I stayed for one night at this hotel and was very impressed by the facilities and quality of service. My room was immaculate with sky movies, DVDs available, together with tea making facilities. The hotel reception very kindly provided me with free transport to the bus station and were extremely helpful.

We're pleased you enjoyed your brief stay at Chelsea Park and the amenities we offer. While not a usual service that we offer, Barry was happy to offer the ride to the bus on his way elsewhere. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your visit to New Zealand and hope you can spend longer in Nelson next time to... More

We stayed four nights at Chelsea Park, and we're very impressed with how cosy, and exceptionally quiet this motel was. Rooms were serviced efficiently and early, every day. Staff were helpful and polite. Thoroughly recommend this motel for a well priced stay option, in this beautiful provincial town.

Although on one of the main routes into Nelson, we had a quiet night's sleep and enjoyed our stay in our recently refurbished "executive" room. We were only there for a night but enjoyed the spa bath and relaxing lazyboy chairs in the main room. The bed was pretty comfortable too! Excellent service from the relieving receptionist/supervisor.

Earlier this month we stayed a night at Chelsea Park Motor Lodge. It was an excellent experience with a lovely one bedroomed unit that was spacious and clean. The service from the owners was superb. The recommendation for dinner was spot on. We would thoroughly recommend.

The one night stay at Chelsea was a truly memorable experience. The owner went out of his way to make us welcome and accommodate our demands. The room , especially the comfy Lazy Boy chairs was a great way to relax after a long drive. The very silent rooms certainly led to a great nights sleep. I would suggest anyone... More

Beds and linen were good quality, bathroom was tidy, spa bath was awesome and the kitchen was well equipped. It was a bit cold in the mornings when we got up... More

Chelsea Park Motor Lodge was a great place to stay while I was in Nelson working. The hosts were absolutely delightful; friendly and very helpful.
