Housed in a landmark building dating back to 1883, the Scenic Hotel Southern Cross combines traditional Dunedin heritage with modern day style and comfort. The hotel is located at the heart of Dunedin’s shopping, restaurant and entertainment district, and it’s just a short walk to the Octagon and to New Zealand’s most photographed building, Dunedin Railway Station.

Your Stay
Bedrooms are comfortable and well-equipped, and the hotel’s facilities include free WiFi, a fitness centre and two guest laundries – really useful during a touring holiday! For guests looking for something a little different to do in the evening, Dunedin Casino is located within the Scenic Hotel Southern Cross.

Dining Options
A buffet breakfast is served in The Carlton restaurant, while Boldini Café is the go-to choice for a mid-morning coffee or a spot of lunch. By night, Ports O’Call Bar & Grill is a cosy and welcoming spot for dinner or a drink, with local and international dishes on offer along with a selection of delicious, local Central Otago wines.
