4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Rooms new, very clean, and in good condition. It is a pub so expect a bit of noise until close, you do get the benefit of a drink without having to drive. Close to the main oyster restaurants and the beach.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

Nice bar, very friendly staff, room 1 was spacious, comfortable and has a huge bath. We didn't eat at the Victory because the main reason for our visit was to eat at the Oyster Bar directly across the road...which was fantastic...
