    Short stay”

    We had a one night stay at the hotel and found it very good. The staff were very good and the check in was quick and easy. The room was comfortable and clean. We found the location excellent as it's very close to the centre of Dunedin. All in all a good stay. Only down side was paying for parking but not a major issue

    Nice smelling shampoo, lotion

    we loved the shampoo and lotion which was for sale. Hotel near Cadbury Chocolate factory. Basin was choked. Friendly and helpful porter as well as counter staff who helped us with the luggages which we put for a few hours when we visited the chocolate factory.

    Location to town and businesses in town centre was excellent. From check in to check out the staff were helpful and professional. The rooms were comfortable and well presented. Felt like a home away from home. When I would come back to Dunedin I would definitely stay at Scenic Southern Cross again.

    One of the best stay I had in South NZ”

    Room is extremely nice, modernly designed, chic, clean, and comfortable. Love the toiletries provided. Only complaint is the room is too dimly lit but it also puts you in a snug and cosy mood for a good night rest. It's centrally located, and within walking distance to a lot of food places. Wifi connection was good. Parking is chargeable though at $13 a night.

    Basin was choked.”

    Air conditioner/heater was not working so well.

    It was an average stay for us as the air conditioner/heater was not working initially. Washroom basin was a little choked. However, we loved the Earth Botanics body lotion, shampoo and conditioner as they smelt so good. Wifi was slow and the only good thing about its hotel location was within walking distance to the Cadbury chocolate factory.

    Scenic Hotel Southern Cross”

    The room with kitchenette had everything we needed

    The room with kitchenette had everything we needed, and many attractions were within walking distance. The airport bus (Airbus Express) stops outside the entrance, a big bonus. The staff were friendly and attentive, and our room was always promptly service. Lots of restaurants to suit all budgets close by, as are supermarkets, should one wish to eat in the room. The number of TV channels was not extensive and the hotel provides only limited free internet, beyond which there's a charge. Overall, a very good place to stay.

    Good. We staying in Dunedin to watch kids sports. Accommodation good and price reasonable. Location good as handy to octagon and night life. Staff very helpful. Facilities good. however and know this out of hotel's control outlook from windows not that flash. There are some surrounding buildings that need demolished, upgraded. That would be the only negative

    Close to the centre of town and amenities

    this was a last minute booking but the receptionist was very efficient and there were no problems with checking in, however once we got to our room we found we were right next to a very noisy air conditioning unit. my husband returned to reception and asked if we could change the room and we were moved at once. the rooms were well furnished and a reasonable size. it is a 5 minute walk into the town for shops museums and restaurants .

    Location

    the hotel is situated conveniently with only a short walk to the octagon. travelled with a 14 month old and the first room given to us didn't really have much space once a cot was put in. the front desk were very helpful in showing us two other rooms that they thought might be more appropriate on space and we ended up in a twin bed corner room with plenty of space to include a baby cot. the bathrooms are a little small with small sink basins but clean and modern. overall we had a good stay and is good value for money and we would stay there again.

    such comfortable bed and pillows - lovely sleep

    This was a great hotel with good service and comfortable beds that you just sink into. The only problem was trying to fill up the kettle from the bathroom sink - only just fits under the tap. The location is quiet but near enough to the high st, railway station and the Cadbury factory to walk. Would definitely book this hotel again.
