We had a great two night stay here. There was plenty of room for our family of four. The unit was very clean and tidy with a well appointed kitchen. With the weather getting cooler, we were very pleased that it was warm, cosy and quiet overnight.

With my work I get to travel New Zealand and this property is certainly up with the best. Extremely well furnished, comfortable bed, great shower and good free internet, what more does one want. Having a television in the bedroom was an added bonus. Situated on the main road close to the centre of town I found the property to... More

We stayed here a couple of nights and it was great for our needs. The room was large and had all the facilities we needed. It's only a short-ish walk into town. The couple who are the owners were very helpful. The room was clean and well-maintained

My parents and I stayed at Chelsea Park Motor Lodge for three nights during our trip to NZ in March. We all love the city and this place very much. We were warmly welcomed upon arrival. The room is modern, very clean and quiet. Free wi-fi. The kitchen is handy to cook your breakfast or quick dinner. We are most... More

My husband and I stayed here for 5 sleeps in March and would have stayed longer if our travel plans hadn't taken us away. The room was clean, quiet, spacious and modern with a really nice efficiency kitchen and dining area. It's a 10 minute walk to the heart of Nelson which was perfect for us (a little exercise before... More

What can I say other than terrific!! The room was spacious and clean and the inn keepers were the most helpful and accommodating of any we met during our trip. They even fixed our broken GPS as well as helping us book our visit to Tasman National Park. Their recommendation of a restaurant was the best food we ate during... More

Wonderful well appointed rooms. Not many motels would have leather lazy boy chairs in lounge and TVs in both lounge and bedroom with all sky channels. Owners thoroughly professional. Very close to town. Being in hub of Nelson it was a good base to set off on trips around region. Highly recommend this motel

Thanks for making time to write a review, we know it helps future guests. Our one bedroom spa apartments with leather lazy boys in the lounge are a great option, particularly for those staying a few days and wanting that extra space. With a TV in the lounge and the bedroom everyone can keep up to date with their favourite... More

The staff at the front desk are friendly and helpful. The room we stayed in was clean, spacious, and homey. Full kitchen with dining table, two bedrooms, and a living room with small balcony off to the side made for a great accommodation over the course of several days that we stayed in Nelson. The motor lodge is within easy... More

This is a well run motor lodge, with helpful friendly staff. The room was spacious & very clean, the bed was comfy, free wireless, SKY TV, and our 15 month old baby well catered for. The patio area was well kept, and afforded some privacy for evening drinkies.. Although sitting on the main road coming into the City, it was... More

The four of us having stayed in seven motels over the last few weeks, this is unquestionably the best we have found, and it's only in the mid price range as well. It's not the exceptional cleanliness and tidiness, or the spacious rooms we found, it's the little details which count- the full range of SKY channels on the big... More
