The Metropole is a lovely hotel. It had every amenity our group needed and the location is wonderful. The food is very good in the restaurant and bar and the service both at the front desk and the restaurants was exceptional. It was a very comfortable stay and I would recommend it to family and friends.

We usually stay at Rick Stein's but made a booking error so had no choice but the Metropole. Didn't have high expectations from reviews and they pretty much sum it up - old fashioned, tired and poor standard of finish. Breakfast just about acceptable. Staff try hard but hardly 4 star quality! All of these things I could put up... More

We booked a week at this lovely old hotel and we weren't disappointed. The room, although smaller than we'd have liked, was comfortable and spotlessly clean. At breakfast the service was very good and staff were friendly and pleasant. We enjoyed our evening drinks in the bar with wonderful views over the sea and harbour and the bar staff were... More

Great service and amazing food!! A little quiet to our surprise in height of season, we went on previous reviews that were good, the food was really delicious, there were 9 of us and wasn't a problem getting served all together and wasn't rushed or waiting too long I between , perfect service!!! Well recommended.

Having stayed in Padstow many times, and recently enjoyed a pleasant stay at a sister hotel in Torbay, we looked forward to staying at the Great Dame of Padstow. Sadly the hotel's great days of the early 20th century are long past. She is tired, out of date and misrepresented. The room was a standard and awful - dirty, hot,... More

Had a fabulous five night stay at this hotel with my mum, sister and fifteen year old niece. Was a little worried at some of the negative comments we had read before we arrived but didn't need to as we thought hotel was absolutely lovely. Extremely clean and all the staff were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble.... More

We have stayed here many times mainly because of the location, the views of which are faultless. Customer service is great and food is to die for however the hotel is long overdue refurbishment. The room we stayed in was fab for views because we paid the sea view supplement however I'm sad to say that the room it's self... More

we came from the continent and spent our Holiday in Devon and Cornwall. Unfortunately we didn't feel that the Hotel is a 4 star. Our room was under the roof with only a small roof window. We could hardly get any fresh air, the window in the bathroom could not be opened. The equipment rather old, no safe. Staff were... More

The Metropole was the absolute best place we could have had for out Wedding Reception! The staff were INCREDIBLE, friendly, nothing was too much to ask and they were very professional. The food was fantastic, and service was brilliant. We held out reception in the Estuary room which was fantastic, it meant every table had a beautiful view and it... More
