We had a junior suite with balcony overlooking the bay and gardens. It was very nice, perhaps a little noisy as it was close to the main road, which is busy at night time. Great breakfast. Wonderful location, close to the town and seafront. Staff very helpful

This was my fourth visit to the Metropole and I hope to return again and again. The staff as always was very kind, patient and most accommodating. By now I know just about all of the staff personnel by first name. The weather this year was quite mild and I spent many hours of enjoyment taking my afternoon drinks on the terrace overlooking the beautifully manicured gardens which lead directly to the sea. It is difficult for me to imagine a more pleasant venue.

Room Tip: My rooms were overlooking the garden with a view of the sea. The view was quite lovely and the rooms...

The location was perfect, the view was great, the price was very good, but would probably not go back. Like another reviewer, I disliked the wait staff and some of the front desk personnel. They both seemed very stressed - which I thought strange, as not much was going on, so the pressures must have come from their supervisors. The man in charge during the morning buffet seemed in a bad mood and was sort of slamming things around as though something was out of place - which it appeared not to be. As for communication - the hotel uses an outside booking service and so there is no direct communication with the hotel, and they never answered any of my emails.

Great hotel ontop of the hill on the main street of Santa Margherita, great room with a balcony with a fantastic view of the water, room was very spacious with the most friendliest staff I have ever encountered.

I had experienced difficulties with our hirecar, Anna organised everything for us with the car rental company, could not recommend this hotel higly enough you will not regret it.

This was a great hotel close to the train station and within easy walking distance to everything we needed. We walked to Portofino from Santa Margherita. We had a wonderful view from our room. Really enjoyed our stay.

Stayed two nights with a group traveling from the States and it was fabulous! View from our room was awesome, definitely would stay here again! Close to shopping center where we picked up dinner and brought back to room, wonderful!

We booked this partly due to its location near the train station as we planned some day trips to Cinque Terre and Portofino. We ended up taking a taxi when arriving as we weren't sure exactly where the hotel was and we were tired. We also took a taxi when leaving as there was a large hill to go up and I was pregnant at the time and we had luggage. It is certainly walkable, though. We walked to the ferry to Portofino easily and the hotel was helpful in giving us information on the ferry. Our rooms were a little dated and the beds were quite hard. They did not have the AC turned on yet when we were there, so we had to sleep with the windows open and it was noisy. Would probably look elsewhere if returning.
