We have travelled all around the World and were extremely impressed with Cedar Grove, Nelson. What a fantastic stay, beautiful room that was homely, modern, recently re-furbished and extremely clean. Excellent surroundings and a two minute walk from the town centre. The owners, John & Jill were the nicest motel owners that we have ever encountered. We have travelled to... More

Attention to detail wonderful - even thoughtfully provided with gladwrap in the suite. Very comfortable bed and lounge area. Bathroom was great. Central location but quiet- a couple of minutes walk to main shopping area in Nelson.... More

We stayed in a standard one bedroom unit upstairs with a small balcony. It was truly 5 star accommodation with kitchen with all utensils. There was even some glad wrap provided indicating the thoughtfulness of the hosts. Loungeroom was large enough for us to entertain 2 friends. Bed was very comfortable. Quality bathroom. The unit even came with a fax... More

Very expensive, very uncomfortable and confined - helpful hosts and good location. The executive suite looks fine but the furniture is very uncomfortable and the lounge area very small - I was glad to leave.

The room in this motel was the best room we stayed during our trip to NZ (15 days). It was very clean, had a king size bed which was very comfortable with a kitchenette which was very well equipped, there were even sweets and serviettes. It would be great if you were driving around NZ as you could leave your... More

We found tha the most common type of tourist accommodation in New Zealand is fifteen to twenty room independent motels , usually run by a husband and wife pairing. We stayed in quite a few of these and found them all to be reasonably-priced, though usually the rooms were a little small and not well-appointed. So, we didn't have high... More

Had a fantastic stay here, the room was beautiful with a fabulous spa bath. The owners couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. One of the best places we stayed in New Zealand, would definitely recommend it

We stayed at the Cedar Grove Motor Lodge the night before and the night after our hike in Abel Tasman. The motor lodge is quite new and well-maintained. It also seems to be setup for businesspeople (there was a fax machine in the room). The room we stayed in was an Executive Studio, which was very spacious and well-appointed. The... More

We had only one short night here, but wish we had had more. The hosts were so friendly. The hotel is located near tons of restaurants. We actually walked to the grocery store, grabbed cheese, crackers and snacks and relaxed in our room. Rooms are clean and comfortable.
