Stayed here for one night as part of a tour of NZ. Very clean, well appointed rooms and public areas. Excellent WiFi. Centrally located property easy walks to all major attractions. Don't bother with the Cadbury tour it's useless, just use the money to buy chocolate! Only downside at the hotel was severe congestion at checkout time, need more receptionists... More

We spent 2 days in Dunedin. Town itself doesn't offer so many attractions. All you can do it in one day. Accommodation was nice, super quickly elevator, great beds, very spacious. We loved parking service.

We were allocated Rook 101. It was a large well appointed room BUT it is on the lowest level for road noise, facing west and right next to the lifts and at the end of the air conditioning ducting. The lifts were noticeable but the people making excessive noise waiting for the lifts was very disturbing during the night. The... More

From the knowledgeable reception staff to the friendly (and very efficient) chamber staff everyone is friendly and helpful. A lovely room ( with a view) and lots of space for a family of three. The only thing I would change is the door to the room isn't very good at stopping noise from the corridor. People just talking in a... More

You cannot fault the location in the heart of the central city Rooms are well appointed and appear recently refurbished. Car parking is valet-only. And costs an extra $13 per day. Tea and coffee making facilities are provided along with the usual over-priced mini bar

Be aware that there are two Scenic hotels within a block or so of each other. Very central so no parking, valet parking a necessity . But a nuisance knowing what was best way to pull over to actually book in, unload bags, etc. we had a one bed roomed suite, this was great, roof top balcony, very spacious. Don't... More
