Have stayed occasionally for many years and always been a good standard of accommodation. Friendly owner and well equipped rooms Would have marked it a 5 but this last visit the cleaners let them down and there was some hairs ( the short curly ones) on the wall of the shower

I stayed at Cedar Grove Lodge a few years ago and had great service, so when I needed to stay in Nelson for business recently I thought I would re-book there again. Well this time the service was so laid back it was practically horizontal! I had several incidents that made me decide to A) place a review and B)... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Clean very well appointed rooms. Service from reception very friendly and efficient. Couldn't fault this good old fashioned South Island hospitality. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Up until March this year all our previous stays at Cedar Grove Motel were when John and Jill owned them. What a contrasting difference we experienced, we couldn’t get over how the Motel had gone back and in such a short time. The décor was tatty and getting dated. For the 7 nights we stayed the only room service was... More

Do not stay in this motel if you are a single woman on your own. The man on reception the night I booked in had roving hands. I should have reported him to the police, but I was travelling on business and moving on the next day (thankfully). Lovely motel with really impressive rooms on such a beautiful place, but... More

Fawlty Towers is going strong in Nelson. Over the past 10 years we have regularly used this motel under the management of whom, we assume, must have been its previous owners. In any event, we did not recognise the person who checked us in. The motel has always been of a good standard, clean and good quality. The people we... More

Chosen from its exterior appearance and we were given a large one bedroom unit with excellent fscilities. Its location enabled us to easily walk around town. Reception was friendly and helpful. Abolutely no outside noise. Exterior patio was a bonus in the sunshine.
