We recently stayed at Cedarwood during a visit from our family. The units had adequate room in the lounge/dining area to accommodate children's activities. There is a solar heated pool and a spa as well as a large trampoline allowing for release of energy after a day spent sightseeing. I was most impressed with the cleanliness of the bathroom in...

We stayed here for 4 nights including the weekend when cyclone Lusi blew through the North Island. Our Lakefront two bedroom unit was large, well equiped, clean and had marvellous view across lake Rotorua to Mokoia Island. The resort is located a few kilometres north of Rotorua just of SH30 in a quite road right on the lakeside, a lovely... More

The accommodations, location and amenities are excellent at this motel. The swimming pool and outdoor spa, plus capacious picnic tables and communal BBQ's made al fresco dining and fun easy. The sweet air and lovely sunset views over the lake are delightful. A car is useful for reaching the city centre.

These wooden studios are peacefully located right on Lake Rotorua. Ours was comfortable and had more than adequate facilities with a very comfortable king sized bed. The kitchen and bathroom are a little tired but very clean and well equipped. We made use of the laundry facilities (at a $2 dollar charge) with outdoor drying space, the heated spa pool... More

My wife and I recently spent two nights at this hotel. We liked the fact that this hotel was a short ways out of town (away from the smell and congestion of Rotorua) and right on the lake. Our room was spotless and quiet. Nick and Fiona were terrific hosts; Nick was especially helpful in assisting us w/ some phone/internet... More

My husband and I recently stayed at this motel, and we were very impressed. Our unit was modern and fresh, very clean, and spacious enough that we didn't feel cramped. The people running the motel, Nick and Fiona, were lovely and friendly people who made us feel welcome the moment we stepped in to the office. The place itself was... More

We thought we were out of luck. The tourist booth had a couple of suggestions that didn't pan out; they were actually not very helpful. One of the places with No Vacancy pointed us to Cedarwood, and we loved it! Nick & Fiona were very helpful, knowledgeable hosts, committed to helping us enjoy our vacation. Our two bedroom suite was... More

We loved our stay at the Cedarwood. We were lucky enough to be in one of the lakeside apartments for a few nights and it was just gorgeous - quiet, tastefully decorated, complete with all the modern conveniences. The owners/managers were wonderfully helpful, warm and patient. We left behind a treasured soft toy and they were kind enough to send... More

Stayed three nights at Cedarwood. We had a 2 bedroom unit, very clean and well appointed. We arrived on a lovely summer day, lake views were stunning. Resort doesn't suffer the same sulphur smells often found close to town. Resort caters for couples or families alike. Hosts are lovely and very helpful. Breakfast was delicious. Highly recommend.

This was my second visit to Cedarwood. I stayed in a studio unit 2 years ago, and this time chose a larger (2 bedroom) unit. The quiet location by the lake, well away from traffic noise is a major plus. I didn't even hear a tour group arrive late at night - they were very well behaved! The unit was... More
