An update from Victorian House


After a long month of lockdown we are now under stronger restrictions than when we went in. As with the rest of 2020 we are doing our best to adapt and change to fit with these new rules put on us. Currently we are under tier 2 restrictions, please read below for information on the way we are reacting to being in this tier. 


Food and drink

With so much confusion around what constitutes a “substantial meal” we have decided not to risk our licence by selling our Neaum deli menu. This means that we will not be able to serve alcohol and not be staffing our bar area at all at any point during the day.

 Breakfast will be served as normal between the hours of 8am and 10am in our restaurant, we will be asking our guests to reserve times for breakfast so we can staff accordingly.


Check in and out

 Our check in times remain unchanged however we are changing how we staff these hours as we are no longer running our bar as we were. Our live-in team will be on hand to assist you during check in but they will only be there for your arrival. They will provide you with keys, information and wish you a great stay. These team members live on site and are contactable if you require any assistance. 

 If you have any queries do feel free to email or call us.


Housekeeping and cleanliness

 Our housekeepers will still be working hard to ensure that each room is sanitised thoroughly between uses as well as sanitising communal areas during your stay. 

 Daily housekeeping duties will be at request only, we will only enter your room during your stay with your expressed permission or in the case of an emergency. 


Tier 3 areas

Unfortunately with the stricter wording on tier 3 residents staying overnight outside of their local area we will not be accepting guests from tier 3 areas. We know this can be frustrating but we are trying to be compliant with current UK wide restrictions as well as our own. If you have already made a reservation we can rearrange your booking for later in December or for 2021.
