Pets Welcome

At The Strand Hotel, we are proud to welcome all guests and our canine friends and small family pets (sorry no cats) are no exception.

We are not just a dog friendly hotel, we are a dog understanding hotel!

A Little Welcome Gift from a Dog Friendly Hotel

On arrival, our guests with dogs will be offered a complimentary bag with disposable poop bags and a selection of delicious dog biscuits.

Where can you and your Dog Go at The Strand Hotel

Your dog has free access to some of the public areas of the hotel except the Dining Rooms for obvious reasons. Dogs are also permitted in the bedrooms sharing with their owners. There are many walks around the hotel that are suitable for exercising and the section of beach directly opposite the hotel allows dogs. There is many miles of promenade all with regularly sited dog litter bins. The beach can be muddy so please ask to use the back entrance to the hotel. There we have a hose to shower the dog down and we can provide large towels.

During you stay you will want to explore Blackpool and the surrounding countryside and beaches. Forward planning is good and the is usually up to date and has a full list of dog-friendly beaches, gardens, restaurants, dog sitters, groomers, taxis and local vets to ensure peace of mind during your stay.

Do Not Panic!

OK so you left in a hurry and you forgot the ...?

Well we have a supply of all the regular dog items and the local supply is close by if we haven't got it. If we have it then there is no charge for use.


There is a small charge of £5 per dog per night
