We drove in off the street and were lucky enough to get the last apartment available. In 45 years of staying in Hotels, Motels etc. worldwide, we have never experienced an establishment as spotlessly clean as this. It was amazing! They thought of everything in the spacious and extremely well appointed apartment and added super extra touches not experienced elsewhere.... More

Only stayed here one night thank goodness, guy in reception was useless in checking in and out, didn't seem to know what he was doing. When we finally checked in and went to the room, we open the door and the smell of cigarette smoke was shocking. We went back to ask if he had an air freshener and he... More

We arrived late in the night, Wendy had no problem assisting us with a room. Very clean and tidy, staff were fantastic, washing facilities great. Not very expensive at all. Will definitely come back and stay, no questions asked. To Wendy and the team, a big thank you. Charbel and Mary

Booked for two nights and stayed for three. Great central location and clean well-equipped rooms. The manager was friendly, helpful and very accommodating, even letting us store our bikes in his garage. Hotels.com described free internet, but this turned out to be limited to three hours per day. No big deal in the long run.

We stayed at Cedar Grove for 2 nights at the end of a week long holiday in the Nelson region. We also stayed a night across the road at Trailways for a night at the beginning of our holiday. Although both are very good, the apartments at Cedar Grove are far bigger and nicer than those at Trailways. It is... More

The room had everything I needed. All the amenities were great. Arrived and felt very comfortable. Loved the location as everything was a short distance walk or drive. Definitely will stay again when in Nelson next.

The Motel is in a good location, around 5-minutes walk to the downtown. The room is quite big, one kitchen, together with living room and one bedroom. The room is clean. And the most important thing is the owner and his wife are very friendly, which made us feel like at home during our stay (from December 31 to January... More

We were lucky to find this place (due to a last minute cancellation) on New Year's Day when everywhere else was full. It was really lovely, everything was provided even enough milk for a couple of coffees! Des (I think that was his name!) behind the desk was great, nothing was too much trouble, he always had a smile and... More

Very average accommodation and felt it was overpriced compared to others in Nelson. Would stay elsewhere in future. When the curtains were opened, people on the other side of the courtyard could see direct into the room.

This is a great motel to have as a base for exploring Nelson. The location puts it a block or so away from the main shopping/eating area and 5 minutes to the excellent cinema or the River Cafe for breakfast. It's also close to the main freeway to get out and about on. The rooms are spacious, showers great, and... More
