The staff were friendly and helpful and there are nice common areas that were well heated and attractive. Unfortunately the windows in my room did not seal well and the icy wind came through. The single quilt was insufficient warmth and I had to run the ac and electric blanket all night. I was not adequately warm even with these and had to put on thermals and lay the only towel on top as well. It was a shame because the property is quite charming.

Sorry to hear the Metropole wasn't to your liking. Being a guesthouse from the 1930's it is old. We like to call that "History" & this isn't to everyones liking. The Creepy we like to call "character". If you want modern with the latest mod cons, the Metropole isn't for you. If you want character & history she's the perfect fit.

I liked how they have provided the right amount of modern amenities and comfort without destroying the original character of a 1930's guesthouse. I arrived much later than expected (due to some stressful things), but was helped in a very welcoming and professional manner by the young staff member. My room was cosy and pleasant, and I slept like a log on my very comfy bed with those lovely big pillows.

The staff wee very helpful and friendly. The breakfasts were very good. Our room and bathroom was very small. It was a nice guest house typical of that era.

Friendly helpful checkin, provided excellent recommendations for dinner, beautiful bed linen & offers real milk for the room rather than long life. This is a gem & great value for money. For me this warm & friendly atmosphere beats the hotel chain stay hands down

Our stay at the Metropole was amazing. Our room was clean and very comfortable whilst reflecting the old world charm of years gone by. There were some amazing sitting rooms and loungerooms tucked away if a private meeting or time for reflection was required..
