I was working in Blackpool last week and as it was too far to commute, I had to find a hotel which would accept both myself, and my dog daughter, Flossie.
The Strand welcomes dogs with open arms, and had a very reasonable rate for a week.And they willingly catered for vegans, even better! Every night in the bar there were lots of dogs, all well behaved, and all much cuddled, treated and admired by all the other guests. It made for lots of conversation and a lovely atmosphere. The staff were just amazing. I had to leave for work early, and they also all came in really early every morning, just so I could have a full vegan english breakfast every morning. The chef was ace and made me whatever I liked. Being an animal loving vegan was no problem for her. The bed was extremely comfortable, and big enough for both me and the dog. The room staff made up my room immaculately every day, including arranging to dog toys neatly! There were five other dogs in the hotel while I was there and I never heard anything other than heavy breathing going past my door, so the rooms are well soundproofed. There was constant high pressure hot water, which is just want you need after a day at work of being urinated on! ( I am a vet) The view from the restaurant is directly over the sea, and the illuminations! It was like a holiday, even though I was working 11 hour days, the staff were so kind, and so friendly and helpful, both Flossie and I felt like princesses all week. If you are owned by a dog, or even if you are not, this is a lovely place to stay, where you will be made to feel very special.
