We stayed one night and had a room for 2 adults and 2 children, queen and 2 singles. It was great value for a hotel and a good size if a bit basic but for the price it was fine. Lovely service, good location. Would stay again next time we visit Dunedin.

Spent one night in Dunedin during a trip around the South Island and we couldn't have been happier with our choice of hotel. We had a two room suite on the 8th floor with a balcony and great views of the harbour. The rooms were huge, really well appointed and the bed was the most comfortable we slept in by... More

We stayed 1 night at the Scenic Hotel, Dunedin, following the great experience we had at the Scenic Hotel, Blenheim. However, we were underwhelmed with the standard of service from Management & Reception staff. One redeeming feature was that we did have a very nice dinner in the hotel dining room.

A great location, you are within walking distance of all the things to see in the city centere. The room I had was very well appointed and very large with windows that opened letting in the cool evening air and a nice view of the city. All in all it was very nice.

First time we have stayed in Dunedin & chose the Scenic Hotel Dunedin City mainly due to its proximity to the Octagon as we needed to be within walking distance of the Town Hall & Railway Station. We requested a Superior room with 2 Queen beds which were very comfortable. The room was large & facing the Harbour side. In... More

First time staying in this hotel in Dunedin. Was not disappointed. Had a huge room with all the required amenities, although a little disappointed that they couldn't accommodate my need for an extension cord to run my Laptop. Apparently all were in use in the conference room. Staff were professional and room service was prompt. Bed very comfortable. Would definitely... More

From the moment we arrived in the hotel we were impressed by the friendly and extremely helpful staff. They couldn't have done more for us, and nothing was too much trouble. We stayed the nights of February 8th and 9th, so whoever was on the front desk on those days, and the young guy who was doing the valet service... More

This hotel is over priced. Nice and clean hotel overall, but weak on customer service and no other notable amenities that justify a premium price.. Annoying internet usage rules that make little sense. All the requirements/options for internet basically add up to the customer pays more. Other Scenic hotels have been a good experience, this one did not impress us.
