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.

... I did fear that I had too much to do. I made a panic inducingly long to do list in my room piled with stuff to be taken to charity shops and my parent's house and struggled with finding travel insurance. However once that was sorted I felt better until I thought of the enormity of what I'm going to do and became quite nervous. I keep reasoning with myself that eighteen year olds travel all the time with no worries and I definitely ...
Quiet day, just us. The four of us went for a walk along the seafront in the morning, it was very cold and windy. Marni, wanted to wear her sparkly skipping shoes. What to do? We went with it, if it gets her on her feet, who are we to push for the winter boots that will keep her feet warm? So two pairs of sock and sparkly skipping shoes it was. First event was a puddle which had iced over and then we had to stop at the railway crossing. The train ...
The magician, Steve Price, was truly excellent. His tricks and illusions were very well done, and were all new to us. He also performed a non-stop funny patter and got people out of the audience to help him. We enjoyed his show very much and are looking forward to seeing him again later in the cruise.
We finished the evening off by going along to the Lido Lounge and doing the quiz. We were joined by another couple, Malcolm and ...
... do something for Armistice Day.
The service was very good; it finished with a bugler playing the Last Post followed by two minutes’ silence. Then we all went to the aft decks, where a large memorial wreath was committed to the deep.
Afterwards we returned to 5050 and I got changed into my gym gear! Yes, I am actually determined to go to the gym every day to try to keep my fitness up and also to work off at least some of the extra calories ...
... footwear. We’d worn our boots instead of packing them, as they’d take too much room up in the case.
Our cabin is a superior outside one, with a window instead of portholes, twin beds, a dressing table and a couple of chairs. The bathroom has a bath tub as well as a shower. This would be our ‘home’ for the next 16 nights. :-)
As we are cruising all-inclusive, we decided to go and have a drink (free!) so we went to ...
