Could not imagine a more convenient place to stay in Canberra.Close to shops, restaurants and transport. The staff were very helpful, the rooms and facilities were very clean. Breakfast was excellent - with access to tea and coffee at all times. The kitchen was well equipped, with fridge and freezer space. Sharing facilities was really not a major inconvenience.Still the... More

The room and amenities were clean and adequate. The dining room was excellent. It was great to be able to make a cup of tea at any time and to have access to the kitchen and guest fridge. The staff were very friendly, obliging and helpful. The bus timetable was a real bonus. I would have liked a bit more... More

Great place to stay: friendly staff, terrific coffee and breakfasts, nice location, use of a well-equipped kitchen, laundry, quiet at night - which you can't say of most hotels that I've tried in Canberra. Definitive my place to stay when I'm in Canberra!

A great review... thank you very much. We try to provide quality at a budget price...even to coffee and breakfast items. The quietness is due to other guests being considerate of others which is appreciated. We have shared bathroom facilities and common kitchen and dining area so behaviour which is mindful of others makes a big difference to all. Pleased... More

Breakfast included in the rate, which usually doesnt happen in this b&b´s and we loved it. It was a very good breakfast!!! Fabulous staff, friendly and giving indications with a smile always (night shift guy very attentive). Rooms a bit small, but you dont need more space when you are at the room just to sleep and rest. Comfy beds.... More

For several weeks the Victor Lodge served as home away. Aside from the cleanest accommodation ever experienced the 'at home' atmosphere was greatly appreciated due to the attention to breakfast and always available staff. I'd judge this accommodation somewhere between a backpackers hostel and a roadside economy motor-inn. Location is outstanding for access via foot or bus to the majority... More

Very nice staff. Good breakfast. If you are first time to live in Canberra for a long time to choose here. You can walk to the capital and griffin lake. The Kingston shop centre is near from here. The wifi is good.

Welcoming and close to Kingston shops and public transport. It felt like a home away from home for the 6 days we spent there, and the all you can eat breakfast had a great range of options to choose from.

Thanks Helen for your very kind review. We try to make guests feel at home so we succeeded in your case.

The stay was great value for a budget price.

Thanks Phil for a great review. You are spot on. Our place is not new but it should be friendly and efficient and represent value. Breakfast is an important factor and we provide quality items in a simple breakfast.....cereals, fruit, yoghurt, juices, toasts and toppings as well as the all day tea and coffee. Hope you can visit again. Graham More

This is a good budget option in Canberra located next to the Kingston shops. The staff and reception were friendly and helpful. I stayed in a twin room which was basic but clean. The biggest problem is that each floor (with about 28 rooms each) only appears to have two toilets and bathroom/showers for use by all the guests on... More
