    Ruthe Stein San Francisco Chronicle

    Unfortunately, Hotel de Love also has all the originality of an all-purpose valentine. First- time filmmaker Craig Rosenberg appears to have seen every relationship movie ever made. To his credit, he borrowed only from the best. show more

    Hotel de Love is a pleasant and sometimes funny film, without being completely satisfying. show more

    And, while it's not bad enough for me to suggest that it should have been left where it came from, this certainly isn't a shining example of Australian cinema. show more

    Writer/director Craig Rosenberg is no master of subtlety -- in fact, he seems to have only two settings, whacking excess and treacly pathos -- and the film is awash in ponderous whimsy. show more

    Stephen Holden The New York Times

    Hotel de Love, the directing and screenwriting debut of Craig Rosenberg, is like a Valentine's Day box of heart-shaped chocolates that all have the same too-sweet cherry fillings. show more

    Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago Reader

    Some of it looks like a TV commercial, and the characters' motivations could have been generated by a computer, but the cast--Ray Barrett, Julia Blake, Simon Bossell, Saffron Burrows, Pippa Grandison, and Aden Young--is attractive and energetic. show more

    Kevin Thomas Los Angeles Times

    The young stars are attractive and capable, but Hotel de Love is as synthetic as an old "Love Boat" episode. show more
