“Lovely hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

We booked this hotel because of its locality in Padstow. We stayed for two nights to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary.
It's a lovely, elegant hotel. It's got all of its original features from when it was built over 100 years ago.
We stayed a sea view room, which was huge, very clean and nicely furnished. The ensuite had a bath and a separate shower, again very clean. To welcome us there was a bottle of prosecco and a card from the staff, which was a lovely touch.
Reception staff were very friendly, especially, Emma, as were the waiting staff in the dining room. The breakfasts had lots of choice, pastries, fruit, cold meat, cheese, cereals, while the hot choices were cooked fresh and were very enjoyable.
I would not hesitate to return, hopefully soon.

Just come back from a short break at the Metropole to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We booked with two friends and had a simply fabulous time, going out to Rick Stein's Seafood Restaurant for a fantastic meal.

Room Tip: If you can afford it go for a sea/river facing Premier Double Room.

We arrived here off the cuff and we stayed in room 31 which was a superior sea view room. Great view and nice balcony with table and chairs. Well appointed but the bath panel had been damaged which for a 4* hotel ought to have been fixed before the room was used. The hotel wifi was temperamental at best but to be fair to the hotel, neither of these issues merited a complaint. We ate out so I am unable to comment on the restaurant. Breakfast was very nice with a varied selection and served well by the breakfast staff.
I, like a few others feel like the hotel could do with a bit of tlc to bring it up to the standard expected of a 4* hotel.
A special mention about the reception desk staff and the barman who served us our complimentary drink on arrival. It really is nice to speak to pleasant, professional and helpful people like yourselves. You are a credit to the hotel.
Both my wife and I would be happy to stay here again.

Thank you for taking the time to post your review.

I am pleased there were so many areas that you enjoyed about your stay and I will of course pass on your thanks to the teams here. The staff really are such an asset and they work tirelessly to ensure all our guests have the best possible stay.

The hotel is ungoing a program of refurbishment and although it wont be a quick fix, we are doing as much as we can during this busy time but I hope you may return so you can see the improvements we are making.

Many thanks and kind regards

Took my mother for Sunday lunch today for her birthday. What a fabulous little hotel. Smiley service, lovely lunch and atmosphere from an unobtrusive jazz duo and gorgeous views. It isn't for the stripped floors and seaside stripes crowd (which is being done to death in Cornwall) but this is old fashioned comfort. I like it!

This was our second visit and not disappointed. Staff are so friendly and helpful. Meals and breakfast were of a high standard and reasonably priced for a 4star hotel. Only small criticism is the broadband is extremely slow and unreliable . Will definitely be back for next year
