The Victoria Hotel
Ranked #10 of 16 Hotels in Canterbury
Reviewed 19 July 2011

An old-fashioned combination hotel and restaurant and bar located on the southwest side of Canterbury off the main highway. It caters to older guests who have greater expectations of service and cleanliness, so what you have is a clean, well-run establishment at a reasonable price without too many extras (unless you count the in-room trousers press). The attached restaurant is nothing fancy, but its carvery is good and the location is convenient especially since the Victoria is also on the edge of a residential area and the nearest eating places are in the town centre, a good 20-minute hike. In-room cable TV, but no wi-fi.

An excellent base for sightseeing in Canterbury. Just under 1km walk into the city centre along quiet roads and through a park. Bus stop nearby if you are too weary to walk back.
Staff were friendly and helpful at this family owned hotel. Room clean and comfortable, well stocked tea and coffee making facilities, extra point for fair trade hot chocolate!

If you are looking for a stay in Canterbury then i can strongly recommend the Victoria Hotel. Staff are friendly and welcoming, rooms are spacious and clean, restaurant serves great food and the breakfast choice is sufficient for everyones needs and appetite.
Walking distance into the centre of town is approx 15 mins.
Next time i visit i will certainly return to the Victoria Hotel.

My parents booked me in to this hotel as a quick fix for an overnight stay in Canterbury, and I really enjoyed my time here. Staff were friendly and the room was very clean, a bit cramped perhaps, but the bed was well made and cozy. Breakfast was the bit I was looking forward to and it didn't disappoint! A nice selection of cooked and cold foods. Would stay again if I were in the area again and needed a room.

Wasn’t expecting a 5 star hotel and certainly didn’t get it, what I got was good value accommodation with a comfortable bed to crash for the night.

The problem with Canterbury is that there aren’t many hotels, you either pay top end prices for Abode in the centre, settle for a B&B or stay out of town, this hotel is a good alternative.

£55 for the night represented great value for money. My top floor room had a comfy bed and a small bathroom, all I needed was a place to freshen up and sleep and this hotel delivered on that. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was clean with amenities and lots of towels.

The hotel is a short walk from the city centre and I parked my car overnight for free. I didn’t bother with the reasonably priced breakfast as Canterbury has an array of interesting coffee shops and cafes.

Some reviews of this hotel make me laugh, if you want 5 star accommodation stay elsewhere, if you want a clean bed, bathroom and nothing more then look no further….. great value for money!

Stayed just one night whilst travelling through Canterbury and was amazed by what outstandingly good value this hotel represents.

The room was fine. Very clean, good facilities, quiet and cost only £65.

The restaurant served an enormous breakfast which included everything for £6.95

Don't be misled by the low price this is a very decent hotel
