Scenic Hotel Southern Cross

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Booked the hotel last minute and got a decent rate. The location was very convenient and I found the neighborhood safe to walk at night. There is a casino, restaurant and bar in the hotel but these were separate from my wing of the hotel, which was right above the lobby. I found the room to be sufficient and a good size. I particularly liked that the beds were full double beds, not twins. The bathroom was a bit small, but sufficient. Good hotel to stay for a night in Dunedin

The hotel is fabulous for the price - the bed was so comfortable and we had organic shampoos/conditioners, etc provided. Excellence in details! Highly recommend!
