Before I went to this hotel I read the review on Tripadvisor and was really put off. I think someone should go from your company to check this hotel out, becuase the majority of people who post on here are habitual complainers. We spoke to one lady while waiting to check in and was complaining that she had left a 42" TV at home and all she had here was a small screen TV.This particular lady goes frequently to this hotel!! This hotel is 2 star, and yet people expect a 5 star establishment, if you want that then go to a 5 star. We have been there for a week, paid £99 for the week and for that we got, a sea view room, clean bedding, room and bathroom, afternoon tea which consisted of sandwich, salad, chrisps, pot of tea and scone with jam each! buffet breakfast which was NOT cold and was plentiful, buffet evening meal which was filling, varied and HOT. The staff in the hotel from reception (especialy Rachel), bar staff and restaurant were helpful, and from the way they were welcomed there are a lot of people who go back time after time. Oh, and I forgot we got a bottle of wine to! Now this was a 2* hotel. I have been in 5* hotels and also Premier holidays, but I could not complain about this holiday, and to top it all the weather was lovely. Entertainment each night was good and on the whole a week enjoyed for all of us. So take it from someone who was put off going on his holiday, DON'T BELIEVE all you read on this website, be like me and give it a try you will be pleasantly surprised. Yes, it is an old hotel, but it still wearing well, and lots of people return two and three times a year, that says it all. We will certainly be back. And for you who moan, next time go 5 star and pay three times as much as you pay at the Metropole and you may, or may not, get a different service.
