A fabulous visit to Dunedin and stay in The Victoria Hotel. We were upgraded to the new rooms which were lovely and being in a back room, away from both main roads, so very quiet. The staff were ultra friendly and efficient. The hotel is conveniently located,so we could walk into The Octagon for meals and also an easy walk...

My travel agent provided me 3 recommendations for an overnight stay in Dunedin... the least expensive being the Vic. In hindsight I am glad I opted for this hotel. I was given a room in the recently refurbished wing on the first floor. The room feels brand new with all of the amenities being excellent. Service has been polite and...

Good comfortable hotel walking distance from the train station. Rooms are clean and a good size. No street noise and walking distance to some excellent cafes, pubs and restaurants. Not far from the popular Octagon in the city.

No probs at all in recommending this hotel. The staff were friendly, the room great and the location in the city convenient. Would certainly stay there again. Parking ($10) at the hotel and could walk every where in the city.

Had a stopover of one night in Dunedin. My family and I are absolutely happy with the stay. Carpark was a breeze. Its centrally located and walking distance to the Octagon with many shops and restaurants. The staff were service oriented and professional. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The good quality range of tea provided is much appreciated!!

The Victoria hotel was in a nice location as it was a five minute walk to the town center (tons of bars, restaurants, shops) and right across from the Cadbury factory. The hotel had a nice room with a balcony but the room did not have an AC unit. The hotel also charged for parking ($15-$20 roughly) per night and...

Dear dyt06z, thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. I am pleased to hear that you found the location handy to your needs, and that you liked your room as well.

Excellent.. wonderful staff and very handy Location. Easy to go around the town while leaving the vehicle behind and your food is sorted too as they have good selection in their menu and they have Nandos right next to them.Nice and tidy rooms.. I really enjoyed my stay and great pricing too. Will definitely be going back.

Large hotel right in the middle of Dunedin. Really nice spacious apartment, tidy and spotlessly clean. Such a comfortable bed and large bathroom. This hotel is close to many restaurants and pubs, and has restaurant and bar in the hotel. very comfortable.

Dear Rodney D, thank you for sharing your experience with the online community. Since we opened the new block in October 2016 we are still getting used to the idea of being a large hotel, having expanded from 42 rooms to 72 rooms. We are more or less in the centre of town, so the only real issue is choosing...

We booked one of the few rooms with a kitchenette - mostly this hotel seems to be used for one/two nights by coach parties for whom this would be unnecessary. We made good use of this, although we did eat out one night at an original fish and chip shop (The Best Café opened in 1932). The staff were very...
