Lovely clean place to stay. Great cheap beer Monday - Thursday. Couldn't comment on food as we were up and out at departure time. Only problem was we were in room 7 which is situated on inner of the building so no windows. Really warm and the fan was neither use for anything. Didn't sleep too well even after a...

I'd recommend this venue to anyone who wants to host the perfect party in a perfect setting. Set in the centre of Southport it was ideally placed for family and friends. The Metro had a beautiful function room, nothing was to much trouble for staff. We all had a wonderful night. Very flexible on arrangements, we brought our own DJ...

We chose to have our wedding breakfast and reception at the Metro. On our initial meeting with Lesley, we were sold on the amazing function room and her positive attitude to helping organise our day. We were not disappointed as Lesley, James and their team delivered on everything they promised and more. We could not have had a better day....

Two little gripes I'm afraid- 1. The room was absolutely tiny and we had to keep the heavy curtains shut at all times as the window overlooked the beer garden. Maybe there should be voile panels in addition to the curtains to ensure some privacy? 2. When we checked in, we weren't given any information regarding where and what time...
