The Victoria Inn, Norfolk

The Victoria Inn is the closest you can stay to north Norfolk’s, and possibly the UK’s finest beach with its vast sands and soaring skies. But does this pub with rooms, built in the 1830s, live up to its excellent location?

We inspected ‘The Vic’, part of the 3,000 acre Holkham Hall estate, in May 2017.

How we inspect hotels

Unlike all other national UK travel magazines and newspaper travel sections, Which? Travel never accepts freebies.

All of our hotel inspections take place anonymously. We book in to a standard double room online, just as you would, and we sample the hotel’s facilities, just as you would. We never let on that we are from Which?

That means no special treatment, no reviewer upgrades and no opportunity for the hotel to influence our verdict.

And no matter how badly the hotel fares, we will always publish the review, warts and all.

We do this, so you can make the most of your breaks, and avoid staying in places such as the Royal Albion, Brighton - read our full review.
