We stayed in the Metropole from 16th-23rd August and really enjoyed our week there. When we checked in, although I had requested a ground floor room when booking 6 weeks previously we had been allocated one on the 1st floor! (is reading not one of the essential elements of a receptionist job), my partner has mobility problems and sometimes needs... More

Myself and my wife have just spent 2 nights here and what a pity it's fallen into such a state, this once proud iconic building is now in the hands of Britannia hotels and Pontins. Well they should close it down in November after the illuminations and spend some money on the place and bring back into the 21st century.... More

This is the worse hotel I have EVER stayed in! The staff were rude booking me in while gossiping on the phone, the place was dirty, the TV in the room is terrestrial only with poor reception, the milk in the room was off and when we got more from reception the best before was 3 weeks earlier. They still... More

I remember staying here about 15 years ago and being happy with it so either they've let it go down hill or I got lucky with my room then (or my standards have gone up!!) It really is very basic and only clean-ish (ie. clean bedroom but mould & mildew round the shower and that kind of thing). If you... More

We booked 3 nights at the Metropole for a long Bank Holiday weekend. Having stayed at a hotel in the same group earlier in the year we were sure this hotel would be as good and we would have a great weekend. How wrong we were. The reception staff on arrival were clearly tired after a busy day. They directed... More

We had a three day stay at the grand. From check in to check out everything was excellent. The staff were very helpful nothing was a trouble to them. The food was very enjoyable as much or as little as you wanted several choices at each mealtime. Entertainment at night was also very good. Would definitely stay here again.do
