Myself and my wife stayed here on Sunday 13th July. The staff were very good, the quality of the food was very good and the location was also very good. Being a disabled person I was impressed with the helpfulness of the staff. I would recommend this hotel to anybody looking for a better quality hotel in the area.

The service and staff were excellent in every way My wife and I had a superior twin bedded room which was very 1970's dated and with hard uncomfortable beds. There are extensive facilities with heated outdoor and indoor pools, but we found the indoor one and spa unattended. The location is ideal for visiting the town and gardens. The restaurant... More

We stayed at this hotel in May for two nights to extend our honeymoon a little before we had to go home. We stayed again in June on the spur of the moment; on both occasions the welcome by the reception staff was professional and friendly. The dress code in the restaurant did put me off a little, but as... More

As soon as you arrive at the Victoria, you know you are going to be well looked after. Drive into the entrance and you are met by the porter as you get out of the car and he carries in your luggage without being asked. Check in was equally easy and we were very pleased with our room. Yes, small... More

Spur of the moment decision to see the sea. Friends had recommended the Victoria. We were not disappointed. Old fashioned values but in a highly complimentary way. From the minute we arrived until the time when we left we were looked after extremely well. Staff all excellent, friendly and polite. We felt genuinely valued.

For some time our friends have been extolling the virtues of the Victoria Hotel in Sidmouth. We have just had a four day break there and all the praise was justified. It is a very nice building in an excellent location. We had a room with a sea view; the room was all one could have wanted and the staff... More

We’ve just returned from a magical week at The Victoria. I’ve been visiting to the hotel since I was a child and this year returned with my toddler. Upon arrival we were greeted by Cliff, the head doorman, who has been there since I was little and were delighted to be told by the lovely staff on reception that our... More

Our first stay at The Victoria was as long ago as 1961! Recently we have stayed for 5 nights in the Spring, and occasionally later in the year as well. We do not repeat hotel stays unless we are very happy there, which we are at the Victoria. We love the ambience, especially the flowers all around, and the bedroom... More
