We chose Victoria House for location and after reading reviews decided that even though there were other options down the road, this would be the most comfortable. We arrived early afternoon and found it hard to find reception. There was a driveway at the side of the building but no signs, well atleast we couldn't see them. We parked on the street as the gardeners were in and we were unable to get into the carpark. A lady directed us to the reception entry. We were greeted by a delightful man and check in went very smoothly. We were given directions to our room. All rooms appeared to be on the next floor up with no lift. It was OK for us, but worth considering if you are not able to carry your bags to your room up the flight of steps. We had a wotif package so therefore had a lovely suite (The best suite - the Windsor). This room had lovely chesterfield lounges and a nice big bed. The room had a balcony overlooking the back carpark. The sun was shining and we wished we had more time to sit out there in the sun. There is a cupboard that houses a sink, fridge, plunger coffee as well as a mini bar in the fridge. You really had everything you need. In the bathroom was a large spa with the shower in the bath. So again, if you have problems climbing into a bath for a shower, it is worth considering asking if they are all like that (There were a couple of steps to assist). There were loads of towels, nice quality toiletries and the basin was housed in a lovely federation vanity. To our surprise there was no curtain or blind on the window. Whilst this did not bother my hubby, I was very uncomfortable as we could see into the neighbours window (and they into ours) and if we looked into the mirror we could see all the traffic on the highway. We didn't have time to bring this to the attention of the staff as we were in a hurry to get to a wedding. We mentioned it the next morning and they were surprised so I have faith it will be addressed. I solved the problem by sticking up a couple of pieces of newspaper. Worked for me. We couldn't have had a better night sleep. The rooms are quite cold as they are brick, but there is a nice big reverse cycle heater/cooler. We had a nice warm blanket on the bed and although we didn't need them, there was an electric blanket also. We were very comfortable. Our package included a cooked breakfast. We decided to have this downstairs in the dining room. I am glad we did. We met the cook and she cooked whatever we wanted. The breakfast was amazing. The dining room is small and doubles as a bar. It has the feel of a B&B as does the whole hotel. It is very warm and hospitable. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean. There are the odd cobwebs but it didn't worry us as we could see they take pride in doing everything elsevery well. There were not many guests when we were there, we were the only ones in the dining room but they will take your breakfast to your room. I would definatley stay here again should we need to. It had a lovely feel and the staff are lovely.
