“Fabulous holiday house”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2016

Great house, very comfortable and very very complete. Lovely garden. Would definitely recommend it, a place to call home.

“Great place to stay in Henley”

Reviewed 8 Jul 2016

Spent a week at Victorian House and we really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it. The house was very comfortable and the kitchen and bathroom welcome packs were very thoughtful. The free wi-fi and NOW TV were an additional bonus. There is a large library of books and also games and DVD's to keep you entertained if needed, along with a piano if you can play. The ensuite shower in the corner of the 2nd bedroom was a novelty and was quite spacious. Lots of towels were provided for our stay. Norman kept in contact during our booking and made sure we had all the instructions we needed to get there and access the property. He also checked in with us during our stay to make sure there were no problems.The town centre and river are only about 10 mins walk away and there are lots of great pubs and restaurants to eat out in (which you can then walk off along the river).

“Exceeded Expectations”

Reviewed 18 Sep 2014

The house was spotless and full of character..with a cosy atmosphere and although not large it felt comfortable and homely..the house has been lovingly maintained by the owner Norman who kept in good contact to ensure we were happy, even to the point of leaving us a welcome pack of goodies and wine. We especially enjoyed the opportunity of opening the patio doors from the kitchen which lead out on to a small but private patio garden where we would often enjoy breakfast. and the all important beds were extremely comfortable. Being a Terrace House car parking is on the street which at night was busy with parked cars but we always managed to park ok.
