Very helpful from the moment we booked, secure cycle storage. A really comfortable stay in a spotlessly clean and smart B&B. We loved the décor. Excellent breakfast, lots of variety and especially delicious bacon. If you need an evening meal, there are lots of restaurants within a few minutes' walk. We ate at a really good Italian restaurant on the... More

We visited as a couple at the start and end of the Coast & Castles cycle ride (2 nights). Great breakfast and fantastic room and Steven was very helpful. Cycles were placed in secure storage overnight. We would recommend for cyclists passing through.

The Metropolitan has been beautifully and tastefully decorated. Steve was the perfect host and our room was all that we could have asked for. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty and we would recommend The Metropolitan to everyone.

Thoroughly recommend this hotel. Small and welcoming establishment, beautifully clean comfortable and modern. 5 minute walk to some very good restaurants, 2 minute walk to the seafront. Make sure you have the full breakfast. Will definitely come back.

Stayed one night during a short break in Northumberland. The Metropolitan is best described as a boutique B&B rather than a hotel. Parking is on the street outside, but was a little way from the nearest space. The owners were friendly and made some good suggestions about local restaurants. Stayed in the room at the top of the house (4... More

We arrived on a Friday night to a very polite and happy Steve, who took the time to say hi and introduce himself to our 4year old and 2 year olds as well instead of ignoring them as some people would. We were then shown to our room. We stopped in room 4 which is huge! More than big enough... More

This hotel is ideally located and came with a good reputation and didn't disappoint. Andrew and Steve have clearly taken a lot of trouble with the coordinated decor throughout and the room are clean and fresh. Free Wi-Fi (although the signal is variable) and an excellent breakfast with all the standard fare plus a selection of hot items cooked to... More

What a great find! A straight line walk from the metro/train station, then further on at the bottom of the road is the beautiful beach, can't want for anything more. Surrounded by a good choice of restaurants and an easy 2 min walk to the town centre. The property is spotlessly clean and Steve and his staff word hard to... More
