We enjoyed our stay at Century Park very much. The service was very good and the room was modern and very clean. We had an issue with the WiFi and some TV channels not working, which was a motel wide issue, and they actioned it very quickly trying all they could and were persistent until it was fixed. It is...

A group of us visited Nelson for a conference. A beautiful modern, clean motel within easy reach of the town centre. Lovely room, with a little balcony. Great facilities, spa bath, comfy bed. Would definitely recommend.

Can't fault the location. Everything in the room was brand spanking new and clean. Only marginal complaint was lack of a room delivered full English breakfast but having to eat a healthy continental brekky didn't kill me. Probably a bit on the expensive side for the average traveler but you have to spoil yourself occasionally and I was treated a... More

Friends who stayed in other places were so envious. Century park is new, fresh, amazingly clean and so central. The service is outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble, the manager even suggested a safe route for an early evening run. Number one in nelson for good reason.

Stayed for 3 nights. Arrival coincided with a change of owners. It will be interesting to monitor if the new owners can maintain the fantastic customer service provided by the previous owners. Room is decorated superbly and has all one needs for a excellent stay. Bed was super comfortable and heating worked a treat. A couple of minor teething problems,... More

This really is more like a hotel that's been laid out to enable motel-style access. The room was luxurious, as was the fabulous jacuzzi bath. We enjoyed a glass of wine on the balcony before heading out to one of the recommended restaurants for dinner. The owners were friendly and helpful, and we would happily stay again should we return... More

Reasonably new (6 years old) hotel. Exceptionally well fitted out rooms with kitchen, powerful heat-pump (cooling and heating), TV and free wifi. Similar price to other hotels with much older and less well fitted rooms. Highly recommend if you are visiting Nelson.

What a great place! The room was thoughtfully equipped - good selection of glassware/dishes/utensils, dishwasher, seating area inside and on the small patio outside (very private). The bath had a shower of adequate height (nice if your husband is 6'4") and the mirror was heated! No steamy mirror - loved it. Located a short walk to town, groceries, etc. Owners... More
