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.

Breakfasts were absolutely spot on and cooked to order. Plenty of cereals, juice, fruit, yoghurt and lashings of proper coffee. Well deserving of their many awards. Just a few minutes walk to the...

What a great welcome we received on arriving at the Metropolitan, all tired and bedraggled after 3 days in the saddle! We were a large group but our bikes were immediately locked away and we were quickly settled into our rooms. There was everything we could wish for in our rooms, which were also very clean and comfortable. The breakfasts... More

There is nothing at all missing to make us happy, and the breakfast was to die for. I couldn't do better myself. My daughter and grandson came with me from... More

The breakfast was lovely and very high quality (and my parents are veggies and a bit fussy).The owners even let our toddler (who wasn't staying there) join my parents for breakfast and they gave her a goody...
