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

This is an excellent guest house and I am not surprised it has won awards. Freshly refurbished, clean, quiet and comfortable and with a GREAT breakfast, what else could one ask for in a B and B? I HIGHLY record mend this B and B if you are looking for somewhere really nice and great value in Whitey Bay.

Decent B&B, very nice and clean, with an interesting Art Deco-style approach to furnishings and decor. Excellent choice for breakfast, all freshly cooked to order. Parking is a bit limited, but its within walking distance of everything you need (Whitley Bay IS only a small place anyway).

Only a flying visit but would return. Beautifully decorated and furnished with a fully stocked room. Very friendly staff and great choice for breakfast. Excellent location for access to sea front and Metro.
