“Very central.”
Reviewed 11 March 2013

It is next door to Cadbury Chocolate factory. Supermarket is just round the corner. Good free wifi at the lobby. Clean room and toilet/bathroom. Mattress is a little on the soft side. A few minutes walk to the city/Octagon. Staff at reception friendly and helpful. Walk to Botanic Gardens is about 25-30 minutes and in between is Otago University. Intercity Coach terminal is just behind this hotel.

We often stay at the Victoria when we are in Dunedin. It is good value for money and is close to town with off street parking. The complex is always very clean and tidy, and the staff are always amazing! If you aren't used to road noise, the one-way roading system could be a little disruptice, but none the less we would recommend anyone staying here!

Central to everything - Cadbury chocolate / Speights tour, octagon, shops, supermarkets, restaurants, pubs, university, bus depot and railway station all within 10min walk. Very friendly front desk staff. Bathroom is new and nice. Room is a little dated but very clean and lots and lots of space.... plenty of car parking... Breakfast was of very generous amount. Nandos attached to hotel has great atmosphere, good food and good service.

My title sums it all up. An easy walk to the Otago University campus and located in the heart of downtown. Easy access to routes out of town and to the peninsular. On-site retaurant which we did not have a chance to sample.

The staff at The Victoria Hotel went out of their way to make our wedding day a special one! Their prices were very reasonable and the staff were always friendly and extremely helpful.

The function room was a large room that is closed off from the rest of the hotel. Lovely lighting and marble walls. There is a bar in the function room and new, clean bathrooms. So everythng you need is right there.

The menu was customised to our budget and the food was in abundance. The Chef at the hotel, Carl Hatfield, did an amazing job. The food was delicious, we had 4 different mains to choose from and not one of our guests had any complaints, lots of compliments.

I would recommend this Hotel to any bride that is looking for a beauitful, affordable reception venue where the quality of service and food is high.

Spacious, clean rooms in a great location. Decor is quite dated but still pleasent enough.

Exceptional service from Ian (staff member) who provided and installed a DVD player in our room for us at no charge. Unfoirtunatekly the cleraning staff were not as dedicated. They never return to clean our room ince we vacted it at 11:00am.

No airconditioning in rooms and if you opened the ranch slider or windows it was very noisy.

Dear Sheppard

Thank you for staying with us.
I am sorry to hear that our housekeepers did not return to your room. Our cleaning procedure so far is not to disturb the guests if they are still in the room during the cleaning time, and the housekeepers will leave a tray of the replacement amenities outside of the room for the guests to pick up later. As you have brought up this incident, we will now review our procedure and enforce the housekeepers to go back to all the occupied/unattended rooms before they finish for the day.

The car park side of the rooms are away from the street and will be quieter, and we also have electric fans available from the reception. Please let us know at the time of your booking if you wish to be on the quieter side.

Kind regards
Management

This hotel was in a good central location and easy to find. There were some mix ups with our rooms but the staff went out of their way to fix them as quickly as they could. They were very friendly and helpful. A bonus was free wi-fi (up to $6/hour or non-existent at other places we stayed). There was a very good well priced family restaurant on the ground floor (Nandos) and we could get breakfast downstairs too. There was no problem with noise from customers at the restaurant or bar.
