So much has been written about the Victoria House that it is difficult to make any notable contribution!! Quite simply , it's an "EXCELLENT B&B". Jan is a marvellous host, friendly and very attentive to her guests comfort and satisfaction. The house offers a very homely atmosphere with a whole host of details that one would never look for at... More

Jan made our trip so special, she is a real gem, as is the amazing property. The whole B&B is gorgeous, one of the nicest places we have stayed. The breakfast was delicious with everything you could ever want and the views from the garden over the old town wall and promenade were lovely.

Victoria House ticks all the boxes then some. A very special B & B which delivers far more than anywhere we have traveled through out the UK. Welcoming, Comfortable, Elegant with beautifully presented breakfasts. A time to be spoilt and be spoilt we were. The only place to watch the sunset over Caernarfon Bay from the city wall while enjoying... More

What an amazing place everything was perfect. It was just by chance we got to stay here & we couldn't of found a better place if we had looked for days. So many extra special little touches, the best we have ever stayed in. Breakfast was amazing with everything from fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereal, continental meats, cheeses etc. The courtyard... More

Tops in hospitality! Lovely old building, comfortable rooms, convenient to everything, great breakfast, hospitality beyond compare. The free treats (there's a fridge stocked with water, sodas, beer and wine and a table full of goodies) were a much-appreciated touch. The seaside wall is a wonderful place to watch the sunset; the common room is a cozy place for games. The... More

When we arrived at this B&B, the owner told us that there had been a cancellation and she upgraded both our rooms (we were travelling with another couple) to larger rooms - ours was at the front of the house overlooking the street and was just lovely. I thought it was very kind for the owner to give us the... More

Beautiful, clean and quiet location. Comfortable room with a nice bed, a large, modern bathroom and tasteful decoration. The food was excellent and the owner, Jan, was friendly, helpful and attentive. Excellent spot for sightseeing, shopping or just relaxing. Would stay here again and I recommend the Victoria House to anyone wanting to travel to Caernarfon.

Quite easily the best B&B we have stayed in in Wales. Centrally located in Caernarfon in a beautiful street adjacent to the city walls the houses look like period mews houses but are much bigger inside. Our room is large even with the en-suite with views over the city walls and a tower. There is a downstairs lounge with doors... More
