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

After returning from Manchester we were looking for somewhere go for late Sunday Lunch. We choose the Victoria Hotel because they were open till 8pm for food on Sunday's. 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

The overbearing and condescending attitude of the stuff & manager is the most eyeopening experience we had at Canterbury. And forget about cleanness, large insects crawl under your quilt. On our second night here, my friend screamed and woke the rest of us up at 1 am in the morning. She felt something was crawling on her inner thigh, in... More

Dear Yang and anyone else reading this review The reason why we didn't take this review so serious enough to refund the guest all their money and free breakfast that they insisted on was at no point had anyone else ever see this bug that the guest had a photo of, we assumed it would be a beetle as the...

Stayed here for 4 nights while my partner attended a conference at the University of Kent. Room was fairly large for a small inn; clean and with a teakettle, coffee, tea, and biscuits. Bed and pillows were very comfortable. Bathroom clean and updated. No fans in the room but things got cool at night when we left the window open.... More

Stayed for three nights on business in one of the rooms in older building. Rooms clean and well provided but no air con and at front there is fair bit of road noise. The rooms in new building are at back and a lot quieter. Restaurant good 'pub food' with good friendly service.
