“Central location but....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

We recently stayed here for 4 nights arriving on a Friday. The staff were friendly enough. Our room was on the 4th floor at the front of the building. We could see the Sky tower from our window. The room was a studio with a queen size bed which was very comfortable, having a feather quilt under the bottom sheet. The room itself was very.......compact. The kitchenette had all we needed and the bathroom was a reasonable size, but the overall size of the room was very tight. It was an L shape room with 2 lounge chairs and tv and the bed was crammed in almost against the wall. Overall it was ok but the worst part was the noise from the busy street outside. Being a weekend there was plenty of traffic zooming up and down plus as the night wore on the pedestrians were very vocal as well. Needless to say there wasnt much sleep to be had that first night, so in the morning we bought earplugs as a priority!!
There were plenty of small restaurants up the street within walking distance. Mainly Korean, Japanese and Thai with the odd Indian thrown in as well. The main shopping area was just down the road with other options for a quick meal.

Room Tip: Maybe a room at the back of the building would have been quieter

Room was fine with enough facilities. We had a good breakfast. We ate in the town there were plenty of places down by the harbour. The art gallery was nearby and impressive. The museum was in great setting in the park and had some amazing exhibits.

Room Tip: Can be noisier if on street side

We stayed here on a saturday night, we were in a room at the front, Over the road is some sort of night club ( we didn't know). At 12am the music started to blast, it was as though we were inside, it was unbelievable, It went on until 4.30am. My husband went to reception, and asked for us to be moved, and was told, they couldn't as it was full (I don't believe that it was). The next morning the manager told us they can't do anything about it as this club has a license. Perhaps informing your guests, could be a start.

For a city centre hotel this hotel was fine. Situated at the top end of the main street it was within easy walking distance of shops and restaurants. Our room was a suite with facilities for some self catering which we did not do as we were only there for one night. Breakfast was lovely - the stewed plums were to die for! Staff friendly and courteous.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

The Scenic is in a very central location in Auckland within convenient walking range of all points of interest.

We booked a suite with a galley kitchen. This allowed us to prepare a simple brekky and lunch to help save on costs.

We did have a few minor problems when we checked in and Nicholas was extremely helpful. All of our requests were cheerfully and promptly satisfied.

The rooms are clean and fairly spacious. The only downside is no tub and a shower that is very very narrow and small.

The restaurant in the hotel is pretty good and features a very reasonable special for dinner every night. We took advantage of the $12 pizza night.

Room Tip: Book a room on a higher floor and ask for a king size bed.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this hotel. Very clean and comfortable and the king size bed was the most comfortable we have ever experienced in any hotel world wide. The secret - a featherdown underlay. The staff were very welcoming and helpful and breakfast in the MLC Cafe was superb. We could not fault this hotel.
