“another weekend at the victoria”
Reviewed September 22, 2011

We stayed here last year with the line dancing group and enjoyed it, This year our room had under gone a refurb which was pleasing.
All the staff are approachable and eager to please,our thanks to Lek for keeping our room up to scratch,also our waitress (Tima ? table 2) who worked hard and was always smiling.
The breakfast is self service and offers a very good selection.
On a down side we didn't think the evening meals were quite as good as last year,but still acceptable.
We hope to visit again next year and use the extensive facilities the complex has to offer .

Room Tip: unable to give advice except to say our room no122 has been refurbished ,offering comfortable beds...

I have written a few times about TLH and particularly the Victoria. We have stayed three time this year on short breaks and each time it has been a pleasure. The staff are outstanding and very helpful and friendly from housekeeping to management.

We stayed in apartments with our son and his girlfriend, both in their late teens, and we all had a great time.

All I can say is we all highly recommend TLH.

Well done guys! See you again as soon as we can!

Only stayed at this hotel for 1 night, luckily. No faults with the room itself, only had to ask for a remote controller for the tv, which was dealt with promptly. We paid an extra £10 for a "front room", which consisted of a "view" of the main road, traffic noise for half the night, and the constant drone of some machinery below the window! What a waste of money! However, the food in the restaurant was very enjoyable, the breakfast was cold, and the staff were very friendly! Would not recommend room 103.

This is our forth time at TLH and we usually stay at the Carlton Hotel so were a bit anxious about staying at the Victoria Hotel. All I can say is the family room was superb, so spacous and our 7 and 9 year old boys were really happy (maybe room 106 is the best!) Staff really helpful and friendly. If we lived a bit nearly (in Hampshire so minimum 3 hours drive) would be back more often. You certainly get value for money.

My wife and I stayed at The Victoria Hotel in Torquay for a dance break weekend in August 2011. It was the third time we have stayed there in just over a year. We are always greeted with a friendly smile from all of the staff and the hotel operates on a very relaxed atmosphere. The reception staff are proud of their hotel and are always welcoming with their customer care. The waiters and waitresses in the restaurant are helpful and the bar staff are very efficient and always have the time for a little chat. Even the guy who serves afternoon tea does so with a friendly gesture. Most of all we must mention the chamber maid, Jan ( I think that was her name), who at the end of our stay told us that she is very much a people person and is very keen for all the guests to have a relaxed and happy stay at the Victoria - and that was as much of her role as any other member of staff. I wish that every hotel I have stayed in would have had someone like Jan - a real asset. Well done the Victoria for having such a quality management approach.
Finally, just to mention the dance break itself which was excellent. The dance instructors, John and Linda West were great. We had dance lessons in the morning and social dancing in the night together with a tea dance on Sunday. They were enthusiastic, keen to ensure that everyone got the most from the weekend, very encouraging and brilliant hosts. This was our second time with them at the Victoria and it will not be the last time.

Bank hoilday weekend in torquay with my husband and child. Love torquay harbour area so wanted to get close to that. We paid close on £300 for 2nts B&B. No friendly welcome when you arrive. Corridor leading to room was full of "wet patches" and smellt of damp. Room ok though. We are carling beer drinkers. So we were gutted there was none. We tried the carlsberg and the san miguel but a load of rubbish. So the first night we spent a fortune drinking bottles at £4 a time and was rubbish becks. Entertainment, although choice of 3 hotels, nothing we enjoyed. Breakfast was nice but again no friendly atmosphere, couldn't wait to get out. Didn't stay at hotel 2nd day only to sleep. Stayed on the "front" all day. Lovely weather great pubs, the beefeater and the harvester, great food and great carling at under £3 a pint! That made our holiday. This hotel was way too overpriced, no friendly service and I wouldn't stay again :(
