My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night as we were attending a party in nearby Cullercoats.
I would agree with previous reviews - we received a very warm welcome, and the little bag containing banana and walnut muffins in our room was a nice extra touch (in addition to good biscuits, tea and coffee etc....) The bed was comfortable and the breakfast delicious - as well as the high-quality "Full English" they offer a homemade kedgeree or kipper pate.
Although the decor wasn't really to our taste, others would (and clearly do) love it - Newcastle Utd fans would be especially delighted I imagine, since the whole place is black and white (monochrome probably sounds more on-trend!)
So in summary - although I wouldn't personally choose such a modern look, the Metropolitan ticks all the boxes - it is an immaculately clean, comfortable, and very friendly base for a stay in the area. (And judging by the tales of woe other guests at the party were coming out with, this is definitely the BEST place to stay in the area!More
