The Metropolitan is a super b&b. My friend & I would definitely stay here again. Everything was splendid! The owners are so nice, nothing was too much trouble. The bedroom was spacious & spotlessly clean, the bed was comfy, the tea & coffee facilities/variety was most impressive - haha. Wee touches like bottled water & ear buds were appreciated. You...

We stayed here overnight at the beginning of May. The staff were welcoming and helpful. The family room was comfortable, spacious and well equipped and the breakfasts were excellent. We were impressed by the overall quality and attention to detail and would certainly stay here again if we were in the area.

We stayed here before cycling the C2C route and were delighted with the accommodation. We were able to store our bikes here and there was on road parking so we were able to leave the car. The room was very clean, comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was cooked to order and was delicious. Highly recommended.
