Scenic Hotel Dunedin City

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This is an ideal hotel if you're travelling in the area. It's in the city centre; walkable to the majority of the city's sights. The valet parking is extra. The room was clean and tidy, with super comfortable beds. A nice restaurant downstairs for breakfast. The staff were friendly. I would recommend

A straight forward honest hotel that’s not pretentious. Just right for a short stay. The room is very spacious, bathroom large and clean with plenty of water pressure. An important detail when my wife washes her long hair. Scenic is in a good central location with a good variety of restaurants some just across the street. We had a comfortable stay on. A king bed. I recommend this hotel.

This to me is the ideal hotel. Friendly staff on the front desk, a large room that is very clean with modern touches without trying to be uber cool. A nice bathroom with a proper sink you can have a shave in without having to run a dam full of water to get an inch and a large very comfortable bed. The best touch I thought was that you park outside in the space provided and they valet park your car for you at less than what you'd normally pay to park your car yourself at most hotels. It's right in the centre of the city so there was noise from the street but that is not the hotels fault and I would definitely stay here again if we are in Dunedin.

My most memorable thought on the Scenic Hotel at Dunedin was the comfy cloud-like mattress.......the best sleep I've had in a long time. Couple that, with a very good central city location and nice friendly staff & I'd say it's a pretty good choice for a hotel to stay at......

The staff at the front desk was very nice...One got me on wifi when I was having trouble ...The room was huge and the view was very nice...The location was close to everything! We enjoyed our stay very much and highly recommend this hotel!

Great location. Big comfortable room. Nothing special about decor, or style. Pretty ordinary. Service was good, but breakfast was just okay. Coffee was terrible. Room very clean. Really large bathroom. Comfortable bed.

Friendly, welcoming, efficient staff. Comfortable warm room. which is well equipped. Doing their best to be very environmentally conscience. best of all individual service and generally very good food, in a very convenient location in central Dunedin. I stay here very regularly and the service is very consistent.

Every time we stay at our Scenic city it turns up trumps... That's why we call it ours. This is the only hotel we stay out if we have to overnight in Dunedin. Friendly and keen to help at reception, great rooms everytime, but especially when we received an upgrade this September 2017. All good. Gold.

great place to stay. weekend buffet $20 fabulous extra. location to shopping and speights ale house excellent. friendly staff. Casino so close and a must, good food there too and ODT a bonus in the morning. Bed lovely and comfy

Great friendly staff who were welcoming and efficient. Nothing was a bother for them. Handy location.Well presented rooms that are comfortable and have a great range of connectivity to the large screen tv. I made use of the free wifi access, a real bonus. Definitely stay there again
