We paid $330 per night for a “king room”. This was a small room by today’s standard with a king size bed. The bathroom had no floor towel and generally not up to motel room standard. A lovely old building close to plenty of places to eat. I asked if there was a bar to get something to drink as it was raining outside and we had been traveling all day but was told that the bar was only open at breakfast! We did wonder whether we had been given the wrong room by mistake as the website said there were some rooms for $111 per night.

Communication was great. Property was interesting and historic. Unfortunately there's insufficient parking for the number of guests. The room was comfortable, but questionable hygiene (floor not vacuumed, bathroom roughly cleaned) Noise from drunk guests below came straight through floor.

The Metropole has old world character. The room was cosy and the bed was comfortable. The reception person was friendly and helpful. Short walk to restaurants. We would stay there again.

We stayed at the metropole to break our trip and found it very old and worn out. The parking area was pretty rough and the walk up to the top floor difficult. That being said it is a very unique and historical building and kept very clean. Checking out I was made to wait while the receptionist had a lovely chat with her friend on the phone, luckily the owner come in and she immediately realised I was there. Due to the hike upstairs we won’t be returning.

Convenient location right near to but not noise affected by the station, just off the main drag so quiet. The park nearby is horrible and weirdos hang out there
