On entering the hotel we found the decor clean and the receptionist very helpful. Our double seaview smoking room with spa bath was clean and tidy, the bay window with table and chairs was an advantage and gave a view of the town and sea. The spa bath was great and worth the extra money, the bed was clean though the sheets and duvet cover showed signs of being well used. The room was certainly of a high standard for the price charged, a word of warning if you stay in 314, the shelf on the left of the bay leaks, my wife placed cloths on it ready to wear that night and found them soaked when coming to put them on and had to buy black bags next day to put them in so we could pack them, though there was no evidence of water ingress, we did inform reception and they did say they would look into it, an offer of the use of a dryer would have been more helpful.
Dinner and breakfast were served buffet style and was good quality and plentiful, though the smoked haddock looked and tasted more like mackerel, some of the staff were a little "offish" and the dinner staff had their waistcoat tensioners undone, being greeted with just one word "soup?" at dinner and "tea,coffee?" in the morning with no smile was not condusive to a pleasant meal.
Overall our experience of the Grand Metropole was good and we will certainly be staying again
