Stayed for two nights B&B with one evening meal £350. What a mistake we made not reading trip advisor before going! Room 42 was out of this world-no heating on first night and weak water pressure being its only faults. The rest of the hotel needs a good clean and kick up the b*** Staff are disinterested and the grumpiest people especially the breakfast staff. We had the cheek to ask for a glass of water this morning! The breakfast is of the 'service station' variety and very unimaginative. We were told by the assistant manager there was an alternative menu but were never offered this or indeed saw anyone else having this option. Dinner at night was overpriced and very poor for vegetarians and we thought we'd gone back in time-all we needed was a sign pointing us out going by the staffs reactions to us'You're the vegetarians!' We were told the Manager was on holiday-hope he wasn't staying in The Victoria as he'd be having an awful time! We'd recommend the room in a heart beat but the rest NO WAY!
