My wife and I spent 3 nights in the Metropole Guesthouse in January 2015. The building has been there as a guest house since the early 1930s, so don't expect it to be overflowing with all the mod cons. It is a typical guesthouse from the last century; the rooms are small, though the bathroom in our room was quite... More

We stayed for one night over the weekend however did not have any meals at the Metropole. Walking through the front door is like stepping back into yesteryear. The decor is obviously 1930's and appears to be well maintained. The rooms were clean, comfortable & quiet (we were positioned at the side of the building) and we had no trouble... More

We had booked this hotel for one of my older friend who came after a long time. His parents were also with him. We were looking for a place convenient to reach and enjoyable for them too. This Guest house is located next to the Katoomba railway station that was very convenient for them. This property is designed like a... More

This hotel was in a fabulous location just next to Katoomba train station. Our room was at the front end of the hotel so loud trains kept me awake until midnight. I paid an extra $10 for a cot and I was given a portable folding cot, not a proper cot. There are tea making facilities in the room with... More

We opted for the coupon deal - and stayed for 5 nights. Wished we hadn't. Although the hotel has the best location opposite the railway station - we heard every train during the night. Goods trains shunting, & crossing the points every night. Ear plugs helped. The bedroom was sad, and a bit dirty. Lounges looked pretty but 70 years... More

We stayed at the Metropole in August 2014 as an extended family Yulefest. We were given keys to a room with a double bunk for twins and a dangerously placed fan directly above the bed. The bunk had no rails for either child and our 3rd child was expected to lie on the floor on a sad excuse for a... More

Went on a Scoopon deal. Good enough for one night, nothing special. Many of the inclusions promised with the deal were missing. We asked for them and they did deliver, but no the greatest. Good central location with plenty of food options nearby.

My wife and I decided we would like a romantic mountains getaway earlier this year before she headed off overseas on a trip for her university. After looking up some places and looking at the pictures the Metropole had promise. Sadly the promise did not live up to expectation. Now to be fair, the Metropole itself is nicely located almost...

Shared four bedroom family room with four others, ground floor, bedrooms good, table for eating quite small and nowhere to cook. Lounge room small, bathroom huge, but unfortunately toilet is located in bathroom. Very clean and serviced with towels. No air conditioning so could be very hot during summer, facilities nice, did not eat as very close to restaurants, main... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at The Metropole Guesthouse during our trip. We looked a lot online at hotels and places to stay, we actually decided to go with The Metropole Guesthouse after reading several good reviews along with finding the Groupon deal online. The Groupon deal really made the stay very affordable. It was a packaged deal and we... More
