We’ve just returned from a magical week at The Victoria. I’ve been visiting to the hotel since I was a child and this year returned with my toddler.
Upon arrival we were greeted by Cliff, the head doorman, who has been there since I was little and were delighted to be told by the lovely staff on reception that our room was ready early – so we could really settle in straight away. We were very pleased with the room, which had recently been refurbished. Great size, lovely views and very comfortable beds.
The food served in the hotel is simply incredible – everything was cooked to perfection, whether it be toast in the morning or lamb in the evening... even the sandwiches at lunchtime are unforgettable!
We also ordered a meal from the kids menu for my toddler in the early evening. He loved everything he had and is now so used to the high standards of food served at The Victoria that he’s refusing to eat his usual dinners at home!
The facilities are great – the indoor and outdoor pool were very quiet during our visit so we often had them to ourselves. The putting green with its beautiful views over the coastline is immaculately kept. There’s plenty of room inside the hotel to sit down and relax and take in the surroundings. We were planning on visiting some of the other towns nearby during our visit but were so content and relaxed at The Victoria that we didn't touch our car at all.
Every single member of staff that we encountered were fantastic and so friendly - it’s nice to stay at a hotel where many of the staff have been working there for years.
To summarise; a fantastic hotel, wonderful staff, delicious food, great facilities and an incredible location – I’d recommend it to anyone.
We can’t wait for our next visit!
