Metropole Hotel

Only spent one night at The Metropole but was pleasantly surprised by great service, decor, overall comfort, spa and the delicious 6 course taster menu. We went for a birthday celebration and felt suitably pampered. Checked in 5 hours early which made our 5 hour walk a little more achievable followed by a swim, sauna steam and long soak in the jacuzzi.
The walk to Shakey Bridge via the Woodland walk was wonderful and made the 6 courses all the more enjoyable. Wish we had booked for 2 nights.

From the efficient and welcoming check in to the comfortable room, excellent dinner and great spa facilities, this hotel and our stay has been more than very good. The mellow and comfortably designed coffee shop/brasserie was a lovely place to take coffee/drinks on a cold, winters eve and the staff very helpful. We enjoyed the wintry walk around town and - if anything could be tweaked - it would be good to have the brief 'history of Llandrindod Wells' booklet availabe and on display rather than in a drawer behind reception - but happily given to us when we asked.

It is very rare that you would come across a hotel or any business that has been in the same Family for a 100 years and this is one of them!

The staff were pleasant, polite and courteous! The Spa was a bonus and quite adequate and the Food was suprisingly to a high standard too!

All in all, it was very enjoyable and I would not hesitate to recommend The Metropole Hotel to anyone!

Room Tip: Our Executive Room was very spacious as was the Bathroom too but our Room was rear facing, not brill...

Stayed at The Metropole for the Welsh Association of Motor Clubs annual Awards Evening on January 28
On arrival Amy in reception gave us a wonderful welcome
and had us registered and we settled into our room very quickly
The room and bed was very comfortable.
The meal we had was first class, very tastefull and hot considering there was 250 at the function. The staff were wonderful in serving the food very quickly.
The service given by the staff we have just got to back for a break on our own and not as part of a function

My wife and I have just returned from a one night stay. We were fortunate enough to have been upgraded to a tower room on arrival, and we continued to be impressed by this hotel and it's staff throughout our stay.

I very rarely leave feedback, but I think this place deserves it. The food was excellent, in particular the breakfast.

We were impressed by the pool, and wife raved about the treatments she had at the spa.

In short, I recommend this place wholeheartedly, and hope to return soon.

Completely forgot to write a review for this wonderful hotel. We stayed in Aug 2010 for a weekend deal on Travelzoo, and we've always wanted to return. Wonderful hotel, fantastic amenities and the best food we've ever tasted. Friendly staff on reception to welcome you and the rooms were quirky but fab. Can't remember the number of the room we stayed in, but it featured some steps down into a beautiful bathroom. We always talk about this being the best holiday ever and always use it as a comparison for any other breaks we get chance to go on. We received a complementary 'packed lunch' on departure, unfortunately the order was wrong but it didn't matter a jot as it was lovely. We receive emails from The Metropole but 'normal' prices are too much for us to afford, but you pay for quality. Would love to return.

Room Tip: Fantastic spa facilities
