The Jewel in the Crown of the North Cornwall Coast

Work on the Metropole was started in 1900 and the hotel opened its doors in 1904. It was built by the sons of John Cory and Sons, ship owners from Cardiff. It was built as much for the holidays of the extended family as for a commercial enterprise. The total cost including fitting was 12,000. The hotel was originally called The South Western, to benefit from the planned railway development but it was Southern Railways who eventually brought the trains to Padstow. This prompted the change of name. The railway brought many visitors on the direct line from Waterloo, including many M.P.s. The then Prince of Wales was a regular visitor for the golf, did Mrs. Simpson visit too? Not suprisingly there are no records of this! In 1936, following the deaths of the Cory Brothers, Trust House bought the hotel and it remained within the company until it was sold in June 2002 to the Richardson Group. Currently the hotel stands as Padstow's premier three star hotel offering 50 bedrooms, with and without sea view , mini suites and three lovelly four poster rooms. All our rooms are en suite with all the facilities you would expect from a hotel of this standard. Padstow has always been somewhere to go for good food our chefs are exercising their skills working with fine local produce imaginative and well prepared dishes to restore you after a long day out.
