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...

We were so impressed with this place. We needed a couple of nights in Napier and didn't want to pay a fortune just for a bed as we were going to be busy during the days. Cedar Court was just great. Very clean and tidy. The staff were friendly and obliging when we needed anything. I had been concerned about...

Quiet due to concrete walls. Nothing spectacular, but you get real milk for the coffee, tea and hot chocolate sachets. Soap, shampoo, conditioner and moisturizer all manuka honey gave a nice touch. Plenty of towels. Good bed. We will come back.

We stopped here for one night on our way to Wellington. We arrived earlier than the customary check in time and, even though our room was not yet ready, we were allowed to store some food in the refrigerator. We then left to drive into Napier. The motel is dated but very clean and spacious. Staff was very friendly. This...

My husband and I recently stayed at the Cedar Court Motel. Over 5 nights, we stayed in two units - a smaller one downstairs and a larger one upstairs. Both were extremely clean. The kitchen units had the basics which were in good condition. Beds were comfortable. There were plenty of tv channels. And the staff was friendly and helpful....

Comfortable, clean, spacious and well equipped. We found this motel supplied everything we needed to make our stay pleasant and welcoming. The owner is very friendly. The motel although on a main road is quiet and there is off road parking. There is a general store within easy walking distance ( 5 minutes walk away) which sells the basics ....

With an Aged Parent in a Napier Rest Home and living in another city I've stayed in Cedar Courts Mobility unit 7 times already this year as I'm able to bring her there for the day. It's the only time she leaves the Rest Home as she can easily cope with its level entry, plenty of room inside to manage...

Seems like going back to the 80s when I first enter this motel. Most furniture, cabinets seems dated (apart from the LCD TV, satellite and heater unit of course),BUT its all there, complete with just what you need to stay comfortably. We arrived late around 830 although the cut off check in time as mentioned in the web is by...

Being located right opposite the Ahuriri Estuary, you can walk along the estuary track while enjoying the beautiful view and sunrise/sunset with friends and family. Our rooms were sparkling clean. There is a trampoline for the kids too. The owner was very nice and helpful and went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed and...

The motel was ok. Clean but had an unpleasant smell and was quite noisy at night with all the cars going past on a busy road. To be honest I'm not sure how this has won a trip advisor award, the highlight was the sky tv.
