3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed here for one night over the August bank holiday. Hotel staff are very helpful and friendly which is good and they allow dogs which is good too. We was given a sea facing room at no extra cost which I was pleased about as the rooms facing the back don't have the best view! Hotel from what I saw... More

I have stayed here twice now and nothing is too much. Lovely clean hotel with everything you could need. Good selection off bar food and drinks. Within easy walking distance of north pier and tram station just outside. Good sea views with most rooms offering a view along with the breakfast room.

The service of the hotel was remarkable! However our room was not to our expectations as we had booked a room with a sea view but instead we got a room with view of a Bin ... Sleeping was uneasy since there was a lot of noise coming outside of the room...

Do not let my 4 stars put you off, the staff and service along with the quality of the food makes up for the old and poorly maintained decor. The housekeepers keep on top of the cleaning and the rooms are always cleaned. The hotel is well placed to visit the town centre, with a bus and tram stop outside.... More

Spent Mon to Fri in this hotel via a Dodds tour. Food was quite good and the staff were excellent. The room quality lets the whole experience down. The carpet in the room and throughout the hotel is either not very clean or just plain dull. The beds were good and the rooms were cleaned daily. The en-suite was a... More

Many thanks for your review which I regard as positive with enough fair constructive criticism with which to continue improving. The hotel public areas are undergoing a major redecoration and the lift speed will be improved dramatically towards the end of the year to improve the experience even more for guests. Thanks again for the feedback and we look forward... More

We stayed here for seven days in. August in two rooms, a double and a single. Both rooms were clean, however the bathrooms could do with the bath edging being replaced due to some damp marks. The room we were in was a single with a double bed in it, so there was not much room. However the rooms were... More

Just returned from a 5 day break at the Strand. Excellent staff, nothing is too much trouble and the food is of a high standard. Rooms are various sizes, from compact singles to executive with sea view.The location is a short distance from the madness 15-20 mins walk, this is a good thing and ensures a good night sleep, there...

Hi Roisin, Thank you so much for taking the time to post your review on tripadvisor, we are very much grateful for the positive feedback.
