We stayed overnight in this clean, modern hotel in great central location. Staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms clean, well appointed with lovely bathroom toiletries. Rooms were spacious and warm! Incredibly comfortable beds! Would have been happy to stay longer.

Room Tip: We had an interconnecting room for a family of 6, worked well with 2x queens and a king.

We stayed one night and had a room for 2 adults and 2 children, queen and 2 singles. It was great value for a hotel and a good size if a bit basic but for the price it was fine. Lovely service, good location. Would stay again next time we visit Dunedin.

Spent one night in Dunedin during a trip around the South Island and we couldn't have been happier with our choice of hotel.

Overall a super place to stay and I would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Executive rooms are worth that bit extra, particularly the harbour view ones, as they are nice and q...

We stayed 1 night at the Scenic Hotel, Dunedin, following the great experience we had at the Scenic Hotel, Blenheim. However, we were underwhelmed with the standard of service from Management & Reception staff. One redeeming feature was that we did have a very nice dinner in the hotel dining room.
