We were on a 1-night stop during a tour. This is not the best place for a short stop. The road to and from the hotel is very narrow and problematic for a large bus. The hotel has an early 20th century look, quite nice. Dinner was average, breakfast was good. Our room was small and the bath room very... More

This hotel is in need of refurbishment. Smelly rooms and corridors is a draw back. That being said, the place is nice, staff is very attentive and helpful, room with a cramped balcony still gives a seaview. A room facing the road would be a bad idea. Outside area by the water looks very nice.

This place is nice. And it is open in January. My only complaint, and not enough to knock off a star, is that they nickel and dime you. $15 for parking, $10 or breakfast... But if you shop around you can get a nice room for $80 Euro (only $92 US right now!) and you get a very clean room... More

Close to train station, We're 50, and it's an 8 minute easy walk downhill. Front desk perfect, easy walk to small building on waterfront with bellman leading. Waterfront room quaint and clean. So many amenities. One person made this a slightly less than perfect experience. It was the senior server for breakfast. He didn't serve our table, but was bossy... More

Great location though it was noisy with the road outside. Lovely beach area with chairs. Nice staff. Rooms were comfy and clean. Not a good value though as rooms were pricey. My daughter and son in law stayed at Hotel Villa Anita (which is up the hill overlooking water) and there room was much more reasonable and they liked it... More

My husband and I just returned from our trip to Italy and France. Our stay at this family owned and operated hotel was definitely one of highlights of our 2 week trip. We stayed for 4 nts.

As you drive down to the coast for the first time you are genuinely thrilled - it is one of the most beautiful places I have visited. You weave your way into town, and then start looking for your hotel. We had booked the Metropole base on reviews and their website. When we pulled up were were, well, just bummed.... More

We stayed two nights towards the end of September. When we arrived we were upgraded to a larger room, which was very kind! We enjoyed the delicious buffet breakfast, with so many choices it was fantastic. We also had a lovely time enjoying the private beach area the hotel offered. On our second night we got food poisoning from a... More
