Photo of Victoria Inn

“A comfortable, modernised country inn with a traditional ambience on North Norfolk's coast road. With access to Holkham estate behind and an expansive sandy beach (one of England's best) just half a mile away. Ideal for beach walks, birdwatching and playing. Good restaurant.”

Hotel Review

The theme is a traditional British Country Inn, with colourful, individual furnishings brought together by local designers and craftsmen. The Victoria, which was built in 1838, feels thoroughly English in a laid-back, feel-good way. The surrounding area affords a choice of serious walks and gentler ones around vast Holkham Estate. Food is a highlight and there’s an appealing buzz in the restaurant. Welcoming and child-oriented.

See What They Say

Why do people love staying in your hotel? You can’t stay any where closer to Holkham beach and the hotel offers wonderful views of the marshes. The location is perfect for exploring all of North Norfolk with Wells-next-the-Sea and Burnham Market both just a short drive away but is secluded and offers a great sense of escape.

What is there to do in the area? It is all about the great outdoors- The North Norfolk Coast offers great bird watching all year round, walking and cycling. Visitors can enjoy boat trips to visit the seals at Blakeney and explore the charming coastal villages dotted with art galleries and boutiques.

What kind of breakfast do you offer? A choice of traditional cooked breakfast using locally sourced ingredients or continental breakfast.

Do you offer other meals? And can you recommend good places to eat out locally? The Victoria is open to residents and non residents for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day with a seasonal menu serving delicious locally sourced food, much of it grown and raised on the Holkham Estate. In nearby Wells-next-the-Sea, the popular Beach Café is a great place to pick up a picnic or coffee.

Which are your most popular room types, and why? The Marsh View Room in The Victoria is the most popular it looks out across the wide open space towards Holkham National Nature Reserve. In the attic of the inn the family suite is very popular for families looking for a bit more space. While the designs for the ten rooms at Ancient House have their own identity chosen to reflect the history of the property. Four of the larger rooms in this building have attractive sitting rooms appealing to families and guests who are looking for their own private, quiet space.

What message would you like to give Hotel Guru readers? The Victoria offers a wonderful hotel experience in a very special unspoilt and historic location.
