Excellent Staff

'My wife and I spent a two nights in the Metropole Hotel, mid-week. It is a lovely old hotel going back to the late 19th century. We were greeted by Shauna at reception. She was friendly and most welcoming. This set the tone for a very enjoyable stay. Marie also on reception was most helpful. 

We had asked for a quiet room, which we got, overlooking the river Lee. The roomwas very adequate in size and the decoration was fresh. We had dinner in the restaurant, which was excellent. We were looked after very well by Helen. 

This hotel is very central. The staff are excellent. The value is very good.'
