Townsville, QLD 4810


The Metropole Hotel is the perfect environment for conferences, banquets, intimate or large weddings and cocktail parties, to name a few.   Whilst the Metropole Hotel has been totally refurbished it has lost none of its old world charm and still proudly boasts the look of a genuine Queensland pub.  At “The Met” we strive to exceed our guests’ expectations by providing great food and fantastic customer service in an environment that is totally unique to Townsville. 


Our venue is located at the eastern end of Palmer Street, commonly known locally as “the restaurant precinct”.  Our versatile function rooms can be darkened for presentations or opened up to natural light.  All rooms boast access to a balcony area which overlooks Ross Creek with city and marina views.  The Metropole Hotel is one minute from the CBD and 15 minutes from the airport.


We encourage you and your guests to take full advantage of all the amenities the Metropole Hotel has to offer, including the bistro and alfresco dining area, the private bar area, have a flutter on keno, or have a chat to the locals in the public bar.  We also have a comfortable and relaxed gaming room with the latest machines for your enjoyment.
