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

This is in a great location to explore historic Canterbury; we were allowed to leave our car in the car park for the day after we booked out (avoiding expensive parking charges) and the staff couldn't have been more welcoming. The room was clean, modern and of a good size and the breakfast (£5.95 for a continental) was of a... More

I stayed here for the weekend with some friends earlier in March 2012. Originally, seven of us were booked in, but, for various reasons, we had to reduce the booking to four. The hotel were very accommodating and allowed to reduce the booking at no charge. We had a very good weekend at the Victoria - the rooms for three... More

We chose this hotel for a weekend break because of its location. It is very convenient for the city centre - 10 minutes brisk walk or 15 minutes leisurely stroll will take you either to Westgate or the city walls. The hotel was very comfortable and clean. The slight smell of paint suggested that there had been some refurbishment recently.... More

My husband had booked this hotel for a one night stay as a birthday surprise for me. I was very surprised and impressed with his choice! Our room was lovely, I think it may have been recently redecorated as I believe the hotel is in the process of being updated. The bedding and carpet felt new and was spotlessly clean.... More

We have just returned from The Victoria Hotel following a visit to Canterbury to attend my daughter's Graduation Ceremony. As a family we booked 2 double rooms. Both rooms were very clean but were in need of some TLC (decoration / maintenance) however the rooms were comfortable and warm. The staff were all helpful and friendly. After a busy day... More

The temperature in the room was good, but it has two big radiators in case it's a bit chilly. The hotel is located at about... More

The victoria hotel is very good. Friendly staff, good food, location not to far from center. Room clean and spatious. The hotel is old but charming. In fact we had a very agreable stay at the Victoria. We enjoyed the carvery and the ribeye.. The hotel was frequented by the locals for drinking and eating.

This is my second time in this hotel which I was 8 months ago. I choose this one because it has a reasonable price plus its location and access to roads, but hotel services are just backwards. Heater, sink, shower, are lacking maintenance. Bath drainage is awful, I can hear my neighbor who is a smoker, though it non smoking... More
