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

Posted 25-Jul-2015 on Hotels
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!

Very disappointing for a 4* hotel

Posted 25-Jul-2014
Pros: Not much
Cons: Staff attitudes
We went for a 20th wedding anniversary celebration and were very disappointed. We had no indication on booking that a jacket was required for men at dinner - and despite my husband being dressed very smartly we were turned away from dinner in a very rude manner and told to eat in the bar (which was empty of both staff and patrons). Information in the room suggested that the hotel could provide jackets but this was not the case. The bed was uncomfortable, and the bathroom not of 4* standard. The hotel seems to be aimed at older patrons - for example we couldn't have breakfast before 8am even on a weekday, and the pools were closed until 8am in the morning. The whole place seemed stuffy and unwelcoming.

A room with a view!

Posted 25-Jun-2014 on Hotels
Wow! a single room with an amazing view enhanced by blue skies and bright sunshine. The hotel is elegant and the restaurant serves excellent food. The staff are friendly but not intrusive. My only complaint was the constant dripping of the shower and a towel rail which could not be turned off. Would I stay again? ABSOLUTELY!

Old fashioned and charming

Posted 28-Feb-2014 on Hotels
Not what i was expecting, very old fashioned (jacket and tie for dinner etc.) and i must have halved the average age of the typical guest by being there (I’m 39) but a charming and relaxing stay. In fact the only disappointment was the room which felt a little dated but i did have one of the cheaper rooms at the rear. The sea facing rooms are probably a lot better quality. Food was very good; service was excellent (always polite and smiling staff) and a lovely view from the main lounge of the sea and coastline.
