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.

I really enjoyed the modern peaceful & very comfortable facility they have, I've stayed in many motels in the region & this one is excellent value for money. The hosts are really lovely people, the location is central & easy to find. The level of cleanliness is excellent & it is set back from any traffic noise & ensures a... More

This is my second stay in this motel & again it was a very enjoyable experience. The location is perfect, a very short walk to the main shopping area & close to supermarkets. The rooms are of a good size with plenty of comfortable seating in the lounge area. The bedroom is laid out well with plenty of storage space... More

This was one of the best motel experiences in New Zealand. There is a really nice guy running it and he was most helpful. Our unit was ground floor and very spacious with our own private courtyard with table and chairs. The place is spotlessly clean and I recommend it without reservation. It is well located close to the town... More

We had a nice night stop in Nelson. We were close to the town and got good advice from the host. The room was clean and comfortable. Thank you. If I am ever in Nelson again, I would happily stay here.

Our room was very comfortable and clean with free wifi. The Motel reception staff were very friendly and helpful. The Motel itself is close to the town centre and a easy walk to the good variety of restaurants and shops.

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
