We have been coming to The Met since our son started Newcastle University in September 2012.The facilities and location are fantastic and Andrew and Stephen have become personal friends. They are so bright and cheerful and nothing is ever too much trouble. We like it so much that we will continue to come even though our son has now gratuated... More

A squeaky clean, comfortable guest house - fresh, minimalist decor throughout and good attention to detail. Although our room was small and the shower room tiny, we were able to have the windows open and never felt cramped. The breakfasts, cooked to individual order, were excellent - fresh and tasty with very good quality ingredients. Not your average seaside B&B... More

Were allowed to check in early as we had a wedding to prepare for. Lovely Rosie the cleaner showed us to our room. Room was very clean, nicely decorated, spacious and had all the amenities we required. Beds were really comfortable. Fantastic breakfast, brought to the table piping hot. I would highly recommend this B&B - one of the best... More

We stayed here before beginning our walk on the Hadrian's Wall path last month. Andrew and Stephen went out of their way to make us welcome and comfortable. Breakfasts were fresh and fabulous. Location very convenient to metro and to shops and restaurants. All great.

We stayed one night in early July. We stayed in a twin room. The room was nicely directed and clean. There was a good shower and the beds were comfortable. There are tea and coffee making facilities in the room. Breakfast in the morning was very very good. Great selection of fruit, cereals, pastries and a great cooked breakfast.

The Metropolitan looked nothing special from the outside but our impressions were transformed as soon as Stephen opened the door to a warm welcome and took our bikes to lock them away securely for the night. Our room was spacious and beautifully decorated, all the fittings were top quality and there was comprehensive guest information. Stephen recommended places to eat... More

From the outside it looks like just another guest house. But go inside and it has the air of a beautiful boutique hotel. Room was very comfortable with all the little extras that you get with someone who has attention to detail.

The Metropolitan was selected as the hotel of choice for myself and colleagues when working in the Newcastle area. And an absolutely fabulous alternative to the mainstream hotels in the area. Top rate customer service at half the price you would pay, say if you had been staying at The Village. You may not have a gym / pool, but... More

I've been working in the north-east for some time now, and have been staying at the Metropolitan. I can't praise it enough, The rooms are clean, and fully en-suite. They contain a TV and DVD player - very useful when both the weather and the broadcast TV are rubbish. This is an excellent guest house, and I have stayed in... More
