Had an absolutely amazing wedding day. After a few blips leading up to the day in regards to payments the Victoria really came through on the day (mostly due to the work and organisation on the new wedding planner Laura). She couldnt do enough for us on the day - including things out of her job description including putting me... More

I met up with my three friends and we went for afternoon tea. The company was excellent but the afternoon tea was a bit of a let down and not good value for money. We got a round of sandwiches made from 2 slices of bread, a tiny scone, a tiny Victoria sponge, a minute piece of cheesecake that tasted... More

We stayed for a night to break up a long journey tempted by the 'Browns' restaurant attached. It wasn't a Browns, but Mr Brown. Still OK with a small menu. For starters I had below average mussels. The main course pie was overly crisp. The staff were friendly and helpful, great wifi and a good location. The room itself was... More

I attended the Victoria Hotel in July with 145 teenagers and colleagues for their annual Leavers Prom.

One of my worries when booking... More

We haven't stayed at this hotel since it was The Bower, some years ago. We found the new refurbishments and design layout introduced by The Victoria to be exceptionally good. The reception is combined with the bar in what used to be the magnificent dining room; but the new presentation is also magnificent. The reception/bar area leads off into a... More

We stayed one night at this hotel and the room was lovely. Just one thing that perhaps needs improvement is the water pressure and warmth of the shower. The staff were just lovely at this hotel and a special thanks to the man who served us breakfast (which I might add was superb) as nothing was too much trouble. Please... More

A bit of a shame because this place has potential. We stayed here the hottest night of the year there was no air conditioning and no fans available. I realise the weather condition is outside the control of the Hotel so not too bothered by this. Room itself is reasonable size, clean and comfortable. Shower was pathetic no pressure hardly...

Situated only 5 miles away from both Manchester City Centre and the beautiful surroundings of the Yorkshire Countryside, The Victoria Hotel in Chadderton is your home away from home. Along with the scenic setting, multifaceted outlets and extensive investment plans in order to bring back the 1800 Victorian style neglected by previous owners, our aim is to become not only a hotel everyone returns to, but a local landmark as well. We offer 67 bedrooms including 28 club rooms, an exquisite function room that perfectly blends Victorian and modern styles, a relaxing restaurant and lounge bar, a stunning terrace and landscaped garden perfect for saying "I do", and a large parking with space for 110 cars. All of this enables us to serve your each and every need, whether you are coming for an idyllic weekend with your loved one, a family reunion, or hosting an event for up to 200 people. Moreover, we are located just off the M60 motorway, a link road to many Manchester attractions including Manchester Airport, The Trafford Centre, Media City, Old Trafford Football Ground and many more. The Victoria Hotel also acts as a Training Academy for focused and ambitious young individuals seeking an apprenticeship in various areas of Hospitality and Catering Industry. The apprentices are trained on site to an elite standard as we aim to help improve the service in the local community, as well as support the local economy. ... more   less
