“A Wonderful Weekend”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

Liked almost everything about Llandrindod Wells - the people, the quirky shops and the area in general. The only dislike was a lack of womenswear shops! However, everything else far outweighed this slight disappointment...........Great place to visit

“Good Well Cooked Food”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

We ate at The Radnor Restaurant for the three evenings we stayed at The Metropole. Our only negative comment would be that we found the menu a little limited.

On the three nights we ate in the restaurant it was very busy, with several coach parties and conferences with very few tables spare. We did not have to wait long on any evening to be shown to our table. We waited just the right length of time between our courses. The food was of an excellent quality, well prepared and cooked and was in the case of The Excellent Fillet Steak cooked as required.

The staff all appeared happy in their jobs (sadly a rare occurrence these days) and were a credit to the Metropole and its Management. They were happy when asked to arrange drinks from the bar (Spencers) although we preferred to get our own.

We are already looking forward to our next visit

“Still Hungry!!!”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

Group of 6 adults aged 30-45 and half of the group left still hungry after a 3 course meal. A group of thirsty punters arrived and felt like we were in a church group, as we spend the first 30 mins drinking water and eating bread!!! eventually alcohol arrived, although the wine choice we made ran out after 2 bottles, in a hotel that could cater for hundreds at a time between function rooms and restaurant, this was quite disapointing.
Most of the group enjoyed the starters of Soup, Sea Bream and the asparagus, although not much asparagus in that particular starter more lettuce but tasty all the same. Mains mostly consisted of Fillet steak (purely due to poor choice on menu, 2 fish, 2 vegi and fillet were the options) all enjoyed the steak and it was very tasty although no-one had it cooked as requested all one step overdone (e.g. med/rare was med. etc) and the cod and pork belly dish was quite a disapointment with the so called pork belly just being a piece of pork. The overall size of the meals was a big disapointment, definately needed desert to try and fill up. Deserts were delicous, although a comment was made that the cheese board had more on the plate than the main meal! all in all for £30 ish a head for 3 courses it was a very tasty meal, but very very al a carte and having been to michelin starred restaurants and been full the protions were very disapointing. Service wasn't great either although once a large group vacated it did improve, perhaps they should have mentioned this when booking, we would have happily left it half hour later. very hotel feeling to the service rather than restaurant. and being served horse radish sauce onto my plate for me made it feel a little like an old peoples home. Would have also been nice if we had been asked at any point during meal if everything was ok!! Probably wont go back although would perhaps try a bar meal in the hotel front bar, what a great place that was to enjoy after dinner drinks with friends.

“Not all that”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Think it's all very posh but it's out of touch with modern people, and the food isn't all that.. And service wasn't brilliant either, but as half our party was over 75 which is the average age of the place.. It wasnt outer cup of tea, won't be going back

“A lovely lunch at the Metropole.”
Reviewed October 3, 2012 via mobile

50 of my colleagues and I stayed at the Metropole for a seminar. The lunch was perfect - an excellent choice of hot and cold foods, good vegetarian options, and the staff were very polite and helpful - and not too 'heavy'.

The conference facilities were also very good.
