We stayed here a couple of times whilst visiting our daughter who is at Otago university. Very welcoming and helpful staff. First we stayed in the new building. Very comfortable spacious and modern rooms with great facilities. Second visit here we stayed in the main building. One of the bedrooms was a bit small but we had a good size lounge and kitchen. All very comfortable. Would have liked heating in the bathroom. The restaurant food is excellent, especially the chicken filo parcel. Breakfast was also good. We had the continental. Plenty of choice. Only slight downside was not really enough restaurant staff. Hotel is in a good central position and car parking is well worth it. Will definitely be back!

Good location, within walking distance to few attractions, railway station. Short walk to a big supermarket and Cadbury factory. Hotel restaurant has bar & café plus Nandos is adjoined to it. Room is spacious & comfortable. We had a double and a triple share rooms. The reception is friendly and helpful with my request for info to nearby attractions. Free wfi, but parking is charge at NZ10 per day even for hotel staying guests.

Lovely Hotel, beautiful rooms and comfy beds! The staff are fantastic and very friendly. The food is fabulous and the breakfast buffet is superb! The hotel in right in the centre of the city so easy access to everything.Great parking and facilities

Very good value for money. Clean rooms with amazing bed, so so comfy and quiet rooms. Very helpful and friendly staff. The bed configuration was not right when arrived but they fixed it promptly with no issues, thanks. I’d stay here again.

Booked into the Victoria Hotel as friends were staying there to go to the seafood festival with us. They arrived earlier in the day, we arrived late afternoon. We were in the 'older part of the hotel, but the room was fine. One queen bed & a single bed in our room, two comfy chairs & coffee table as well as a desk & chair. Bathroom had shower over the bath, which for me is not the best, had a fixed shower head, I prefer a detachable shower head. We had room service breakfast on the second morning which was fine. Great location to shops & restaurants. Would stay here again, no problem!

Excellent service combined with a very clean well appointed near new room.The location was very close to the Central business District and easy walking distance to the key retail shops & cafe/restaurants.

Spent 2 nights in Dunedin and stayed here at the Victoria hotel. No complaints whatsoever, very central to town, walking distance to all ammenities. Staff are excellent, rooms were clean and quiet. would highly recommend it.

Arrived after midnight and were able to check in at reception. Nice they have 24/7 coverage. Booked this place as it's nice and central and we didn't want to pick up our hire car yet. This worked out well for us. Saw and did all we wanted just fine. Place is ageing a little but looks to be maintained. It was clean. Somehow we fluked the 'penthouse'. Not really what you'd think of as one as it's quite small. It's also one floor above the lift so you take the stairs up one flight. Can be tough with lots of heavy luggage. As we've seen often in NZ the staff are really helpful. Thank you. We'd stay again.

But no better either. Spartan room in the old part of the hotel. They have built a new wing but my understanding is that those are more expensive. I tend to book through one of the hotel aggregators and only get a standard room so perhaps better chance of getting one of the better rooms if going directly - certainly a free upgrade was not forthcoming even though the hotel was quite quiet. I don't believe I will stay here again. 1894

A very pleasant Hotel to stay in. A warm welcome greets you by staff at this friendly hotel. Situated opposite Cadbury World and only a very short walk to shops and many eateries. Hotel also has its own restaurant. About a 15 min walk to Coach Station. There is two sides to this Hotel, one old, one new. Stayed in older style room but found it spacious, very clean and warm. Could be a bit hot in summer as no air conditioner in room. New side must have one, you would have to check. Housekeeping does a very good job on the cleanliness of the rooms. Toiletries not too bad either, better than some pricier hotels. Price paid was good.
