We stayed at the hotel two nights. The room was really nice. The location was great. We were able to walk to a nice place to have dinner and visit a portion of the city. The restaurant was good. We enjoyed the desserts. Bath robes were nice for us foreign travels carrying minimal luggage. If ever in Dunedin again, we would stay at this hotel again. We really enjoyed visiting the city.

Stayed here on a Saturday and Sunday night. Slept well and not troubled by city noises despite it's location in town. Good quality fittings, the bath robes are a nice touch of luxury. The room was spotlessly clean. The reception staff were friendly and efficient.

We live in Dunedin but decided to stay at the Southern Cross as a treat for our anniversary. The room was fantastic. Lovely comfy super king bed. Luxurious bath robes and towels. Nice clean rooms and the service was amazing, very friendly and helpful. We were treated like royalty and are planning to stay there again even though we live in the same city.

For me when on business my accommodation is of top priority, I choose to stay at The Scenic Southern Cross because it offers me comfort, security and the hospitality one expects when away from home as often as I am. I now bring my wife with me so she too can enjoy the many comforts the Hotel offers. If its a comfortable bed and a soft pillow you want look no further than the Southern Cross. Of course your stay starts and ends at the reception desk. The staff have never been friendlier and we do enjoy the welcome back which given with genuine warmth.

Room Tip: We enjoy the corner suite, ithey have more and the views out weigh any extra street noise.

We have stayed at the Southern Cross several times, and loved the huge super king size bed.
It was supremely comfortable, and the pillows also. The booking was a breeze, and the staff were all very helpful. We will certainly stay there again.
