We escaped London in the 30 degree heat and drove down to Mersea Island, one of our favourite places to visit in summer or winter when we need to get away and smell the sea. Having only camped on Mersea before, we were unaware that there was such a lovely place to stay on the island right on the waterfront with wonderful views. We booked 2 rooms for ourselves and our teenagers, and could not have been happier.
The children had the largest room with king sized bed and double futon, overlooking the marina - and what a huge room it was! And their bathroom had a jacuzzi bath that could fit 4 people, toiletries, fluffy white towels and even candles so you could have a romantic bath with atmosphere. We were in a garden room as we had our dogs with us, and this worked wonderfully as we had a nice fenced patio area outside the room with table and chairs where we could share a glass of wine and the dogs could be outside safely. This garden room was compact but perfectly adequate space, and nicely furnished with tea and coffee making facilities, flat screen TV and DVD player.
The staff were all very pleasant, parking was on site and there are lovely walks straight out the front of the hotel onto the beach road. We had dinner at The Coast Inn 5 minutes down the road, because we were familiar with it, but wish now that we had eaten at the Victory as the food looked very good and The Coast Inn was not up to the standard of previous visits by any means.
All in all, The Victory is a super place to spend the night or a few days if you love Mersea Island as much as we do and want to be by the waterside, with food and drink on tap and decent service. Well done to The Victory and we will be back for sure!
