The Vic Junction Hotel undergoes a complete overhaul

What a transformation! The newly renovated hotel offers a completely different look and feel. The lobby / bar / restaurant is completely changed, all one level now and with white concrete floors and big modern furniture. Some design elements are quite strange where the designer has hung painted beds, chairs and suitcases on the walls...odd but not offensive. The restaurant is more open plan, and offers one long singles table. The conference room is now much fresher, they have removed the movie-style still lights and added sunken ceiling lights, which makes the room look so much bigger. The biggest complaint with Vic Junction was that it was always so dark. They have worked hard to lighten up the corridors by painting the steel girders and doors a light grey and changed the lighting and carpets which is a big improvement. The bedrooms have been completely redone; new carpets, fresh colours, some of the brick walls have been plastered, the raw brick left has been varnished and the bathrooms completely renovated. The bathrooms have glass frosted walls which allows more light to get in. They have done away with the shower in the bath and shower curtain and now all rooms except 6 only have showers. The 24 loft rooms again, are fresher and lighter. The rooms facing Somerset Road now have double glazing to reduce street noise. The hotel definitely offers a good 4* option within walking distance of the V&A Waterfront.
