My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Century Park, the hosts were extremely accommodating and went out of their way to help us find local places to see and experience. Once we had booked online, they sent us an email with the best restaurants in town and their contact details advising us if we did want to go... More

I have been travelling to Nelson on business trips for many years and have switched to staying at Century Park Motor Lodge over the past couple of years. I stay at various locations throughout the South Island on work trips and rate this as the best value for money option without question. The overall service, room quality, amenities and location...

We spent one night at Century Park Motor Lodge and we were VERY impressed by how immaculate the room was and how helpful the staff were to accommodate our toddler. The room felt very modern and fresh. We had a very comfortable stay and had everything we needed and more. We would be more than happy to stay here again... More

What an amazing unit! This is by far one of the nicest set up units we've stayed in. So beautifully presented and clean. The furnishing, ambience and provisions are outstanding. Loved having a TV in the bedroom as well! Also finally a bathroom with better lighting and the spa bath great for a cold night and after travelling 5 hours...so... More

I've stayed in The Century Park Motel" four times in my travels from the USA and found it to be the absolute best. I stay in the "handicap" room which has a kitchenette and a walk in shower and find everything in the room to be quite accessible and well supplied. I also like the fact that in addition to... More

This hotel was modern and immaculate. Just a great room, and quite helpful staff at the front desk. The main drawback is the location -- on a busy city street with an uninteresting walk in to town. I still give the hotel 5 stars because the walk wasn't that long. Everything else about the hotel was spot on.

Our group of three couples stayed here on our way to and from the Abel Tasman. The place was very clean and comfortable. Jan was very accommodating in helping us get our laundry done while we were there as we didn't have a lot of time. They also kept some of our luggage for us while we were on the... More

What a fabulous 'home away from home'. From the warm friendly welcome we received on arrival; the 'nothing is too much trouble' hospitality during our stay to the moment we had to leave, Jan and Ross were the perfect hosts in a truly fabulous motel. Our room was spacious, beautifully furnished and a lovely place to relax at the end... More

Fantastic, how a business should be run! Super helpful and lovely service, fantastic room and amazing vibe. Made Nelson our favorite part of our holiday to receive such a warm and refreshing reception. Very highly recommended!
