Temporary Closure of Victorian House

For the second time this year we announce the temporary closure of Victorian House due to the new restrictions coming into place as of Thursday 5th of November. We apologise to all of our guests that had bookings during this time. Although Victorian House will remain temporarily closed we hope to welcome you back from 2nd December. Please note that we will continue to take bookings for future stays during this time and provide fully cancellable reservations.

Looking back over this year it has been a real rollercoaster. We have closed and opened the Victorian House 3 times in 12 months. First for refurbishment and the others due to Covid-19. For a business that is 9 months old we have been through a lot but want to thank our wonderful guests who have stayed with us during this time.

As with the last lockdown we will take this time to reflect, plan and improve our offering to you all. We look forward to seeing you all again and will continue to have a safe, relaxed and beautiful hotel for you to return to in the not too distant future. Please note that we will continue to take bookings for future stays during this time and provide fully cancellable reservations. 

Stay safe and look after yourselves. The mountains, lakes and Victorian House will be here to welcome you in a few weeks time. 

Love, the Victorian House team.
