inspired. They work tirelessly and have a warm and friendly greeting for each and every guest.

The bar staff transform from bar tenders to table waiters and ensure no client needlessly have to queue. Any reported problems are dealt with efficiently and effectively (my wife could not figure how to turn on a radiator and reported it faulty). The Strand stands out as a cut above its neighbouring hotels and was a delight to visit.

Room Tip: Some of the very top floor rooms look out to the sea.

Hotel was good but the staff were superb. The TV went wrong and within 5 mins it had been replaced with a new one. We stayed in the Lodge part that was run by Jane, nothing was too much trouble for her. She was doing so much work that at one point I thought there must be two of her !!!

Hi there, thanks for the great review. I couldn't think of a better example of our commitment to guest satisfaction than replacing a television that was reported as being faulty only 5 minutes earlier. We are often praised on our team and on this occasion are especially proud of Jane and hope she continues to work hard. Our ethos is that when one of us does well then we all do well.
Many thanks and we hope to see you again soon.

Hotel is nice, decorated to a good standard, fond staff friendly and mostly helpful.

Food was OK, hot, well cooked but sometime dinner was a little balnd, however for the price no one could really complain.

Buffet style breakfast was fine, good choice and plenty of basics, tea coffee and fruit juice, and ample choice

My bedroom was adapted for wheelchair users, clean but the carpet had stains and the Mirror was still broken on wardrobe after second visit.

The staff are friendly and super efficient, sometimes I felt it got a bit clinical, ut everyone smiled a lot which really helps when away from home.

Only one suggestion, it would have been nice to buy snack/sandwiches at night, or maybe get a drink after the bar closed. Dinner at 5.30 meant due to own requirements needed a snack later on.

Biggest problem for me is getting a room, they are a busy hotel and hotel seem to have one room with disabled facilities.

Will definitely stay again, this is the standard other Hotels should be aiming for at least. Value for money, good service and even free bottled water in room on arrival. Little things often mean the most.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone, prices just within acceptable and well worth it.

Room Tip: As fzar as I know there wasn't a fitness centre or swimming pool. Night room service would be h...
