Metropole Hotel
Ranked #4 of 8 Hotels in Padstow
Reviewed 23 January 2011

This is the 3rd time we have stayed in this cracking hotel. Ok its not had a fortune spent on maining into some chic contemporary hotel. But its excellent value for the very reasonable rates it requests. Unlike the overly priced, chic, trendy but unfriendly and pretentious cornwall hotel just outside St Austell. The Metropole is staffed by 'real' and genuine staff who are clearly happy in their job and ready with a smile. Its in an ideal location with an easy walk down to the harbour. I always prefer to fill my own breakfast from the buffet and pile my plate high, but their breakfast is more than adequate. This is a Hotel we intend to revisit time and time again over the next few years. If you want to spend your hard earned at a hotel that really values your custom and provide a quality service, unlike the pretentious cornwall hotel, and genuinely appreciates you then I highly recommened this cracking friendly hotel.

We were fortunate enough to be guests at a wonderful wedding reception held at the Metropole Hotel. The location is beautiful with stunning views across the Camel estuary and a short walk from Padstow harbour. The service that we received throughout our stay was excellent. Staff were friendly and polite and keen to please. The food was really enjoyable including the wedding breakfast and the full english breakfast the next morning.
My only complaint would be the excessive heat. I don't think I was the only guest that weekend to struggle with the radiators and end up sleeping with the bedroom windows wide open!
Despite this minor moan I would definitely recommend staying at the Metropole and definitely recommend being invited to a wedding reception being held there!

My wife and I visited the Metropole over New Year. We received excellent service from staff who were very sociable and keen to please. We will be back next New Year and may, if time allows, visit the hotel again during the rest of the year; Thank you for an enjoyable, relaxing break

I booked the hotel as a surprise 4 day break, and the staff made it really special, whatever you wanted wasn't a problem, they even put a table and chairs in the room so we could dine without leaving our dog, which was relaxing and intimate.

we arrived and were greeted by the reception manager - very nice girl, could not ask for a nicer welcome. we quickly given our room (104) and asked if we needed a hand with our cases.

the room itself was really big, a little old fashioned, but very nice. we ordered room service which came very quickly and was a good price. the only grumble was that we were on the bottom floor and there was noise of peopel walking up and down the stairs most of the night. apart from that is was great. only 3-5min walk from the town centre and free parking at the hotel.

overall, very good.

My wife and I have been visiting Cornwall at least once a year since 1991 and on many occasions visited Padstow, decreeing that one day we would stay at the 4* Hotel Metrople because of its position and reputation. The opportunity arose so we booked a 3-night stay. Car parking is a major problem in Padstow (and quite expensive) but the Metropole has ample free parking for residents. Our room was well heated, clean, tidy, with ample facilities and the beds were very comfortable. On the ground floor there is a 'Terrace Bar' and a separate restaurent, both with enormous picture windows overlooking the harbour and estuary of the River Camel. The food was as good as might be expected in an establishment such as this and the service was perfect, the staff could not do enough for its residents. Situated less than 5-minutes walk form the centre of Padstow, guests could have the best of both worlds by enjoying the food and drink of the hotel or sampling the many bars and restaurents of this charming seaside resort. The guidelines for writing reviews suggests stating what was liked best and least, but I cannot think of anything that I did not like at the Metropole, it was excellent, well worth a visit.
