“Lovely Motel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

This is the second time we have stayed at this Motel. Picked it the first time as from the outside it looked new and modern. Was not disapointed. We had a one bedroom which was lovely with everything one needs. Just a 5 min walk to town. Owners very nice and so were the stand in Managers that were looking after the Motel. Would recommend and I will stay again.

We stayed two nights here last week. From the moment we checked in , great service all the way until checked out. .

The Excecutive Suite is huge, tasteful decor and furnishings with lovely out door courtyard and lovely big bathroom( didin't even get to try the spa bath, it looked great though ).
The kitchen is very well appointed, even with latest one drawer dishwasher, execellent..
Big thirsty towels and bath robe.


Full marks to the hosts, John and to all your staff . We think you and Cedar Grove Motor Lodge are the are THE BEST

We stayed in a executive studio which was fantastic, very spacious, huge bathroom with great spa and kitchen facilities. Big bed but a bit hard for my liking. The overall accommodation was great and very clean.

I've been staying here since the motel opened. Its clean and tidy with everything you could possibly need - all appliances are a good brand and everything is modern. Lovely decor 5 minute walk to town. Units to suit everybody - I usually stay with work but have taken my Mum up and stayed in the lovely 2 bedroom unit.

I travel the South Island regularly and this is my favourite motel partly due to the details above but mostly because John and Jill are friendly, caring hosts. Its like a home away from home with little touches like closing the windows and putting on heating in the afternoon. You won't be disappointed !

We were in Nelson for an Antiques and Collectibles fair and stayed 3 nights at Cedar Grove. Our room was spacious and very well appointed. The photos of rooms are accurate and not taken from creative angles!

Our kitchen had a microwave, dishwasher, two ring stove top and plenty of cutlery, glasses and plates. The tea and coffee supplies were generous and were topped up each day. The bathroom was huge and nicely decorated. Plenty of nice thick towels and a towelling robe were provided. The room itself was also of a very good size, with a door out to a very nice private garden area. The bed was comfortable and the bed linen was of a good quality.

We found the Host to be very welcoming and he very kindly drew directions on a map for the venue for our antique show and also mentioned the Saturday market held in central Nelson. Location-wise Cedar Grove is excellent. It is a couple of minutes’ walk to shops, supermarket and an excellent coffee shop. Unfortunately I arrived a bit late to the market (it closes at 1pm) but was totally impressed with the delicious food and interesting wares for sale. Next time we are in Nelson, not only would I get to the market earlier, I would definitely stay at Cedar Grove again.

Friendly motelier, allowing us to check in early. Very nice modern suite, super comfortable bed, just couldn't fault the stay in this place
