Being bought up in the town I can tell you it's been there forever, however there has been decoration going on and the studios at the back are spacious and sparkling. They do seem frequently busy with people in town to visit relatives, or passing through. Staff friendly and helpful, and no noise issues

Friendly greeting and quick check in. Room was pretty much what you'd expect for a mid- range Motel. Very clean, comfortable bed, average size room. We enjoyed our one night here and would recommend the Viking Lodge Motel to others who are looking for good accommodations for a reasonable price.

My family and I recently needed a nights accommodation in Dannevirke urgently. I was able to organise this with ease via email. I had explained my families needs which included ensuring comfort and warmth for my baby. We arrived late that night and once we opened our room door I was greeted by a lovely warm room big enough for...

I had a room in the middle of the complex and...

We dropped into the Dannevirke Information Centre for some advice on where to stop for the night. We were told that there are 3 motels in Dannevirke, a "cheapy", The Viking Lodge, and a new motel, all of whom had similar pricing Despite the fact that we thought the Viking Lodge looked tired, we followed the advice of the Information...

Good motel to stay overnight right in the middle of town . The couple who run the motel are very helpful and I had one of the rear rooms that were renovated and quite large and with full kitchens . Only problem was the heater struggled with the -2c Dannevirke night (lucky had an electric blanket) and while the beds...

Exceptionally clean & tidy motel. Welcoming and helpful hosts & staff (room servicing staff extremely cheerful and efficient).

“Do not use the cheap room offered if you are elderly, it has a shower over a bath which could be difficult to enter and exit”

“Our unit was at back of complex and very quiet; think most units would be quiet except maybe the front one on the main highway.”
