I startyed here with my family and friends very recently. We had 4 rooms between us and each one of the rooms were huge. What a nice surprise to find rooms that actually fit all your luggage and extra visitors. Couldn't fault the staff, everyone we met were happy to help and seemed to really want to be at work. They loved their jobs

Room Tip: We had the 6 and 7th floor rooms. They were large and the corner rooms triple the size

We stayed here in August for a conference and were impressed with the decor and the service. The rooms at the top with a balcony and great view are huge, with lots of room to spread out for my daughter who was doing her homework all over the floor. The furnishing is modern and luxurious. The staff were acomodating and nice and very quick to fetch our car every time we went out, which was often. Great location. Comfy comfy beds and pillows. The breakfast buffet is ok and I liked the option of purchasing just the hot foods half since I don't eat all the carbs in the pastries and breads. That was nice.

Stayed on business for a week, extremely comfortable bed, quite noisy due to proximity of the lift . Room service excellent with very good food quality. Well situated for access to all the amenities and attractions of the CBD and easy access to all the major roads out of town.

Room Tip: Worth the extra corridor walk for a room at the farthest point from the lift. Minimum noise.

Stayed here for a single night on a business trip. The bed was very comfortable the hotel overall is noisy - both noise from outside and the internal corridor traffic. The bathrooms are also very dated also, and the shower didn't have very good pressure.
The restaurant food which I ordered for room service was delicious though and of excellent quality.

Dear thelawsons_nz,

Thanks very much for taking the time to post a review of your recent stay with us. It was great to read that you found our beds very comfortable and our room service food delicious, and we are sorry that you experienced some noise issues. I am concerned that you found your shower pressure to be not that good - as we do get many positive comments about our shower pressure - would you please mind e-mailing us on dunedin.city@scenichotels.co.nz and letting us know your room number and/or name so we can go and check your actual room? Many thanks in advance and we look forward to hosting you again sometime in the future.

Kind regards. Greg

Travelling alone and stayed overnight on a business trip. Warmly received with quick check in. Room was well presented and nice, and warm. Dined alone in the hotel restaurant relatively late, which wasn't a problem for staff. Bed was wonderful, warm and soft. A little bit of noise overnight but nothing significant. Easy walking distance to some great old buildings and the Octagon. Staff were friendly and very helpful throughout. Breakfast was great value for money as was the wifi. Keen to return again.

Upon arrival we were welcomed with an upgrade on the room, the room was heated for our comfort and the lights on so it would be inviting and it was. We also stayed at the other Scenic in Dunedin and were not disappointed as both were excellent.
The beds were super comfortable and the little gift bags to steal away the little shampoo bottles was an awesome gesture.
Well done - will look out for this chain of Hotel again.
