I have just returned from a two night break at the Grand Metropole. Only paid £70 for two nights including dinner, breakfast and wine oh and of course a room !
Having read the reviews on here I turned up at the hotel with some trepidation but was pleasantly surprised. The girl on the desk, whilst extremely busy was polite, helpful and provided service with a smile.
The room, whilst not massive was more than adequate for my needs and the bathroom was about as big as the bedroom. A little on the noisy side given that I was street facing but nothing that a pair of earplugs didn't deal with.
The food was somewhat surprisingly good. Although there was not a huge choice, it was hot and tasty. Breakfast allows you to fill up for the day. I do wish hotels would't use the cheap sausages though, quite quite vile !
The free bottle of wine was a rather fruity little number and whilst it wouldn't win any awards given that it was complimentary it was a decent bottle.
The weekday customers seem to people that are in Blackpool on coach trips and whilst the hotel is not quite gods waiting room, it's certainly sharing the same postcode. Ah well at least they are all tucked up in bed by 9pm.
My advice for getting the best price for a package is to use the Britannia Hotels website. They offer some great discounts.
So, thanks to all the staff for making my stay enjoyable. Next stop, Britannia Manchester Airport!
