Had a lovely stay at this hotel for a weekend. Lovely modern bedroom with plenty so storage space for everything. Friendly hotel and the staff were all very helpful.

Good food with the added benefit of a Carvery. Plenty of choice for breakfast..

Large car park which is a must these days. We found there was not any noise from traffic.

We would definitely visit this hotel again

Room Tip: Ground floor at the rear of the Hotel .

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 par with them but premier may have the edge but not on price this night

Room was clean clearly two single beds pushed together by the ridge in the middle but this gives them options . I was comfortable and slept well so no complaints

Room Tip: A room other than at the front which is on a busy road

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 dust..
We came back to the hotel late almost every night (after 11pm) which means the front door is locked and you have to ring a bell or call the receptions phone for someone to come open up.. Felt like a 14 year old with a curfew. One of the evenings i had to wait outside in the cold for 20 mins. Not cool. All other hotels have a solution with a card lock on the outside. This was a padlock. Ridickulous. Not going back

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.

My daughter and I arrived on Friday evening at The Victoria Hotel in Canterbury for a family wedding. Upon arrival we received a very warm welcome. 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 prefer feather ones)we couldn't have been happier. Next day the pillows were promptly changed. So thank you to Jackie, Scott, Lauren and Chris and the rest of the staff at The Victoria Hotel.
