We spent 2 lovely nights in one of the attic suites at this wonderful Hotel. I took my partner to the Victoria as a birthday treat and it was wonderful. The rooms were superb, great bathrooms and even the torrential rain and thunderstorm didn't disturb us. Food was excellent, great lobster and a fillet steak, together with puddings to die... More

We did not stay here but had two very good lunches at the pub-type restaurant, which is highly recommended. For starter, I had a half Norfolk lobster which was enormous, yummy, soft and very fresh, for under £13. It was cook to order, which meant it was very soft, just the way I like it. I also had the fish... More

Our second stay at the Victoria since the refurbishment. The bedrooms are pleasantly decorated and comfortable. Excellent bathrooms. The hotel itself is cosy and welcoming ....log fire being lit from very early in the morning is a nice touch! Lovely to have the cosy bar and the separate drawing room for residents use only. The staff are most welcoming and... More

We spent two nights here and it was delightful. The hotel is beautiful and closely linked to the look and management style of nearby Holkham Hall. Very welcoming, elegant, food sourced from the estate and so on. Staying here gives you free car parking at Holkham Hall and the stunning Holkham beach (where the last shot of 'Shakespeare in Love'... More

We had the pigeon to start. Perfect - full of flavour and meltingly tender. I had the bavette - what adventurousness - but my goodness what a tasty piece of beef. My wife had the lemon sole - perfectly cooked on the bone. Malbec wine superb. Great atmosphere, excellent staff. Highly recommended!!

Dropped by here for lunch during a walk along the coast, having been recommended we do so by a good friend. Despite both the kitchen closing for maintenance at 1:30 and the fact that we arrived at 1:25, we were served within minutes by professional and welcoming staff. We were aware our timing was probably something of a nuisance (especially... More

We love the fact that many establishments in Norfolk are pretty laid-back, and the Victoria continues to be so. We wanted to enjoy a relaxed evening with a meal, not just have a meal. We were offered the option to eat anywhere in the mostly open spaces: conservatory, informal sitting area, small bar rooms, all with the same menu and... More

We had a light lunch on Saturday, the staff were very helpful and friendly helping us find a seat and serve us, we did have a very enjoyable meal it was good but possibly could have been a lot better especially for the price, I know this is the wealthy North Norfolk coast with its London prices but for what...

The Victoria Inn was recommended to us by our local pub landlords, very discerning people, who had a really good stay and it is a beautiful building in a beautiful location. Unfortunately (or maybe perhaps fortunately) we were unable to stay as we were booked in elsewhere but we decided to check it out for a future occasion . When... More

Whilst it is of course gratifying to read that you came to the Victoria through a personal recommendation it is equally disappointing to read that your expectations were not met during your lunch. I will be sure to share your kind words with Ines (our Portuguese restaurant supervisor) and address the issues you raise on staffing levels. Thank you for... More

We were very disappointed that the tea rooms down the road had been closed to build new luxury apartments, but were directed here instead. We felt as soon as we walked in as if we were a nuisance. The service at the bar for coffee was prehistorically slow and had to wait to be served. We eventually ordered two decaffeinated... More

I am sorry to read of you disappointment at the closure of the Rose Garden. The team at the Victoria have been incredibly excited at the conversion of cafe to additional bedrooms for us. But what has been even more exciting for us is seeing the cafe regulars making the Vic there new coffee stop after a walk on the... More
