We first stayed at the Victoria over twenty years ago and have returned many times since.
It's been a five year gap since our last visit, and what doesn’t change? So with some trepidation we returned for a weekend hoping that we would not be disappointed, and that the "Old Girl" would still be as we remembered. She was, in fact from the usual friendly welcome at reception to the reassurance that several of the staff we remembered were still there, all was as we remembered and good as before!
The Victoria retains the quality, elegance and sense of old fashioned tradition and heritage that you seldom find in today’s "modern box" hotels. Our room (204) was superb, fantastically comfortable huge bed, massive bathroom with his and hers basins, large bath and separate shower cubicle. Wonderful views of the sea and splendid gardens. Fresh fruit, flowers and everything one could want made our all too short break special.
The wonderful gardens and pool area are still as we remembered. Fortunate to have good weather we relaxed sunbathed and swam, virtually alone. With the children back in school, the average age of our fellow residents was quite senior. The putting green must have the finest view in England, which may account for how I lost to my wife who never plays!
The dining room was again as attractive as ever. Food over two nights "table d hote" was very good with local produce to the fore and quite impeccable service. Marvelous wine list! In fact all the staff from the hall porters, waiters, receptionists to management were all amenable and asked repeatedly "how we were" were we enjoying ourselves" etc Wife on mentioning that she was going to our room for a cup of tea, was immediately asked would you like fresh milk sent up to your room, which arrived within minutes!
Attmitidly the Vic does cater for the older more affluent clientele. With a huge percentage of guests returning time after time. Reassured that in this age of plastic / fast food / box hotels the Victoria stand’s out. Retaining its air of refined grandeur that we love and find so reassuring.

Well done Brend Hotels the Victoria is a credit to you and a place we continue to love. Like a famous American general once said “we will return”.

Room Tip: 204 is a fabulous suite with wonderful sea views and fantastic facilites.

Despite our initial feeling that the price per person rate was a somewhat devious way of overcharging for a double room, this is a hotel that actually delivers on everything you would hope for and expect for £400 a night.

The Victoria just oozes old-world charm, and quite clearly the staff have been trained to put the customer at the very centre of their world. The rooms are elegant, the beds large and comfortable and the food is excellent.

I also liked the allocated table arrangement in the dining room. We stayed two nights, and were reluctant to leave - expensive but worth it. We'll be back.

A last minute confusion with a B and B in Wales led me to book 4 nights here instead - I was not disappointed. The food and service were amazing and nothing was too much for the friendly staff.
