The Victoria Hotel is an old 'historic' hotel which is undergoing a long needed revamp to bring it up to modern standards. As such it has parts that look fine and other parts that are pretty dire. It is unfortunate that the way in which the upgrade is being done means that one has to walk the long corridors to get to the modernised rooms. And its a bit of a warren so finding your way takes a couple of goes (improved signposting would help). Having said this, the room, though small was very comfortable, clean and modern with a good bathroom; the only complaint again would relate to the age of the place - the outlook into a dank inner unrefurbished courtyard was unappealing.
The Car Parking arrangements were again reminicent of its past (it is in the bowels of the Hotel and accessible only via the concierge), but at least convenient.
Staff were friendly and the large aquarium forming a backdrop to Reception is a welcoming site.
Overall, the pricing of this Hotel reflects its current situation and if you can cast your mind beyond this, it presents great value for money.
