Historical Traveler Reviews The Strand Hotel Blackpool
Very friendly staff
we stayed at the strand over christmas . jane partner and staff made us feel very wecome , clean rooms good food & good entertainment, recommended . the chesson & kinsey famlies
New Year Beak
We stayed at this Hotel for the New Year Break and had a great time. The public areas, bars and dining room are modern and very clean, the food was excellent and the menu over the three days we were there was varied. The entertainment was good with at least two artists a night and we did not need to leave the hotel if we did not want to as everything was provided. Our fellow hotel guests were all friendly which made for an excellent stay. The staff could not do enough to help to make your stay enjoyable especially Aaron and Jane(the owners i think). The bedrooms are basic but are in the process of being modernised and refurbished which when complete will make this hotel hard to beat. We have already booked for New Year 2007 and look forward to another enjoyable and relaxing stay.

Strand Hotel- recommended
Stayed over Xmas. The staff, the food, the entertainment and the atmosphere were all excellent. Little touches, like quality Christmas crackers and presents and tea, coffee and cake being available 24 hours added to the high standard. Rooms need some work but renovation will be complete in the next few months. Would certainly return.

Definitely going back!!
I don't normally post reviews on such websites but after reading the last
review find myself in state of shock. I stayed at this hotel last week and
had a fantastic time along with the remainder of the guests, or so it
seemed! I am flabbergasted at such a review and I know the rest of my family
will be also. The food was excellent, entertainment was so good we never
even left the place at night
and as for the rooms, I couldn't fault ours at
all and we had a "bog standard" family room! Clean and comfortable and Ive
stayed in a few!! I will be looking to stay in Blackpool next Easter and
will certainly be booking the same hotel.
Would not recommed! go somewhere else!
ok, this hotel as had obvious improvements, that is, reception bar area, lounge ,dining area etc.. and by the last persons review some nice rooms... but dont expect this thoughout the hotel... my room (108) was a very small double, that had not seen any upgrade in many years, tv / heating didnt work , wonderful views of the back yard etc.. all for the princly sum of £90!!! as i said.. try somewhere else first...
What a great Hotel
Both my wife and i have been coming to Blackpool for 18 years and have stayed in many of its hotels.
We both think that staying in a nice hotel is one of the major parts of anyones holiday. The Strand hotel went way past our expectations. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful.
The Hotel itself was very clean, tidy and modern. The room we stayed in was the executive suite with a sea view. We had a king size bed with ensuite, soft lighting and very up to date furniture.
The sea views were stunning. The food served was of a very high standard and the service was second to none. Both my wife and i would recomend the Strand to anyone wanting to stay in Blackpool as they would not be disapointed.
When we return to Blackpool we will be booking into the Strand.

... century English paintings, and some amazing Wedgwood and Chinese ceramics, we had a look at the church and a walk through the gardens, the roses still blooming - and even scented! And then of course a sit down and drink at the pub. We still had time for a last walk along the cycle track, and a last delicious dinner with Omnia. And even caught a new New Tricks episode!! Now off to bed and ready for new adventure ...
... off to traffic. Wouldn’t be a problem except that our hotel is on the docks! As everyone knows, Sat Nav doesn’t deal too well with diversions so we spent the first 20 minutes being told "Turn back…..turn back!". Eventually we got on to the motorway and made it to the studios quick quickly.
After 25+ years of filming on this set they have now built a new set a couple of miles away; the last episode was filmed here ...
... has been renovated recently inside and is amazing. Planned in a spiral - a bit like the Guggenheim in NY, or the Seattle library, with an egg shaped dome in the ceiling. Really beautiful - and very modern. And the adjoining round building is still in classic form by contrast. By afternoon it was fine and even sunny. Amr and I went for 2 hour walk along this pathway we found. It is like walking in a tree tunnel, and seems ...

Yes, just 25 more sleeps until we fly, fly, fly!!! I've been very busy with life, work, playing the guitar, other things ... But now New York is in sight. Now i can visualise 25 sleeps, just over three weeks away. When I first booked our holiday, I wanted the weeks to go very slowly so that I could take my time with planning because for me, that is also part of the holiday. Plus, I know that ...
