My husband and two grown sons stayed at The Victoria for three nights in July. We had two rooms on the same floor, but quite a distance away from each other (which was ok). Our sons' room was larger with a twin bed and a queen size bed. Our room was a tiny room with barely enough room to get... More

Not so cheap and cheerful May be pushing but polite they were. On the evening I decided to stay over it had rooms available online , and was among the cheapest left with spaces. Whilst 65 is not too much it was less than travel lodge and premier inns as both were charging silly money . This is on a... More

We arrived quite late which we also had let the staff know. The welcome was okay, although we felt as a sort of inconvinience. The receptionist lacked social skills in a way that actually made communication difficult. The room was the size expected. VERY squeeky floor. Kettle was dirty and hairdryer was a fire hazard due to the amount of... More

Easy to park at their own lot on pleasant grounds with a 15 minute walk to the town center. We had a triple room with a very clean and modern bathroom. Food at the restaurant was excellent British fare. Mostly English tourists and locals. Service was very friendly and accommodating.

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
