We have stayed at the Victoria for several years with our dog. Always experience a warm welcome and a warm and cosy bedroom. Although areas need a bit of a facelift we enjoyed its charm and character yet again after our stay in August although We noticed several changes on our recent visit. We only recognised two members of previous... More

Will not be staying again even tho I have been coming here for more than 10 years. Standards have been erratic in the past couple of years and have recently taken a nosedive. I don't know why this has happened but I suspect the management has been under a lot of stress which has been communicated to the staff with... More

First impressions are good with a pleasant lobby and bar. However, venturing up to the room things quickly deteriorate. A murky corridor and stained carpet lead the way to our rather poky and dated room. The furnishings and bathroom fittings are in dire need of an update. The plumbing in our room also left a little to be desired -... More

Agree with previous posters, there was one helpful and genuinely interested young man working there and a new waitress in the restaurant who cared about what she was doing but the rest clearly don't care and should not be in the hotel trade. The food is poor quality - certainly no local produce for breakfast and no kippers left -... More

The Victoria Hotel is in a great location and serves ok food included in the package, but other than that it is poor. The thing that got to me most was the unpleasant, stale smell of the room, bathroom and I think the whole place- it just felt horrible. We booked two rooms and I was in a "single" which... More

Tired and threadbare Victorian pile with no charm and one member of staff in some position of authority - he didn't actually bother to explain who he was - who clearly considered guests to be an imposition on his time and couldn't wait to get them out of the building. Ridiculously overpriced and presumably only able to get away with... More

Most of the staff at this hotel were well trained and welcoming, especially the Polish waitress. The dinner and breakfast were acceptable. However, the hotel is in need of investment and complete redecoration and renovation. it is overpriced for the standard of decoration and furnishing. Good service from friendly staff cannot excuse neglect by the owners who need to put... More

We've stayed here annually for last five years, but this time we were very disappointed. The standard has slipped considerably. We stayed in a newly returned room with castle view which was very nice and paid £175 per night, the bed was so uncomfortable my partner slept in the chair and I didn't sleep at all. Al the little luxuries... More
