Stayed just one night at the Victoria. The Inn, as this is certainly not a hotel, is certainly very pleasant. The room, albeit one of the tiniest I've stayed in (the bed filled the room to the extent you couldn't open the door properly to enter), was clean and comfortable. Bed soft, super shower, tea making facilities. The restaurant pretty... More

Just had to recommend the excellent fish n chips , we had sitting in the gardens of The Victoria on a sunny lunch-time. The fish was fresh, the batter perfect and the chunky chips to die for. Maybe the best 'fish n chips' ever !!!!

We have been a little disappointed in recent years with just OK food but good beer. This year a very pleasant surprise, great good value lunches both in the outside courtyard and the dining... More

We just spent our 30th wedding anniversary weekend at the Victoria and had a wonderful time. Food excellent, flexible around time for dining (traffic at Kings Lynn was terrible and a three of our lunch guests were delayed an hour). Rooms were immaculate, view out across to the maritime pines at Holkham beach. We had our dog with us and... More

Had a lovely family meal last night. Well looked after by the friendly staff, drinks out side then in for a great meal. Slight disappointment with a pudding that was dealt with very well by the girl serving us, so completely forgiven. Friendly, good food, put up with teenagers and reasonably priced. Well worth a visit, especially if you are... More

Me and a friend popped in for a quick drink in the evening after a lovely stroll along the beach, we sat at the bat and waited for 10 minutes to be served, and still no one asked, despite the fact the pub only had a couple of people in and staff were in abundance. We had to ask to... More

My partner and I have stayed here several times since the refurbishment last year, each time we both have enjoyed the stay even more. The cleanliness of the rooms is perfect, the facilities provided and the extra little touches added makes it hard to leave; the finest teas and coffee, biscuits and pieces of rock.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Standing at the gateway to Holkham and the National Nature Reserve, the Victoria is a classic English inn owned by the Coke family and managed by the Holkham estate. There are ten elegant bedrooms, the bar and dining rooms offer a relaxed blend of style and comfort. The “Vic” serves delicious locally sourced food, much of it grown and raised on the estate with a bold emphasis on freshness, simplicity and value. Holkham has been a leading agricultural estate since the 1800’s when Thomas William Coke bought the site and the young Queen Victoria elevated him to the peerage in recognition of his contribution to farming in 1837. The name of the proposed new inn must have been inevitable when it opened its doors in 1838.The Victoria re-opened in May 2013 following extensive refurbishment. ... more   less
