Lovely hotel nice location and friendly staff. Stayed in a lovely bedroom on fourth floor and everything about our room was perfect. The staff were very helpful as they always are. The hotel is situated across the river from the city centre but it's near enough to walk and near enough to train station.Will be staying again.

The Metropole bent over backwards to make sure we had a perfect stay. The family room was spacious, the food was excellent (great choice for all) and our two boys loved the pool. Brilliant location right in the heart of things. Will be back for certain!

All good, nice location and friendly staff. Stayed in a triple bedroom and everything about our room was perfect. The staff were very helpful and informative, the hotel is situated across the river from the city centre but it's near enough to walk.

Great location to walk anywhere for a night out. Staff was great to deal with, but the place had a motel 8 room compared to the great pictures. I would suggest using their photographer for any event, given the magical outcome.

We found the hotel to be very clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The food in both the Bar and the restaurant was well presented and the service was both friendly and efficient. The room was quite small but to be expected in a city hotel also we found the room to be very warm
