From start to finish Victoria Court offers a good service and value for money. The owner, David Johnson, not only emailed all the information we needed to get there and check in beforehand, but texted me with details while we were en route. He provided lots of information and a detailed map with the B&B clearly marked, so getting around... More

Most satisfied with B&B. Clean, comfortable easy access to all attractions and town. Bus stop near by. Proprietor very helpful, needed extra night because of car breakdown, all arranged even gave us recommendation where to get it fixed locally. Breakfast very satisfying - plenty of choice, linen napkins! Impressed for the price. VGV (very good value all round). Free WIFI.

Booked a room here for 1 night, prior to taking over a house I rented in the area. The room was cheap and I did not expect much. But, the room was lovely, comfy large bed and with a good bathroom. I had to leave very early in the morning and did not expect more than a cup of tea,... More

Dear Patricia C, Thank you for giving such a lovely review. The arbour is just a few years old and the wisterias have grown well over it, and now heading towards the Acers.

Dear Janet B Thank you for your review, and glad you enjoyed your stay with us. I’m afraid its been a cold wet summer, but we have been able to dry our Egyptian Cotton Sheets on the line outside, which makes a big difference as the sea air gives them a lovely fresh smell. We hope to see you again.... More

Had 2 nights in Victoria Court in mid April 2012. Room was warm and cosy, had a good nights sleep followed by a better than expected breakfast down in the basement area. Not as pricey as some other B&B's, but good value. Friendly service and advice. Parking could perhaps become a problem as you simply park out on the street,... More

Would not recommend this B&B. The bedding was not clean, towels smell, the wire of the socket underneath the table is hanging out and the shower itself was a nightmare! However, I'd give some credit to the good location, breakfast and the rather friendly owner.

rookuk, Owner at Victoria Court, responded to this review

I'm sorry to say that the comments are totally untrue and libellous. Our sheets are scrupulously cleaned using Ariel Actilift and the towels are softened with Lenor Spring Awakening. Any stains noticed when the bed is stripped are spot washed and if a mark is noticed during the making of the bed it is rejected. We are fastidious about this... More
