Very nice hotel in great location !!!”
we are stayed in superior room.the room is very big enough for my family with 2 of double beds. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we had a good breakfast next morning. The hotel is very conveniently located near to the town centre (Octagon). Highly recommended 😀😀😀
Dear Charnchai, thank you kindly for your review, we were pleased to hear how much you enjoyed your room and breakfast and were happy to know that you would recommend us to others. Kind regards, Kate
Best hotel we stayed in during our trip in NZ”
This waw the best hotel we stayd in during our whole trip in NZ. The room was very large and clean. The price was the cheap by comparison with the other hotels we stayed in. Hotel staff was also very friendly. They helped us book shuttle bus to the airport as well as tour to various places in the city. Overall very good experience!
Hotel with great location & spacious room”
We stayed in a room for 3 person n the room was very spacious n clean . We arrived late n not yet have dinner, after we checked in we just walk out from hotel n we can easily find restaurant n pubs thst open late til midnight. Is very near to otagon square and u can easily access to nearby attraction like church, cadburry factory etc by walking. I definitely will stay in this hotel again if i will ho back to Dunedin
Lovely hotel and value for money”
This lovely new hotel is located right in the city, with just 2-3 minutes walk to Octagon. Lots of nice restaurants just within steps. Clean and big room. Helpful and friendly hotel staff. The i-Site is just located 2 minutes walk across the road. I will return to this hotel for sure my next trip to Dunedin.
Spacious hotel in the heart of Dunedin”
the staff was great. it was public holiday and many restaurants charged additional. we were informed that the hotel restaurant does not charge additional. the hotel charge parking fees but the staff did inform us of an alternative to parking in the hotel. we stayed only 1 night but totally enjoyed it, room, services, shower and all. great one!
Lovely hotel and convenient”
the room was big with 2 big beds! i like the convenience location of this hotel, with so many restaurants within just few minutes walk. less than 3 minutes walk from octagon. friendly and helpful hotel staff. clean and definitely good value for money. highly recommended for business travelers!
The Scenic Hotel is right at the city centre. You can reach Octagon, Dunedin Railway Station, First Church, etc. by walk. There are pay parking space outside hotel and also very competitive valet parking. The only issue is the shower facility. The door is really too big that almost trapped me inside.
Great place and great staff”
Loved this place, and the rooms are clean and nice.
Thanks so much Hean we appreciate your feedback. Best regards, Kate
Our stay at the hotel was splendid. The hotel is situated right in the centre of town. ”
Eateries are nearby. The Octagen is just one street away. The staff are very curteous and helpful. Check in, check out was easy and fast.

The staff is very friendly.Hotel facilities are a little old
Dear Xingyu, thank you for your feedback we hope you enjoyed your trip and we wish you a safe journey home. Kind regards, Kate
The trainee on duty when we booked in was impressive and set a positive tone for the company. Don't remember his name but it was on the 15/7/18. We stayed in seven hotels in nine days and he was memorable for being informative, professional, helpful and completely free of arrogance.
Dear Anna, thank you so much for letting us know that, we're so pleased to receive those comments and he will be delighted to read that too. Thanks again and we hope to have the opportunity to host you again. Kind regards, Kate
We always stay in the Hotel when we are in Dunedin, however the airconditioning was not working in any of our rooms (we had 3) and although it is wonderful in winter, it was very stifling and we found it unbearably hot. Trying to sleep was a nightmare. Please look into accommodating for the hot summer months.
The hotel was great value for money in a fantastic location just a short walk to the Octagon. We had a nice big, clean room with comfortable beds. The bathroom was nice and modern too. All staff were friendly and helpful at all times.
Good staff service”
A lady who named Rowena if i'm not wrong was so helpful during my stay. She knew i had 3 pax and so she offered to a bigger room for more comfort, and she guided where are the famous places to be visited. Loving their bathroom amenities.
Not the best place during weekend”
The room was average level and unfortunately on the side of Princess Street which was extremely noisy in Saturday night. Even the double windows could not stop the noise. Got excellent service for parking the car and happy to pay for that.
Value hotel in good location”
All round this was an easy and pleasant hotel to stay at. The cleanliness of the room and facilities was excellent - best I've experienced compared to many hotels I visit. The only fault I'd say is the reception staff were a little underwhelming and even misinformed me when I was told microwaves were available - not overly negative but I'd expect hotel reception staff to be more attentive to a guest's needs. I'd recommend the hotel and would definitely book there again.
Best replacement choice from Agoda”
I had originally booked to stay at another hotel, but they backed out at the last minute and Agoda found me this one. Frankly, I think they did me a huge favour, as the Scenic was a much better hotel in a superb, convenient location in the middle of Dunedin. Large numbers of tour groups use this hotel but they seem geared up for it and the individual traveller is well looked after as well.
Great location and value for money”
In the center of Dunedin, close to the famous railway station as well as restaurants, shops. Superior twin QQ room is very spacious with two double beds, well sleeps 2adults+2 children. Great value for money!
Huge Room , Cosy bed ”
In the heart of the city , close to Octogon, Restaurants and walking distance to many attractions. Hotel could do with some sprucing up in the public areas , lifts and hallways but room was excellent & extra large . It was warm and comfy with huge TV . All amenities were clean and staff friendly and helpful. Highly recommend this hotel and would stay again.
Central location and quiet”
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was so central to the city we walked everywhere but also opted for the valet option which the gentleman was really nice. Upon check in the reception lady wasn't very nice which wasn't an ideal initial thought about staying there. Our room wasn't cleaned until late in the day which made us try to do things outside the hotel from 10am to as late a possible which got a bit hard when we were exhausted. These were the only two things to fault so everything else was great and highly recommended.
