Didn't Want to Leave!
“Didn't want to leave! Really lovely hospitable staff combined with a warn, friendly ambience made it home away from home. The interior deco is stylish without being formal. Although it's in town, it was quiet and we slept well. The pop up Pizza idea was fun and delicious. Hope to be back”
A fabulous find
“Booked a couple of nights away last minute and this is one of the loveliest places we've stayed. Bed Kingdom so comfy, the shower really good and the food was delicious Staff were brilliant and attentive throughout! Overall, a top find!”
Beautiful hotel
"We loved Victorian House hotel, its a beautiful property. We have 3 adult children and booked 3 rooms that were interconnected via fire escape. The public areas are very comfortable and enjoyed a pre dinner gin in the conservatory each night. Breakfast delicious, great service from all the staff. Very intimate and cosy surroundings. Lovely complimentary brownies after a hard day's walking! Really hope to return soon. Thankyou all"
