Very professional staff, helpful and friendly! Perfect property, centrally located and well equipped. By the way Nelson`s surrounding offers a lot of opportunities for recreational activities! Fantastic panorama route between Nelson and Picton overlooking the sounds....this is a must

Lovely hotel walking distance to most sites. Nicely appointed. Spacious rooms. Kitchenette with everything you need. But best of all are the lovely owners. Jan helped us book a reservation to Wellington by plane when the ferry was down. She gave us great tips on restaurants. They made us feel so comfortable. I would not stay any other place in... More

Beautiful 5 Star rooms with everything you could possibly need. Plus easy walking distance to good restaurants and the Nelson Market. And Kiwis are known for their hospitality but Jan went above and beyond. I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Nelson.

Having never been to Nelson, Century Motor lodge suited us for everything we wanted to do. From the moment we arrived we were greeted with exceptional service at the front desk, our room was impeccably clean and the location was within walking distance to the town centre. Would definitely recommend staying here.

I echo the other reviewers' superlatives (lovely place, excellent service, convenient walk to charming Nelson and good restaurant recommendations, etc.) but the real proof of their exceptional service came when I left my brand new red jacket in the closet. Sweet Jan (manager extraordinaire) tracked me down by phone and email (although we were long gone to the Fox Glacier)... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in March and found the rooms very new and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The lodge was a 5 min walk from the main strip. The rates were very reasonable and we were given a free upgrade.

Excellent accommodation. Clearly the owners want guests to enjoy their experience. Excellent facilities. Every base is covered very well. One of the best places we have ever enjoyed anywhere in the world. Congratulations for doing a superior business.

Very friendly and helpful staff - laundry facility was great. Staff went out of their way to help and this was the best motel that we stayed in during our 2 weeks on South Island - very happy with this choice

We first visited three years ago and made a beeline to return when in Nelson this time. It is a family run business and the owners are charming and really helpful. The motel is the best we have stayed in in all of our travels throughout NZ – well designed rooms, very comfortable with great amenities. Certainly feels as fresh... More
