First class hotel

Posted 13-Sep-2016
Pros: The food,the service,the quiet,in fact everything.
Cons: Perhaps some handles by the bath for older people.
Location: Right at the end of the esplanade,plenty of small businesses and some well known ones as well,just a couple of minutes walk away.
Beautiful Edwardian building in its own grounds,with views of bay and town.wonderful lounge full of sofas and easy chairs or there's the sun lounge over looking the garden to the sea.

Nice hotel, but early wake-up noise!

Posted 07-Jun-2016
A return weekend getaway to the hotel where my wife said "yes" to my marriage proposal! Almost all things you'd expect from a 4* hotel, but they put us in room 101 and got woken up around 6am each morning by mechanical noise (extractors from kitchen or A/C?). Complained after 1st night and was assured it was a water pump that they could turn off, so they didn't offer us an alternative room. Other than that slip-up, staff very attentive. Just don't let them put you in room 101, which is on corner above all the service rooms/kitchen.

November w/end

Posted 30-Nov-2015
Pros: The location, the staff, the overall condition of the hotel and the catering.
Cons: The room heating could be more easily adjusted. The room temperatures are kept quite high for the older guests.
Location: Overlooking the beach, about 8 mins walk from the centre of Sidmouth.In November most summer attractions are closed but the nearby walks are excellent
A very comfortable hotel close to the beach and town. It was fully decorated for Xmas and looked lovely. The pool and spa looked excellent although we didn't use it. The food was very good.

Very impressed

Beautiful hotel. Great facilities, helpful staff and excellent food. My only disappointment was that the single room I was in was very small and very hot. There was no aircon and the window could only open a fraction. A fan was available and left in the wardrobe so they had thought about the issue.

Rest & Relaxation par excellence!

Posted 14-Nov-2014 on Hotels
A weekend stay to wrap up two weeks annual leave and retirement! Wonderfully relaxing as well as invigorating. Strong winds and some rain were balanced with balmy sunshine and it was warm enough to sit out without a coat on! Food and service were as excellent as on my previous visits.

Great place for luxury and service

We had a superb three nights at the Victoria - not long enough as it was an excellent hotel, very comfortable, great food, and very friendly and polite staff - could not fault it at all. Recommended to us by friends and we can see why. Will be going back again.

I'll return again ...............

Having had such a great experience in June I decided, very much at the last minute, to return to the hotel. It was as good as before plus the fact that I was welcomed back! Looking forward already to my next trip!
