Although located on busy road room was very quiet, modern decor, friendly service. Free wifi. Average price for Nelson, above average quality. 1km walk to restaurants, shopping. Recommend for business travellers. Possibly not so great for families.

We stayed one night on a quick trip to Nelson. This motel is in a great location handy to town and hospitals. The executive studio unit was well equipped and comfortable. Pleasant greeting on arrival.

We stayed two nights at Century Park Motor Lodge and could not fault it. From the warm friendly reception to the spotlessly clean comfortable room to the quiet secure outside area. It was prefect. I have tried hard to think of anything that might be a negative so I can give fair appraisal but there is none. We regularly stay... More

We had another great long weekend at Century Park Motor Lodge where we always stay when we visit Nelson. It doesn't matter how many times you visit, the staff are always so friendly and happy to see you, and just can't do enough for you to make your stay a memorable one. The top class rooms are so clean, comfortable... More

We had many fine accommodations during our 3 1/2 week tour in NZ and this was one of our favorites. Modern, well appointed and spacious room. Very comfortable bed and quiet; kitchen well appointed (with dishwasher). Everything spotless. Helpful host with good suggestions, e.g. Saturday morning market (don't miss). As comfortable as home. Highly recommend.

My husband, myself, daughter and son-in-law and their two young children stayed here in January this year. We had a 2 bedroom (room 106) and a standard studio (room 105) between us. The lockable outer entrance door made the two rooms like one apartment when we wanted access to both rooms and yet we could isolate each unit when either... More

Lovely hosts. Rooms and amenities first class. Would definitely use again and recommend to anyone else. Great compendium advising on local eateries, etc. Very comfortable bed! Located close to town, so an easy walk.

To sum it all up - Fantastic. The unit was spacious,clean and functional. The hosts could not do enough for us to help us whether it be giving advice on what to see or even letting us use their clothesline to dry clothes. The best unit we stayed in NZ.
