Cheep & Cherfull”

The location is virtually opposite the tower so its a 5 star for that, the rooms well let's say faulty towers. the was very small and you had no chance of seeing out of the windows due to the muck on them. I upgraded our room to the "Nelson Suite" and to be fair for £55 per night it was good, four poster bed, jacuzzi bath, kitchen area with a microwave and ironing facilities & a lounge area but still couldn't see out of the windows due to the muck on them! The staff were very nice and couldn't do enough for you but you could see the frustration as they knew the hotel was run down but there was not much they do. I would return to the Metropole as even though the hotel was run down, the room I ended up with was worth all the money I paid (paid three times the amount for a similar room in wales) and the staff were trying there best with what they have got. On a positive note as we were leaving they had teams both inside and out improving the appearance

really pleasant stay ”

cleanliness, efficient staff, lovely sea view room

We enjoyed our one night stay, it was a trial run really but we shall be back again for the illuminations no doubt with the grandchildren in tow. Metropole Hotel may be an old dinosaur but it has the style and charm plus thick walls only older building possess. Yes it will not be our last stay!!

A pleasant stay”

Exceptional value for money, only hotel that next to the beach, close to shopping centre

Having read the many reviews of the hotel, mostly negative, I found that it is still worth staying, especially I've chosen half-boarded for three nights only at 40 per night. Food is alright and no complaint at all. The reviews are true, my room was facing the tramway and main road, first floor, trams plus traffic noise is a problem but fortunate enough, after 11:30, the noise dies down and I can still have a good sleep until after 7:00 for the first two nights. Friday evening is poor as the drinkers of the pub opposite the road making loud noise that disturbing others.

MULTIPURPOSE BASE”

Location, easy to use, friendly athmosphere

I stayed at the Metropole for four nights to attend a conference in the town. It is right on the sea front and close to all Blackpool's attractions, restaurants and bars. The room was good value and the service efficient. The hotel has its own entertainment which you can join in or ignore at your choice.
