The Metro
Ranked #14 of 41 Southport B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 October 2013

Having been double booked at another hotel in Southport by booking.com we were told about the Metro and that they had one room left. On arrival we were surprised at the contemporary look of the interior which looked like a top interior designer had been involved in the decoration. We were warmly greeted by a lady and shown to the room. Again we were amazed at the décor and co-ordination. The room was spotless with twin beds. The en-suite again was also spotless and looked almost new.
As a director of a major national newspaper I have stopped in numerous five star plus hotels throughout the world and would rank the Metro up with the best which is amazing considering it is a b&b in Southport. But we all know you do not judge a book by its cover. Although we did not eat evening meal at the hotel we did see meals taken through to the dining room and they looked excellent, better in fact than the meal I had last week at a famous Michelin starred restaurant in Manchester.
Every member of staff was pleasant and courteous. We most definitely will be staying there again and would have no hesitation in recommending it to any of our friends.

I can not give enough credit to this hotel, bar & restaurant. From the 1st phone call with (Amanda) she did everything in her power to make our booking happen. On arrival we found all staff (Lauren on the bar) to be so very helpful, polite and friendly. The hotel itself was immaculate, rooms beautifully decorated and again you could eat of the floors it was that clean. We ate in the restaurant and the food quality and presentation was 5* (and myself being an ex restaurant owner am normally picky!) Breakfast again served with a friendly smile was delicious. I will be back and highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: superking room is worth the little bit extra.

My boyfriend and I visited the metro after hearing a great review from a relative. We both really enjoyed the food and found the service just rite. A very lovely evening with a warm welcome. The sharing dessert was amazing and we will certainly be returning for our 3rd anniversary. Please keep up the great food and service we love it.

we recently stayed here for 2 nights as a party of 16 Golfers. All the staff were absolutely brilliant + Mike the Managers son always went out of his way to help us with parking even moving his own car on the 2nd night as it was so busy.
The cooked breakfasts were very good and we also ate in on Saturday evening and the food and wine was excellent.
The rooms are very clean and modern including the bathrooms.
Would definitely consider using this Hotel again.

Like previous reviewer stayed here with 9 golfers. All the staff were without exception incredibly helpful and efficient. Rooms were immaculate. We had early breakfasts most days and the cook and waitress turned up early to accommodate us. Had 2 evening meals and again they were very good and reasonably priced. Even the weather was quite good so that we could sit outside enjoying drinks in the very pleasant courtyard area. Couldn't fault it.

Room Tip: Ignore my ratings of swimming pool and fitness centre. There isn't one I clicked here by mistake...
