We needed somewhere to stay prior to catching an early morning flight back to Australia and found the Victoria online. The room was comfortable but there was no aircon in the room and it was a a hot night in Dunedin...go figure! We both had poor sleeps as a result! The bathroom tiles were quite dirty...no excuse for that! Staff... More

We were fortunate enough to be upgraded to the newest part of the Hotel, recently constructed, which was very nice. All the staff at this Hotel were very helpful and polite. the room had all amenities that you may require, and is in a very good location in the centre of Dunedin, which is a very pleasant town.

Out of my comfort zone, travelling alone since the death of my beloved husband, I was absolutely in 7th heaven staying here, large rooms, up on the 3rd floor with views over the hospital and Forsyth Barr spans. Meryl Langdon (Tokoroa)

Excellent Location. So close to CBD. just stroll to the train station, or the CBD or Cadbury World. The hotel itself was very clean, and inviting. Although there was no air condition in our room, but we did have our window open. Just happened to turn up on a real hot day. Would definitely stay again.

After being really cold in Invercargill the day before, we arrived in Dunedin during a very warm day. No AC made it warm when trying to sleep but it eventually cooled off.

Stayed one night as part of a tour. Room was good enough, but outdated, lighting poor as outside window was a brick wall. Beds were really soft and comfortable! Bathroom clean and well equipped. Breakfast buffet good, nandos restaurant in same building convenient. across the road from the Cadbury factory which was fun!
