We booked in for one night and had requested a king size bed, only on the upper floors apparently. Anyway Ebony booked us in and the room was lovely, spotlessly clean, however the WiFi wasn't working. When we mentioned it to her when we returned from dinner she offered to move us to a lower floor with different bed configuration... More

Thank you for that lovely review. Good to see our facilities and standard meet your expectation but more than that is always gratifying to hear positive comments on the service. Though it is all of course all part of the job and what we aim for everyday, all staff always appreciate a 'mention in dispatches' and i thank you for... More

Picked this hotel for location right nest door to the civic centre. Room was very clean, beds comfy, room service was ok, not much for kids to choose from, but food was amazing. Bathroom clean, location perfect for us, quiet. Checking in and out no hassles, staff very friendly.

This was an unexpected stopover and was booked by phone based on a quick Trip Advisor report. Pretty simple check in and the room was clean and up to scratch. The tariff at $130 was good value and I had a quite acceptable dinner in the restaurant. I would definitely stay there again.

Called in to the Metro after a 15 hour day travelling home. Staff were very efficient and accomodating as we arrived after 10pm. Check in was fast and the room was clean and to a high standard with block out curtains which we appreciated having a 15 month old. Great nights sleep and a filling breakfast in the morning enabling... More

Whilst a bit older establishment the International ticks all these nicely . I'd had a long day driving over 700kms,... More

My apologies for the confusion regarding your stay. There was indeed an error made in your rooms bedding subsequent to the clearing out and spring cleaning of the rooms on that floor - and it was one that we were only made aware of through your feedback. Regarding breakfast I'm pleased that we were still prepared to offer the option... More

My wife and I have stayed several times at the Ipswich Metro. We enjoyed it very much. We took friends back there, even though other friends wonder why we would want to stay in Ipswich. We also enjoyed the Platform 9 restaurant there where we had at times dinner and breakfast. Great atmosphere, great food. Recently we tried to book... More

Hi Jeff. Thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback, its always hugely disappointing to hear when a simple thing ends up impacting a guest perception so dramatically and of course I apologise for that. It would seem all the confusion and distress originated from the lack of your history in the system and an inabiliy to communicate and... More
