Didnt get there as they cancelled last minute

For some reason this hotel cancelled our booking 3 days before we were due to go, in September 2021, due to an event I was informed. I called booking.com and was advised that this would be looked into and they would be taken off Booking.com if they are showing availability that they do not have. I have noticed that other people are also leaving reviews stating that this hotel has done the same to them and they were told that the hotel is now not open to the public as they are being paid more from the goverment to take refugees. Unsure why booking.com and other sites are still showing availability for this hotel when clearly they are cancelling after people have booked a few days before people are due to go.
Avoid at all cost.

I tried to get a room but was turned away because they are no longer functioning as a hotel. A member of staff told me that they are having to house asylum seekers. She told me another hotel to go to,so thank you for that. The hotel looked very dirty and dated so she did me a huge favour.

Stayed here for one night 7th September for the lights , how lucky we were that it was ONLY one night !!!!it was an absolute disgusting hotel that was more like a third rate care home paid extra for a sea view that was blocked out by scaffolding , no shower gel/shampoo sachets , tiny thumb nail size price of soap and this cost us £99 .00 . The worst hotel EVER that I have stayed in ! Considering that we were only there one night we had to go to reception 5TIMES because the cards to open your room door DO NOT WORK !!!!! Crap hotel , I would rather stay in a tent as this dump !!!!!!
Total joke unless your a migrant.

Stayed at the Metropole at Blackpool for 2 nights as there was a mess up on a booking elsewhere. We chose the Metropole as it saved a few quid on what we had already spent out and was said to be disabled accessible. The hotel looked so run down on arrival we though we had turned up to a doss house for the homeless and disadvantaged. Although we where wanting to pay cash we had to provide photo ID if we wanted this option. As we are getting on a bit we don't have that type of ID so ended up paying by card ( think track and Trace by an over reaching government) anyway after paying we made our way to the accessible room which was inaccessible by mobility scooter as there where narrow corridors with doors to navigate to which meant the wife having to walk from the main entrance to the room at the far end of the hotel. As we got to the corridor our room was on we whet hit by a stench of sewerage and the room was no better. There was one grubby looking towel and I refused to sleep in the bed and wanted to get back in the car and go home. The staff where OK but you could tell they didn't want to be there but we made the best of it. On the second day we where informed that we would need to vacate the car park by 10 the following day because of a run or something however it became apparent that many customers where angry as they had been told the had to vacate their rooms to make way for another party, that party being allegedly over 300 Afgans who where being housed their and guests who had payed to get away from the stresses of lockdowns etc where basically booted out. This included a disabled lady who was transfered to another hotel which had insidently told them they had no rooms the day before????? And another couple who had learning difficulties had also been told they had to move to another hotel furthe away from the pier meaning if they wanted to enjoy the sights they would need to pay for transport. Absolutely dispicable attitude to paying customers and am just glad that Alex Belfield a journalist was covering a show at the North pier and actually took time out to report on the situation at the metropole Hotel.
