On arrival we were greeted by a pleasant young lady who checked us in. We were then informed that there would be a charge of $10 to park our car. I felt this could either have been advertised when booking or included in their charge for a stay not a nice surprise.The room was pleasant and the beds comfortable however...

Dear Dave H, thank you for sharing your experience with us. I am sorry to hear that the car parking fee was a surprise for you. This charge is advertised on every website through which we sell our rooms however it is normally in the fine print on these third party websites and difficult to find. However, if you choose...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 30 March 2017

In a last-minute arrangement, I managed to book a room at the Victoria Hotel. We had stayed there many times previous, but this city is so often short of accommodation there are never any certainties. "No problem" was the result of my contact. The hotel itself has grown immensely in size and popularity and service continues to improve in professionalism...

We spent a week here in a superior king room in the new wing which faced on to St Andrews Rd . Was great with the morning sun streaming in, warm and cosy. So centrally situated with bus stops and 2 supermarkets just around the corner, the main shopping area, railway station and restaurants a short walk away. The bedding...

The rooms are clean and well maintained, though a rubber mat would have made showering in the bath safer. Good location too. BUT we had breakfast in the restaurant and the buffet cooked breakfast included scrambled eggs so burnt that I thought it was a mixture of eggs and mushrooms. They were burned black and absolutely inedible. When we brought...

Location of this is hotel is ideal for a short visit to Dunedin. Octagon and restaurants all within walking distance. Clean and well appointed rooms. Room was of a reasonable size. Only issue I had was having to pay for a carpark which is not something you expect outside of Auckland.

Only hundreds of metres from both the Railway Station and the Octagon. The room was good and included tea and coffee making facilities. The front desk were helpful and allowed us to leave bags while we looked around town. What wasn't so good was the $50 they wanted for a late check out:-(
