Loved the hotel. The room was fantastic. The staff very friendly - everything was exceptional. Planning to go back next year for a birthday and will be staying at The Strand again. It was also very reasonably priced considering the rooms were so immaculate. Close to town. Each literally at ur front door. It was beautiful- highly recommended.
