Victoria House B&B
Ranked #1 of 21 Caernarfon B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 January 2014

Victoria House B&B is like a 5 star hotel. The rooms are large and beautifully appointed, reflecting Welsh culture eg tapestries on walls. Cleanliness was faultless, even the windows sparkle. The attention to detail in every way is outstanding. Jan is a wonderful hostess, very welcoming and a wealth of information on the area, but not in any way cloying. The B&B is inside the medieval walls of Old Caernarfon, just metres from the castle. Food was delicious and breakfast was beautifully presented. Warm hospitality in every way. This B&B is a cut above our other accommodation in Britain and a "must" if you are visiting this town.

From the moment we walked into Victoria House, we were treated like royalty, offered coffee, tea, wine and warm mince pies.

The room was very comfortable and every little detail (and more) has been taken care off.
Jan, the owner, was the perfect host, friendly, warm and knowledgeable about Caernarfon.

I can't find any fault, the only regret is that we only stayed one night.

I don't normally write reviews but on those occasion I had too about Victoria House and its fantastic host Jan.
This is by far the best B&B I have ever stayed in.

Jan is the best host anyone could ask for. On arrival Tea and extras and goes out of her away from here on in. I was ill during my stay and she was fantastic in sourcing meds for me.
Complimentary drinks also in the fridge for guests.

House is so clean and modern, the room was quite nice. Location is brilliant also.

If your looking for a B&B that ticks all boxes & more Victoria House is it.
11/10 if I could rate this.

We are by no means experts in hotels and bed and breakfast.We stayed there for 2 night for a new year break.
we have travelled through out the far east and we believe that we have stayed in some fab properties. The Victoria in Caernarfon is up there with the best. The attention to detail that Jan (land lady) is unbelievable as she has created the gold standard in accommodation.
When we arrived Jan offered us a mince pie with a glass of wine, beer or a cup of tea. The room we booked was the spa room and it did not disappoint with complementary fresh coffee, bath robes and slippers.
Our breakfast in the morning again was without fault as it was a range of fruit yogurt, cereal before a fully cooked quality breakfast.
We cannot recommend this establishment highly enough.

My husband and I traveled here in May and we had an absolutely perfect stay!! This is by far our favorite bed and breakfast ever and we have been comparing all of our stays with it since. Our room was clean, spacious and the bed incredibly comfortable! The mattress was so plush along with the sheets and comforter. The breakfast was fresh and delicious too! The owners are a delightful family who are so very kind and make such a difference in your stay - I wish there were more people in the world like them! It's also in a perfect location on the water and close walking distance to town and to the castle - even part of the old castle wall is part of the B&B property. Parking is a little tricky but again the owners help you tremendously and there really is no need to stress over making it work. We can't thank you enough for such a great stay - I'm sorry it took me so long to write this review!! :)

Had to get lucky for parking, but how great being inside the old city walls, literally just down the street from the old castle. Loved the room and the breakfast. Jan was friendly and accommodating. Pubs and restaurants within easy distance. Had a view from our window out over the cit wall to the waters of the Menai Straight.
