“Wedding reception”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

We had our wedding reception at the hotel on 30th May all the management and staff worked so hard to make are wedding day perfect every detail was taken care of so we could enjoy the day and not worry about anything. The staff are very friendly and conscientious about every part of their job.

The food and drink was amazing and out of this world all our guests have commented on the whole experience of the day and the venue itself saying how fantastic it is.

Myself and my husband stayed in the bridal suite and was blown away by how lovely the room was every detail was there from the chocolates and champagne to the swans made from the towels which was a lovely surprise to have after a long day with our guest.

We could not recommend The Victoria Hotel enough and are looking forward to going back to spend our 1st wedding anniversary at a place that made are wedding day even more special.

Stayed at the Victoria Hotel June 2014. We booked a room at last minute and checked-in an hour later. The reception/lounge area was really nice.
Our room on 1st floor was very clean and tidy with lovely views of the garden area and we were very happy to see a large bath in the bathroom! Very comfy bed, flat screen tv with freeview channels and tea and coffee facilities.

We ate in the restaurant which was really nice and clean. The waitress was very polite and friendly and was quick with taking our orders, bringing us drinks and kept asking if we needed anything. We ordered off the Sunday menu 2 courses for £14.95. The starter was fresh and hot but I was full after it and was then faced with a huge beef dinner after which was overwhelming but it was definitely worth the money and its better than still being hungry!!

We sat out in the garden with our drinks which was really nice!
Overall lovely quiet hotel, great food, great night

Stayed here in early April for 1 Saturday night. I called to ask if I could check in early and they said that was fine. When I arrived there was a lovely welcome and we were shown to our room. Room was good, a little dark but was very clean and had everything you would need. 5 minute walk to the tram stop and great access to Manchester. Would stay again!

I stay here for business and wouldn't choose anywhere else. The food is lovely, I usually have dinner and breakfast here and can't fault either. The accommodation is comfortable, feels like home and the cocktail bar is very nice. Outdoor seating area means summer trips aren't a hardship and the staff are extremely friendly. Prices compare well to other hotels in the area, but this is much nicer than the rest.

Room Tip: They are all good, not huge but plenty of room in a double.

I only stayed for one night but if I'm in the area I'll be stopping by again. The staff were friendly enough, the room was clean but could have done with a paint job, the food was nice and filled me up and beer on tap!

I'm not sure I'd have my wedding here mind you!

Room Tip: Ask for one on the first floor at the back
