This must have been our fourth visit to the Victoria Hotel and, as usual, we were delighted with our visit. The staff are welcoming, friendly and helpful, the decor of the hotel is superb and the food is absolutely top notch. Thank you, Victoria and all of the staff, for making our brief stay so very pleasant.

Recently took a mid week break with my brother and sister-in-law and from the moment we entered the hotel we knew this was a very well managed establishment and we were going to enjoy a very pleasant break. Our rooms were sea facing and with multi windows, enhanced the outward vista and the room itself. Evening dinner and each subsequent...

This was our second visit and the hotel really is a very special place. The public rooms are beautiful; traditional elegance with a gorgeous sea view. The spa seems new and, again, excellent. Mostly we had it to ourselves. Subtle lighting and a lovely pool. Our only negative is that this area still feels a little cool for a spa....

We visited the hotel for Lunch on Mother's Day and then the next Saturday for dinner. Mother's Day lunch was in the main dining room. The service was great and the food was even better. Very good value for money and the ladies loved the free rose. The Saturday visit was to the White Room. It has a classic menu...

We stayed 26-28 March as a treat for my 70th birthday. This included Mother's Day so the family joined us for lunch. We were all impressed with the quality of the food and the efficient staff. The ladies were presented with a pink rose and the petals already turning brown which was a disappointment. The next day members of our...

We had a lovely room on the first floor with a balcony overlooking the sea. The room was a good size with a seating area to watch the TV. The pool which is indoor is warm and great for a swim, there is an outdoor pool for the summer but not the winter. The food was excellent and the staff...

My family treated me to the most lovely Mothering Sunday lunch at the Victoria. As ever the food was sublime, the service exemplary ( and the fizz was pretty good too!). This really is a first class hotel - might have to try afternoon tea next!
