We stayed at the height of the season and enjoyed the comforts of one of their suites. It is ideally suited on the very edge of the cbd and right next to the iSight. There is an on-site laundry and parking, with complimentary wifi. The only down side is that the cleaning staff are a little forgetful and despite staying...

We highly recommend a stay at Cedar Grove. The staff are accomodating, professional and friendly. The rooms are lovely, modern and very clean with sky in both rooms. It's in a great central location for exploring the city sites.

stayed here with a colleague for a couple of days while working in Nelson. We were never going to get there before 9PM which is typically when all motel offices in NZ close. I phoned ahead, and even though the rooms were not pre - paid they left keys under the mats for us. Rooms were very large, everything you...

We stayed at Cedar Grove for four nights. We stayed in a one bedroom unit that was spotlessly clean and very well appointed, (as good as any we have stayed in anywhere). Although it was the closest to the road it was quiet and warm due to the double glazing of all windows. The owners Lindsay and Tracy, who I...

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.

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...
