“Lovely Hotel and Brilliant Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Excellent short break, made to feel very welcome, the room was cosy as described very clean, as was the whole hotel, staff were very helpful, breakfast very good, can only recommend that you stay and find out for yourselves - we will be going back so hopefully that speaks volumes.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

Have to agree with the other reviewers. We also stayed in a Cosy Room. We did stay four nights, and I would go for a larger room, or one with a terrace, next time. The rooms are 3m by 3m, including the en suite.
The staff are the friendliest in France. Very nice people. We stayed during their busiest period and they were very attentive and helpful. They booked tables at restaurants for us, and pointed out the best beaches and days out.
The hotel is situated in a quiet side street, 2 minutes walk from the beach and town centre. There is no allocated parking, but we always managed to find a parking spot within 50 metres. Tip: pay for you parking. Some Brits risk it, but you could get towed away. It cost me €17 for four days.
All things considered, a very pleasant stay and I would recommend this hotel

Room Tip: Pay the extra and go for a bigger room!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

My girlfriend and I stayed here for one night in August 2012. We decided to make a last-minute trip to northern France and booked this hotel on the day of arrival, after reading the good reviews on TripAdvisor. The reviews were spot on! The hotel is clean, comfortable and located a few minutes' walk from the seafront and shops of Le Touquet.

We stayed in a "cosy" room.

Pros:
- The staff gave us possibly the most friendly welcome I've ever experienced in a hotel; they spoke excellent English and also had a go at understanding my not-so-excellent French.
- The hotel was very clean and the beds were incredibly comfortable.
- The location is perfect; not at all noisy, but within easy reach of the beach and shops.
- We had no trouble finding somewhere to park on the street and it wasn't particularly expensive (€9 for two days)
- The bathroom was clean and the shower was good.

Cons:
- The "cosy" room really is cosy, certainly the smallest double room I've ever stayed in. We weren't bothered by this as we were out most of the time, but if you were spending more than one or two nights, you should consider a larger room.
- The walls are very thin. We had quiet neighbours and were considerate ourselves, however if you're a light sleeper or you want to make some noise yourself, stay elsewhere.

Overall, perfect for what we wanted - inexpensive, clean and well-located.

Room Tip: "Cosy" rooms contain a bed, a wardrobe, a desk and a WC/shower crammed into a very small s...

We bracketed a week in Holland with stays at the Victoria one week apart. The Cosy Rooms were perfectly adequate and, as the staff pointed out, recommended for one night stops only. More than that and the compact dimensions might start to take their toll. But it is well done and is very convenient for the town. Air con would be a bonus and some resident noise can intrude but overall this is a good stop. We were there in late July and parking nearby on the road simply not possible so we parked on the front, in the main car park. Free after 7 and before 9 and given the squads of dour police reassuringly in evidence, perfectly safe.

Room Tip: A Cosy Room is what is says on the tin. They all have a massive bed in a small room but they do hav...

We agree with other reviews that the location of this hotel is very good being just back from the sea front and very near to the bars and restaurants but in a quiet street. The rooms are designed to be the most economical with space that they can be, we had one of the bigger ones but it still felt on the small side. However the bedding and beds were of a very good quality and the room was very clean. The main hotel (staircase/ reception area) was quirky but not very welcoming if you wanted somewhere to sit out of your room. OK for an overnight stay but would not stay there for any longer and we also thought at around £90 a night, a little overpriced for what it was.

A mixed experience at Castel Victoria. The location is great. One road back from the beach front, and just down from the best shops and restaurants. If it is a mixture of cuisine and fresh air that you are after then you would probably find this place suits you well.
The hotel is also clean and the staff seem to be genuinely trying to be helpful. They were able to recommend and book nice restaurants too.

A few words of warning however:
1. The "Cosy rooms" are exactly that. Cosy. The toilet was less than one metre from the bed in our room and separated by a flimsy piece of wood. Manageable if you are husband and wife or best friends only!
2. We were told when booking in that "the parking is free for English cars" - odd I thought, but I was assured by a member of staff that he was sure this was correct. We returned to our car the next day with a parking ticket on it. Upon taking the ticket to reception I was simply told "But you don't have to pay it because they can't trace you..." This largely misses the point don't you think? It also made the price of the stay more expensive than the couple of pounds extra we would have paid for parking!
3. The breakfast is below par. Continental style but very limited choice. We had ham and cheese, and very little else.

Room Tip: Do not under any circumstances get on of the "Cosy" rooms! These are converted broom cupbo...

When they describe the rooms as cosy they are correct. King size bed in a single room. But saying that location is ideal for a night in town. Rooms clean and comfortable if a little weird. It's also very good value for money and the staff are very friendly.
