I live in Dunedin so don't often get to stay in local hotels but it snowed and I left it too late to get home. The Victoria was about the cheapest last minute place so I thought I'd give it a go. The place seemed to be deserted - I only ever saw the two reception staff, no other guests. The room has evidently been recently refurbished and was fairly large, with two double beds. The one I slept in was particularly comfortable. The best thing about the hotel is its location - close to the Octagon for dinner and to the University for work.
The one slight black mark was the furniture: the room was quite wide to accommodate the two beds, with the flatscreen TV on the wall, facing the beds but halfway between them. Good if both beds are occupied I guess but not optimal viewing if there's just one of you using the room. This would have been solved by having a chair or two between the beds (there was room) but the only chair was a single wooden kitchen chair.
