                • We liked its fantastic position, the shower was very good and the room adequate for an overnight stop, the hotel was a great location for us. The price for a late booked was excelant and staff were helpful. Bath towels supplied were also clean, coffee in morning was very nice.

                  No secure luggage store, the public areas were depressing and tired, windows had not been cleaned for may years. Food was poor.

                • The location is good and the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Cheap price, you get you pay for, most of the staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are all well equipped and look newly refurbished.

                  Public areas dirty and s car park about 3 streets away. All in all not tyhe best place to stay, old Folks Home and very the service was appauling slow. Bedroom furniture was grim and broken, unhelpful Breakfast was poor.

                  Reception staff a little sulky looking and a manky old bed, manky old furniture. Breakfast was very good.

                  Very poor and extremely poor value for money, staff were rude.

                • The view from pur room was fantastic, the Grand Metropole was just dreadful the worse hotel we have ever stayed in and the staff were helpful and polite. The shower was the only thing that was good.

                  Worst in Blackpool, filthy dirty windows and the breakfast was poor cardboard toast undercooked sausages pink in the middle had to send back.

                • Ideal for the town center and the north shore train station, the location of this hotel is really good, the junior reception staff tried to be helpful. Showers are amazing and vegetarians are well catered for and the service was excellent.

                  Bar areas not very clean as is the dining room, dirty crockery/cutlery and the car park is too busy and cars park over other cars. The place is old and like a rabbit warren, windows filthy, not the best choices I have ever made.

                • Great location and excellent value. Staff very good and warm room. Nice breakfast, plenty of choice of delicious sweet.

                  Worst hotel in the world and filthy dirty windows. Poor food selection.

                • Central location, the worst hotel and good price. Staff pleasant and and helpful, large warm room, the food was plentiful and tasty.

                  Poor quality breakfast, nice shower and the coffee making facilities, kettle, spoon etc were not very clean.

                • Location excellent, great decor and overall rating, a good eight of ten. Nice xmas decorations, friendly staff and manager exceptionally attentive professional. Reception rooms were decorated well, breakfast, we found was very good, as much as you could eat hot buffet.

                  A very tired hotel and bed uncomfortable. Food was not good, very poor.

                • The location was brilliant, no day light at all The hotel was sad and for the price we paid was the best accomadatipn I'. Staff were friendly and helpful, room was good. The food was nice.

                  Budget shouldn't mean dirty and poor service. No hot water either and restaurant procedures somewhat chaotic and crowded. The receptionist didnt seem to bothered to help.

                • The room was clean, tidy and had the added bonus of a spa bath, on the plus side, breakfast was good.

                  The food disgusting.
