My parents and I have just stayed in the Victoria Hotel and it was very nice. The room was good size and comfortable, but no proper lighting in the bedroom - two dim lamps and one ceiling light. We could have done with a shower instead of the combined bath. Breakfast finished at 9.30am which to us, was very early.... More

There is an almost too good to be true aura about the Victoria, a good idea but the place just doesn't pull it off. Everything from cheesy decorations to poorly trained staff. I've stayed twice now and I can happily say NEVER AGAIN!! The receptionist was a mean old woman who argued with me about my radiator not working, there... More

We recently got back from a quick 1 night stop over in this hotel. As it is a similar price to the village hotel down the road, I thought I would try something a bit different. The only thing that really lets down the hotel aesthetically are the carpets throughout, which are in serious need of an update. We paid... More

I was booking my friends into the hotel as a treat for her 70th birthday. So I went especially to check the rooms beforehand. The receptionist was very agreeable and showed me 2 beautiful rooms. I asked for the one with the bath and shower and asked if they could have a garden view. They were given a smaller room... More

The location is a little far away but the beds are comfortable, it's affordable and the staff are lovely. We needed some things printed and they just told us to email to them and they had it all done for us, no drama. Customer service is pretty weak in the UK but it was really great here. They were so...

We stayed for two nights. When we first arrived we found a twin room instead of a double bed as we have booked, but the receptionist offered to give a discount in the morning. We agreed and pushed the beds together for the night. The day after we went for a walk and upon our returned we found the room... More

The hotel was both the venue and accommodation for a big family party last weekend. It's well appointed dining room has recently been re-furbished to a very good standard....matching the food. Bedrooms are warm, spacious and clean, The biggest asset the hotel has though is it's staff. Professional, polite and eager to make sure that the experience is a good... More

I can't fault this hotel as a business traveler. Just off the motorway, lots of parking. Room is exactly what you want clean and fully functional. Even lots of accessible sockets so no more searching on your hands and knees!
