“NIce easy luxury stay in Ambassador Suite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

We stayed just two nights here as a base for exploring Nelson and Abel Tasman, found staff friendly and easy going, room good size, luxury and clean, location good and relaxing quiet surroundings.Would recommend to anyone staying in Nelson short or longer term.

Glad you could spend time exploring the Abel Tasman National Park, it sure is an amazing area. Let's hope you get back to stay in the Nelson area sometime in the future. Kind regards Ross & Jan

We stayed one night and absolutely enjoyed it. The hosts were very friendly with local advice. The room was lovely, perfectly clean and a delight to stay in. Central location, great bed and furnishings, awesome spa pool, would recommend it for sure.

Room Tip: Spa pool! It's a must ;)

We stayed at the Century Park Motor Lodge and give ist 5 stars. The studio room was very comfortable and quiet. Receptionist very helpful. Great bed and amenities. Fantastic location. Excellent value. Easy to get to as we drove there from a southerly direction and heading north. There was a kitchenette with a dishwasher and a DVD player.We parked our higher car for free as well. It is a short walk to restaurants and shops.

Room Tip: Very comfortable, rooms all good.

Our 4 nights at the Century Park kicked off a spectacular visit to the South Island. Owners Jan & Ross were fabulously accommodating, emailing across the miles to ensure the best arrangements for 10 family members spanning three generations. Our (spotless!) suites suited us perfectly, and the beds and spa baths were beyond splendid after our rain-soaked day trips. Absolutely recommended, for anyone visiting Nelson!

Hi Jackie, what a wonderful bunch of people you were and lots of fun to have staying with us. Sorry we didn't manage to give you the sunshine that Nelson is so well known for, but perhaps next time you organise to stay in this wonderful area, we can turn the sunny weather on for you :-) Kind regards Ross & Jan

We stayed at the Century Park Motor Lodge and give it 5 stars. The studio room was beautiful and tastefully furnished. It had a modern built-in kitchen with stainless-steel appliances including a dishwasher. The bed was really comfortable and the room quiet and peaceful. We did not have a car and had walked from the bus station when we arrived in town The owner offered to drive us back to the bus station when we left. This was New Zealand hospitality at its best. Thank you, Century Park Motor Lodge.

I occasionally need to come to Nelson to complete block course study and I will always choose to stay here. Jan and Ross are lovely friendly hosts that make you feel very welcome. Century Park Motor Lodge is in a great location and is just a nice 10 min walk to the centre of town. The rooms are lovely and cleaned to a very high standard. I can totally recommend staying here - 5 stars!

Really friendly and helpful hosts, even came looking for me when I was late back to get my taxi to airport - how good is that? Impeccable room presentation. Easy stroll to town centre. Would definitely stay again.
