“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2014

My husband and I had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Victoria Hotel and stayed for an extended weekend with friends and family. The location is stunning and the weather was amazing for November. The accommodation was great with each room being very individual. The day itself was perfect and everything ran like clockwork. Andrew and his staff could not have done more. The day was tailored to us and was everything and more than we hoped for. The food was excellent, perhaps the portions were even too big, if that is a bad thing! The staff were always helpful and nothing was an issue even when we miscalculated the number of people for dinner or when I locked the key in the room again. We will definitely visit again and can highly recommend the hotel whether for an event or just a general visit.

We have stayed in the Victoria several times before and this last trip was even better than previous visits.

The hotel is sited at the top of Robin Hoods Bay with the most glorious views. There is a private car park conveniently located at the rear of the hotel. The building itself is imposing and the welcome awaiting you is warm and friendly. All rooms are large, beautifully decorated and some have sea views. We stayed in a room with a balcony, decorated in the most elegant. calming manner. Toiletries, bottles of water, towelling robes provided in the rooms make your stay even more comfortable.

The restaurant and the tea room are well decorated and comfortable and the food is well cooked and plentiful. All the staff are professional, friendly and pleasant and nothing is too much trouble.
They advise you on the local area and see that all your needs are met.

Would we stay again. Without a doubt! We will be back to enjoy the walks, the scenery, the friendly folk and the peace and quiet later in the year.

Room Tip: All the rooms are well decorated and have their own personality so you cannot go wrong. Choose if yo...

Our second visit to the Victoria, and found it every bit as good as the first, if anything the standard of attention to detail and customer care was even higher than before. A different room this time but also tastefully furnished to a very good standard and very comfy. No bath in this room (Room 2) but a spacious high quality shower reflecting the recently refurbished nature of the room generally.

Unfortunately the restaurant was closed in the evening this week while the kitchen was being refitted but a more limited menu was available in the bar, to be enjoyed with a decent selection of beers.

In contrast to the bad review posted a few days earlier, the locals were a very good bunch and well up for a bit of friendly 'banter' which, along with the warmth of the log fire, made the evening in the bar one to remember (a horrible windy/wet evening outside)

Breakfast was superb with copious portions and quality produce (the black pudding, sourced locally, is divine!)

All the staff we came into contact with were friendly and clearly took a pride in ensuring they gave good service, customer satisfaction is clearly at the top of the agenda at the Victoria

All in all an excellent break, highly recommended!! We will return :)

We did not stay at the Victoria but together with our friends, we booked a New Years Eve meal in the hope of something special. We certainly got special, a very special meal in a room which was dressed for the new year, some special service and a special atmosphere.
We even had a young 4 piece band of superb musicians who played and sang some great songs and entertained us royally.
If this is an example of the food on offer I urge you to try it.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2013

We stayed at this hotel for 2 days leading up to Christmas. It is a superb place to stay. The staff are very friendly without being in your face. The bathroom had been cleaned to perfection. The bedroom was large and spotless.

The food was very good and the whole atmosphere was friendly and warm When the weather is better we will have a few more days here and explore the NorthEast Yorkshire coast.

Would recommend this hotel to everyone. One warning though, the size of the potions are large. We couldn't manage a starter and main course and pudding. Breakfasts set you up for the rest of the day.

Room Tip: Go for a sea view if possible. They are all large rooms.

We had 2 night stay after our wedding and were treated like royalty. The hotel has a wonderful vibe full of charm adding to the romance. Fantastic rooms with amazing views which can even be seen without getting out of bed. Rooms are spotless and comfortable.
Food fab well cooked and presented, onion rings like I've never eaten before, make sure your hungry though typical Yorkshire portions, huge. Excellent choice.
Staff are so friendly, approachable and will bend over backwards to make sure your every need is catered for, nothing is too much trouble.
Very highly recommended and will be going again. Perfect romantic getaway.
