Travelled in a supremely comfortable coach driven by Paul Anderson of Andersons Coaches, Ferrybridge, West Yorkshire, a family-operated company with whom I have made many holiday trips to Germany over the past ten years.This was our first Tinsel and Turkey break and, to be honest, I really don't know what to make of it!

Thank you for your review of The Strand Hotel, Blackpool. Over the 8 years I have been here the hotel has been called many things, but both "wet and windy" it has not. As with your demand "do it, or I'll put a bad review on tripadvisor", coupled with, "ah, the power of tripadvisor" - I am still unsure you...

I have nothing but good things to say about this hotel. The staff can't do enough for you. The rooms are spotless and well presented and the food is traditional and tasty. I would recommend it to anybody and it's a place I will be going back to again

Stayed here all inclusive for my honeymoon. Great sea view. A bit out of the way, but with our free travel passes only 2 minutes on the tram to the tower. The staff are amazing and so helpful and friendly. And the food is great. Definitely going to come again with the kids and maybe even bring the dog. 5*

It says a lot for this hotel that many of the guests we met have stayed there several times a year for many years. It is very friendly and the owners and staff work very hard indeed to make your stay enjoyable. The food was good, too, with a good variety. The hotel provides good access for the disabled or...

Stayed here with my girlfriend on the 2nd November for 1 night. Couldn't park on the front of the hotel but found a space on the side street just round the corner, so no worries. Lovely, modern place and great location (quiet but only a short walk or tram ride along the front to bars, restaurants etc.). Buffet style breakfast,...

This hotel provided everything we needed for our family visit to Blackpool. The rooms were clean warm and comfortable.
