We had an upstairs suite which was great. Plenty of room and the bed was firmish/supportive but comfortable. Only minutes from the centre of town by foot. Road noise was acceptable even though our room faced the road.

I was greatly impressed by lots of features at this place. The room had excellent layout, was spacious with good seating and there were plenty of working surfaces. The bathroom was very good with a fabulous shower over a spa bath, and also a heated wall mirror. All the usual extras were supplied, and more. These were of good quality... More

Had a suite as a special treat and it was superb. Very friendly welcome and the rooms were really impeccably presented. So close to town, we walked to the Saturday morning market which is excellent. Highly recommended.

Well appointed apartments with separate bedrooms if required. Very clean and well appointed. On the main street so a handy walk to town. Supermarket just 5 minutes away. Friendly helpful staff. Very quiet.

Centrally located on Nelson's main street, the motel is handy to everything but with that comes the traffic noise, even at night. It is also right next door to another large motel which doubles the ambient noise. We also had the misfortune to be next to a noisy group who were still playing loud music, and talking loudly and drunkenly... More

In making a loop of the South Island, we decided on a one night stopover in Nelson. The Cedar Grove Motor Lodge is nothing special, but very clean, quiet, comfortable, and conveniently located near shops and restaurants. We had a pleasant afternoon wandering the streets of Nelson.
