I really enjoyed my stay at the Scenic Hotel Dunedin City. It is a couple minutes walk away from the Octagon and the Speights Ale House. The bedroom in the suite is super dark, bed was very comfortable. Check in was quick ,easy and friendly as was the check out. I didn't like that they didn't reply to my emails... More

We spent one night in the Scenic Hotel Dundedin as part of our NZ tour. We found the room very comfortable. We also enjoyed the dinner in the restaurant. This hotel is a good option for Dundedin - we recommend it.

Great location close to the Octagon. Lovely triple room which was very comfortable. Beds were really comfortable I would have taken it home if I could. Staff friendly and helpful. Have stayed before and would definitely stay again.

Not sure if we got a free upgrade but we were in a huge room with twin king beds on a high floor with great views over the harbour. It was a great room. The only downfall was a slightly mediocre bathroom, but it was functional and clean. All the staff were great too. The location also is perfect. Highly... More

The hotel is in a very good location. Room was nice and clean, and our room had a great view. There is parking at the hotel but they told us we have to pay for parking, luckily we found free parking outside as it was public holiday. Breakfast was good.

Our room was quite big, we had a double bed and two singles plus a cot and still had room for kids to play. It was very clean and had a good wifi connection (which is free). Location was good as we could walk to the museum and Cadbury factory.

I enjoyed three nights in the Scenic Hotel Dunedin City. Great location and no street noise. The room was an ample size and the bed was exceptionally comfortable -- the best hotel bed I've stayed in. The staff were friendly and the service was helpful, even holding up the airport shuttle for 5 minutes while I dashed back from another... More

On the down side the bed was not very comfortable. However laundry facilities were excellent available on level 2 and 5. Room a good size, and furniture comfie. Lovely to listen to the bells pealing on a church nearby on Sunday afternoon. Room was really hot when we came in, made us sweat. Even sleeping with window open did not... More
