The Scenic Hotel in Dunedin City is very modern and everybody is absolutely lovely there. Everything was sorted out fast and easily and even have a safe spot for your car if needed. Would definitely recommend and would stay again. It was really close to town so you can walk there if pleased and everything was in one spot so that was really handy. Food is awesome and rooms are neat and tidy :)

Disappointed

Very disappointed on arrival. Arrived at 18:10 and the room was not ready. Was told it would take approx 30 minutes to finish clean. Was given 2 x drink vouchers to use at the hotel bar and that we would be called when the room was ready. Waited 35 minutes and went back to reception which was unattended. I rang the bell and the receptionist came out and gave me the key and said oh yes your room is ready. Not doing what you say you will is very poor customer service

Weekend Away

We are repeat Stayers at Scenic Hotel Dunedin (Princes Street). Our Hotel experience was lovely, from the time of arrival (earlier than 2pm) Room was available Thank You.Till our departure. Staff were friendly & courteous. Unfortunately I wasn't well, spending all my time in bed, but oh the luxury and comfort was wonderful especially when one isn't well. Location was perfect as so handy to shopping Restaurants etc. Everything is within walking distance. Having the car valeted was great no worries. Thank You again Scenic Hotel for making our stay with you a very pleasant & enjoyable experience.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Breakfast Dining in the Hotel is a wonderful experience, variety and ease of use is great. Dining & Entertainment are a 'stone's distance away with so much choice, and variety for all ages & types. Dunedin's famous & picturesque Octagon is a block away, very easy walking distance to everything.

An excellent stay

I often stay here when in Dunedin and it is reliable and consistently good. Staff are friendly and the hotel is well kept. Only (minor) negative was the breakfast. Was 15 minutes late, had no butter, no option for "normal coffee" on the card (just decaf and a heap of teas) and was expensive at $24 for literally cornflakes and toast. But other than that, this is a great central place to stay in Dunedin.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

This hotel is basically halfway between the Casino and Dunedin's octagon - heaps of entertainment options within a 3-4 minute walk.
