After renting cottages in Padstow for twenty years we decided to stay first in Fowey, then at the Metropole and we were glad we did.
Don't be put off by the slightly austere looking exterior, nor the faded elegance of the interior. The hotel has the best site in Padstow and even has the rarity of free parking!
The staff were, without exception, very good. Our room was spacious and comfortable with views over the harbour and the estuary. The highlight though was the dining.
We have eaten at all the famous restaurants in Padstow and Rock on a regular basis. How we have missed the Metropole in our previous visits is a mystery to me. Beautifully presented, perfectly cooked food made with local fresh ingredients was the best we have ever had in the area.
There was one dish I didn't recognise on the menu and the waiter was able to describe not only what it was, but for how long it was marinaded and how it was cooked. Very impressive.
First class all round.
