“Great experience!”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

Tops in hospitality! Lovely old building, comfortable rooms, convenient to everything, great breakfast, hospitality beyond compare. The free treats (there's a fridge stocked with water, sodas, beer and wine and a table full of goodies) were a much-appreciated touch. The seaside wall is a wonderful place to watch the sunset; the common room is a cozy place for games. The owner is knowledgeable and friendly. A wonderful stay!

Room Tip: The sea view room is lovely, but does require climbing 2 flights of stairs.

When we arrived at this B&B, the owner told us that there had been a cancellation and she upgraded both our rooms (we were travelling with another couple) to larger rooms - ours was at the front of the house overlooking the street and was just lovely. I thought it was very kind for the owner to give us the larger rooms as she did not have to do that. The house is clean, comfortable and elegant, and perfectly situated for sightseeing but on a quiet street to ensure a restful night. We sat out on the deck on the town wall in the evening which was lovely. The breakfast was excellent. We saw the rooms we were originally booked for, and while smaller they were just as nice. I only wished we had booked more than one night at this B&B and used the town as a centre for visiting other places. You can't go wrong with this terrific bed & breakfast. We were easily able to park our two cars out in front as well.

Room Tip: No tips required - all the rooms are beautiful.

Beautiful, clean and quiet location. Comfortable room with a nice bed, a large, modern bathroom and tasteful decoration. The food was excellent and the owner, Jan, was friendly, helpful and attentive. Excellent spot for sightseeing, shopping or just relaxing. Would stay here again and I recommend the Victoria House to anyone wanting to travel to Caernarfon.

Room Tip: Our room was facing the street and we like to keep our windows open at night resulting in some noise...

My hubby and I stayed here for a weekend in May . everything about Victoria House is First class.The rooms are absolutely fabulous and immaculately clean.The breakfast was lovely and plentiful.The lounge is lovely and there are free snacks and biscuits on offer as well as complimentary wine and beer in the fridge. Jan is a lovely warm person who can't do enough for you and went out to collect our chinese takeaway and even brought it up to our room on a tray.We will be back again next year and we would recommend Victoria House to anyone who wants somewhere lovely to stay.Everything is of top quality here and it's worth every penny. Thank you Jan and your mum for our wonderful stay with you.
lots of love.
Anne and Rob.

Room Tip: All the rooms are beautiful but the room at the front facing the street is a must.

Quite easily the best B&B we have stayed in in Wales. Centrally located in Caernarfon in a beautiful street adjacent to the city walls the houses look like period mews houses but are much bigger inside. Our room is large even with the en-suite with views over the city walls and a tower. There is a downstairs lounge with doors to the courtyard garden and stairs up to the city wall where there is a private verandah and deck chairs for guests to relax and gaze over the bay and watch the sun go down. Absolutely stunning! Words cannot describe how great this is. The patron is wonderful. Very happy and smiley, made us tea and welsh cakes upon arrival and even offered to do our washing rather than direct us to a launderette which was what we asked for. Complimentary nibbles, crisps, alcoholic drinks (in a fridge), tea and coffee in the lounge. Room has tea and coffee making facilities with biscuits and a small fridge with a jug of fresh milk. Breakfast was delicious - cooked, cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurt, cold meats and breads.
Highly recommend this b&b. However when we went for a walk into town we noticed in an estate agents window that the house and business is for sale. The owner when we stayed was Jan.

Room Tip: Room 2 has views over the back garden , castle walls and tower.

My wife and I stayed here for a night as a stopover between Dublin and Betws-y-Coed. We got in super late but Jan was ready and got us all settled in with a warm welcome and recommendations on a late snack since we'd missed our dinner (she offered to make us something but we felt really bad about being so late and didn't want to take advantage). The room we had was just amazing, so roomy and comfortable - and the bed was where I had the best night of sleep all trip! Both of us wished we'd booked more time here! The breakfast in the morning was also wonderful and cooked to order. We will definitely be stopping in again if we make it back over for another visit from the US.

My husband & I stayed for four nights in June 2014 & it was a pleasure to stay here. Jan & the team are lovely & the b&b is spotlessly clean & the room was spacious & of a very high standard. Whilst a bit worried about the parking, this wasn't an issue as Jan was very informative on best places to park & also where to eat (got to say best breakfast we had whilst travelling around Wales)! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this b&b & will definitely stay here again when in North Wales. Best wishes Bill & Wendy.x

Room Tip: We stayed in room 5 but they all looked v good!
