Up early, bags are packed, breakfast is done, we are ready to go. But, a final word with our hosts and we get chatting. Oops, the time has gotten away from us and we don't get on the road til 9.30am.
Leaving Penzance our route takes us towards St Michaels Mount which is a little island off the shore that can be walked to at low tide. The …
Just getting my thoughts together for my forthcoming trip. I am hoping to leave mid to late March via The swiss Alps and the ski resort of Verbier where my son is currently hurtling down mountains and coaching groups and indviduals the finer points of skiing. He`s living the dream... so ...

28 days until I move to australia that countdown has flown by! Everything Is all sorted now: visas, travel insurance, flights etc. excited is a slight understatement. I plan to travel for the first couple of months until I run out of money, get a job then save up to do a road trip around the east coast around my birthday. What a memory I’ll have for my 21st!! I can’t wait to get out of this daily routine I’m stuck in at the ...
... train. It would take most of the day to get to London and Leah had to change trains once on the way. I had to check out the local surf beach for myself, no comparison to our beautiful beaches at Byron! Rod you would love the links golf course overlooking the beach. Bit like Barnbougle but not as pretty though. The north coast of Cornwall beckoned and I followed its jagged line through many pretty little fishing villages, along craggy cliffs, and past several ...

Situated in a great location in Newquay with easy walking distance to shops, cafes and the beach.
The room is large compared to many that we have stayed in and well appointed with period furniture to match the historical feel of the hotel.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Victoria - Newquay
The downstairs area in the Victoria is ok and the breakfast was good, but the room was disgusting!!
Disgrace to cornwall visistors
this hotel was a big dissapointment to us
i wish that i had asked to see the room before i had paid as i never would have stayed there. The noise from the venues around was appalling i live in the middle of london so its not that i am not used to traffic ect. But yobs shouting and swearing outside my window did not impress me. Nor did the stains on the carpets and the tacky decor, I can honestly say it is the worst hotel i have ever stayed in.
My husband and i came to Hotel Victoria for our Honeymoon in 2004, the staff were fantastic, and the Honeymoon suite was to die for. We were made to feel very welcome, and also given 2 bottles of bubbly. We are coming back for our 1st anniversary, and would highly recommend the hotel.
I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights hoping for a relaxing stay in this so called "luxury" hotel. The first thing to point out is that the photo on the website is extremely misleading. The hotel appears to be set in its own grounds on the cliff top when in fact it is rammed on to Newquay's main street amongst the seedy bars and flashing tacky shop lights. My heart sank through the floor when I arrived. Things didn't get much better. My shower was taped to the wall and there was a big hole in the bed spread. Two of the reasons I chose this hotel were 1) the lift that descends from the hotel lobby directly on to the beach and 2) the swimming pool and spa area. The lift wasn't working due to a rock fall and the pool area was dingy and in need of a re-fit.
Having travelled quite extensively I have to say that this is one of the worst hotels. Being single I was subjected to the usual poor standard of room, dirty linen, substandard furnishings. Food was adequate, service with a frown. As someone who grew up in cornwall, I am disappointed that Newquay has developed from an exclusive, elegant town into a yob ridden den of iniquity.
Just enjoyed a wonderful stay at the Hotel Victoria in Newquay, splendid facilities, all employees went out of their way to help us. Would highly recommend to anyone. Great central location and easy for beach.
without a shadow of a doubt this is the worst hotel i have stayed in anywhere in the world!!! it's dated, looks like it hasen't seen a lick of paint for decades and seems to be stuck in a 1950's timewarp. as for the excuse for a restaurant words almost fail me! i thought such a combination of rude and arrogant staff allied with appalling food could not be improved upon. this place is truely a disgrace and would not be out of place in an episode of fawlty towers! i could go on for ever with an endless list of problems but i feel this institution has taken up enough of my time.
Hotel Victoria is AB FAB!
I stayed in the hotel for one month in the summer. I couldn't have asked for a nicer place to be. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, the room had a sunken tub and the beach was right behind the hotel. Also they have a delicious spongecake desert :) The only problem is f you are not a big club or partying person. BEWARE...the noise from people leaving te clubs a pubs is no joke. This is only in the summer months when it's a big tourist area. If you go have fun. :) There is an aquarium and zoo nearby for the kiddies.
Have been staying at The Victoria (The "Vic" as called by locals) since 1985. The hotel has been renovated through the years, and gets better and better in all aspects of service through time.
