Had a great few days at this hotel with my wife. The small pool and spa were perfect and very quiet whilst we were there. It has a lovely "old world" glamour feel to the place. We had excellent fresh crab salad sandwiches in the lounge over looking the sea for lunch. Cocktails at the bar were fun as well.... More

We booked this hotel as our main summer holiday for six nights, our first visit, last year we went to one of their hotels in Barnstable which was faultless. This hotel was much more expensive but to be honest except for the location which was amazing we didn't find it worth the extra money. We did have one of t... More

We did not stay overnight but had a family lunch party here recently. We could not fault the hotel in any way - there was adequate parking; the staff were all courteous and friendly without being intrusive; the food was delicious; we were allocated a private room after lunch with views out to sea; several of us used the putting...

This hotel is the finest in our hotel experience, including five star hotels in Portugal.Service in the restaurant was exceptional, Esther and Choba deserve high praise for charm and professionalism. The location of the produces fine views in all directions, in our case the sea view. Overall a wonderful experience.

From the friendly welcome at reception until the moment we checked out every member of staff we encountered could not have been more helpful, getting 'customer service' spot on without being intrusive. Our room, the food, the facilities all exceeded our expectations.

We have stayed at the Victoria Hotel from time to time for nearly 30 years - since our children were small. It has always been excellent and continues to be so. The accommodation, facilities and dining are constantly updated, without losing the old fashioned standards which are completely appropriate for a place like Sidmouth. One point to note is that...

My experience of the Victoria is limited to a one night stay. It was excellent and exactly what you would expect from a 4* hotel. The staff were good, the room we were given was excellent. The location was good and the food was what you would expect from a 4* hotel, absolutely adequate, but not memorable. However, I was... More

Our group of 5 family members travelling together stayed at the Victoria Hotel for 5 nights in order to visit a nearby friend and take day trips throughout south Devon. The hotel is spectacularly set on on a breathtaking coastline, and in my opinion, it was one of the finest hotel stays I have experienced in many years of visiting... More
