              Stephen and the staff made you feel relaxed while away from home and in new surroundings. The service was excellent and so very friendly. Good value for money, great room and an excellent breakfast. Everywhere was clean and modern, the bed very comfortable, good size room with all mod cons and the bathroom was sparkling clean. Attention to detail in the rooms was very good Stephen had put a lot of thought into what customers need. Will definitely stay again and the location is also excellent.

              Internet was not working which was inconvenient as we needed to have this facility. Stephen did apologies and we did ask for a second room key which was not supplied. On check out we had to pay cash because the card machine was not working. This was not an issue for us but other guests were not too happy about this. However, Stephen sent letters to the rooms giving plenty of notice of this problem and there were plenty of banks close by for cash withdrawals.

              I stayed there for 4 days. It is very nice B&B hotel and not far from Whitley bay metro station just go straight to the sea. Breakfast was also very nice. Hotel staffs were very friendly.

              Location is good as it quite close to train station. Well maintain and the boss is friendly.

              The bed is too soft and not comfortable.

              Very friendly and helpful staff who did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable. Our room was very pleasant and the hotel is modern for Whitley Bay! The toilet in the en-suite was a little cramped but functional. Great cooked breakfasts with extra buffet of juices, cereals and fruit included. Free parking available on site and in the street. Recommended.

              Unfortunately wifi wasn't working during our stay

              Staff are very friendly. A lovely warm welcome. Smart, comfortable room with good facilities. Breakfast was spectacular, great fresh, local ingredients, well cooked. Close to sea and to centre of Whitley Bay. Lots of places to visit. All the people we came across were very friendly. Would definitely stay again.

              Lack of parking is a problem but is the same for all the other hotels.

              Excellent conversion of Victorian terrace using modern colour scheme. Steve was just right as the operator - helpful & informative but not intrusive. Well equipped room down to extension board for the appliances we all carry.

              The bed was just OK and will need renewal pretty soon.

              Friendly staff, clean, spacious room, relaxed atmosphere, fresh decor which has a quality feel, reasonable prices, good food, and room facilities were good.

              The free Wi-Fi did not reach the room on the top floor, so I had to go downstairs to access the internet. Easily fixed though with a signal booster and maybe switching frequencies to avoid clashing with neighbouring networks. I mentioned this to the owner at the end of my stay; it wasn't a big deal but would have made things a bit easier. When we arrived there was plenty of on-street parking but on the last day the road got busy with vans, and we were circling round for a space and ended up parked down the far end of the road. The Metropolitan has two parking places on the front but these only really suit small cars.

              Checking in was very straightforward. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and pleasantly furnished. The breakfast was excellent. Checking out was speedy and straightforward. The Metropolitan provided all I needed for a short business trip.

              There was nothing I didn't like.
