“Victorian Flair in Canterbury”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

Comfortable stay in good location, good breakfast, not so impressed with evening meal with overcooked veggies and burned potatoes.
Small room but very clean and comfortable bed, good shower at rear of building, ensuring quiet nights sleep!

I would like to thank all the staff at the Victoria Hotel especially the manageress Jackie she was very greeting when we arrived told us her name which is not always made on check in with other hotels and if we need anything just come to he,r also the young girl with dark hair who also was on reception I stayed there the last week in September after dropping my son off to start his first year at university, she knew what I was going through and she helped me on sites I can look at for a room as he could not get into halls, she went out her way to make sure if we needed help she would be there it was a busy Sunday Evening I waited for her to have a moment, I had a beautiful carvery service was excellent even though they were extremely busy nothing was to much trouble for any of the staff. The bedroom was perfect for my stay it was very clean and to have a proper bed for my son not a fold away. I can go on and on to say how good it was, all I will say the owner of the hotel should be proud of there staff especially management as she was very helpful I will return. Keep it up

Stayed here with my Mum middle of Sept and we were pleasantly surprised! Hotel room was large but unfortunately cold in the evenings.

However, dinner was absolutely lovely in the restaurant, portions were huge & very tasty. Breakfast was cooked to order which was superb. Staff were always very polite & helpful.

It's about a 30 minute walk to the Cathedral which was fine going, but our tired feet noticed it on the way back!

Would definately recommend this hotel.

The first kicking thing is the bad smell in the receiving hall. Good room and breakfast fresh and complete. Bad service-room. they do not let you alone in the morning, because of the insistent cleaning service.

Had a nice overnight stay here. Bedroom was clean and nice size, had everything we needed. Reception staff helpful and location good to go to the city centre. Only criticism would be with the restaurant, staff were not very helpful ad attentive and wouldn't have a meal there again. But otherwise a nice stay.

As local residents we have stayed here on a couple of occasions and have been very pleased each time. Very clean, spacious rooms with nice bathrooms. Only downfall is perhaps the rooms could benefit from air conditioning!. Very close to the city with the benefit of the great bars and restaurants in st Dunstans street just a 5 minute walk away.

This hotel is ideally places just on the outskirts of the town, it has plenty of parking and we found it ideal for a nights stopover. The rooms are very well equipped and comfortable. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the breakfast very adequate and reasonablt priced. We would definitley stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back to aviod road noise as the hotel is situated on the very busy main road.
