Brilliant hosts, beautiful motel superbly presented, couldn't have asked for more at an excellent rate! Location was really handy to town and the hosts were most helpful, great way to celebrate our wedding.

We stayed at Cedar Grove while on a weekend trip to Nelson. We hadn't booked and drove past and decided to go in, we were so glad that we did! The hosts were great and very friendly. The rooms were fantastic! Well appointed, quality fittings and furnishings throughout, comfy beds, large spa bath and very clean. Great value too! We have spent a lot more money and got a lot less value. We enjoyed it so much we came back the next night (after looking for other accommodation up near kaiteri and not finding anything as nice).
The lovely hosts welcomed us back and even gave us an upgrade.
We would happily recommend to other travelers! By far the best motel we have stayed in! Thanks again, I'm sure we will be back :-)

Friendly hosts, very helpful. I had a unit that was on the side of the hotel so got quiet a bit of street noise as hotel is on a corner.50 mb for free data is rather lean these days, room was clean and tidy and shower had good water pressure,

We really enjoyed our stay at the cedar grove lodge. The rooms were modern and clean. The location is great and the owners were very friendly and very helpful. We were recommended to a local restaurant called Fords for dinner which turned out to be the best meal of our holiday. We would highly recommend staying here if your visiting Nelson.

We had a great stay. We arrived a day earlier than expected so the room we booked was in use so we were immediately upgraded to a suite for our entire stay! the room was superb. Very clean, all the lovely extras and a great spa bath. The owners were lovely and were a font of knowledge when it came to knowing about Nelson and all it's attractions. Thanks a lot.

I was in Nelson for work and was booked in here and really enjoyed it. Quiet, clean with really comfy bed. Close enough to town to walk but not so close that you could hear any noise from restos/pubs.
