We've stayed here before and like the staff and location. Its just outside town but a nice walk through the lovely Westgate Gardens into town.
Although you have to walk or get the bus into town, we prefer this to some of the Canterbury Hotels in town, as you avoid the noisy crowds of foreign schoolkids, bless 'em!
Anyway, this trip was during half term and we could only get a small double room (335). The room is as advertised and very small. You can only get in one side of the double bed!. The bathroom is also very cramped and I suspect anyone on the heavier side would struggle to get between the bath and basin unit to get to the toilet.
The room is at the front of the hotel and faces the main road. As it was hot we had the window open and the traffic noise was considerable.
I'm not really intending to be critical of The Victoria Hotel, as we like place overall and find the staff very friendly and helpful. This review is more of a heads up to say if you're going to stay here, go for one of the larger rooms and one at the back of the hotel.
Worth noting is they do a nice breakfast (£5.99 Continental or £7.99 full English) and there is masses of free parking.More
