“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2014

In our hotel. Good service and good food. The fresh crab sandwiches are very good, particularly with a large glass of Shiraz!

Had a gorgeous afternoon tea here overlooking Padstow Harbour. Excellent value, home made chocolate muffins and delicious selection of homemade biscuits. A must!

“Great view but mediocre food and service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2014

A very dated and shabby hotel which could do with a super refurbishment, as it borders on depressing. The food is all right, overpriced though, and the staff always look as if the end of the world is nigh. Great view and the coffee is good but I wouldn't eat here again.

Have been coming here for years. Perfect lounge with the best view in Padstow. Great food & great coffee (served with Rick Stein biscuits). Highly recommend

“Great estuary and harbour views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2013

Pleasant escape to the quiet Victorian hotel setting.

We stayed for two nights in the hotel and the food was outstandingly good. We were surprised at the quality of the food and the presentation, the chef has been there for ten years and we hope that he never leaves. Some restaurants in Padstow and Rock are very expensive but the Metropole is surprisingly reasonable with some of the best food we have eaten anywhere, the duo of pork was exceptional!
