This is our fourth visit as a family to the Metropole and we have just returned from yet another wonderful stay. Each year when looking for a short October break we look elsewhere, with the thought of trying somewhere different, yet each year we end up returning here. The family bedrooms are clean, comfortable and spacious, the food on the gourmet break was excellent (childrens meals at extra cost were very good), and the spa is superb with many an hour spent enjoying the facilities - all at a great price. We find the hotel warm, relaxing and welcoming with attentive service and over the years we have been visiting we have seen many improvements and changes to the decor and layout as they seek to update and improve.
This is an old victorian family run hotel - a rare (and commendable) thing in itself these days! - so if you're looking for modern, chic, new and up-to-date then this may not be your thing. If however, you want somewhere you can relax in comfort, warmth, old but clean and well maintained surroundings, with an element of endearing querkiness and with staff quietly always nearby to help, then we would certainly recommend the Metropole.
As it's an old hotel in the middle of Llandrindod, you perhaps wouldn't expect to find the car park next to the front door of the hotel, you will however, find a huge spacious car park at the rear (with a pleasant terraced staircase to the rear door) and it's safely tucked away in a quiet residential street - and easy to find. Out and about the Elan Valley and reservoirs are spectacular at this time of year with plenty of walking opportunities and a visitor centre with cafe and chidrens play area that is worth a visit.
In summary, our children continue to enjoy this hotel, the grown-ups always come away feeling relaxed and I have no doubt that we will return again for another short break in the future.
