The Iconic Metropole Hotel Returns

The Metropole Hotel Townsville, where history and hospitality converge. Built in 1887, the Metropole has stood as an iconic landmark, earning the nickname 'the first and last' on the famous 'Port to City Pub Crawl.' It was the initial encounter for wharfies and sailors and the final stop before their return to the port. Fast forward to today, whether it’s your first or last stop, you’ll find all the comforts needed to cater for all manner of corporate and leisure guests, with a bistro open 7 days for lunch and dinner, public bar with sports-viewing and TAB betting as well as an exclusive full-service gaming lounge. 

With over 130 years of rich history, the Metropole Hotel has undergone a meticulous restoration and reimagining, embracing modern comforts while maintaining its historic charm, delivering you the very best experience. We look forward to welcoming you with the seamless blend of heritage and hospitality that defines the Metropole.
