Everything was wonderful, but I should explain that we were given an upgrade to a suite as our son had told management that it was our diamond wedding anniversary. The suite, the dinner (with band), the staff, all were excellent.

We had a great time at the Victoria, as usual. Food really is up to top standards these days, and the staff were absolutely magic. The rooms we had were comfortable and well cared for. Any complaints? Just one. We had to go home!

Only overnight stay this time but really great food and first class service by staff trying very hard to make a difference. We ate in the white room, more relaxed dress code bit no compromise on the menu. The hotel is quite old fashioned but it the room was spacious and spotless. We would definitely stay again

We have stayed many times at the Victoria, but on this occasion experienced a total lack of service from the lounge staff at lunch time. Having been seated for 10 minutes or more, and asking for the wine list, no-one approached us for an order although several other tables were being occupied, in the end we retreated to the bar,...

We recently took our 7 month baby for our first weekend away and couldn't have asked for more helpful or friendly staff. They were very accomodating, particularly at mealtimes as we passed the baby around family members whilst trying to eat! We felt very welcome wherever we took her!
