We stayed for 2 nights with our tour group Grand Pacific Tours in May of this year and we had a very pleasant comfortable stay. Our room was very modern, spotlessly clean a large bed, all the amenities we needed for a great stay. We had a fantastic Scottish evening with bagpipes, great food and a special Haggis ceremony at the hotel which was just amazing.
All staff we encounter were professional, friendly and catered to our needs with a smile we really enjoyed our time at the Scenic Hotel Southern Cross and the lovely city of Dunedin.

I joined a group tour to visit New Zealand in mid-May and t stayed in this Hotel when we arrived Dunedin. The facilities inside room was more than adequate. However, the size of benchtop inside bathroom was abnornally small which made it difficult to accommodate all the stuff for use inside bathroom. The breakfast was of very good quality although the coffee got room for improvement.

Room tip: Higher level suites.

While on a trip round the South Island, we were booked into this hotel . Advantages - very close to centre of town, Octagon etc.; huge bedrooms and king beds in a twin room; amazing architecture on old part of building including the Casino; a great Buffet Dinner night, and an amazing selection for breakfast daily [ including a big cauldron of porridge as a nod to the Scots Ancestry!]

I stayed here on my tour of South Island. This is a nice hotel. In the centre of the city. Very good dinner. Good breakfast. large room. No air conditioning. Large number of electrical sockets available in room. Wi-fi so-so but workstations available and used.

On a coach trip of the South Island and whilst this hotel (casino based) lacked the views, it was way above basic. Very comfortable rooms and excellent comfortable and cosy bedding. Nice bathrooms and no outside noise could be heard. Had all amenities and very nice staff. Food in the dining room was also very good.
It was the second Scenic hotel we had stayed at and I am thinking the excellent quality and service might continue throughout the chain. Just a thought.

Room tip: We were on the second floor (from memory) and no problems at all. No complaints here.
