Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We didn't want to spend our whole holiday budget on classy accommodation so we chose Cedar Court. It is what is and if you are looking for value for money accommodation Cedar Court fits the bill.
Our unit was good and spacious with a good flow of air through the unit.
Management and staff were welcoming and helpful.
Its a bit dated but good value and well located

My husband, I and 2 children really enjoyed our stay at the motel! The hosts were very welcoming, we arrived a bit early in Napier and rang the motel, he said the room is ready for us and we are welcome now, with no extra charge! Then when we are ready to leave, our car didn't start so we asked for help and the hosts helped with no hesitation even when it was before their office hours.

The room was clean and tidy and had the basic things that we needed- fan, microwave, toaster, dishes, etc. The service was awesome too! when we came back, the towels were changed, the dishes were washed, the bed sheets were redone and coffee/chocolate drink were refilled.

We highly recommend this place! Excellent management!!!!!!!!! Great location as well! Quite close to Napier's tourist destinations!

Stayed here one night for work, the motel was Clean & Tidy, the staff member was pleasant enough, the Bed was ok, and everything in the room worked. I my opinion the room was over priced for what it was and the décor was dated, Nothing wrong with the hotel, just for this price you expect a little more . On the plus side you are only a few minutes from the Airport

Our Manager of the Motel was very friendly and helpful and the room was absolutely cleaned to a high standard.
We had come from a filthy dirty Motel in Taupo and this Cedar Court was such a contrast, it was a pleasure to stay in.
Would recommend.

Nice staff. Quick checkin. Free laundry. Nice room with a kitchenette. Large bathroom.
Bed is a little bit to small for us European people. But very reasonable price.
Even with 2 fans we could not get it cool. Along a busy road

On the negative side:
The unit / room had a bad odour and the carpet was stained. The unit appeared unclean and appeared not have the floors and carpets vacuumed.
one of the dessert bowls had a large crack in it.
The ground outside the unit was littered with cigarette butts everywhere.
upon leaving, i looked under our bed to make sure none of our belongings were under it and was shocked to find the following items: a baby bottle. couple of pieces of paper, a cheap phone, one shoe, half a ruler, pen and a dirty pair of knickers. that's so disgusting.If you were staying for more than one night the room was suppose to get a quick service. This was not done and the beverages had not been topped up.

On the positive side:
Because of snow we were stuck in Taupo for two nights and were unable to make two nights at Cedar Court that we had booked. We were not charged for these and we phoned and notified them. Coffee sachets were given when we asked and so was free wifi. The Kitchen appeared clean and so were the oven. microwave, fridge and appliances.

My understanding is that Cedar Court is currently undergoing renovations. It is definitely required and I commend the owners for committing to an upgrade.
I understand that this is a motel and not a hotel, however, that being said there were a few things that were an issue.
Check-in - There was some confusion as to whether we had paid or not which required waiting for a return phone call from a 3rd party. We were allowed access to our room while we waited. A+ for how that was handled.
Wifi - single device use only but the lass at reception was more than happy to give access for each device and did state so on check in. A+ for wifi.
Overall Room - very dated style but unsure if that was being updated still. Kitchen window which looked into the bedroom had no curtain. No privacy. Heater was free standing and despite sounding like it was about to take off any minute, heated the room very well.
Bedroom - bed was against the external wall which didn't seem to be well insulated. By early morning the pillows and head of the bed were very cold almost damp. I suggested the bed be turned so that the head was on an internal wall to reception on checkout. Curtains were very thin, not very dark. Bed however was very comfortable with plenty of blankets. The beds in the main room were very soft. Not to my liking but other people may like a soft bed.
Bathroom - the shower appeared updated but had the curse-of-the-tall-person shower head. At 6"1 water just went to mid chest. Required bending over to wash hair. Shower base is stainless steel which looked really nice but was quite slippery once soap was used. I suggested a non slip mat to reception on checkout. Towel rail is right next to the toilet which wasn't really nice but limited places to put it so can understand.
Housekeeping- unfortunately when we came back from our days outing, our wet towels were still in the shower base but the room had been serviced. The dishes had been done. I will assume that as it was a motel we were responsible for making our own bed.
Towel situation was quickly remedied by the lass at reception as well.
Free washing machine which was a nice touch. Realised too late that there was a clothes line to dry clothes.
This motel has great potential and I would like to see it once the renovations have been completed. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
