We spent three nights at the Victoria and enjoyed ourselves there. Our ground floor room was huge (we booked a twin and got a triple with a vast double bed and a single), comfortable and spotlessly clean - the large bathroom positively gleamed. Despite very hot weather for the time of year, the room stayed fairly cool, and it was... More

Stayed at this hotel with my wife for 2 nights (Thurs & Fri) in room 7. The hotel is well placed on the edge of the city and only a short walk to the city walls via a very nice park and quiet roads. The room we were in, slept 3 and was of a good size, it was clean... More

The hotel, as noted by other reviewers is not near the centre of town - a good 15 minute walk each way. However, the parking at the hotel is useful as parking in town is difficult. The rooms vary in quality. We were disappointed to be given a very inferior room - noise (from creaky floorboards above us), hot and... More

I read a lot of reviews about this hotel and so I was prepared for the negatives it is quite dated, it is very hot in the bedrooms and the fan makes little difference, the window open all the time faces onto the roundabout so if you get that room then you may be disturbed by traffic noise, there is...

Location -The hotel said on it's website it was close to city centre. It was, in reality, a 15 minute walk or 5 minutes on a frequent bus. We were dismayed to find that the location of the hotel was on a very busy roundabout next to a dual carriageway. Transport - Canterbury West train station was a 10 minute... More

Stayed for a few nights recently at the Victoria Hotel - a nice little hotel, just off London Road in Canterbury. Rooms were neat and tidy and well kept, no noise to speak of, and overall a pleasant place to stay. It was a rather hot time of year however and despite having a fan available the room was not...

I was extraordinarily pleased with this hotel, especially the staff at the Reception Desk and the Restaurant. All the staff is like one big family and everyone could not have been more helpful or courteous, helping each other and especially the guests. It is what it is, a quaint old world property, not a 5-star Luxury property but perhaps more... More

When we arrive around 6pm we went into the restaurant and we all decided to have the Carvey. We had plenty of choice to eat and the food was very good.... More

The Victoria Hotel was a brilliant base for us to explore Canterbury city, within easy walking distance of the city centre (approx 10 minute walk). It was very clean and had a good friendly atmosphere

We booked a room on Booking.com but it might be preferable to go to the hotel's website, as we ended up paying for a more expensive triple room instead of a double. Buffet breakfast is not included in the room price and relatively expensive. Wifi works very poorly despite not being in a remotely located room. During warm weather the... More
