We booked a 2 bedroom lakeside unit with an amazing view. Unit was very clean and comfortable. Wished we had stayed longer than 1 night as a very peaceful spot and handy to everything. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful. Would thoroughly recommend as a great place to stay in Rotorua.
Online this place looks OK, however on checking in we found our unit to be run down, the carpet old and dirty, the PU leather couches all shedding their 'leather', cigarette butt's everywhere outside including right on our unit steps, the pool is tiny, the trampolines are unsafe, and the unit smelt bad. I turned a cushion over and it was filty, the covers have obviously never been washed. The dining chairs had rust spots on them. I felt like I didn't want to touch anything myself, let alone have my 4 year old daughter in the unit. To top it all off, it's miles out of town. I can't believe the audacity of this owner, charging $193 a night for this place. What a joke. Don't stay here.
My family and I stayed in 2 units at the start of the year. The units were great, the location was great and finally the hosts were great. We will definitely be back. This is a great location if you want to go to the lakes or mountain bike.
We stayed for 3 nights. The studio room was very comfortable, quiet and had everything we needed. We had two mountain bikes which we could store securely in the bike shed. We hired kayaks from reception and it was all organised easily. The location is nice and quiet with beautiful views of the lake. The host, Leon, was very friendly and helpful. A great place to stay and we're already planning to stay here again.
Leon and Grace were exceptionally welcoming and accommodating of our large group on our Harley's. Security service well over and above expectations. Rooms were clean, comfortable and super easy to access. Facilities were readily available. Such a very quiet peaceful spot - no road traffic noise nor airport noise. A very family/group orientated venue. Top notch - thanks Leon and Grace, we look forward to seeing you both again next year.
Outstanding hosts that made our large group (16 rooms I think) feel most welcomed, nothing was too much trouble, easy, caring, helpful, clean comfortable lockwood-style room accommodation, and friendly hosts - thank you Leon and your wife. Rooms clean and two- bedroom units very spacious. Superb grounds with fully fenced warm outdoor pool and spa, kids play ground area, fantastic bbq and outdoor space. Confrence room also available. Quiet and right at lake edge. Whilst not at city centre ( its near airport at Holden Bay), supermarket etc only 1km.
Great location by Lake Rotorua, clean units with very good facilities. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We did find the bed very uncomfortable and there was no recycling so unfortunately can't give it top rating.
An all round lovely place to stay right by the lake and not far from the city. Our two bedroom unit was exceptionally clean, the beds super comfortable and the heat pump certainly did the job of keeping it warm. We made much use of the outdoor and indoor spa pools and borrowed a few DVD's from their extensive library. Would thoroughly recommend for groups and families. Great value for money. Thank you Leon for accommodating us in such a welcoming way.. my teenagers both commented on what an exceptionally nice person you are!
We organised a family get together, before COVID. Unfortunately things went a little pear shaped?! Leon could not have been more accommodating. as we had to cancel rooms for overseas visitors etc. We still got to use his fantastic conference facilities, with everything you could possibly need on hand. Next morning we all awoke to the peace, tranquility and beautiful setting of the motel on the lake edge. I have had so many comments from family, that they thoroughly enjoyed their weekend and the venue. So... thank you Leon for making it all possible!!
Just spent long weekend at Cedarwood. What a great place. Great accommodation. Great location. Will definitely be coming back. Thanks Leon we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and thank you for letting us park our boat on the grass. You’ll be pleased to know we caught some trout.
