We stayed at Century Park for three nights a few days ago and were very impressed first off with a warm welcome we received from owner Jackie. We were further impressed by the very high standard of presentation of the room. The room was very modern, super warm, quiet, well kept and maintained, with a high level of appointments. Liberal...

We have used the Century Park Motor Lodge as our last taste of civilization before and after tramping in 2014 and 2013. THe rooms are modern and well appointed. The location is within easy walking distance of the downtown shops and restaurants. I cannot say enough about the kindness of the hosts who helped facilitate our tramp in many ways... More

Stayed overnight for a birthday dinner. Stylish modern décor. Host added a single bed for our son; it has a decent mattress. Walking distance to the centre of town. The only negative I can think of, and it's not within the hotel's control, is the sad looking empty section next door, which the units on the first level will overlook... More

We booked here after our drive from Kaikoura and provided everything we needed as well as a comfortable stay. A small kitchenette was great and room and bathroom were clean. Free Wi-Fi was great and staff were friendly upon check in. Great for a stop off during our tour of South Island. Thanks

Normally stay at Sails but it was full so was recommended this place what a great little spot. Extremely comfortable unit and one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in during a stay in a hotel. Very good room overall and would recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in Nelson.
