We stopped here for 2 nights and were very pleased with our choice. Clean, confortable and very well presented. Friendly and helpful managers. Location is great, handy to resraurants, main roads, central city attractions. Really solid walls keep it quiet. Good, private bar for a relaxing drink at the end if the day.

We spent just one night in this wonderful hotel that has been beautifully restored and maintained. Our room was immaculate and comfortable with a renovated, modern bathroom. The period detail in the common rooms is fabulous..so charming. Good continental or fully cooked breakfasts are on offer. Parking is across the street. Easy walk to several restaurants. The museum and Queen's...

I had done my research for accommodation in Invercargill and the Victoria Railway Hotel jumped out as the perfect place to rest the head and think back over 130 years of history. We were welcomed by Tom and Rose like long lost friends and from that moment everything was perfect. The rooms were spacious and comfortable - best bed ever...

Only had one night here but what a beautiful Hotel it was! This is a boutique Hotel with great decor and modern utilities to boot. It is centrally located in the city, walking distance to the night spots, movies, shopping. The host was friendly and most helpful and we would definitely stay there again if the opportunity arose :)

We wanted to stay in a non corporate style hotel so this hotel seemed a good bet and it was. When we arrived , although it's not exactly in a scenic spot the interior exudes a bygone Victorian age through a good restoration. Our room was not in the least Victorian , the bed was excellent and the fittings in...

We were lucky to stay here for 1 night after a late cancellation. It has character and very friendly hosts.The whitebait fritters and our new Aussie friends were great!!! The hotel has been tastefully upgraded and yet still retains some old charm.

Clean room. The bathroom recently renovated. Downstairs dining room very nicely decorated. The wifi worked perfectly in our room. Several dining options in the vicinity. Lady in reception couldn't tell us where to park which was odd since we later found out the hotel has large parking area just on the other side of the street. All in all a...

We spent two nights at the hotel in a good sized room with all facilities, a short walk to restaurants, cafés and attractions. The hosts were friendly and helpful and carparking was right outside the door. The internet was great, as was breakfast downstairs. The hotel has an old worldy feel to it but the facilities are modern.
