Have to commend the staff for being so helpful with our late and eventful arrival. Great location and within walking distance to all the city landmarks. Rooms are very clean and very spacious. Stayed only one night but have lovely memories of the city.

Good location near the Octagon, though on the far side. Clean, impersonal, no lobby, best for business travelers and tour buses. In and out. Main bus transport stop is at the Octagon. Hotel is also within walking distance of several average restaurants.

Comfortable bed even with the overly fluffy underlay. Nice staff, clean and spacious room. Had everything provided and gave you a little bag to take soaps etc, home. Nice touch. Did not appreciate the extra cost of parking, $12 even with the added title of valet parking.

My stay in this hotel a month ago (August 9-11) was exceptional. The check-in was hassle free, the staff were nice and accommodating, the room was clean and spacious, and the hotel itself is just within a few meters from the Octagon, hence, the easy access to the restaurants and shopping areas. I will definitely stay here again.

After staying in a bad hotel in Queenstown, it was amazing to stay in such a great hotel. Huge room, great facilities, ridiculously comfortable bed! Close to the Casino, Brewery, Cadbury Factory & the Octagon. Loved our stay! Would visit again!

This Hotel is in a great location, a short walk to the Shopping Centres, the Cadbury Chocolate Factory & the Dunedin Railway Station, which is a beautiful building, worth checking out.The rooms are spacious & the Scenic Hotels are renown for their beds & they certainly live up to that reputation, heaven!

Located in the centre of Dunedin great for access to shops, bars, takeaways and restaurants all within walking distance. Good choice at breakfast. Large clean,comfortable and well maintained rooms although my room was above the main street I was not troubled by any noise.

I had an enjoyable 3 night stay here in August while I was in Dunedin for business. I remember staying at this hotel en the early 'noughties' when it had first been converted from an office block. I liked it then and coming back I still find it a very good quality 4 star hotel. I was in room 415... More

This is hands-down the BEST service i have ever received in a hotel. The staff were fantastic, and very obliging to all our requests. We required assistance with a family member in a wheelchair, and this was well looked after, especially by the concieges. This included taking time to show us several rooms and room combinations before we booked, to... More
