We have stayed at this hotel over a number of years and always look forward to our visits. Our recent stay was 3 nights over the Valentine week-end and we could not fault any aspect of it. Our room was sumptuous, the beds were so comfortable and everything was spotlessly clean. We also had a beautiful view to the sea...

Called for a lunchtime treat. Hadn't visited here since 1993. Forgot how good it is. Enjoyed a good meal and wine. Very friendly service from a lady who was serving in the lounge bar overlooking the sea. Some areas seem to have undergone a recent refurbishment including the ladies cloakrooms which were immaculate. A very enjoyable experience.

We had a lovely mid week break at the Victoria Hotel. Our room had a wonderful view over the sea with excellent facilities. We enjoyed the spa and swimming pool and thoroughly enjoyed our meals in the restaurant. The staff were helpful and attentive. The only negative point was the wifi was poor.

I was really disappointed by this hotel. I stay in lots for business and thought this would be up there with the best. I was very wrong! Reasons - 1. The car park was small and difficult to manoeuvre around. 2. Room fixtures were old and in need of a desperate update. 3. The shower just leaked onto me, the...

We visited during refurbishment of the main Dining room. We had a very good time, it was very pleasant in the temporary dining room ( the lounge), overlooking the putting course and sea. All the staff where excellent as usual, they are very well trained. Looking forward to visiting again soon.

We enjoyed a two night break last week, wished we had booked for longer. We had been recommended the Victoria by friends and it did not disappoint.

The Victoria is perfect for our occasional mini-breaks. At age 81 and being disabled, the comfort and luxury of the accommodation is valued and much appreciated. I have no suggestions for improvement; the staff are calm, efficient and courteous, and always ready to help if they see it necessary. The chef even prepared a suitable dessert,, me being a diabetic.
