We made an impromptu stopover as we drove past during a weekend visit to the area and thought it looked good. We were greeted by very professional and helpful staff who showed us our room which was stunning and really comfortable. We had a 3 year old who was also greeted in a friendly manner which continued during the duration of our stay. Staff couldn't do enough and dinner and breakfast were delicious (Eggs Benedict were yummy!). Good quality in-room toiletries (sorry - couldn't resist!) and refreshments (I only just managed to resist ;-). Complimentary port was a nice touch. Holkham is a stunning location with a beach and natural marsh and wildlife on the doorstop. Great that they were very dog friendly too. Looking forward to returning soon and often.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Standing at the gateway to Holkham and the National Nature Reserve, The Victoria is a classic English inn owned by the Coke family and managed by the Holkham Estate. There are ten elegant, indivually designed and stylish bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms. We are ready to welcome more guests in spring 2015 with the addition of a further ten bedrooms just across the road from The Victoria in one of the oldest buildings on the Holkham Estate: Ancient House. The building has been converted to provide ten additional bedrooms, including four spacious family room. The sympathetic refurbishment has retained many of the building's original features, combining authentic charm with luxurious modernity. The bar and dining rooms at The Vic offer a relaxed blend of style and comfort. We serve delicious locally sourced food, much of it grown and raised on the estate, with a bold emphasis on freshness, simplicity and value. Holkham has been a leading agricultural estate since the 1800's when Thomas William Coke bought the site and the young Queen Victoria elevated him to the peerage in recognition of his contribution to farming in 1837. The name of the proposed new inn must have been inevitable when it opened its doors in 1838. ... more less
