I arrived with my young son on 23/08/2016 for one night. My first impressions of the place were good. The front garden was nice, the hotel looked clean and the staff were friendly. We were shown to room 2, which was clean and modern, but there was no window, only a sealed skylight! The air was hot, muggy and completely... More

Lovely clean place to stay. Great cheap beer Monday - Thursday. Couldn't comment on food as we were up and out at departure time. Only problem was we were in room 7 which is situated on inner of the building so no windows. Really warm and the fan was neither use for anything. Didn't sleep too well even after a... More

I'd recommend this venue to anyone who wants to host the perfect party in a perfect setting. Set in the centre of Southport it was ideally placed for family and friends. The Metro had a beautiful function room, nothing was to much trouble for staff. We all had a wonderful night. Very flexible on arrangements, we brought our own DJ... More

Reasonably spacious and beautifully decorated. Breakfast was very nice. We sat next to the window and were severed a full English with tea and coffee. Staff were all friendly and service... More

Stayed here for two nights, room spotlessly clean if a bit in the small side. Staff on duty the night we arrived and at breakfast both days were professional and friendly, staff on second night, behind bar not so professional, we asked for a couple more teabags to take to our room, and she went to collect them and didn't...

We chose to have our wedding breakfast and reception at the Metro. On our initial meeting with Lesley, we were sold on the amazing function room and her positive attitude to helping organise our day. We were not disappointed as Lesley, James and their team delivered on everything they promised and more. We could not have had a better day.... More

Two little gripes I'm afraid- 1. The room was absolutely tiny and we had to keep the heavy curtains shut at all times as the window overlooked the beer garden. Maybe there should be voile panels in addition to the curtains to ensure some privacy? 2. When we checked in, we weren't given any information regarding where and what time... More
