The Metropole is operated by Britannia Hotels, the owners of Pontin's. It was formerly a Butlin's hotel.

Built in 1776, the hotel was owned by Butlins from 1955 until 1998 when it was purchased by Grand Hotels. In 2004 the hotel was sold to Britannia Hotels.
Interestingly it's the only hotel in Blackpool on the seaward side of the tram tracks.
