My wife and I stayed here for one night at the end of our motorhome tour of New Zealand. The hotel had been recommended by our Trailfinders agent and we were not disappointed. We arrived early, 10.00am expecting to leave our cases before having a look round the city, check in time was 2.00pm.The lovely receptionist rearranged our booking so... More

We found the room musty smelling, probably from the drain in the bathroom. Also the carpets and upholstery were well due for a good clean, I know you prefer good comments for feedback but we couldn't find any. Sorry. We did speak with the duty manager before leaving. You have such a wonderful location and a spruce up would help... More

Ideally located on Queen St just a 10-15 min walk to the harbour. Charge for valet parking but on route of airport shuttle bus. Stayed twice in Feb 15. Both rooms a good size - can be interesting shape given the wedge-shaped building. Well equipped, spacious, comfortable, etc. Staff excellent; good breakfast in restaurant.

This hotel was not what we expected based on the description. It was located a long way from the harbor area and nice restaurants. The only restaurants close to the hotel were Asian restaurants. Our room was very small and the TV extended into the access area to the bathroom so that we had to be careful not to hit... More

Hi Thank you for staying with us and sharing your comments, I am sorry you were disappointed. From the hotel it's about a 15 minute walk to the waterfront, there is a very frequent bus service that picks up right at our entrance and only costs 50 cents. Our economy and standard rooms are around 25 sqm and superior rooms... More

the room 801 was stuck in between the lift and the external aircon of the big building next door. The noise is therefore extreme from both ends. Hard to sleep during the night. Other rooms may be better, but I doubt whether I'd give it another try.

First impression after long flight is not good - small unwelcoming reception area off a busy street. Seems a little austere at first. However the reception staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. The room was a surprise after our first impression - large room with kitchen facilities, table and chairs, sitting area and a bedroom area. We found the room... More

Excellent hotel located in centre with Waterfront a 10 minute walk away. Airport shuttle buses stop immediately outside the hotel which was excellent. Integral Restaurant was good food and value. Helpful staff. Would recommend to anyone

The Scenic is in a restored art deco building. The rooms are suites with a separate bedroom and a kitchenette. Be aware there isn't any air conditioning. The hotel is convenient to the wonderful Asian restaurants on upper Queen Street, K Street and the rest of downtown. Also be aware there is no parking except for valet.

Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to comment. All our rooms have air conditioning with individual control panels in each room so I'm not sure how you thought we did not have air conditioning. We do not have self parking but our valet parking is only $20 per day. Thank you for your feedback. Kind regards... More

Room was tastefully decorated and an adequate size for 2 people. The double bed was too small for us, we're used to a King, although the feather topper made us feel at home. The shower cubical was ridiculously small and you could barely turn around. I knocked the shelf off with my elbow twice and I'm small so definitely not... More
