Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 March 2014

This lovely B&B offered great service, the owner was very friendly and really offered the personal touch. The rooms were nicely decorated and well equipped and it is situated in a great location, ideal for exploring the town & castle. Breakfast had a great selection and hot breakfast was delicious and cooked to order. Would highly recommend and would love to stay again.

I don't normally do reviews however this B & B was exceptional and needs recognition.
Set inside the castle walls from beginning to end the service from Jan and staff was exemplary. The whole place felt welcoming from the minute I arrived, the attention to detail was amazing. The room was immaculate and with china (not pot) cups and tea pot, the robes to use and the glass of wine on arrival the little touches were greatly appreciated.
The bed was very comfy and the rooms facilities were great. Breakfast didn't disappoint, great choice in cereal and breads and being able to toast your own was great. The cooked breakfast was lovely. Think if the hotel inspector stayed she would be saying, the price is amazing, and this place deserves 5 stars

Room Tip: I was in a front double and couldn't have had a better room.

I normally do not give a review of places but this B&B exceeded my expectations. The service and the room amenities are that of a 5 star hotel. Jan is very welcoming and really goes out of her way to be helpful. It was lovely to stay at Victoria House and we look forward to going back.

Room Tip: I would definitely recommend a room with a jacuzzi bath.

My Mum and I had a lovely stay at Victoria House on Saturday night, thanks to Jan and her team, who were so welcoming; we really felt looked after. Jan kindly took our bags to our room when we initially arrived, as we were running errands for a friend nearby, before returning at around 6:00pm, where we were welcomed with a glass of wine. Jan made sure that we were settled in, and knew where everythng was, and she helpfully recommended places to eat that evening. The house is absolutely beautiful; the bedrooms and the lounge and dining room cannot be faulted. The views over the Menai Straits are stunning, particularly from the Medieval wall at the rear of the house. The beds are large and extremely comfortable, and the rooms have everything you may need for a relaxing stay. The breakfast was cooked to perfection, we had huge pots of fresh coffee and tea, there were quality fruit juices and a good selection of other breakfast items. Like most reviewers, I felt it a shame that we were only staying for one night. Needless to say, we shall definitely return!
Thank you Jan - you are a fantastic hostess. We are already looking forward to our next visit, and we shall recommend Victoria House to our family and friends.

This is superb B & B. Very clean, friendly and accommodating owners, led by Jan who welcomed us with a glass of wine or a tea or coffee...whichever we preferred! Right in the town of Caernarfon. The room was large and beautifully furnished. We were upgraded to the Jacuzzi suite which was a nice touch. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice.

The wifi worked very well in our room..

We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed 1 night (7/1/14). Jan was an excellent host. We were made very welcome. Hot drinks and cakes on our arrival. Rooms certainly 5 stars. Highly recommended. Will certainly book again in the future.
