Positive Reviews

Comfortable and modern

The recent renovations have seemingly left the Metro in great shape. Guests find the rooms, as well as the communal areas of the property, have been decorated to a high standard. Plus, the accommodation is frequently described as spotlessly clean and very comfortable.

Good value for money

Previous guests have found the rates at this hotel to be both reasonable and competitive for the area. Plus, there's free Wi-Fi. You'll need to pay a little extra for parking but guests found the charge reasonable. Also, the drinks in the bar are competitively priced.

Pleasant staff

The staff at the Metro is found to be welcoming and friendly toward guests and often seem to go the extra mile to help. The landlord is active on-site and happy to engage with visitors and offer advice about the local area.

Negative Reviews

Breakfast lacks substance

A number of guests found the free continental breakfast lacking substance, commenting that it mainly consisted of cereals, fruit and mini-pastries and omitted bread, meat and cheese. It is possible to upgrade to a cooked breakfast at extra cost.

Parking may frustrate

Several guests found the parking situation a little frustrating. You'll need to find public parking and guests sometimes found that these spaces had a two-hour maximum stay.

Some rooms can be noisy

Rooms at the front of the hotel seem to be subject to a little traffic noise. Plus, guests enjoying a drink in the front garden can often be heard until late in the evening, although this will likely only be an issue in warmer weather.
