Return visitor to Cedar Lodge. Never disappoints. Rooms clean, tidy, warm, and spacious. Staff always friendly and welcoming. Always impressed with how quiet it is, particularly given location next to SH1.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
We were running late and had to ring to say we would be checking in late. Our room light was left on for us, heater and electric blankets were on too! We even got an extra sachet of hot chocolate for us to enjoy when we arrived. Hot water took awhile to get hot but it did! Not a complaint though just an observation. Great service and hubby loved the bed in our room.
