Even though it was a year ago i stayed in this hotel i feel compelled to write a review after reading what the reviewer who stayed in the Scenic Circle hotel said. As a single traveller i was quoted 89 british pounds for a room at the Scenic Circle, as opposed to only 20 bp (60 nz dollars) at the law courts hotel so i've no idea why the other reviewer got a room so cheap there. As a single traveller on a budget, i can tell you the Law Courts room, with its ensuite bathroom, was a welcome break from youth hostel culture. Sure, it's not a boutique hotel but IT IS CHEAP! My room was clean, the staff were sweet, in an old-fashioned-friendly way, and as a woman on her own i felt quite safe and happy to be here. Having said that, I would recommend getting out of Dunedin and heading for the Otago peninsula. Otago was probably my most favourite part of this area with its albatross, sea lions and penguins, Seeing all of this was a joyful experience. I would recommend staying in Portabello if you don't have a car because there is a shop there, a cafe and being central, it is quite easy to get around from here (there is a great walk to lovely Larnach Castle to where you can have a nice lunch).
