Fabulous 8.6 From 155 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Scenic was a decent hotel
Scenic was in a good location. The room was clean (and well turned over). We were disappointed that we couldn't get a later check out (10AM checkout is awfully early but they claimed they were booked). We also would have liked to have had access to a hot tub/spa or at the very least a heated pool (pool was clean but super cold)

Scenic Hotel
Amazing two day stay in the gorgeous Bay of Islands area. Clean, comfortable hotel room. Hotel was within walking distance to restaurant/shop/ferry area. Would definitely stay here again!
Janet, usOther trip
Very Good 8.0
Although the hotel itself was fine, when we checked out we found we had been charged for an upgraded room, even though we had not asked for one. The clerk said it was their standard price, however my sister who booked and the same time and for the same type of room paid a lower price. They refused to make any adjustments. I would not recommend them for this reason.
