I spent two nights here with a friend. Staff were friendly and efficient but the fixtures and fittings quite dated and tatty. I enjoyed the service at breakfast and the views! and the heated pool was a real treat as it felt like the Caribbean and was protected from the wind. The location was superb and it took us 2... More

Spent two days and nights here. Very convenient for the shops and restaurants and free parking. Hotel is looking a little tired, however the rooms were very nice, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very tasty with lots of options. The service was very good and we never had to wait long for anything we ordered. I had a very nice... More

Stayed for two nights, b,b & d to celebrate my wifes birthday . Room was old and shabby, in need of a good clean. A long dusty cobweb was hanging from the ceiling to greet us. This was removed the following day by the cleaner. The only saving grace was the restaurant and location. However any hotel cannot live off... More

The Metropole stands tall as a landmark in Padstow overlooking the estuary and it is easy to drive past and waste much time looking for parking and accommodation in the heart of the town. How pleased we were to have turned into their car park and discovered within this once 'railway hotel' a delightful blend of tradition and hospitality with... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. Our room was clean, extremely comfortable and well equipped with a sitting area and the most wonderful views of the estuary and harbour. The bathroom also had a bath and the walk in shower we need. The hotel's public areas were spotlessly clean. We only had breakfast in the hotel which was freshly cooked to... More

Just returned from a walking holiday, staying at The Metropole. As a single traveller it's important to feel welcomed and safe. All the staff were extremely friendly and efficient. The breakfast experience was very good and they always endeavoured to sit me on a window table overlooking the estuary. The location is superb and very handy for the south coastal... More

After visiting Padstow yearly for decades & always admiring the hotel, we treated ourselves to one night before returning home after a long weekend in Cornwall. We were not disappointed. Sadly as we booked last minute we could not have a room with a seaview, but the room we had was clean & comfortable with all the usual little extras,... More

This hotel has a great history, fantastic location, but the experience is bland. There is always a shortage of places to stay at peak times and I guess the company trade on that, shame really as It could be a gem of a place. Getting shabby round the edges, needs a revamp and someone who has some flair to run... More

We have just returned from a few days in Padstow staying at the Metropole. This was our third stay at this hotel. The place is very pleasant and we had a room overlooking the estuary which is beautiful. The hotel is right next to Rick Stein's restaurant but that is not the best thing about the Metropole. The best part... More
