I received this experience as a gift and have to say that The Metro was an excellent choice. Everthing about the establishment was without fault from the really friendly staff to the standard of the rooms and public areas. We had afternoon tea, evening meal and breakfast, all of which were excellent. I would particularly like to mention Amanda, the... More

The Metro is beautifully decorated inside. The room was extremely clean - the ensuite was lovely. We cant fault it. Placed near to shopping and restaurants area. The area around the hotel is slightly rundown but appears to be having some buildings renovated. But not a problem as so lovely inside. Stayed with my sister for a spa and hotel... More

Had a groupon voucher for afternoon tea. Very nice - lovely sandwiches and cakes. Tea was refillable although we were forgotten about for a while and had to wait for a top up. Overall, good value for money with the voucher at £9.95 for two people. I'm not sure what the value of afternoon tea is without the voucher but... More

Our stay at the metro was inclusive of a deal with groupon following a spa day at Portland hall spa. Normally with these kind of deals something is lacking to make up for the price of the voucher..this however was not the case at the metro! As soon as we arrived we were greeted by really attentive , polite staff... More

My partner and I had afternoon tea here on 30.05.15. Upon arrival we waited around 10 minutes to be served, despite being the first ones at the bar (seems the locals get served first). We then sat at a table until being moved into the area for afternoon tea. This was served on a one tier platter for 2 people... More

Wow, what can I say I am speechless not long finished from staying at The Metro (22-24th) this hotel is absolutely beautiful inside and out. Attentive staff throughout our stay :) Room was lovely, spacious and very nice decor! Food was divine, only tried breakfast but was cooked to perfection on both occasions. Parking was provided by staff once we... More

My husband & I were invited to have afternoon tea with a couple of friends. We had some lovely well filled sandwiches, that were very fresh & tasty. There were fruit scones filled with cream & jam, little shortbread cakes filled with cream & topped with a raspberry & a mini piece of chocolate tart also topped with a raspberry.... More

Went on Sunday for afternoon tea as it was a treat from my daughter. Very poor value for money. It was advertised as half price which to me means you get the value of the full prices item for half price. Everyone likes a bargain. No way. Served on a 2-tier cake stand. An assortment of finger sandwiches egg mayo,... More

We spent a weekend away at this hotel and had a lovely time here, especially when we booked it through Wowcher so it wasn't that expensive. We'd booked in for a two night stay but when we eventually got there after work there had practically been a search party out looking for us, they'd emailed, rung several times (even though... More
