4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Spent only one night at the Victoria as part of a weekend stay. Some areas are a little tired - notably the bath in the ensuite to the single room I stayed in which was stained and a bit worn - but its easy to forget about as the main rooms are simply stunning. Lovely sparkling chandeliers, old wood panelling... More

Fantastic week,old fashioned values and service and food . We've been going for over 35 years on and off and still enjoying it. My 7 year old and my two nephews 8 and 10 loved the pools and entertainment. We've booked again for October

My husband and i went for our wedding anniversary. The dining room very light and pleasant. Staff very good. Our meal was enjoyable. But their neighbouring hotel does pip them to the post, with their lunches and service. I will say the white/dark chocolate cheesecake with chantilly cream was a melt in the mouth moment. It really was yummy. Will... More

My parents have visited this hotel on many occasions and it is very close to my dad's heart. We all visited the hotel over last weekend any brother and his family came over... More

My wife and I stayed here whilst visiting Sidmouth for a family party. Firstly let me stay that many aspects of this hotel are very nice. It is a very historic building with a lovely setting. The room itself is very nice, you get fruit, Belgian chocolates and many toiletries. Our room had a nice view of the sea. The... More

To start with, i will say that the hotel looks lovely. It has some gorgeous features from the reception through to the inside lobby and first impressions are impressive. but that is, i'm afraid, where the grandeur ends. My husband had been awed by the websites photographs of the facilities and rooms but having seen them first hand, all i... More

The Victoria has everything you could wish for. The cuisine was out of this world, a big thank you to the chefs and waiting staff who were so kind and helpful. The room had a lovely sea view and was ample size, the furnishings luxurious. The house keeping staff were friendly, polite and showed wonderful service. Facilities were superb and... More

We have stayed in this hotel many times and, like all the other reviews, we can confirm that the food, service and cleanliness is first class. However, unlike the majority of 4* hotels on England's coast that are tired and with investment often lacking, the Victoria Hotel and the Brend family of hotels are first rate. Over the years we...

Location of hotel and sea view room brilliant. Service, cleanliness and leisure facilities excellent in all respects. The restaurant was however disappointing. With a supposedly outstanding chef, the starters were indeed exceptionally creative and good, but the main courses and desserts were a real let-down. The former were dull and unimaginative with the same vegetables served both nights; the desserts... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Set in 5 acres of manicured gardens, the Victoria welcomes guests with a unique blend of hospitality, comfort and style.
