Good value overall as the breakfast and the wifi are included. It is also walking distance to some good restaurants.It is next door to a Best Western motel. I did not like the "shared bathroom" idea but it worked well as did the breakfast?

Definitely value for money. Good breakfast spread - even included Nutella! My single room is very basic, but then again I didn't do much at night in the Lodge. The restaurants are all within 5 min walk and by the time I'm finished there, I 'm just back to sleep. But there's also the TV room or dining area to... More

good if you're looking for an accommodation near the governmental buildings. not recommended in the case you're after the city life...admitting that you could actually find city life in Canberra! average room, nice staff, shared showers, free breakfast from 8 to 10.

Nice staff, warm room, clean, good breakfast, easy to reach location, parking available. Good location outside of the CBD but still very easy to get there. In a lively area with nice bars, restaurants and pubs around. Quiet environment and well served.

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!!!
