Good central hotel

Posted 13-Sep-2013
Pros: Enjoyed the pool and location
Cons: More space between the tables in the dining room
Location: Good location with parking so easy to walk into town then take the car if going further afield
Apart from the fact that our room was miles from the hotel lobby, we enjoyed our stay.

good old fashioned hotel

Posted 13-Sep-2013 on Hotels.com
We stayed here for 3 nights in sept and it is a clean well placed hotel. The service is quick and efficient. The hotel caters for more mature guests so if you are under 50 you may feel slightly out of place. Overall would stay again at the right price.

Wont recommend to young people

Posted 09-Sep-2013
Pros: The breakfast
Cons: Wifi to be provided in the rooms.
The hotel description on expedia is a bit misleading. The room aminities leads you to believe that wifi is available in the room when it is not. wifi is only available in common areas and even where it is available the speed is quite appaling. Apart from that the hotel is quite nice and the breakfast is excellent if you take it with the package. The staff is good. However, the general age of the guests staying in the hotel is on the higher side. Considering they have 100+ rooms we could only see 2-3 younger families and no youg couples at all. Most of the guests staying there are older people.

Nice hotel shame about the entertainment

Posted 18-Aug-2013
Nice hotel, a little dated, but clean and welcoming. Close to beach and shops plus lots of restaurants to choose from nearby. The only downside was the "entertainment" was dire only fit for over 90's. Don't mind a singer of the old songs - but someone with more enthusiasm and better singing voice would be a great advantage.

convenient, friendly and comfortable hotel

Posted 24-Jul-2013
Pros: breakfast
Cons: evening entertainment
Location: convenient
food was excellent, as were the waiters. evening entertainment was geared towards the elder generation which could have been improved. receptionists were helpful and friendly. the beach. shops and howard davies park were nearby, which was convenient. hotel computers were a useful holiday tool.

Ok for package tours!

Posted 02-Oct-2012
Pros: Reception staff were friendly and had a good sense of humour!
Cons: Hotel is dated and needs updating.
Location: Just off central shopping area, no view as such, just adjacent houses. It's a good 15 mins walk to port area.
Hotel is clean, tidy,quiet, and reasonably comfortable, but dated. Staff were friendly. We only ate in the hotel at breakfast time, this was very average! The hotel is more suited towards package tours for senior citizens, I get the felling we were the youngest there and we're in our 40's!! There are better hotels in the area for the same or less money.

Not for everyone.

Posted 18-Sep-2012 on Hotels.com
Owned by a company called ‘Modern Hotels’ the Metropole was a far cry from our expectations, with bedrooms as outdated as their marketing. The Metropole was your stereotypical elderly hotel from flowery wall paper and rose scented shampoo to on hand mobility scooters. Not however so appropriate for a young couple over to interview acts at the local festival. Our first disappointment came from the fact the hotel looked very different to the images on the site and although our room was a reasonable size, was filled with hideous décor that instantly aged you by 40 years. The lack of attention to detail was clearly apparent with a view of discarded paint pots out the window and a kettle that couldn’t fit under the tap. Highly unsuitable for anyone wanting the treat of a lie in with breakfast finishing at 9:30am. However, although the bedrooms could do with some major restyling it was all kept very clean with helpful staff. It was also in a great location - only a 5 minute walk into the St. Helier high street. To sum up it was the perfect accommodation for anyone over 65 who’s idea of entertainment is lounging and bingo.

Truly ghastly

Posted 04-Sep-2012 on Hotels.com
I would say that this hotel has seen better days, but I'm not at all sure that it has. At a guess, the hotel was designed in the 1970s and judging by the threadbare state of the sheets on my bed, practically transparent with wear, not a great deal has changed. The decor is ancient and faded throughout the hotel, with aged carpets on the floors and worn wallpaper. The bathroom in my room was new, however, and spotlessly clean. The biggest surprise was at breakfast. When I entered the dining room, there didn't seem to be any staff about, so I seated myself at the least repellent table, next to a window covered with a film of grease. As I was eating my cold croissant, I was approached by a waiter with a clipboard who informed me that I was sitting at someone else's table. It turns out that there is pre-assigned seating at breakfast - utterly bizarre. The breakfast itself was disappointing: a pale, salty sausage, a flaccid hash brown, some anaemic bacon and the whole lot drenched in baked beans. I didn't get the chance to have dinner at the hotel on my first night, since I arrived from the airport at about 8.30pm and the kitchen had closed by then. But in any case, you're supposed to order your dinner by 4pm from reception (yes, really). The whole place was so terrible that I checked out after a single night. My Jersey friends told me that this is where all the old people stay, so if that's you, you will no doubt have a lovely time here. I did not.
