“Great stay, accommodating staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

This was a good stay the only hassle is filling out a review like this one that requires two hundred characters minimum. Not many reviews get the check boxes I filled out so in future my first comment of 'easy no hassle stay' should actually be enough.

We have stayed at the Scenic hotel several times and are always pleased in our selection. We consider the hotel to be great value for money. The shoppers delight which we have purchased several times is particularly great value. The welcome is always warm and the beds are always comfortable. The location of the hotel is second to none especially if you are planning
such activities as a night at the opera, the civic, catching the bus to an AB test, or any other Auckland activity. The Scenic is our first choice when visiting Auckland.

The hotel rooms and beds are comfortable and the staff are helpful and friendly. Rooms on the Queen Street side can be a bit noisy, but I guess that's what you expect in the middle of the city. I stay here every time I'm on business in Auckland.

Nice hotel for the price and especially considering the location. Staff were also very helpful and pleasant. Was tidy and clean, and overall pleasant to stay in.

Also support the Kakapo Recovery which is a great cause, and any hotel with kakapos in the reception is a great tick in my book. Missed out on enjoying the 'Sirocco Sundae' due to time, will definitely try it next time though.

The Scenic Hotel met my needs while staying in Auckland on business. The room was tidy and clean. Suggestion that the shower could do with an upgrade, water trickled out. Didn't enjoy the breakfast or dinner, but the service was friendly and timely.

Best place I have stayed and very central, walk to the bottom of town and catch the bus back, used to be free not sure now

We booked this in advance for Friday 27 June to go to the Beatles and spend a weekend in town, unbeknown to me I was booked for chemotherapy on the Thursday, which made me very unwell Saturday. An approach to reception on Saturday cancelled the balance of our stay thank you very much.We will defiantly be coming back for another weekend when I get well.

Room for two on the 28th June 2014. On the 7th floor.
Hotel is a refurbished office building. The refurbishment is good enough and was clean and tidy.
Cost about $150 and breakfast chucked in.
Staff at reception were very helpful and nice to deal with - well done.
Room was cosy (small), and well laid out. Very clean and tidy. Double bed a bit small, but a larger one would not have fit. Lucky we are not too tall.
Hotel is very central in the Auckland CBD. Civic Theatre, the Aotea Centre and the Town Hall are all just across the road. Nice.
Parking is valet parking, so get all your gear out of your car first!
Breakfast was good, and again, staff there were very nice.
Overall, a nice stay and I would recommend this place.
