I just wanted to thank all the staff at The Victoria Hotel,for the most perfect stay. Our room at the 'top of the house' so to speak, The Castle View Room,was absolutely stunning and the most perfect end to our visit 'up north'!!!
My new husband was thrilled to bits,gobsmacked I think is the word, as we walked through the door into the bedroom and saw two patio doors with nets, facing us - it's a brilliant ploy, as guests will immediately be drawn to the closed net curtains and as they open them, they will be rewarded with a fantastic prize, the view!!!!! It took our breath away.
We went for his 40th, and my only regret is that I'd not booked a longer stay, Bamburgh Castle was on full view from the balcony window and the surrounding areas were so picture perfect as well - I suggest you take some binoculars with you as there is so much to see from the top of the house!!!!!
The Victoria Brasserie was where we had our evening meal and the food was simply stunning. Tasty, beautifully presented, in very quirky and imaginative ways - which I love, and the staff working in the restaurant couldn't have been more helpful and very cheery. They even presented us with glasses of champagne as we'd just been married.
I passed on my compliments to the chef and the waiter made a point of coming back to me to tell me the chef was pleased I'd said something - makes all the difference I think when you work hard behind a closed door and don't get to see the reaction of your diners. Well thanks Mr Chef, I've even attempted the make the pea soup since we got back - no where near as tasty as yours but it shut Craig up for 20 minutes while he ate it haha!!!! So thanks for the coriander tip.
It was a wonderful stay and one we will remember for ever as it was perfection. You never know, I might be booking the Castle Room for our one year anniversary next year - unless Craig decides to surprise me and book us in at your hotel haha!!!
Thanks again for a wonderful stay, I can honestly say, it made our trip
lots of love
