Self contained, self catering units, nice place for a weekend away or a longer trip, the views from all the units are good, but obviously they are best from the end units, and the cost is reflected in this. The facilities are good, having a solar heated pool is a nice addition and the spa pools are a very nice...

Sometimes you find a place by accident and wish you could stay longer, but time waits for no one of course! We were in Rotorua for 36 hours which only included one night and we were fortunate that it was at Cedarwood. As mentioned in previous reviews, Rotorua can be a little, ahem, sulphurous! It is all part of the...

For a family of 5 we chose a 2 bedroom lake view apartment. We were stunned with the beauty of the view and loved walking on the shore watching windsurfers on the lake. The apartment was immaculately clean with fresh milk on arrival and a warm welcome. It is out of the centre of town but well worth the drive...

We stayed in no10 which is one room away from the lakeside. The two bed cabin is spacious, well equipped and has a cracking view of the lake from inside and outside.

We had the cabin right at the end facing the lake. We can see the full lake from the windows in the kitchen as well as from the dining room sliding door. The two bedroom unit is spacious and comfortable. But as it is near the lake there is lots of flying insects at night as well as in the...

The location is about a ten minute drive out of town, which is nice if you want to avoid the local fragrance. The place itself is stunning, right on the edge of the lake. The rooms are comfy and very clean. We would definitely visit again and stay a bit longer.

We stayed here for three nights. This motel has excellent location. Only short drive from town centre but is away from hustle and bustle. Situated next to lake Rotorua and has stunning view. Room is very clean and has everything you need. Strong wifi. I really can't think anything I don't like. Definitely recommend to others.
