Tea/ coffee and hot chocolate were available in the room with biscuits. There were also toiletries provided in the bathroom. There was no noise over... More

We live in a time where the sharing economy is getting bigger and bigger, companies like Uber, AirBnB and Couchsurfing are thriving in todays consumer environment. This trend must have negative consequences for hotels, because AirBnB's and Couchsurfing generally offer rooms to a more affordable rate than hotels. The only way the hotel industry can counter this is by providing... More

VEGETARIANS BEWARE! If, instead of several slices of expensive meat, from the Carvery, you choose the veggie option, you will get a MUCH CHEAPER piece of microwaved nutroast (very tasty) and some veggie gravy -but you will be charged an extra £1 for it!

well, the victoria hotel was the only one left since the ttown was booked solid. However I would not use it again. A bit old and not really kept up to date rooms. Service allright but nothing special and the breakfast is overpriced. The restaurant is not worth a detour.
