Positive Reviews

Bay views are magnificent

If you stay at The Metropole, chances are the views out over the bay, Camel Estuary and the harbour town of Padstow will be a highlight Enjoy these from your room, the restaurant and bar, or sun-dependent, on the hotel’s terrace.

Proximity for Padstow

Guests only have to walk a few minutes to be right in the middle of charming Padstow and its harbour, where plenty of delicious seafood awaits It is also a good spot for basing yourself when exploring the North Cornish coastline.

Restaurant cuisine just as good

The area is well-known for its seafood and that which you will find in The Metropole’s restaurant does not sully the reputation You will also find the free breakfast to be hot and cooked to perfection.

Negative Reviews

Hot under the collar

Some guests have reported issues with not being able to turn the heating down, and sweltering because the windows could not be opened far enough In some cases, the extractor fans outside were too loud to keep them open at night.

On the pricey side

While many found value in their stay, a number of guests were of the opinion that The Metropole is a bit expensive for what you get.

Needs investment for upgrade

Guests have previously complained about the lift not working, and the general impression of the hotel has been one of a dated, but charming building with creaky floors Most seem to be fairly understanding — when you stay in an authentic 1900s Victorian building, it is not unexpected.

On-going upgrades

Perhaps due to this, refurbishments are on-going, however guests have found this to bring minimal noise disruption to their stay.
