The room is clean and warm. You can cook in the kitchen by yourself. Kids getting enough place to have fun. They like the playground beside the apartment. Nice location! You can enjoy the great lake view from dawn until dark. Friendly host!

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 27 December 2016

Sometimes you find a place by accident and wish you could stay longer, but time waits for no one of course! We were in Rotorua for 36 hours which only included one night and we were fortunate that it was at Cedarwood. As mentioned in previous reviews, Rotorua can be a little, ahem, sulphurous! It is all part of the...

Most helpful and kind host. The place is a few minutes drive away from the city centre. This gives it a relaxed and noice free environment. It's a bit more than walking distance to down town area, but taxis are easy to get, and the bus stop is nearby. I would highly recommend Cedarwood Lakeside if you are looking for...

Although the apartments did not look special from the outside, the inside was beautifully finished in wood cabin style, giving it a very warm and cozy feel. Although the rooms are a bit small (we had difficulty positioning our luggage without blocking the way), these were comfortable and clean. The kitchenette was also well equipped. Service staff were cheerful. The...

Clean, spacious units and friendly staff who go the extra mile to help (even posting an item we left in our room back to us). Our children loved the spa, heated pool, playground (and the cat!), as well as the space to ride their bikes around with other kids staying there. Unlimited wifi and bike storage was much appreciated. We...

We stayed with our two kids and were so happy to be by the gorgeous lake and with a fantastic playground and pool/spa! Will definitely stay again. We left some keys behind and they posted them on to us which was very helpful. Clean and comfortable!
