“Summer Break”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

My family and i stayed midweek in the summer of last year and overall had a good stay. The room was clean although a little on the smaller side but this was fine as you are not often in the room. Few teething issues with the room at the start but these were quickly rectified by maintenance and I found the bar manager and Carl to be extremely helpful and friendly. The breakfast and evening meal were nice with good selection of food. There was also free parking outside the hotel and tram stop across the road.

Overall I would stay at the hotel again and if you have booked you wont regret it.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review on TripAdvisor, even so long after your stay your feedback is still important to us. All we ever ask is that, on the rare occasion there is an issue with a room, we have an opportunity to put this right for our guests, which you did and we were able to rectify it early on so it didn't affect the rest of your stay. Hopefully we'll see you all again back at the hotel again in the near future, maybe even this summer.

As a group travelling to Grand National Trip we were allocated this Hotel as part of our package, can i just say personnaly we would recommend this Hotel to the max. The service received from arrival to departure was outstanding, and the staff could not do enough for our party, which ranged in all ages. The hotel is clean the rooms are comfortable and the food is excellent, and the Drink very reasonable priced. So any one looking for a Hotel to stay in while visiting Blackpool check this place out.

Hi Fiona, thank you for the good review for what was an excellent Grand National weekend. We had two groups booked in and I know the other group is already booked in for next year, so hopefully you'll get booked in early and we'll see you all again too!

Having held family reunion get together's
since 1982 every 3 years at Easter in Blackpool The Strand Hotel is by far the best hotel we have ever used. The Management (Aaron and Jane) made the whole event the best ever from our 1st meeting with planning taking the bookings (60 plus) with several changes we made nothing was to much trouble all our request were met to perfection. It was such a pleasure for us to get so much positive feed back from all our family with regards to cleanliness through out, room decor, meals, bar, staff, entertainment and much more.
With out any hesitation we will be back at The Strand Hotel again in 3 years if not before like other family members planning on a summer break.
Having experienced many hotels in Blackpool I would highly recommend this one.
Big Big Thanks to all at The Strand especially Aaron and Jane for making our family reunion one to remember.

Hi Alan, Janet and family, thank you for taking the time to write a review on TripAdvisor. After so many years at The Strand Hotel it was definitely our favourite Easter weekend here and one we look forward to accommodating again for you and your lovely family for your reunion. Of all the events we've held at the hotel the feedback has been some of the best we've ever had for any weekend. I believe there was even talk of making it every 2 years! Either way let us know and we look forward to seeing you all again.

We had a family reunion here at Easter and it was fantastic!!! We have our reunion in Blackpool every three years and we have stayed in various hotels over the years, but this was by far the best ever. Arron, Jane and all the staff were so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The rooms are nicely decorated and very clean. The food was amazing. The entertainment was wonderful (apart from my karaoke singing, which was awful) and the children's Easter egg hunt with the pirates was brilliant. The whole weekend was so much fun, we will definately be back. A big thank you to all the staff

Hi Bubbs, thank you for the positive feedback. The weekend was a huge success due in part to the huge amount of organising that you put into it! The feedback has been some of the best we've ever had for an event at the hotel and we look forward to seeing you all again in the future, if not before then, maybe in 3 years or maybe even 2!

Hi Helen, thank you for posting your feedback on TripAdvisor - as good as the weekend was it is still very important to us! We thoroughly enjoyed the weekend too and the staff and performers commented what an enjoyable Easter it was and what a great family you all were, especially in participating in everything. Thanks again and we hope to see you again in the future.

My family and I have just returned from a wonderful Easter break. Made wonderful by the excellent hotel choice we made. All the staff, the food, the whole of the hotel and the entertainment provided on both Friday and Saturday night and the Pirates of the Caribean Easter Egg Hunt on Easter morning.

The breakfast choice was incredible, fit for a king! The dinner menu had something for everyone and to an excellent standard. Everywhere was clean and tidy, with a refreshing contempory decoration.

Nothing was too much bother. I would recommend it to anyone!

Hi Sarah, Richard and family. Thank you all for your great review and also for making the weekend such fun and so memorable. The Easter egg treasure was good fun and the parents seemed to enjoy the morning just as much as the children! We'll have to think of something different for next time! Hopefully we'll see you all again at the hotel soon, if not then at the next reunion.

Spent Easter Weekend at this hotel. The Staff, food, rooms end entertainment were absolutely outstanding. The Pirates and the egg hunt on Sunday morning was enjoyed by all the kids and the adults. I would highly recommend this hotel and will definitely be going back.
