“Excellent food”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

I booked this hotel last minute for the bank holiday weekend. The hotel is not perfect but the food is exceptional I was bowled over for three evenings and the menu changed every time. Fresh fish beautiful desserts just lovely. Padstow was packed and you could escape here for afternoon tea and watch the boats go by.

Stayed for a few days after the new year, fabulous food, wonderful views and lovely friendly staff, what more could you ask. Padstow is beautiful and this hotel is in the heart of the town and was the icing on the cake.

The views from the lounge are wonderful, could not think of a better place to relax with a cream tea or a nice bottle of wine and a book.

Room Tip: Room 6 , was amazing just for the views, large bay window over looking the estuary , with side windo...

We stayed at The Metropole for one night in may 14. You couldn't ask for a better location in padstow and unfortunately this was probably the best thing about the hotel. Rated as a 4 star it is so below many of the 4 star hotels we have stayed in. The hotel is very dated, reception not welcoming at all, dark very small rooms, no air conditioning, very stuffy hotel. However the room was clean and shower was good and breakfast was nice. Would not want to stay here for more than 1 night as felt I was in an old peoples home.

This is a really lovely hotel. The staff are on the ball and work with you to ensure you have a great time there. The dining room is wonderful, good atmosphere, food that reflects the area with sensitive and delicate flavours, brilliant ambience and views that are beautiful. Rooms well equipped, clean and comfortable. Holiday atmosphere and sophistication rolled into one. We go there as often as we can and just relax.

Room Tip: Room 29. Has a balcony and sea views.

We have stayed at this hotel a few times and for the first time ever we had a few problems with the room. We told reception and within 30 minutes the maintenance man had rectified the problems and we were given a complementary bottle of wine. The food as always was brilliant and overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

I don't know whether our stay clashed with a SAGA bank holiday offer but most of the guests were over 70. There seemed to be a big gap between the old and the younger families here. The hotel service is good and the staff were great with our 6 year old. I think most older guests were on half board as restaurant not a comfortable atmosphere for a young family, even with a well behaved little girl. In fact some of the older/harder hearing people were louder but it didn't stop the glares from some. One night dining in was enough for us. Besides there is so much choice elsewhere. Rooms were comfortable if a little old fashioned in decor. Don't think it's necessarily tired it's just that I think the taste caters for an older clientele, particularly the lounge areas. Felt like a nursing home. It's 5 minutes from the harbour area so the location is hard to beat, without getting too noisy. Views can't be beaten. Overall if you're needing a great central base then I can recommend this hotel but not if you've got noisy kids you don't want to gag all of the time!

Cornwall has some of the most beautiful scenery in the whole of England. Padstow itself is a bustling town on the Estuary of the river Camel.
The hotel is in a superb position and only a 2 min walk from Rick Steins Seafood Restaurant.
The Hotel staff were excellent and the prices were mostly reasonable.
The food was of a high standard with a good wine list.
Room 26 has a double aspect with a balcony but is a little on the small side as is the bathroom.
