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.

We found the hosts Ross & Jan very friendly, they provided us with information, booklets and maps on things to do in Nelson and when we were leaving maps to help us on our West Coast travel. The room was presented beautifully, clean and with no road noise. We will certainly stay there on our next visit to Nelson.

We felt so at home as soon as we arrived at the Century. Ross was so helpful and very friendly and gave us ideas what to do and where to go. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite for our family of 4. Our suite was spacious enough for us. It was very clean and serviced every day. Our bed... More

Nelson is a lovely town and this motor lodge is a great place to stay. My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights as part of our NZ trip, where we stayed at over a dozen motels altogether. This ranked near the top - it is well-managed, clean and located reasonably near the town centre. Compared to some of... More

We have 3 daughters at NCG - a stone's throw away! It's lovely being able to run up the path to see them, and they felt welcome to come and go. Very comfortable, immaculately clean, great spa bath, friendly owners, and a very welcome discount for parents of Boarders at NCG.

We travelled around the South Island for 4 weeks March/April 2015 this was by far the best all-round accommodation. Room was spotlessly clean and the owners were so helpful, even offered to drive us to the restaurant they'd recommended for dinner (The Boat Shed which was superb). Hired the bikes from here (free) and visited some craft brew pubs. Stayed... More

We stayed twice at the Century Park...at each end of a trek through Abel Tasman National Park. We loved the hotel...especially its interior decorating. It's "quirky" Hollywood theme stressing Marilyn Monroe really worked for us although other may think it tacky. They had great laundry services on site. As with other small NZ hotels, parking can be a little tricky... More

Second time here and really loved it- twice over. Management are super classy and really helpful, rooms are immaculate and beautifully presented. Close to town centre and easy to find. Will be back again next year for sure!
