As soon as you arrive at the Victoria, you know you are going to be well looked after. Drive into the entrance and you are met by the porter as you get out of the car and he carries in your luggage without being asked. Check in was equally easy and we were very pleased with our room. Yes, small for the money, but completely modernised, very nicely furnished and newly decorated, The weather helped by being warm, sunny and clear. In the past we have had less than perfect rooms but this time it had one of the best views in the hotel. All the staff are delightful and go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your stay. We also thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at a great table, again with a sea view. For a hotel, rather than a gourmet (and expensive) restaurant, the food was excellent, the lamb being especially good, the ambience very good (with background quartet) and the service great.. We like the little touches, such as the welcome back flowers in our room and the wine waiter checking to see if we wanted brandies with our after-dinner coffee in the lounge (which we did). Next morning we had a needle match on the putting green, having enjoyed a very good breakfast, promptly served and well presented. This is a hotel that will not disappoint and we shall continue to go back for regular short visits, as long as they continue to look after their guests so well. It is pricey, but then so is any occasional treat!
