Stayed up in Blackpool on a short term business trip and was recommended to use this particular hotel. Was a few miles from my place of work but with a bus stop right outside and the trams, it was easy to get anywhere quickly. Staff are very friendly and go the extra mile to, definitely felt like they care about... More

No entertainment for children, not child friendly at all. Food discusting. Bad mannered staff. Health and safety issues in rooms. Expensive drinks, unless you don't mind being ripped off for happy shopper apple juice, and you can tell with the quality of food and drinks at this so called hotel that everything is done on the cheap. Have found better... More

Booked Monday to Friday through Blackpool promotions, walked into reception and the first thing that hits you is the smell of disinfectant, nice and clean one may think but it only stands to hide an unfriendly odour tho I must say that went away as we went up to our room. Room was tiny with one slim line wardrobe, we... More

They brought in staff to give us breakfast at 5 am on one of our days. The staff were friendly and very helpful. However I found my room cramped, I couldn't fit my wheelchair... More

I stayed in this hotel for just under 6 months on a long term trip. I have been to plenty of Hotels in my time and this one certainly ranks in my top 2. The staff are great they made me feel so welcome and part of their family I barely noticed at times that I was so long away... More

A really good b & b. Unpretentious and clean but the real jewel is the staff! They are to a man the most friendly, helpful and cheerful bunch. Having worked in similar work when younger I know how awful it can be but they all were only too happy to meet customer needs! They worked long hours and kept smiling!!... More

I was very impressed with The Strand Hotel and felt at home straightaway. The staff are very friendly, well presented and helpful, and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are very comfortable, tastefully decorated with fantastic views across the sea, the free wi-fi was very welcome and the food was spot on. We went to the Mamma Mia murder... More
