Reviewed October 9, 2013

We stayed here in August 2013, from the first moment we arrived Jan and her staff could not have been more helpful. The rooms were spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated with a great range of accessories. Everything was of the highest quality. With slippers and gowns in the wardrobe, a massive array of toiletries in the bathroom and a superb choice of drinks in the room, as well as complimentary wine and soft drinks in the lounge. Breakfast was a great start to the day, with every type of hot and cold choices available. Excellently cooked and served. Nothing was too much trouble. I will definitely stay again and would have no hesitation in recommending this B&B.

It is a priviledge to be welcomed into Jan's beautiful home. The rooms are beautifully decorated, beds and pillows so comfortable - lovely added touches throughout. Jan is a perfect hostess (ably assisted by her daughter) - breakfast is great, spoilt for choice. Our room had a lovely view over The Menai Straits.The setting is wonderful, within the old walls of the town, central to everything. This is the best B&B that we have ever stayed in, highly recommended - we can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: One top floor room has stunning view over Menai Straits

We stayed two nights in September, almost a year after our first visit to Victoria House. Our room was top notch and the service could not have been friendlier. They even helped with dinner reservations. The location was within walking distance of the castle and we enjoyed touring it one sunny morning (climbed to the top and watched the tide come in - or was it going out?). When you visit Caernarfon, this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: If visiting on a weekend, make dinner reservations early.

Jan truely goes beyond what is required to make her guests comfortable. Our room was very comfortable with lots of nice touches. If you don't mind climbing the stairs get the room on the top floor that looks out over the castle wall to the sea. The view is amazing! I was in the UK for 20 days and met only 2 superstars of the B&B business and Jan is one.

Jan and the team have made every possible effort to make the place and your trip perfect. There are so many touches and attention paid to detail it is unreal. Looking at the reviews this was the only and the obvious place to stay in Caernarfon.

The Victoria House is in a great location and is absolutely beautiful. The room was enormous, and the king-size bed with memory foam mattress was a real treat! Having a mini-fridge in the room was a nice touch. Jan is super friendly, as is the rest of the staff. And breakfast was delicious!

If there is any negative aspect to staying at the Victoria House it is that other B&B's will pale in comparison! (The next place we stayed in Oxford seemed like a youth hostel than the posh accommodations we had just enjoyed!)

While it is tempting to give the Victoria House one star, just to make this review stand out from the crowd, that would be a lie. This is the best B&B we've ever stayed at, and have stayed here four times since 2006. Jan is a great host, she always has good suggestions for places to eat, and serves an excellent full Welsh breakfast (complete with black pudding if you like) or lighter options including continental or Welsh Rarebit. The location is also quite good for exploring North Wales or visiting the Welsh Highland Railway. One room on the top floor looks out over the Menai Straights towards Anglesey, and the other rooms are a bit bigger and have Jacuzzi tubs. We tried one of the bigger rooms this time but personally I missed the view. I've also never had any trouble finding a parking spot on the street, and there is also public parking nearby.

Room Tip: Please don't ask for the view room as I would like it to be available next time we stay!
