I stayed in the Metropolitan for 2 nights this week 14-16th April. On arrival, was able to park directly outside. I was met at the door and shown up Tony room. Room 2. Lovely room with 2 single beds in. Tea and coffee facilities. Complimentary bottles of water. The decor was very clean and simple but still stylish. The bathroom was small but had everything you need in there. Nice big TV on the wall and a separate DVD player. Good quality soap and shower gel. A really useful box in the bathroom containing cotton buds, cotton wool and a shower cap. Lovely soft fluffy towels.
The bed was comfortable and I like the simple white cover with a little throw at the bottom. Wifi was good. 8mbs. May not be much for some but it is much better than I'm used to at home.
It was lovely and quiet in the road outside, and more so at the back where I was.
Breakfast was plentiful. I didn't opt for the cooked breakfast but I saw what other people had and it looked really tasty and beautifully presented.
Excellent choice if cereals, fresh fruit, pastries , yogurts, and juices. Tea or coffee was served in individual pots. The dining room followed the theme in the hotel and was light and airy.
I have family locally so this is an ideal place to base myself when I come up to visit.
A lovely stay and would definitely stay again.
My only negative points are ( and I'm sure this can be remedied) . I had 2 windows in my room and they were big windows. Unfortunately these windows look directly into the bedrooms of the hotel next door. Consequently I kept my curtains closed all of the time( putting my make up on in unnatural light) . A frosted /opaque cover on the glass would remedy that. I sleep with my window open, so I heard sound from the kitchen downstairs from around 6am and could smell food being cooked. Most of the time. These are the only slightly negative points I wish to raise.
Otherwise, a lovely stay.
