Victor Lodge is closing permanently today (11 Dec 2015) to be replaced by new residential housing. We thoroughly enjoyed our week there, as the location was perfect for walking to various Canberra attractions.

Thank you Barbara and the hundreds of thousands of fabulous guests we hosted over the 22 years. The nice people we encountered made our long stay possible and a lifetime experience........some of the others made it interesting but not as enjoyable. Thanks to all of those with a clear perception of realty! Graham and Lee-Anne Former operators of Victor Lodge...

Very good place to stay outside your home. Very clean, safe neighborhood and amenities are okay. So near to some places of interest like the Parliament House, the National Library, the National Archives, the National Art Gallery... There are small shops nearby which can answer your shopping needs. I was happy with my stay at the lodge

The place has a homey and welcoming atmosphere. It's a good place to rest after a day of exploring. The clean and heated shared toilets and bathrooms doesn't feel sufficient at first but I didn't encounter a queue during my 2 nights stay there. The room is clean, doesn't really look old or smell old and the beddings are clean....

Simple and sufficient breakfast. Clean room and I was impressed by the clean shared bathrooms. It is located close to the city (hop on a bus) and has a small shopping centre behind. I was most impressed with the kind lady who gave me a spare MyWay card for free upon check-in! Wonderful service!

Loud and noisy all night every night. I am generally a deep sleeper but you can hear every single time somebody up the other end of the corridor goes to the toilet and shuts their door. Cleaners were banging clanking and talking outside our door every day at unreasonable times in the morning, I could understand after 9 but around...

Hello HollidayLover. This review has me a little stumped I am afraid. Without your personal details I can not refer to any specific dates or rooms. Our cleaners do not start work till at least 8.30am and are not out cleaning rooms till after 9am so that they do not disturb guests before checkout at 10 am. We offer a...

Far from bust station but close to the train, clean, quiet and best option for our budget. Great kitchen facilities. Wished we had known about bike hire option. Great responsive service. Would go back anytime.

We stayed here for just one night, passing through on the way down to Melbourne. Wish we were staying longer- very comfy beds, immaculate rooms and facilities, and best included breakfast we've come across in Australia! Location was ideal too, very easy to find.

Be aware, I didn't see it, although the location is very good, the bed was very comfortable, the bathroom and toilet is shared, the staff were excellent. There is a good selection of restaurants very close as well.
