Good food, lovely rooms, attentive staff. Nice indoor pool for pre breakfast swim. Lovely lounges to relax in while watching the sea and good to be able to eat bar meals in this relaxed place. Only negative was the high mark up on a bottle of wine . Fabulous stay thank you

We have had wonderful holidays at the Victoria hotel for many years and this year was no exception. Fine food, friendly staff and comfortable bedrooms together with a little light entertainment most evenings together add up to a very special hotel. Many of the guests, including us, book their next stay as they leave. Sea view rooms have excellent views... More

We have been visiting The Victoria Hotel for many years and it never fails to deliver. The staff are excellent - nothing is too much trouble. The food is always to a very high standard and the evening meals are a wonderful way to round off a day. The rooms are clean and well maintained. It is a very traditional... More

Nice hotel, clean, good furnishings, well decorated, pleasant staff. Food looked good, but prices quite high, so not good value for money, even during folk week! Location good near sea front, spa and pool looked nice although we didn't have time to use them!

A second stay over 15 years since our last visit. The hotel was as good as we remembered, in fact better as the bedrooms had been improved. Although an old building it is maintained superbly well with wonderful interior decoration and manicured grounds. It has everything you could want in a hotel from lovely grounds, swimming pools and leisure activities... More

My mother and I have just returned from another fabulous stay at The Victoria. My mother is now 91 and with failing sight, but she regards The Victoria as 'home from home' as she always has the same room. The staff are wonderful: welcoming, cheery and attentive and the atmosphere throughout the hotel is friendly. And in a few days... More

We had a major family birthday to celebrate. The hotel was superb. The residents lounge was set aside for us and the table laid beautifully, additionally soft seating was arranged around the room so we could mingle as we wanted. The service was impeccable, relaxed and went with the flow of the requirements of 17 family members from 19 months... More

This is my third visit to the Victoria hotel as guest. When I lived in Sidmouth I often visited the bar and for dinner. Now when I return to Sidmouth on holiday, for the Folk Festival, or for nearby work, I choose to stay here. The hotel is wonderful. The rooms are well kept and extremely well cleaned. The service...

Great location, light and airy main atrium and lounge space. Nice room and thoughtful additions of welcome chocolates, fruit bowl. Feels like a perfect balance of grandeur and discretion. I travel a lot on business and this hotel compares favourably with many top names. Fantastic.

Set in 5 acres of manicured gardens, the Victoria welcomes guests with a unique blend of hospitality, comfort and style. Perfectly located on Sidmouth's beautiful seafront esplanade, for many years the Victoria has been owned and managed by the Brend family - Devon and Cornwall's leading family hoteliers. Much loving care and attention has been lavished upon this fine establishment and it's no wonder that it enjoys a reputation as one of England's finest hotels. ... more   less
