The fine print
Must-know information for guests at this property

Please note that the dress code in our Jubilee Restaurant is Jacket & Tie preferred (no ripped denim, sportswear, beachwear or trainers) during evening dinner service.

Phase one of our exciting Source Spa and Wellness refurbishment is complete and we no longer have a Snooker Room. The next phase, which will start mid-October, will see a complete transformation of our indoor pool area with a new spa bath, treatment rooms, sauna, steam room, gym and relaxation area.

The indoor pool and spa area will be closed from mid-October 2023 until completion, which is expected in spring 2024. However, rest assured final dates will be posted on our website and social media, and guests will be contacted prior to arrival.

Guests are required to show a photo ID and credit card upon check-in. Please note that all Special Requests are subject to availability and additional charges may apply.

Please inform The Victoria Hotel of your expected arrival time in advance. You can use the Special Requests box when booking, or contact the property directly using the contact details in your confirmation.
