Lots of good things about the Victoria. The bar with the log fire, the cosy dining area, the light-filled breakfast room. All very pleasant. Relaxed family atmosphere. Dog-friendly. Free upgrade to a four- poster room. Friendly staff. It was a bitterly cold night so we asked for extra blankets. An extra duvet was delivered promptly and cheerfully and was much appreciated. The room was quiet, the bed comfortable with crisp cotton sheets. The shower over the bath worked perfectly. Could have done with a non-slip mat, but didn't notice this in time to ask. Things that could be better - the decor upstairs is a bit tired, especially the carpets. Couldn't find a mirror that was lit well enough lit and close enough for doing make-up - not a big problem but it was a special occasion. The breakfast - impressive full vegetarian breakfast, complete with sausages and asparagus. The melon had a chemical taste (tinned?) and the coffee wasn't great. There's a better coffee machine in the bar. It was a bit disappointing have the buffet cleared away soon after we'd started. Meant we couldn't change our minds about things (the melon for instance). We'd come down half an hour before the end of breakfast time. Was that too late? If there was a rating between 'average' and 'very good' I'd choose that. It's above average but not yet very good. I'm sure they're working on it.
