The hotel is terrible: dirty carpets, very dirty staircases, back entrance disgusting. Room was not clean. Reception hardly present. It is central though (bus stop very close) and the downstairs pub and restaurant seemed popular. No lift and many stairs through hidden passages to the room. The Internet and website photo's definitely don't reflect the true state of the rooms!

I stayed here on business midweek. This is a small hotel. The rooms were spacious and spotless. The bathroom and shower were clean and functional. The bar is nice with a good selection of beers. The food in the restaurant was excellent with good sized portions. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hallways could do with a spruce... More

Had a really cosy stay in the Victoria Park Hotel on 15 June - a cold, wet/miserable evening. Had a grand pint of Guinness and lovely meal from the specials on the blackboard in the Otterstone Bar & Grill. Excellent food and service. Adjourned to the Gosford Bar then for a nice Scottish pint there with the locals. Stayed in... More

Room 6 was awful. Broken door handles, shower head would not stay up had to use at waist level, leaking radiator, marks on wall, lumpy pillows, had to get a replacement towel as one had been used by someone who had just done an oil change! No lights on second night but too tired to faff about getting them fixed,... More

We stayed here for 1 night as we had a family wedding in the city centre. We had rooms 8 & 9 (up in the attic!!) & unfortunately we were extremely disappointed. First of all it was like walking into an oven once we reached rooms 8 & 9. It seemed like these 2 rooms had been an attic conversion.... More

A friendly welcome was received when I returned to this hotel recently. The room was clean and everything was good, towels, water pressure Wifi etc but what sets this hotel above most is that nothing is too much trouble from all of the staff. - well worth a visit -especially for the good food.

Place looked nice,unfortunately food was the opposite. I had what the me.u said to be soup and crusty bread,friend had a gosford burger and chips. My "crusty bread" was 4 slices of cheap packet bread lightly toasted on one side. The burger ,charged at an expensive £10.50 was just a lump of meat on a dry roll. Chips were frozen... More

Dear Guest I'm left to wonder if this is a true account of what happened on that evening!! It obviously appears you were unhappy, and also obvious you do not want to give us a second chance. The Gosford burger is only available in the Gosford bar, not in the Otterstone bistro. The burger available in the Otterstone is what... More

Ideal location to go visit Britannia at the docks. Staff were very helpful. The Italian lady couldn't do enough for us even with a private function going on, amazing!!
