Stayed at Victor Lodge for an extended period of time - comfortable, friendly and helpful staff, everything was very clean, and the breakfast was great. Would definitely stay again, and recommend to others

Canberra is an expensive city, not least for accommodation and taxis. There is very limited budget accommodation for single travellers and Victor Lodge is the cheapest I know of. At times the price is lower - e.g. on my latest visit on a Saturday night in winter. (Couples can find cheaper with the Youth Hostel Association.) The hostel is a... More

Victor Lodge was excellent in value and service. The staff was super nice and the facilities were super clean. Also the location was excellent right in the middle of Kingston neighborhood. The only cons were the rooms would sometimes get too hot with the heating in the winter and the walls are really thin and so you would hear everything...

I had to stay here for a week of business in Canberra when the city was cramped with a couple of events. I got a single room with shared bathroom/shower next door. All in all the place is good; staff is friendly and helpful and the location is nice and very quiet. Breakfast leaves much to be desired but then,... More

I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel. The staff were friendly and polite. The rooms were small but clean and had a lovely fragrance. The bedding was lovely. Meals included..... would stay here again when visiting Canberra - absolutely. 5 stars! No comparison between the 'Mint Hotel' on St. Kilda Rd Melbourne - don't ever stay there!!!

Good room, feel like home and easy reservation. Good transportation for taxi and public transport..Beautiful scenery in the vicinity of lodging and desolate neighborhood. Only 20 minutes to Canberra Airport, 10 minutes to the Parliament and the National Museum of Australia.

Check in was smooth, rooms were clean. You get a peaceful sleep at night but boy are those taps noisy. And if you neighbor is noisy, you get a heap of noise from the walls and his taps! I stayed for 3 nights, and my biggest complaint was leave the heater on people! It was -4c the time I was... More

Victor Lodge has a warm welcome and warm rooms for regular, short-term stays, and is a short walk from the railway station. (The train from Sydney gives four hours of peaceful work time each way and definitely beats driving.) The rooms are clean and comfortable with a vanity basin, while showers and toilets are just down the corridor, also clean... More

I spent a long weekend in Canberra and needed a place with central location but I did not want to spend a fortune on accommodation. Location is great, breakfast super yummy (great porridge!), I hired a bike at the Lodge and could get easily everywhere. Staff was very friendly, and I had good two nights sleep. Very good budget accommodation.

Victor lodge exceeded my expectations. The room was clean and tidy. The bed was very comfortable and the shared bathroom was basic but clean. Breakfast was yummy and loved the all you can drink tea and coffee. What a great stay.
