The Grand Metropole is the only hotel in Blackpool which is located between the sea and the promenade, offering uninterrupted views out across the Irish Sea. Close to both the North Pier and the famous Blackpool Tower, this hotel is perfectly located for all of Blackpool's attractions and entertainment venues.
The 209 en-suite bedrooms vary in size, are fairly simple but all tastefully decorated with modern facilities including TV, Hairdryer and Tea and Coffee Making facilities. A lot of rooms have sea views.
There are several bars and restaurants for guests to relax and enjoy. The Promenade Restaurant is open to non premier guests and serves dishes from the 3 course set evening menu. Breakfast is served here too. The Worall Restaurant is available to Premier Guests and has wonderful sea views. The Coastal Cafe Bar has fantastic sea front views and patio seating which looks out towards the North Pier and the Famous Blackpool Tower, where you sit out on the patio. It serves hot and cold light meals throughout the day.
A very pretty Victorian facade and interior to match.
This accommodation has a small lobby.
This is a classic Seaside hotel benefitting from a good location enabling you to fully explore attractions within Blackpool. This is competitively priced and fairly simple accommodation within a beauty sea facing Victorian building - it is ideal for families. There is also a Games room with snooker table. Limited car parking available too. (GW 12/2009)

We really did not enjoy our stay at the metropole and would never stay there again. On entering the hotel, we were met by a dreadful smell which did not leave for the entire duration of our stay. The lifts were in absolute dire need of updating as was most of the hotel.
The dining room and eating utensils had the aroma of dank, dirty cloths and the tables were sticky. We couldn't actually bear to stay and eat the breakfast after the first morning. the carpet in the lobby was sticky underfoot.
The roon was very badly furnished and the dressing table drawer was so badly broken it could not be used.
We were so sorry to have chosed this hotel, it ruined our stay, the hotel was full of pensioners and if we had known this we would never have chosen it.
We also had a bad experience with the barman when we purchased a drink, he made really bad comments about us using a £50.00 note and made a dramatic display of testing the note which we had gotten in the bank.
Room keeping leaves a lot to be desired, we had no hand towels for 2 days and the toiletries were sparce at best.
All in all this was a dreadful hotel, unhelpful, disinterested staff and just plain drty.
