3 of us stayed this weekend at the Victoria Inn. The staff were so friendly as were the locals. We were very happy with our rooms, all very clean. So sorry we didn't get to meet Michael as he was on holiday but as I said the staff were marvellous. Thank you all. One of our ladies couldn't walk very far so it was taxis wherever we had to go to, not the Victoria's fault. She also found it very difficult getting in to the shower as there was no grab rails in the bath, however no other complaints. Many thanks to you all for a lovely stay.
I visited the hotel for a birthday with family staying in four of the hotels rooms. It was a lovely quaint little hotel rooms where lovely and clean. Location was close to the town centre. The hotels owners where lovely and friendly and really made the stay very pleasant. Definitely would return.
When booking accommodation I always check reviews on Trip Advisor. Sometimes the reviews don’t match expectations. Booked the Victoria through Booking.com and we were given the impression that breakfast was included in the price, especially since there was reviews about the great breakfast. Unfortunately we discovered they no longer do breakfasts. This was disappointing. We had to traipse into town every morning to find a cafe. Our room was comfortable although very noisy, being situated next to the road. Although the room appeared clean, certain areas were overlooked such as the glass surfaces on the bedside cabinets and dressing table and the glass shelf in the bathroom. The shower was awful and alternated between hot, tepid and cold. You also had to crouch down under it. All in all an okay but not outstanding stay.…
This is a really unusual pub because it is 'unspoilt by modernisation'. There are 3 small cosy bars, almost like being in someone's front room, lots of Victoriana - portraits, photographs, Staffordshire porcelain - which feel natural rather than 'themed'. And Michael who runs it is so friendly. The location was excellent for weekend tourism - only two minutes walk from Kingsgate bridge to the Cathedral Close and with several restaurants nearby. The double room was quite small, not the sort of room with easy chairs to sit in, but you have the choice of bars downstairs so you don't need it. There wasn't any breakfast when we were there because the chef had left, but we found a delicious coffee bar called Leonards recommended by Michael's son.
We've recently returned from a break in Durham and used the Victoria Inn as our base. It's like stepping back in a time capsule to an authentic Northern pub (this is meant as a complement). The location is superb for the city centre but this comes with a catch. Parking is available, if a little on the tight side and we were given a friendly welcome. The landlord gave us a bottle of wine on departure as we mentioned that we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. This was totally unprompted and very much appreciated. The room itself was clean, well furnished, if a little on the small side Now the catch. The pub is in the heart of the student quarter and the after hours noise was considerable. The noise from the pub we could cope with, but the noise from the street at 2am and later was considerable. A few thoughless individuals but with windows open because of the temperature, it meant an interrupted night's sleep. Plus the room we were in had two windows and whilst one window had a curtain the other one didn't. Unfortunately this was the one with a street light outside, which shone through all night until it became light at 4am. It didn't totally spoil our visit and the Victoria Inn had many positive points but if the acid test is "would you stay there again?" then I'm not sure we would, simply for this reason. However if you have earplugs, it's winter, or it's the end of term and the students have gone home, then this would definitely be worth considering.…
