I stayed at this hotel last night with my daughter and a friend as we were visiting the university of Kent. The hotel is perfectly situated with ample 'free parking'. Lovely spacious and clean bedroom with modern bathroom. Hotel staff extremely helpful and friendly, especially the Manager Stuart Martin who was welcoming, cheerful and very informative of the area.

Went around 8pm on 14th March. Found manager/senior staff member, whom I believe was called Stuart Martin (?), definitely the rudest person I had come across that day. He had no idea of customer service, believed insulting the customer was acceptable when simple compromise was possible. Such a shame as ruined a very nice evening.

I thought this hotel offered great value for money. Our room was spacious, well furnished and spotlessly clean. Although some of the decor in the communal corridors is slightly dated , noted by other reviewers, the room itself was decorated to a modern theme and appeared fresh and inviting, it included tea-coffee facility, hairdryer, t.v which all worked fine.

I was coming to Canterbury for my sister's graduation, she book the victoria hotel for us. The minute my family and i arrived at the door we were tired, hungry but to be greeted the way we were was not what i had in mind. The receptionist made rude remarks and was totally sarcastic all the time, he seemed distant... More

Had a great stay here the weekend just gone. Nicely priced and have to say that the carvery was a good option for lunch. If I am ever back in Canterbury, would be happy to stay here again. Rooms were good and staff friendly.

I booked the hotel as it had pretty good reviews when I was looking around. In addition to this, it also had free parking and a walkable distance to the centre. The walk is about 15/20 mins and a nice stroll by the river before you hit the centre. Unfortunately, my stay wasn't as good as the previous reviews. I... More

I booked this hotel on-line for a cheapish hotel for my daughter and I to stay in the night before her university open day. I wasn't really expecting too much but I was pleasantly surprised. The staff were all very friendly, on reception and at breakfast. We didn't eat in during the evening as we wanted to walk into town... More

Spent 2 nights with my family in a three-rooms ground floor. Services and prestations are really good for the price. The restaurant is ok. Also the full English breakfast is quite good. A bit far from the center, 10-15mins walk, 5mins with a taxi.
