We stayed 3 nights in Cedarwoord Lakeside and really liked it. Its outside of Rotorua (10min drive), so you don't have the well known smell coming in your room😊. Quietly located near the beautiful Rotorua Lake. The cottage is nicely equiped with a fridge, microwave, Some kitchen utilities,... everything you need! We would recommend this motel/cottage!

These are self contained units by the lakeside. Nothing luxurious but very functional and good value for money. Good views of the lake and a small children's playground. They have one feature that a lot of your reviewers have missed. They have a function room attached that you can rent at a very modest price and have the family or...

Very disappointed with the owners of this property. Booked less than 24 hours ago, not realising there was a cancellation fee, had to cancel due to unforeseen circumstances. Contacted booking.com who tried to get the cancellation fee waived, without any success. Nobody's fault but mine, however Rotorua is a very busy place at this time of year so cedarwood will...

Rooms were clean, comfortable and spacious. For a one night stay it was very adequate. Location on the lake is pretty but a long way from town and any restaurants. Free parking in front of your room is convenient.

Self contained, self catering units, nice place for a weekend away or a longer trip, the views from all the units are good, but obviously they are best from the end units, and the cost is reflected in this. The facilities are good, having a solar heated pool is a nice addition and the spa pools are a very nice...

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...

For a family of 5 we chose a 2 bedroom lake view apartment. We were stunned with the beauty of the view and loved walking on the shore watching windsurfers on the lake. The apartment was immaculately clean with fresh milk on arrival and a warm welcome. It is out of the centre of town but well worth the drive...

We stayed in no10 which is one room away from the lakeside. The two bed cabin is spacious, well equipped and has a cracking view of the lake from inside and outside.
