We stayed at the Century Park Motor Lodge for 3 nights and it was a wonderful place to stay. The owners gave us some good tips for restaurants and companies to use for trips we had planned and each single tip turned out to be very good. The motel itself is very close to downtown (2 blocks), very conveniently located... More

Lovely well serviced accommodation which is well maintained and comfortable - with all you need. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. We were advised regarding dining and places to visit. Even dropped off at the restaurant. Thoroughly enjoyed all the restaurants and places we were advised to visit. Situated within walking distance of town and markets. Highly recommend the Century...

When we first walked into our room at the Century Park we knew this was the best accommodation that we had in New Zealand. The decor and furnishings were high quality and the room was bright and cheerful. We had an executive room on the first floor with a small kitchenette and garden sitting area. We arrived without a car... More

We were very comfortable, this is one of the best , the room we had was perfect. The Manager/owners were helpful and friendly. Good central location, you can walk to town and the market or restaurants. Would recommend this lodge to family and friends, we will be back at some stage.

We were made very welcome and had a lovely room with everything we wanted and needed. Very handy to the city. Jan was very helpful to us after our walk on the Abel Tasman track. Would certainly recommend this place to family and friends.

We were very pleasantly impressed with the Century Park Motor Lodge - the apartment was spotless, exceptionally well equipped and everything we hoped it would be. The rooms were finished to a very high standard and the Manager/Owners were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The apartment we stayed in slept four, but for the first night only we also had...

Had 2 lovely nights at Century Park in Nelson. It's pretty new, so everything is in perfect condition. It was very clean, and quiet!! And an easy walk to town (5 mins). Only negative was the heat pump/air conditioner. When switched on, (which I needed on my first night) it shone a green light which was quite bright in the... More

My wife and I stayed in the hotel in December 2014, we were really pleased with the room and the location of the hotel! We were able to walk to the centre of Nelson where all the awesome little restaurants, cafes, and bars were located. Staff were very helpful in the hotel and they had a good laundry to do... More

Owned & managed by a really pleasant & helpful couple. Stayed here twice now on business, both times excellent. Absolutely spotless room, bright airy & spacious with very high end furnishings. Also pretty central for most of the town.

Room was unattractive (lots of brown), looked out onto a shabby house. Dishes in dishwasher were dirty when I walked in, paid extra for sauna tub and there were 2 loose hairs and a dead fly in there. Also, be wary of free wifi code - they charge you if you go over the data limit, but don't flag if... More
