I stayed at the Scenic Hotel in Dunedin for two nights while at a conference. The welcome we received from the front desk staff was possibly the friendliest I've experienced. Very helpful, consistently.
Our room was fine. We were pretty much just sleeping in it. There is no air conditioning. A control panel on the wall seemed to be ineffective. Other than that, the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The toiletries in the bathroom were plentiful and the tea/coffee selection was above what I'd have expected for a room of this type. Even a little plunger for a coffee bag. On a main road there is a bit of noise at night. I'd recommend keeping the window closed or using ear plugs if you are a light sleeper.
Location is very convenient and if you're a NZ Les Mills member the Dunedin gym is within 50 metres of the hotel. There is a fitness room in the hotel, but it isn't very well equipped. Parking isn't free and is valet only. I didn't have breakfast as there is a little fridge in the room and a convenience store across the road, I got cereal and snacks and the hotel staff gladly provided me a bowl and spoon for a self-catered breakfast.
One thing to note is that the Scenic Hotel Southern Cross is very close by so don't get confused, especially when coming in late at night.
