“Metro Premier Inn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

Friendly staff, couldn't have been more helpful. We had bikes and it was no problem.
Hotel isn't in easy walking distance of anywhere except the cycle route which is very close by.
Dining options in walking distance are limited and we didn't enjoy the Taybarn for dinner but breakfast was good.

We had a tiring day travelling up to Newcastle and then went around the metro centre, the hotel was only a mile away and was a great relaxing finish to the day also the Taybarns restaurant was brilliant with the varied menu.

Got there at 9pm and had a very warm welcome, being Halloween the staff were taking part and offered treats. Huge room that was up to the usual premier standard, very clean.
Room had secondary glazing which was excellent to block out the road noise, it also acted as a good wine cooler !
The shower was over the bath and was not too powerful but that was the only disappointment.
The lift is also the slowest ever to go up just 2 floors.
The Tay barn next door for food was great value at £7.99 for the meal eat as much as you like, and £6.99 for a bottle of blossom hill wine.
Really nice breakfast well cooked and the staff were even better.
This would be great to stay for a shopping trip at the Metro.

Decided to visit The metro shopping centre booked an overnight stay at the premier inn only 5 minutes drive from centre ideally situated and an nice place to stay for a short visit
As with most premier inns it does what it says on the tin decent bed and bathroom for a night or two.
Would recommend if visiting metro centre and will return

Room Tip: Room at back road can at times be noisy

Stayed for 2 nights. Ideal for Metro Centre, although not an easy walk from hotel, especially if wet and dark. However, it's as close as other hotels and it's also easy to get to city centre via an excellent bus service from Metro Centre. Hotel is a little tired in places compared to other Premier Inns we have stayed at, and we had a couple maintenance issues in our room. That said, the staff were outstanding and really cared about the customers. The restaurant next door was very good value for money as their all you can eat Buffett was £8.99 each (£5.99 midweek) but it was a bit like a canteen at times, but staff were excellent. TGI Fridays was just a short walk and superb. Overall this was a good stay and I would recommend the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms at the back.

Really Nice Hotel, right near Metrocentre and easy to reach off A1, excellent staff very friendly with welcomes every time you enter reception or bump into them anywhere in the hotel, rooms were spotless and it was very quiet considering it was close to main road as mention earlier. Breakfast was excellent - loads to choose from, this is served in the Taybarns Restaurant, attached/next door, this was also spotless. Plenty of off road parking.

Good hotel, friendly staff and great rooms. Very comfortable and quiet considering very close to the road. Handy for the Metro Centre and Metro Arena. The lovely lady on reception even drew us a map and directions on how to get to the Arena as we hadn't been before. Didn't use the restaurant but who wouldn't like an all you can eat buffet on site!
