The Metro is well worth staying in. Great location. Friendly, helpful staff, whatever their role. Good quality modern throughout - in the public areas and in our room. All you need for a very short break as we had or a longer holiday. In room 4...Comfy bed and pillows, bottled water, tea, coffee etc. Good TV. Only one chair though.... More

Our room was fantastic; modern and sleek yet comfortable. We used all the teabags in our room and asked a staff member for a couple more, he couldn't have been more helpful - darted downstairs and reappeared quickly with teabags, coffee sachets and fresh shortbread biscuits. The outdoor garden is stunning and we felt at ease in our casual clothes... More

Tastefully decorated throughout and rooms very light ,airy and completely spotless. The hotel staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble.

We stayed in the room above the front gardens,, gorgeous views and very soothing as the fountains were on all night,, 1 out of 4 of the towels were marked but that was all,, very comfortable beds and adequate sized room, good value for money however the breakfast was disappointing for £7pp. Overall a great overnight stay
