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

Second time we have stayed here, although the new owners are still learning the ropes Cedar Grove is still the best place to stay in Nelson. Great location close to shops & restaurants but quiet, clean, comfortable and friendly we will definatley be staying here again.

We only stayed here one night. This motel was pleasant enough, a good sized room, comfortable bed. A good location - a block from the i-site and a few blocks from where all the restaurants are. They claim to have free wifi but really it is only free for one hour, which quickly ran out as we were trying to... More

The motel is very well situated on the main street of this pleasant town, just outside the central business area, within easy walking distance of shops and restaurants over the river and the lovely cathedral at the other end of town. We arrived just as the previous owner John and his wife were in the process of handing over to... More

A conveniently located motel in central Nelson. Clean & well appointed room eventhough our bathroom layout was interesting ie toilet by the door 😉 Very friendly and helpful people but need to widen the credit card range and include free unlimited wifi.
