My daughter and I arrived on Friday evening at The Victoria Hotel in Canterbury for a family wedding. Upon arrival we received a very warm welcome. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating. The food was not only very good, but there was plenty of it. The room was clean and comfortable and apart from the pillows, (I... More

I stayed here with a group of friends. As a cheap (ish) place to just lay your head and use as a base to explore beautiful Canterbury and the surrounding areas it was perfectly fine but in general this is a tired, shabby, old fashioned hotel with very below par rooms in need of a major overhaul to meet the...

We had a long weekend here and it was well placed for Canterbury town and cathedral... close to the rail connections.... it was quiet and we shall certainly use it again when we are next in canterbury.... The resturant is good and the breakfast very good..... Bar could be better but cannot have it all

We had booked a double room and a single room for 2 nights while visiting family. It was good to be able to park the car so close to Canterbury. The staff are friendly, but the rooms were rather small. Our rooms were at the very top of the hotel and were very hot and stuffy. There was tea, coffee,... More

I used to participate a business training program in UK and lived in Canterbury. This hotel is for us to pass one night for a reunion of students during that period. Although the facilities did not impress me, the special value still of this stay should always be remembered. It was one part of our story of our life with... More

A few weeks ago, I had a few days in Canterbury so decided to try it out. The plus’s - a great location for anyone visiting Canterbury – it’s a 10-15... More

Have just stayed in Victoria Hotel with a student choir from Aberdeen. All staff were friendly at all times, and always helpful. I liked the way that the managers were present much of the time helping out. The room I had was comfortable. Also, the food was good: I ate in the restaurant several times, and the carvery in particular... More
