Stayed here overnight on a business trip, very good room rate online... Staff were very pleasant, however the bed was so very hard, room was very hot and small, couldn't leave my window open as there was a wasps nest outside.. Plus website said the hotel was located on a quiet street... Well not my room, it faced a very... More

15 minute walk from Canterbury West train station where two people can stay on a room only basis at £65 per room per night. Parking available on site. Nice neighbourhood. The room did look a little worn but nevertheless comfortable and handy for Canterbury.

Stayed at the Victoria hotel for one night this week as part of a two day visit to Kent, on arrival you walk though a very pleasant garden area to get to reception but once you get there you have to phone to get someone to come and check you in. Our booking had been made by my friend some... More

Booked this hotel in advance when we arrived it was like walking into a pub rather than a welcoming hotel as to be expected. When we went to our rooms the carpets and walls where filthy going up the stairs and we could smells of cigarettes and alcohol. Bedroom was clean however was very uncomfortable and could hear people out... More

Shown to our table quickly but unfortunately when we ordered drinks it took over 15 minutes to bring them to the table (we did receive an apology). The carvery had a good selection of vegetables but not too forth giving with the meat getting only three average sized slices.

My review is solely of the restaurant. Experienced terrible service here, when visiting with a large group of friends. The orders were mixed up, and brought out while one friend was in the toilet. Instead of waiting just a moment, or simply asking about the order, the waitress sent it back immediately and began screaming at the group. Then another... More

Would highly recommend this hotel, fabulous stuff wonderful food and a great location for Canterbury. Stayed for the weekend with 6 of my girlfriend's we had a fabulous weekend. The hotel is just a short walk to the city. We did lots of shopping and sight seeing the best for me was the river cruise. Would definitely come back again.... More

Stayed here with my husband over Easter Weekend and had a lovely time. We used as a base to explore the surrounding area and, as stated in other reviews, walking to town or Canterbury West train station takes 15 minutes (through a lovely park) and the hotel is very easily accessible by road. We found that all staff, without exception... More

We stayed for three nights at the Victoria and thoroughly enjoyed it. Even though we were a couple, we had a triple room which was nicely sized, airy, spotlessly clean, and overlooked the garden. Because we were upstairs at the back of the hotel, the room was very quiet and sleep came easily. The double bed had a fairly firm... More
