The room was very well appointed, as were the grounds, lovely to see someone take so much pride. The kitchenette was great, we were able to make a meal to take... 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.

We enjoyed staying at this motel. After travelling the South Island and staying in 12 different motels this motel was one of the best. Very friendly service, spacious warm room and extremely cosy bed. Chattels were of a high standard and a well equipped kitchen. This was the only motel which offered a hot wash in the laundry. Well positioned... More

I visited Nelson to attend a conference at a nearby hotel and I am glad that I chose the Century Park Motor Lodge. I booked early September for a group of 14. Typically the numbers varied from week to week but this was not a problem for the Century Park. On arrival we all got given details of phone numbers... More

Very comfortable and spacious apartment with everything you could possibly want for a city stay. Very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was delivered the evening before which was perfect for my husband's early start and my more leisurely start to the day. Very short walk into town to a good choice of restaurants.
