We have just come back from 2 nights at the Victoria. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Friendly staff. Peter showed us to our room & told us about the facilities of the hotel.
Breakfast was very good. Dinner was very tasty, but we could have done with slightly larger portions. We are all in favour of the hotel having a gentlemen's dress code of tie and jacket. Made a real event of dining.
We had a standard room, which was big enough with plenty of storage space. it was one of the cleanest rooms that we have ever stayed in. The cleaning staff has a very professional air to them, with uniforms rather than the standard jeans and a t-short. The en-suite was good sized and was very bright with lots of shelf space. The room was warm and very quiet.
Apart from the portion size mentioned above, only 2 relatively small criticisms. Some of the staff did not have too much English & it could be difficult getting them to understand questions. On Saturday the band playing in the sun lounge was far too loud to be able to have an easy conversation in the main lounge, but this is probably just our taste.
It was quite noticeable from the way that staff spoke to them that many of the guests had been coming for years, which says something out the hotel.
If the Victoria is typical of the Brend chain, then we are looking forward to visiting some of their other hotels in the north of Devon.
