A weekend of relaxation was what we needed and staying at Cedarwood Lakeside resort filled the bill perfectly. An added bonus was the luxurious private spa pool, which we thoroughly enjoyed each evening. Facilities were clean, and the friendly service we received was prompt, and helpful. We'd highly recommend this accommodation - which although is 8 kms from the city, meant peace and quiet and provided the perfect setting in which to unwind. Being located right on the lake shore was lovely, but sadly we couldn't see and appreciate the lake from our room. Children were well catered for and the reasonable curfew hours for the pools was a thoughtful idea for residents who need to sleep. We wouldn't have stayed here if we had to pay full tariff, so having a Grabone deal definitely made it an extremely good value-for-money experience. Thanks Fiona and Nick. We'll pass the word around...

Room Tip: The units adjacent to the lake would be the perfect choice. Being in the unit next to the spa room was also a good situation. Choosing a unit closer to the playground and outdoor pool would be wise if you have children with you.

We wished that we could stay longer! We will be recommending your place to anyone and everyone who tells us that they are visiting Rotorua. Situated in such a beautiful setting... you could'nt beat sitting in the spa pool and looking out over the lake. The units were very clean = so important. And the peace and quite was very much appreciated after a long drive. Thank you. We will be back.

What a fabulous spot right beside the lake. Our 2-bedroom unit was very comfortable, spacious, clean and so quiet. Enjoyed walking along the lakefront one morning and sitting on the deck in the sunshine reading. Excellent amenities such as the swimming pool and spa, plus swings and trampolines for the kids, all situated in the large grassy area in the centre of the complex. Loved being surrounded by trees. Handy to the local shops and take-aways, and so close to Rotorua for the main shopping, cafes and restaurants, and the lakefront. Would definitely stay here again.

Hi LG11_12, Thank you so much for your comments on your recent stay at Cedarwood Lakeside Holiday Resort! We certainly enjoy the quiet surrounds of the property and being on the lake edge is an added bonus. The property is certainly ideal for couples or families wanting to get away from the busy town centre. We look forward to welcoming you back again the near future. Regards Fiona & Nick.

Great accommodation!! Excellent Hospitality, highly recommended!!
Would want to come back again whenever we can..
Great views from the lake side if you get a room next to the lake..
McDonalds 24 hrs is just a minute a drive, which is quite handy!!
All in all a great place to spend your weekend away
Thank you Nick & Fiona!!

Room Tip: Close the windows & doors after dark to avoid Trout flies attracted by the lights!!!

This is a charming spot on the shore of Lake Rotorua at Holdens Bay which is no more than 10 minute's drive from the centre of the city along the Tauranga/Wkakatane road. Nick and Fiona have refreshed the units over recent years. They are well equipped and tastefully decorated and you can park right outside your unit. The grounds are beautifully maintained. My wife and I have stayed here 4 times now and Nick and Fiona have got it just right. On top of that they are excellent and helpful hosts - they even managed to solve my iPad problem!
