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.

We stayed here because of the high ratings on internet, but unfortunately we were a bit disappointed to say the least . We have stayed at quite few motor lodges in New Zealand , but this was not worth the high rating . The rooms are basic , nothing special and a bit dated . According to their ad ,... More

What a fabulous place! Very close to town, restaurants and the Saturday market. Lovely tidy and spacious room with all the little extra's you don't normally get these days. Very friendly proprietors who were most helpful and one of the best places I have stayed in for a very long time.

If you want a good size room with easy access to everywhere this is the motel to use. The unit I had was like a luxury flat with seating area, kitchen, large bathroom and separate bedroom. The area is quiet with good parking. Not much else to say, they don't come better than this one. Careful thought has gone into... More

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.
