We have stayed at The Victoria many times since 1998, and it remains my favourite hotel in the whole world. We always combine a visit to The Donkey Sanctuary when staying at this splendid hotel, which is why I love Sidmouth so much. The comfortable rooms, the dramatic central staircase, the cosy lounge and sumptuous dining room serving delicious food... More

I expected to be disappointed at our stay - English hotels don't have the best of reputations, but in the main I was pleasently surprised. The hotel is decorated to a high standard, the quality of the food at dinner was excellent, the location is great, the rooms are ok. However, it is the staff that make the hotel, I... More

We stayed here on a lovely sunny weekend in March 2015 with a large group of friends. The hotel is close to the promenade and beaches and the very attractive Connaught Gardens. Our double room had a partial sea-view and was comfortably furnished and very clean and quiet. In our bathroom, the shower was over the bath which made it... More

We have just had a wonderful weekend with a family group of thirty people at The Victoria at Sidmouth. I was so impressed with the organisation, the attention to detail, the attitude of the staff, the cleanliness and most importantly the wonderful food. Amongst thirty of us we ahve a huge variety of food wants ranging from GF and nut... More

My wife and I ( and our children for many yearsa)have been regulars at the Vic since 1971 and we have nothing but praise for the high standards that they maintain. The hotel and its grounds are of a very high standard and the service throughout cannot be faulted.

We were a group of 29 staying at the Hotel for Dinner, Bed and Breakfast. From the moment we arrived, being greeted by the Doorman, then the Porter and the Receptionist we knew we were going to have a fantastic weekend. The Hotel is in a wonderful situation with views of the sea from most all rooms, the decor is... More

A first class hotel with comfortable rooms, spotlessly clean, excellent food and, above all, a friendly and helpful staff. This hotel is outstanding. I have stayed there twice and hope to go back many more times. The special offers for a stay of three to five nights are extremely good value.

The Victoria is certainly the best Hotel we have ever had the good fortune to stay in, superb surroundings, fantastic staff, couldn't do enough for us, always pleasant, helpful, thoughtful and friendly. The food was "out of this world" superb. Look forward to going again next year.

My wife and I stayed at the Victoria for the weekend as part of a party of thirty. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The decor everywhere was immaculate and the furnishings were of high quality. The views from the lounge were quite stunning. Our room was very well pointed and had everything that one could wish for in... More

I stayed just the two nights as I was doing some business in nearby Exeter. The hotel exceeded expectations. Unfortunately many of the UK seaside towns have really gone down hill over the last 30 years, along with their hotels. Not here, the hotel was in excellent condition, the rooms, public areas, bar and restaurant are all immaculate. The rooms... More
