The Strand Hotel
Travel Blogs from Blackpool
Today we travelle to Liverpool to see Craig's beloved Liverpool play at Anfield. Unfortunately we lost 2-0 to Southampton, and we received a parking ticket! But the boys all had a wonderful time. The seats were great, the atmosphere was good (esp during 'you'll never walk alone'). We had dinner in the 'Boot Room Cafe' afterwards, which was a great way to end ...
... England and then had to catch another train on platform 7 to Liverpool and once again waited about 15 min. And another hour later we got to Liverpool. Our hotel was just a few blocks away (thanks Susan) so we got rid of our luggage and I was starved for some real food so walked to The Hub bar and kitchen , walked around to look at shops BUT they were all closing at 6;30! I didn't realize Europe closed so early! I guess it gives me time to blog this. Good nite at 7:03pm ...
... going to Oz! People keep telling me it will be the most amazing thing I'll ever do... I am looking forward to seeing the world, meeting new people, experiencing different cultures but most of all I'm looking forward to finding ME! The countdown is on ...
... popular in Victorian times, but looking a bit worse for wear now. Our Hotel has a great view over the Promenade and the hotel staff are all very friendly. The streets are lit up each night with the "Illuminations", a colourful display of street lighting which have appeared every year for the last 101 years, except during each of the World Wars. Another feature of the town is the Tower, modelled after the other tower in ...

At least the scum that might try to burgle the house will have a clean floor to walk on , clean dishes and cups to use and a tidy house to welcome them!

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
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.

Fantastic home cooked food, all fresh,good variety,and plenty,excellent menu to choose from.Very good entertainment.We could not fault the hospitality of Jane and all the staff who made our stay most enjoyable. We will be booking again.

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...
