Thank you so much for everything you did for us to make our pre-wedding celebrations memorable.

The meal was fantastic, we couldn’t be happier with the level of service provided and staff were courteous and respectful of our party.
Had great comments from our guests regarding the food and hotel.

Thank you for accommodating ourselves and our guests while you had another large booking to deal with - we didn’t feel pressured or under appreciated during our time at the Great Victoria.

We would love to stay again and will highly recommend your hotel and services to family, friends and colleagues.

Again, thank you for everything.

'The Day was Amazing'
We were married here 10.05.18 and the day was amazing everything we wanted it to be, Rebekah and the wedding coordinator were on had all day to make sure everything ran smoothly, Thank you for all the effort also put in by Gabriella aswell as the kitchen team it didn't go unnoticed..the food was really nice and has restored my faith after a previous disappoint.
Thank you to Claire who also did a fabulous job with the room decor everything looked beautiful and just what we wanted.
The only reason this isn't a 5 star review is because the lead up to the day wasn't as plain sailing as I'd hoped it would be communication needs some work BUT everything was just as we hoped it would be so not going to dwell on that..
Thank you Team Gv From a very Happy Mr & Mrs Sykes.

The hotel staff went above and beyond
I got married here on Saturday, from checking in to checking out the hotel staff went above and beyond to make sure myself, my husband and guests welcome. The ceremony room looked absolutely beautiful, where we had the sit down meal and evening reception the rooms just looked stunning and was still extremely spacious. The food there's just no words, we loved it, it was very tasty, the guests didn't have a bad word to say about it. From the woman managing the day, I feel awful because I can't remember her name to the waiting and bar staff who were all very polite and was willing to chat with everyone and anyone when brought into a conversation, they made the environment more friendly but professional at the same time. The DJ just knew what songs would get people on their feet and singing. The whole experience was amazing and our day was so wonderful and special. Thank you so much for such a fantastic, memorable day.
We are wanting to come back for the weekend of our anniversary and even for just some getaway time before.

The whole day was PERFECT
We were married here on Saturday and I can honestly say it was the best day ever. From the moment we booked the venue the staff have always been available for us to meet/talk to about our day. Then from the moment I arrived on Friday evening the staff went above and beyond to make sure myself and bridal party were taken care of. Then on our wedding day making sure everything was perfect for us and checking in with myself and the groom. The whole day was PERFECT even the weather didn’t dampen our spirits. The food was delicious with everyone enjoying. Our guests were even complimenting the day and how it was the best wedding they’d been too.
I would highly recommend the hotel for weddings and can’t wait to go back for our anniversary next year.

Thank you so much to Gabriella and the team

Wedding Day
Held our wedding two weeks ago at the hotel, we were very impressed with how Rebekah handled everything, nothing was too much to ask from the hotel staff at whatever time being either reception or food and beverage they were all so very helpful. The food was great at both our wedding breakfast and night reception, rooms we were allocated for the night before and night of our wedding were fabulous. All in all, a very special day made extra special by all the staff

Thank you
Thank you to the team for making our wedding truly memorable. Rooms were clean and well stocked with tea and coffee, the staff made sure our breakfast was brought to our room on the morning of the wedding. Everything was perfect, the room looked amazing and the food was beautiful. Reception staff were always on hand to help with any problems, no matter what time we needed them. I would highly have recommended the Victoria to anyone wanting to get married. We will be back!
