I was at the Cedarwood Lakeside Motel for two weeks, and found it to have everything that was needed in an extended stay. The two bedroom apartment worked well for sharing with another person. The rooms were quiet, with a good heating system for cold nights, the kitchen was well supplied with cooking equipment, plates, glasses, etc. Wifi worked well,... More

Although out of town this location is an easy drive in to Rotorua and handy for getting to Hell's Gate Thermal Park. It also has the merit of being quiet at night despite not being far from the airport. Comfortable accommodation if a little cramped but we did have the smallest size cabin. Excellent value for money and with its... More

I stayed 3 nights in this paradise. Not only this place is exactly as it appears, peaceful and quiet, beautiful and in a very convenient place with buses around if you need to get down town in 15mns, for NZ $2,50. But also, let me tell you how the owners of this amazing place helped me with difficulties. While booking... More

We stayed in a studio room. The place was very clean and comfortable. We rented a free movie for the night from the reception and stayed warm in our room. It was extremely cold and windy outside! Friendly receptionist, gave us good advice where to go to the thermal baths. Not many places around for dinner. We found a Chinese... More

What a wonderful holiday location! Lakes edge with stunning views. Hosts Nick and Fiona are super friendly and take such pride in their surrounds. The heated pool and spa a treat in early spring and the kids were well entertained with trampoline, swings and wifi! We will definitely be back! Thank you!

We stayed 2 nights at Cedarwood in a studio room for two. The room was very clean and with complete facilities. The location was ideal for people wanting a peaceful break from the hustle and bustle of city life. The lakeside view was picture perfect, the hosts are very welcoming and good selection of free DVDs. Breakfasts were hearty and... More

Had two nights here recently and found it to be in a beautiful setting. The facilities were of a high standard, rooms in excellent order and very clean. We felt at home in this establishment and the hosts were friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend to other travellers. Peaceful surroundings but close to the action of the city.

My family is thrilled we chose Cedarwood! My husband, adult son, and I booked a two-bedroom lakefront unit. Our views were spectacular, and we enjoyed the air, tranquility, and lake vistas. The kitchen and bedrooms were spotless. The owners were friendly and helpful and answered our questions with honestly and patience. We asked a LOT of questions about the area.... More
