Nice hotel close to the beach and amenities but entrance to main reception littered with old cigarette ends and carpets in corridors shabby..Staff very good and obliging, it is good value for budget hotel.
My husband and I stayed at The Metropolitan for two nights as we were helping our son and family move house. My choice was based on reviews I had read and it did not disappoint. There was really nothing we could criticise. Check-in was friendly and efficient. As my husband was running the Park Run and couldn't get back in time for the end of breakfast service, we requested a late breakfast. This was provided willingly. I would certainly visit The Metropolitan again and have no hesitation in recommending it.
Cannot miss the hotel - masses of glorious hanging baskets and greenery at the front. We were lucky to note a reviewer's comment to arrive after 4 pm (one tends to glaze over booking sites' details).
We parked our car on the hotel's private forecourt. The hotel was very clean and fresh. Bedroom very comfortable with good windows which one could open if more fresh air was required. Tea/coffee making facilities in room and if required, Liz will happily let you have a jug of milk. Shower was good with good water pressure.
Plenty of restaurants within strolling distance AND do ask Liz for recommendations - she is good!! Metro stations within walking distance and a most convenient bus stop just up the road from hotel for regular buses to Newcastle.
If you feel a bit greedy with the breakfast cereals, variety of dried fruits, fresh fruits, home made compote and two varieties of home made marmalade (highly recommended) not to mention yoghurt, rack of toasts and butter, tea/coffee - just remember the marvelous cooked breakfast is yet to come and it is massive!
We stayed two very comfortable nights and will definitely be back.

Nice hotel for a short stay, though would have stayed longer if time permitted. Very close to the town centre and sea-front. Proprietors were very amiable and friendly. Parking, though in the street, was simple and problem-free. All i8n all a very pleasant experience. Will definately book again when in the Whitley bay area.
We stayed at Cara's place recently, family of four. Cara put us in a huge bedroom that has 2 queen and 2 twin beds. It could accommodate 6 people easily. It was a fantastic room. There is a sink inside the room so you can brush your teeth and do any quick wash right there but you have to go upstairs for shower/toilets. The house has 2 showers and 2 toilets. Breakfast was great, Cara was a very nice host. We only stayed for one night because of our schedule, but if we are in the area in the future, we certainly would be back!
Situated on the coast in Whitley Bay, the Cara guesthouse offers you a high quality traditional B&B with a warm welcome & …More
No complaints, the hotel was very friendly,the staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. It was very clean.The Full English breakfast was excellent. The room was spacious and had a brilliant panoramic sea view. We will recommend this hotel to our family and friends.
