We loved the bed. It had some kind of a feather bed on top of the mattress. We loved it so much that the next morning we called up and asked for a late checkout so we could stay in ing longer.

The buffet breakfast was very nice and the staff were lovely.

The room was very well appointed and there was actual vanity space in the bathroom - a first on our trip.

Valet parking would have helped.

We would have liked to stay at this hotel for longer.

Dear Guest

Thank you for your comments and thank you for choosing the Scenic Hotel Southern Cross when you visited Dunedin. I am glad that you had such a good experience when staying with us and it is wonderful to hear another great comment about our beds.
I am sorry that you missed out on the valet parking. This service is always available and you just need to leave your car out the front of the Hotel and we will take it and park it for you so that you can just relax in to your room.

We hope to see you again soon.

With best wishes

Adrian

I stay at other hotels in NZ and Aussie, HK and China and this hotel would have the best beds..
This hotel has very nice well appointed rooms with LCD TV.
the bathroom has plenty of towels and all the vanity needs.
close walk to town and next door to the casino with good priced food.
and do i need to tell you about the bed again??

Room Tip: all rooms at this hotel are nice

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review and I am delighted that you enjoy your stays with us. Our bedding gets numerous comments about how comfortable it is - with feather duvets and feather bed toppers, both of which are available to buy so you can recreate the experience at home.

We look forward to seeing you again soon.

I have stayed at the Southern Cross on many occasions, sometimes with my wife, other times purely on business. The staff are very pleasant and the meals in the restaurant are first class. The Dunedin Casino is located inside the hotel for those wanting a quiet punt.

Very impressed. Had to book a room within one day for 2 Adults and 2 children. Most of the rooms were sold out but the room we had was more than adequate. Very clean, stylish, the staff were fantastic, never had valet parking but well worth it. Nothing was a problem especially when we were not able to get the TV going for the children. Staff came up straight away to deal with it, even had the option of changing room. Ordered room service for breakfast, on time and it was fantastic. My husband and I have stayed in a few hotels in Dunedin but this has been our best experience yet. We highly recommend Southern Cross for cleanliness, friendliness, great room, great customer service, everything was greeted with a smile. We will stay here again.

Room Tip: For a family, we would recommend an interjoining room, just gives you that space to yourself and your partner.

Dear Guest,

I am extremely pleased to hear that you had such an enjoyable stay. Valet parking is something we offer to all guests so that you can just leave your car at the front entrance and we will park it for you. This allows you to settle into your room straight away. Help is also on hand to help with any luggage if needed.

We hope to see you again soon.

With best wishes

Adrian
