We picked a suite up for the weekend and it was great. Two large rooms, comfortable bed, big kitchen/sitting room and a nice balcony with morning sun. Easy walk to the markets and shops, and the owners were very helpful in recommending places to eat. Great value.

I was very happy to have chosen this as my accommodation during my 3 days in Nelson. Location was perfect, the owners John and Gill are so obliging and helpful. The room, which is just like an apartment, feels so much like home for me. Very very clean, excellent kitchen, lovely comfortable bed (with electric blanket) and fantastic bathroom. I... More

The Cedar Grove has become my go to motel in Nelson. The rooms are spacious, and the cleanliness to the highest standard. Little touches in the room add to the atmosphere make it a great place to stay and work. It is very comfortable. I always get a warm welcome, and enjoyed my latest stay there. The location is great,... More

Our first couple of days on the South Island after coming across the Interislander Ferry from Wellington and an easy and enjoyable drive from Picton were spent at this motel which is easy to find on the approach into the main town centre. The Cedar Grove Motor Lodge was harder for me to review than others because it is hard... More

Although we hadn't stayed here in several years the owner greeted us by name, remembered our previous car and welcomed us back before we even had a chance to say who we were- a great way to feel truly welcomed on a wet Friday evening. This is a great example of a very nicely appointed motel with lots of little... More

We arrived rather late from the North Island, but were welcomed instantly with no hassles. The rooms were very clean, comfortable and cosy. At check in we were provided with lots of information on local restaurants, the markets and directions for going on our journey afterwards. Easy walk into the town centre. Recommend Cedar Grove.
