We stayed at the Cedarwood Lakeside for three nights with our three children Our unit was perfect for us. It had plenty of room, and it was lovely and clean with all the things we needed. The kids loved the pool and the playground and we all loved the outdoor spa overlooking the grounds and the lake. It was great having extra towels for swimming and using the spa. Our hosts were more than helpful and booked a few of the tourist attractions for us. It was lovely and quiet, away from the hussle and bussle of town yet not far from any of the activities we wanted to do. Overall great place to stay with a family.

Hi PamTB, Thank you for reviewing us after your recent stay, we are pleased that you all enjoyed the pool and spa! We are lucky to be down a residential street so we do not have any of the road noise that you would typically expect making it a very quiet, tranquil location. Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you all again on your next visit to Rotorua. Kind regards Fiona & Nick.

We booked into a two bedroom unit with friends for three nights. The units are clean and of good size for a motel. This is obviously a good place for families as there were children enjoying the trampoline, pool and Spa and also cycling around the spacious grounds. The main attraction for us was the proximity to the lake and the lakeside walk. One observation is that the units numbered 1 to 7 were mainly in the shade throughout the day whereas 9 upwards had sunshine into the rooms. Units 8 and 9 are obvious first choice being on the lake end of the blocks and having panoramic views of the lake. For two couples they also work out to be good value. We cooked in the unit one night and thought the range of utensils a little limited. Also the couch/bed was a little uncomfortable with three adults sitting on it. Having said all that it is definitely a good place to stay and we would have no hesitation in booking again
We ate one night at the Qwang Chow Buffet house in the shopping centre up the main road, Good value for money and was obviously popular.

Room Tip: units 8 and 9 have best views

Having our wedding at cedarwood was great, all our family came from out of town and we were able to all stay together for the weekend. Nick and Fiona were lovely hosts and were helpful before and during our special day. I would highly recommend Cedarwood, if your looking for a wedding venue that ticks all the box's then take a look. The ground were great for the photo's and having Lake Rotorua as a backdrop was beautiful. The pool was excellent for the kids, the spa was perfect for the pre wedding stress release.The rooms were well appointed and very clean. We will be back on our anniversary.

Hi 331Kevin, Thanks for sharing your feedback and your special day with us at Cedarwood! Our Conference Centre is the perfect little intimate venue for those very special occasions and we were pleased that you chose to celebrate your day here. Glad to hear you took advantage of 'soaking your bones' and enjoying some pre-wedding stress relief in the outdoor spa area! We look forward to seeing you both on your anniversary in 2015! Take care & best wishes for your future together. Fiona & Nick.

The motel is located around ten minutes outside of Rotorua, but is a world away for the busy town centre.
We had an end two bedroom unit with a deck overlooking Lake Rotorua, across grass bank.
It was so peaceful we actually spent a little more time at the motel than normal just enjoying the view.
The unit itself was well equiped, and we would stay here again when visiting the area.

We recently stayed at Cedarwood during a visit from our family. The units had adequate room in the lounge/dining area to accommodate children's activities. There is a solar heated pool and a spa as well as a large trampoline allowing for release of energy after a day spent sightseeing. I was most impressed with the cleanliness of the bathroom in particular. Kitchen area was equipped with microwave and electric frypan as well as a stove. Rotorua city is only five minutes away and there are a good range of takeaway and supermarket outlets in the vicinity. The property borders the lake and is clear of the major highway making for a quiet neighbourhood. The basic allocation of Wifi data was more than I could use in our three days stay. I would certainly stay there again, even if I did not have the children to accommodate and consider.

Room Tip: The lakeside units are great, but are more expensive. Probably not relevant if you are planning to be out sightseeing all day. The area is large with an area of lawn between the rows of units making for more privacy.
