We got to the room just to discover we had a room with a double bed. Fine, mistakes are made (even though the receptionist confirmed the room), however it is not good customer service...

Check-in was very quick and efficient, with very friendly reception staff. Our room (129) was compact but very clean with a few complimentary toiletries, and a tea and coffee tray. There were...

We had a very enjoyable stay here, it was part of an organised tour, so there was a party of 60 or so. Very clean and staff were helpful especially the restaurant staff as I have food allergies and they took it all in their stride :-) The breakfast buffet was lovely great bacon and sausage !

Stayed overnight for a concert in Manchester. The communal areas are lovely. The receptionist was really helpful and kind and had a good local knowledge. Our room was plenty big enough and the bed was very comfy. Unfortunately the milk was sour and there were only two. Very limited toiletries in the room for two people. I had to Google...

Last visited here about 4 years ago and were looked after hence we returned hoping for some of the same. Not disappointed. Staff were welcoming and friendly, food was plentiful and tasty. Only one night but good nights sleep ready for long trip home. Would recommend this hotel, handy location just minutes off junction 21.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated only 5 miles away from both Manchester City Centre and the beautiful surroundings of the Yorkshire Countryside, The Victoria Hotel in Chadderton is your home away from home. Along with the scenic setting, multifaceted outlets and extensive investment plans in order to bring back the 1800 Victorian style neglected by previous owners, our aim is to become not only a hotel everyone returns to, but a local landmark as well. We offer 67 bedrooms including 28 club rooms, an exquisite function room that perfectly blends Victorian and modern styles, a relaxing restaurant and lounge bar, a stunning terrace and landscaped garden perfect for saying "I do", and a large parking with space for 110 cars. All of this enables us to serve your each and every need, whether you are coming for an idyllic weekend with your loved one, a family reunion, or hosting an event for up to 200 people. Moreover, we are located just off the M60 motorway, a link road to many Manchester attractions including Manchester Airport, The Trafford Centre, Media City, Old Trafford Football Ground and many more. The Victoria Hotel also acts as a Training Academy for focused and ambitious young individuals seeking an apprenticeship in various areas of Hospitality and Catering Industry. The apprentices are trained on site to an elite standard as we aim to help improve the service in the local community, as well as support the local economy. ... more   less
