I have been visiting Padstow since 1960 and watched England beat Portugal in 1966 to reach the World Cup Final and Neil Armstrong land on the moon in 1969 in the Metropole's TV lounge but never stayed here. Over the years the hotel has looked more and more dated from the outside so it was with certain reservations we decided...

We stayed two nights on December 1st and 2nd, 2016 for the Padstow Food Festival. We were impressed with the staff from the moment we arrived, who were friendly and helpful throughout our stay. Soon after we checked into our room, the phone rang, and it was one of the receptionists calling to ask if all was OK. This is...

We stayed here a few weeks ago for the murder mystery weekend as we thought it sounded fun. And it was! We had a lovely couple of nights. We upgraded our room and had a lovely sea view room on the top floor. The bathroom was lovely with a separate bath and shower and the bed was a super king...

My visit this time was a much better experience than last time. We were allocated a "Garden Room" which was larger and a lot quieter than our previous experience in rooms higher in the building. It also has a pleasant outlook over the estuary to the village of Rock. We were attending a private function so I cannot comment on...

Spent 2 nights at this hotel. Old hotel built in the early 1900's. Nice ambience and warm Christmassy public rooms. Reception staff friendly. Lovely view from dining/ lounge area. We have stayed before paying twice as much and definitely not worth the full cost on its website. However, on a deal seemed reasonable given the location. 5 minute easy walk...

The whole hotel is in need of refurbishment. Reception area very shabby - threadbare carpet, peeling paint work and faded wallpaper. Sadly this theme continues throughout. Our room very small and cramped. Mattress soft and lumpy. The bed was adorned with a couple of dirty cushions. Our room was above the kitchens. We could hear music from below plus the...

An enjoyable 2 night stay at this lovely hotel, our small allocated room was altered by Emma the Reception Manager and this made a very big difference to our stay and to this report. This lady together with all the reception staff were pleasant and helpful. The dinner menu had improved since our last visit ,with more traditional food which...

We held an evening event at the hotel for 65 people. Most of the party stopped over that night and several over 2 days. The staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. The food in the Harbour Restaurant was also excellent. Well done to you all.

We stayed here for one night as a anniversary treat. They upgraded up at a reduced price to a sea view room and it was lovely ( room 42).
