Victoria House B&B
Ranked #1 of 21 Caernarfon B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 9, 2010

This lovely B&B has a jacuzzi in the spacious en-suite bathroom. We found the beds comfortable and the room delightful, clean and spotless. The WiFi connection is faultless. The personal touch of Jan (and her team) made our stay a true home away from home and we musn't forget to mention her mom, Betty, who simply doted on our 10 year old. Breakfast was delicious and satisfying and kept us going well past lunch. There are numerous restaurants within walking distance of the Victoria House. Morrisons is also some 5 minutes drive away, so one need never go hungry. We would highly recommend this B&B to anyone visiting Caenarfon.

You Will Never Walk Alone Jan!

My partner and I spent two nights at The Victoria House during our short break to North Wales. Having read, and been very impressed with, the reviews before booking we chose this guest house and were certainly not disappointed. We'd booked the top floor room with a spa bath and it was gorgeous. We've stayed in many different types of accommodation over the years, from basic to plush and I can honestly say that this is one of the nicest we've stayed in, especially at that price.
Not only was the room very comfortable but Jan and her mum made us feel most welcome and breakfast was excellent. I have never before felt the need to review a hotel on Trip Advisor but wanted to this time, if only to let Jan know how much we enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended.

Before we had even got to the Victoria House I was sure we'd made the right decision. Jan emailed to ask about drinks we'd like in the rooms, details of each room and confirmed our booking. We arrived to fresh orange juice in the little room fridge which was lovely.

The room was great, stylish with all mod-cons and the bathroom had a spa bath which was fun. Friends of ours were staying at the local Premier Inn hotel - they paid more than we did and didn't even get breakfast included. If you want a personal service and lovely place to stay I'd recommend the Victoria House instead.

Have you ever met a freezer in the room? And a dozen of candles for your romantic evening? A spa bath? And a set for shoe-polishing? I've - not once. And I'm so grateful to Tripadvisor commentators who rated this hotel, it is realy a pearl of Wales. Staying there was a pleasure.

There are two double rooms with spa baths in the House, we and our friend occupied the both, and did not regret.

DVD collection is good, and complimentary drinks warmed my heart, and - what is the most important thing for me, - the bed is VERY comfortable. Warm, soft, cosy.

Hostess is so nice and welcoming, I really sorry that I live so far to come there again...
