I booked my husband into this hotel for two nights as he was attending a funeral in the area. I chose this hotel because of previous experiences when we lived for 20+ years nearby, when it was the Bower Hotel. We remembered the great experiences that we had in the restaurant and at functions and the good reports from friends...

We have always booked the hotel when we visit Manchester, however this visit was not a great one. The big mistake was made on arrival when we were booked into a room directly over the room where a wedding reception was due to take place. All was fine at 2pm, but at 11.30pm when we were trying to sleep the...

Just been to The Victoria Hotel for afternoon tea as a party of 3. The afternoon tea was lovely but just felt I had to mentioned the staff! Camille the lady who serves us was absolutely brilliant. Extremely friendly and nothing was too much trouble for her! I hope you pass on our thanks to her! 😊😊

Congratulations and many thanks to all the staff for making Sarah and Spencer's wedding such a memorable day. We were delighted with everything from our guest accomodation to the wedding itself. The food and staff were outstanding with a special word of thanks to Laura. A wonderful venue for a wedding!

Friendly welcome upon arrival and quick check in. Room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Nice quiet room. Had to nip back to reception for the room service menu. On the pricey side, but enjoyable food. Only issues were the shower not being at all powerful and the breakfast staff seeming a bit rushed. Would stay again.

We stayed over for four days in the executive suite. On check in we confirmed with the receptionist that the room we booked had twin bed. 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...

We stayed here for a long weekend whilst touring the Yorkshire Dales as part of a Just- Go Holidays trip. The building was lovely after a recent refurbishment. 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.

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
