I looked long and hard for a place to stay in Victoria because I wanted it to be a very special place for our "honeymoon" ( first ever holiday without kids )
From the very first enquiry Paulanne was so friendly and helpful. We booked the Orchid Suite - WOW. The king bed was extremely comfortable. The bathroom was every bit as lovely as the photos on her website show. And the Orchid Suite has its own kitchenette ( we ate dinner in on our last night as we were exhausted from a very full day out and couldn't be bothered to go out)
The breakfasts are as fantastic as other posters have raved about. Paulanne and David really are wonderful friendly hosts.
On their website I saw that we could order a "package" I can't remember the exact name of it, but you can choose items to be in your room on arrival. I chose champagne, wine, cheese platter ( which I must say had incredible local produce) and truffles. All of this was presented beautifully and the champagne was ice cold.
All on all we adored Victoria and if we ever return I wouldn't waste a second looking anywhere else for accommodation.
