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

We found this hotel by chance and what a great find it was! The hosts were so friendly and welcoming and the location was magnificent. Our room was comfy with everything we wanted, and the tv, dvd's (free!), AND sky tv was exactly what we were after at the end of a long and busy holiday. We were tired 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

Arriving at Cedarwood was such a surprise to find it in this beautiful setting right on the lakefront and yet close enough to the city. We stayed 3 nights and the accomodation was extremely comfortable and very clean. Fiona had turned on the heater so it was very warm and welcoming. The spa pool looked very enticing but didn't have... More

This was one of the cleanest motels I have ever stayed at. I am a motel cleaner so i check everything and this was superb. Staff were friendly. We only stayed one night but were very impressed by the cleanliness and the perfect spot right on the lakefront. Superb views.

Stayed for the weekend. The location was great, close enough to the city but far enough away to be peaceful. Beautiful lakeside views. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Staff were fun, friendly and very helpful. Conference venue was more than adequate for the small event we had held there. Outdoor pool looked very inviting and had it been the middle... More

Lake views were spectacular at all times of day. Enjoyed morning and evening walks along the lake. Kids loved the trampolines and hot tub. I appreciated the laundry facilities.

We had our 2 day National Family Support training here in July. The conference facilities were perfect for our group of 20 attendees. The separate room for food & refreshments is a real benefit and can be used as a breakout room as well. Nick & Fiona were great, everything was organized well, facilities and amenities spot on. Everything clean,... More
