Ok stay. Definitely not a 4 star service as claimed. Dated and even worn out rooms. $10 fan in the room as a substitute for Airconditioning 😊. Bathrooms very tiny, you have to manoeuvre in a certain way to be able to use it. Shower doesn’t really work. Some of the staff members were amazing but some were really not interested. The breakfast was ordinary at best. Great location though but can’t say the same about the property or experience though. Not recommended.
Room was super hot, even with fan on and window open, and it wasn't exactly hot outside. Room was smaller than expected, bathroom was tiny- almost had to sit sideways on the toilet 😐. Didn't enjoy not having a wee kitchen sink to fill cups/jugs so avoided making coffee etc. Have paid a lot less to stay in nicer places. Service from staff was fantastic, room was clean and location was ideal- being right in town and off the casino was really what saved this from being a lower review. Personally I wouldn't stay there again unless it was quick overnight trip that involved going to the casino.
Comfortable and clean
Stayed here for the first time, to be honest I didn’t have great expectations and. Wing attached to the casino I was expecting some noise, so I paid more to be in a tower room up high-ish. Turns out I was wrong, these are quiet, clean and surprisingly well appointed. I think good value for money all round. There are two restaurants, good old fashioned meals, and well apportioned. I’ll be back - just wish they could do something with the water pressure.....
A very well located hotel from which to explore Dunedin
Overall good. There were some tired public areas, eg, the carpet in the corridor on level 3 was quite worn. The room was very hot with no thermostat. The TV remote didn't work, but we weren't to bothered about that otherwise we would have reported it to reception. The bar area was well stocked and the staff were friendly, professional and helpful. We would stay there again if we could get a similar deal. Published prices seemed a bit high.
Convenient and comfy
The Scenic Hotel Southern Cross is conveniently situated close enough to walk to the Octagon, where there are many restaurants and pubs, as well as historic buildings and sights. It is abuzz during summer. It is also on the bus route, so getting around without a car is a breeze. The luxury hotel is modern, has been refurbished, although the building dates back to 1883. It includes a casino and a number of restaurants and pubs. We had breakfast included in our package and this was a basic buffet style meal. One could also order coffees to go. We had a seafood meal in the Carlton Hotel which was superb.
