Awful! Great building but filthy! Window in room was open and couldn't be closed, the bed and bath were full of flies! Disgusting! I paid £108 for one night for my son and I, I'm sure a cheesy B&B at £25 a night would have been cleaner and offered better service. Just not what I expecting!!!

Booked this hotel in June for one night at bank holiday weekend, we were celebrating a birthday. I emailed the hotel asking for an early check in and late checkout, I also informed them of our celebration. No reply even to this day. On arrival the hotel at first glance is a magnificent old building, it is in a great... More

Stayed at the Grand Metropole last December for a girly weekend with my sister and daughter and had a fabulous time! The hotel as in other reviews is very tired and worn, some saying it is tatty but this is part of its charm being oldy worldy. The main thing is that it is comfortable and clean and there alot...

Booked in at the not so grand Metropole for bank holiday weekend. I have stayed in all of Blackpool's Britannia hotels and to be honest I wasn't expecting too much. On arrival I was shocked at the state on the entrance area. So dirty with broken glass and cigarette butts every where. Our room was pretty ghastly ans stank of... More

Service ok but needs some tweaking. Staff smoking outside our window, towels small and not enough, no glasses for water, no hair dryer, bed needs to be bigger as my husband and I aren't big and the bed was smaller than anything I have experienced since I was a child! Limited by it's history. Double the bedroom size and raise... More

Dirty, awful food, poor customer service, walls peeling away, water coming through ceiling, dirty plates and cups. I could keep going but it would be easier to list the good things... I would pay not to stay here it was that bad. It would be nicer to sleep rough on the beach.
