Staff at breakfast pleasant and helpful unlike the... More

Meals were quite good. Had the fish of the day for dinner which was a good size meal and well cooked and served. Service was friendly and they got everything right. Omelette for breakfast which was a big meal, and had a bit too much chorizo in it for my liking, but was nice. Coffee was good, and a nice... More

We had the steak, wasn't a lot to choose from. And was no lunch specials on a Saturday. Expensive. Nice place, had a few gluten free options, however when I ordered I confirmed the chips were gf as per menu and chef said no. Would go again but needs more variety on menu.

We found this hotel very friendly with a good selection of food at reasonable prices. The only bad comment is that the pavement could do with a regular wash down, but that may be due to water restrictions in Townsville, so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.

My wife and I came into the metropole last week for breakfast and was so pleasantly surprised, the young girl Shannon was so attentive despite the fact it's was fairly busy, made a great coffee and still found time to chat about the things to do in Townsville. Great service! On top of that I had the best Eggs Benedict... More

On a recent trip up to townsville had my last meal at the Met. Rump with the Seafood Topper - absolutely amazing! Such a great price for the size of the meal. Service was fantastic. If you're on palmer st and want a good meal at a reasonable price, VISIT HERE! 10/10.

On a recent trip to Townsville I ate at the metropole twice. Both times the food was excellent. Steak perfectly cooked. Ribs were falling off the bone. Definitely good value. I will be back !!

We had daily breakfast pre-paid but staff didn't seem to know about it when we arrived. The buffet was a disgrace as there was only 2 pieces of white bread to toast and no offer to provide more options, one glass of orange juice left in the jug, tired, cold,overcooked bacon & eggs that looked like they had been served...

We recently visited the Metropole Hotel for lunch. There were only a couple of diners in the restaurant so we enjoyed a lovely lunch where we could talk and be heard without having to shout over the noise of other diners. This alone made it a very pleasant venue for dining. The staff were friendly and very helpful. We ordered... More
