About Us

Welcome to our place.

First established in the 1950s, Cedar Lodge Motel has been extensively refurbished in 2019 with a focus on retaining a traditional Kiwi hospitality feel. We love welcoming guests from around the country and around the world, but don't just take our word for it - here's what our guests say:

"The Cedar Lodge Team have got it right. A big welcome made us feel like we had just come home. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was always serviced and clean. Strongly recommend the Cedar Lodge Motel."

Peter, January 2018

"Everything was perfect - quiet, comfortable and clean"

Ian, April 2018

"We slept so well. Very hot weather but these units were cool with windows front and back so the breeze could blow through. Very clean. Very comfortable and definitely recommended."

Robin B., January 2019

"A little gem. The Lazyboy chairs in the lounge were a lovely sight after sitting in a car all day."

Sue Y., November 2018

"If you are after a well-priced motel which is a 2 minute walk to the botanic gardens and 5 minute drive to town and want to be made to feel like a valued guest then stay here."

Marianne M. November 2017

"Nice quiet location, Clean, tidy and warm. Would recommend to anyone."

Moparninja, May 2018
