We just rocked up when we arrived in Nelson and they sorted us a room out straight away. The rooms are smart, clean and have modern fittings. The kitchen looks nice, but is basic and could do with a few more pans. I bet if i'd asked, I would have been provided with anything i needed though, so my own... More

We booked the 2 bedroom suite for a single night stay as three f us wanted to be comfortable. And it did not disappoint- modern decor, well appointed, well laid out. A joy to occupy. And centrally located to the Nelson CBD as well. Special thanks to our hosts who were great with recommendations nor only for Nelson, but also... More

Well at last, great value with everything you need, a true 5 stars. Might suggest that other moteliers take a look at this one, they will certainly learn a thing or two. I was starting to think my standards must be too high but Century Park restored my faith.

This motel fully deserves its 4 1/2 star rating. It is very comfortable, quiet, warm and it is excellently situated, being within easy walking distance to the main street of Nelson. We were in a room soon to be refurbished - it was nevertheless still very tidy and spotlessly clean. There was also a spa bath. We are shown a... More

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.
