Nowadays there is no point expecting to find a smart classy hotel in Whitley Bay. Much better to look for a B&B with good reviews, which is how I found the Metropolitan. There is nothing to fault in this excellent B&B. The tasteful monochrome theme to the decoration is consistently elegant. The initial impression of immaculate cleanliness is entirely accurate; you would be hard pressed to find a speck of dust anywhere. The breakfast menu is more than adequate, with choices from the 'full English',to elegantly presented smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. Our bedroom was comfortable, and although the en suite shower room was small (carved out of a corner of the room), the double width shower and good supply of toiletries made up for that. The position of the house is convenient, with the sea-front a minute away in one direction and the Metro station two minutes away in the other. Although Whitley Bay itself is a bit run down these days, that does not detract from the beautiful beach and promenade walks. An especially nice surprise comes from turning southwards and walking into Cullercoats where the beach and seafront are as lovely and much smarter. In spite of it being a bit past its best, there are good places to eat in Whitley Bay. Stephen your host at the Metropolitan has reliable recommendations. To sum up, the Metropolitan is as comfortable as many a four or five star hotel, and more welcoming than most. Don't hesitate!
