June 14th I took my three 5 year old grandchildren for an overnight stay. Plan was to get away from the World Cup. The Metropolitan was a brilliant choice. Our room had a double and two singles. Lovely bathroom, with two hand basins which the kids thought was mega brill. The welcome we received on arrival from Steve was lovely,... More

I stayed here this week and was really impressed. I loved the décor and the rooms were clean and comfortable. I had a single room which was small but well designed, with everything you need. My daughter had a double and was delighted with it. Steve is friendly and professional and manages the breakfast schedule really well with pre-ordering and... More

We stayed at this fantastic B&B for 2 nights whilst visiting relatives. It was a great find on the internet and as you can never be sure what you are actually booking via the web; we can honestly say that it was as expected and more. We arrived late which was no trouble at all and even at such a... More

Hmmmm...checked out the Metropolitan on Trip Advisor, got great reviews and booked in. Not for me I'm afraid. Stephen met us at the front door in almost a hyper manic state. What followed was a checkin on amphetamines! The whole Hotel is monochrome, the wallpaper is like a giant barcode. Photographs are B&W, everything in the room is either back,... More

I stayed at The Metropolitan in Whitley Bay between July 19 and July 26. What a wonderful experience. There was a warm welcome, the room was spacious and spotlessly clean. There was even a bottle of water provided. There was plentiful supply of toiletries and hospitality tray was well stocked. The breakfast was cooked fresh and was magnificent did not... More

Stayed for one night as attending Weller gig in Tynemouth. Convenient for metro station, nice and clean and very enjoyable breakfast. Friendly hosts and the Indian opposite and just up the street serves a cracking balti. Beds I'm 6'6" had a great sleep.
