Another short two-night stay in the dependable Hotel Victoria. In all the times I have stayed here I have always had a relaxing and enjoyable time. The breakfast sets you up for the day. Looking forward to my next visit to Lowestoft and the Hotel Victoria.
Have eaten in the restaurant 4 times now,and meals are consistently excellent in quality. Service is also consistently excellent and even under the current covid restrictions and extra demands, the staff are always polite,helpful and professional. I Will certainly return again once restrictions are lifted.
Booked two rooms originally but had to cancel one which was easily done with one phone call (due to stay here with family but owing to personal commitments ended up only being the two of us). Chose this hotel for its proximity to Pleasurewood Hills park where we were visiting. Arrived and checked in with a little confusion due to the cancelled room, given key and went to room 202 which was a spacious, well laid out, sea view room. Went to bar for a drink and snack, shown to table and served quickly with a pleasant and friendly attitude. Ordered two baguette melts (Brie and pulled pork) these were gorgeous and full to the brim, salad on the side too! Had booked dinner for 7pm and again were greeted warmly and seated on a table by the window, (sea view if not dark!!) dinner was again extremely pleasant prawn starter, very spicy chilli, brie good. Mains we both opted for pie, (steak & doom bar chicken & mushroom)both good although veggies were a little overdone for my liking. Desert we shared a cheese board which was plenty for two. Breakfast was preordered and apart from white toast instead of brown was all good. After a day at the theme park we were looking forward to a hot shower but unfortunately the shower was not great, could have got wet eventually I suppose but had a bath instead. Second evenings dinner was as good as the first and they even moved our table for us as we were seated next to a rowdy group to begin with. We chose pate, chicken satay, both had the duo of pork which was well cooked and accompanied by better vegetables. Chose blueberry Frangipane and chocolate clotted cream cake, yummy. They were participating in the eat out scheme so the bill including all drinks and decent bottle of wine on both nights only came to £200 in total. Only comment would be that the hotel room could do with an update as they have updated the restaurant and bar areas making them more modern (think it could have been done more in keeping with the building). Overall would highly recommend hotel for a comfortable stay right on the seafront. …
Great 2 night short break in an amazing deluxe sea view room, the sunrise morning wake up was something we'll never forget! Excellent breakfast with quality ingredients Fabulous evening meals (great fish & chips!) The room was perfect with a huge bed and plenty of storage including a lovely seating area in the bay window with door opening onto the balcony .. just perfect Our only negative is the bathroom - it could do with a deep clean, it needs more than just a wipe over
This is a three star hotel with a FIVE STAR SERVICE. Every member of staff that we met during our weekend stay was professional, friendly, and accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble. We had a 'deluxe room' with a sea view, and what a view! Overlooking the beach and the north sea, it was incredible. We ate at the hotel restaurant both days and the food was excellent. And again the customer service was excellent. We will definitely be returning here.
