We were looking at booking a Mystery Hotel on Wotif and a Google search made us suspect that the Scenic Hotel was the 4+ star mystery hotel. However luckily for us finding their website made us realise that the "Take a Break" package they were offering directly via their website was much better value than the Wotif deal! This package was $189 and included: the room with late checkout, free (semi-valet) parking, a bottle of wine & a $80 in-house food credit. Taking all these 'extras' into account this meant the room only cost us around $50 for the night - amazing value!
We arrived early (11am) and got an early check in which was really appreciated. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful and check in was fast & efficient.
The room was great - nice and spacious with a really good kitchenette and lounge. We had requested a quiet room and were given a room on the 3rd floor overlooking a small side street which was perfect - still some mild traffic noise but nothing that disturbed our sleep.
The bed was divine with crisp white bedding, the most amazing feather topper and lovely fluffy pillows - we didn't want to get out !!!
The shower had amazing water pressure and the complimentary toiletries (soap, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion, shower cap & shoe shine) were the best I've ever been given in a hotel - lovely organic quality - a really nice touch.
We used our $80 credit to have two meals (evening meal & breakfast) in the attached MLC Cafe & Bar and had two good meals. My only criticism is that the wait staff here were a bit slow & not particular enthusiastic about their jobs!
Overall we really enjoyed our stay at this hotel - it was a great location for our evening show at the The Civic Theatre and made a wonderful base to explore downtown Auckland. We would definitely stay here again.
