What a great place!

Fantastic food, brilliant friendly helpful staff. Huge room. Safe parking.

Spotless room keeping. Wifi everywhere.

The quality of food was wonderful too.

Could not fault it.

We loved it and look forward to returning next year.

We have just returned from this Hotel while on a coach trip of Mid Wales.
The staff were very friendly and welcoming and the food a very high standard. Nothing was too much trouble. Hope to return again

Stayed just one night the room was comfortable but seemed cramped compared with other hotels used on this trip. As noted in other reviews it shows its age. The town was closed in the evening when we arrived and we left early next morning.The bed was comfortable but the breakfast more than made up for the small inconveniences. The staff were friendly and helpful and apologised for not being ready when we turned up 5 minutes early for breakfast. However they brought us coffee and all was soon rolling. The welsh seem to have the full English breakfast down to a T. In all the stay was pleasant and the surrounding countryside atmosphere was very relaxing

Room Tip: Some rooms had lots of stairs and the lift, small but efficient took us up to a level where we still...

This lovely old hotel in Llandrindod is in dire need of a makeover, its as tired as the town is looking itself really. The hotel seems to thrive on coach triper's and day conference facilities so the footfall is high and the wear and tear on this grand old hotel is showing. In part, i.e. the Spa area its modern and new and fine but the carpets and the rooms and the general decor is tired, got a nice new shower unit though.

Room Tip: ok for a business trip but not recomended for a holiday, ask for a double bed.!

We have just returned from an unexpectedly fabulous golf trip to the Llandrindodd Wells area, made all the more enjoyable by the warm welcome we received by the extremely helpful staff, excellent bedroom and ensuite facilities, superb food, and altogether tranquil/relaxing atmosphere exuded by this very well managed hotel.

We have just spent a long weekend here in mid Wales with our car club and used this hotel as our base for touring. The hotel was perfectly located for this with the most stunning scenery on its doorstep and perfect roads for sports cars and bikes.
It is a very big hotel and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Comfortable lounges and bar to sit in and although inside is perhaps a little dated in some areas it was very clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful at all times in all areas of the hotel. The food was excellent too and thought had gone into this, i.e. serving cold dishes first so that hot meal didn't go cold whilst waiting for other guests to be served. Good wine list. The bedrooms were comfortable with tea, coffee and hot Choc and biscuits. Lovely shower. The spa and pool were good too.
I would definately recommend The Metropole. It made our weekend.

Hotel can be rather gaunt and overwhelming when viewed from the car park but there is a modern lift to sweep you up to the reception level. Constraints of the building mean that lifts to higher floors are small and cramped - a single room on fourth floor was claustrophobic and a double room on the first floor opened onto a rather forlorn and dingy light-well. On-going investment is visible in immaculate bathrooms with high quality fittings and the attention to detail with no skimping on things like quality linen, towels and toiletries. Two really positive areas: the breakfast is a compilation of premium ingredients including fresh toast and a choice of quality breads; the staff are uniformly pleasant and welcoming - their friendliness seems genuine and suggests that they are happy in their tasks. It is very much a conference or convention hotel with busy bar and circulation areas. It is a successful jewel in a forlorn town where the main retail outlets are a large Tesco and an Aldi. But the surrounding scenery provides a wonderful back-drop and there is quick access to the Mid-Wales road network.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view and stick to lower floors to avoid the cramped lifts.
