Immaculate. Free parking for a week as we did the coastal to coast. Great Italian - Davanti - to top up the energy banks before embarking on our cycling odyssey! Great beds, beautiful breakfast (I chose the smoked kipper pate but the full English was a treat for the hubbie), warm welcome. What more do you want.

What a lovely welcome we had on arrival at the Metropolitan. Nothing was too much trouble for Steve, the Proprietor. The hotel was spotlessly clean throughout. The attention to detail was excellent. There were a selection of well presented toiletries - .well beyond what one normally expect. The room was well presented and had a good selection of teas, coffee... More

Annual visit to The Metropolitan for the Great North Run. Friendly welcome as always and Stephen could not have been more flexible and helpful when it came to early breakfasts. Only 12 months before next visit.

The room was tastefully decorated although a little cramped for two people and the bathroom was even more cramped, good points were the facilities, tea making, biscuits, water and nice... More

Travelled with a party of five for a football match at St James Park and spent the night here. The owner couldn't have been more helpful and the rooms and breakfast were as good as I've had at any five star hotel. Highly recommend this place.

We had an overnight stay at The Metropolitan and it surpassed our expectations. Street parking was readily available and the staff were welcoming. The inside of the building has been completely modernised with great attention to detail. The rooms are spacious and while the bathroom is very small it is very functional. Breakfast is served in the ground floor breakfast... More

firstly great staff great breakfast. downside the toilet: in room 3 it was really too small and badly situated : a larger person would struggle to fit! the view of the derelict house in the back lane not great and sorry but the wifi was almost non-existant. not really top dollar as the price would suggest

The place was very clean.. However the Internet connection signal was weak and we had to use it in the breakfast room and the shower continuously clogged up where you had to repeatedly flush the toilet to get the shower to drain Otherwise ok.
