What is it about Nelson accomodation? The options are motor lodges or small bnbs or hostels. It makes deciding where to go a bit tough if you don't dig motor lodges. Anyway, this place came up as top dog or close to it on trip advisor. Nothing else looked as good. I signed up. The reception staff are helpful and... More

An excellent room with all the advertised facilities and spotlessly clean. Ross and Jan were delightful and very helpful with everything - laundry, advice on visitor attractions and restaurants, even offering us a lift. Nothing was too much trouble.

Stayed here for three nights and EVERYTHING was the best we have experienced in any motel in NZ. Our apartment was spotless, large, furnished in contemporary style, very comfortable and had a bathroom I would like in my own house! Well done to Jan & Ross on producing the perfect place to stay- it was our first visit to Nelson... More

Three night stay at this excellent property. Great location. A few minute walk to the CBD with really good restaurants. The hotel staff were extremely helpful with recommendations.

We stayed for three nights and enjoyed some outstanding hospitality from the moment we arrived. Our hosts went out of their way to make sure our stay was special, understanding what might interest us, pointing us I the right direction and even running us down to the recommended restaurant (Boat Shed Cafe - excellent). The motel is situated close to... More

Century Park was our first taste of staying at an NZ motel and nothing else came close in terms of the facilities on offer combined with the hosts commitment to fantastic customer service. Modern, spotlessly clean and with a great central location (5-10 mins walk to shops and restaurants). Highly recommended.

Booked for 3 nights, stayed for 5. Top motel with all the best facilities and in a great location to get around Nelson city. Certainly the owners know how to make ones stay comfortable. Rates very high when compared to other motels in NZ.

We stayed here for 2 nights in mid November, and wished we could have stayed longer. Our 2 bedroom unit was beautiful, well-equipped and immaculate! The owners were super friendly and extremely helpful. We enjoyed being able to walk to the cathedral, the oldest street in NZ, and restaurants. Hoping to return someday.
