My wife and I arrived at the Victoria hotel on Friday 10/06/15 to Monday 13/06/15 the receptionist was very polite and helpful when booking us in and answered the questions we asked her, the room was very clean and big with a bath/shower. I did think that it might be a little noisy at night with there being a bar... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights and enjoyed our stay. Our room was in the older part of the Hotel and our ceilings were very high making our room feel very spacious. It had also been renovated recently and was in very good condition. It was lovely and clean. We could open our window and enjoy the pretty... More

Stayed for a long weekend to visit the city. Clean room, comfy bed, parking on site, excellent breakfast, & 10-15 minute walk into town so we could leave the car parked up all weekend. Very good value for money

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
