We stayed in this lovely place during a conference in July 2011 and booked the 2 bedroom Presidential Suite. Even though this was already more than 1 1/2 years ago, I enjoy remembering this fantastic place quite alot. Everything was just perfect, the rooms are spacious, the bathroom of very high standard, the living room with electric fireplace, state-of-the-art heating system and cosy interior is a perfect place to relax and enjoy a nice glass of wine and you might even want to copy a few ideas for your own home. The owners are amazing people, super friendly, always helpful and with a lovely attitude. Thanks for the great time! Highly recommended!

This motel is pretty easy to find and looks clean and tidy from the outside. The owners checked us in and were really friendly and helpful. The room was immaculate with everything you might need and a great bathroom too with some nice products. There is a small patio where you can sit outside to have a meal or drink. The road is pretty busy outside but you can't hear any noise in the room. The owners were interested in out itinerary and suggested places to visit on our way to our next destination. Overall a great overnight stop.

Only stayed one night in this lovely small town. This motel was very modern, clean, quiet, close walk to town. Parking is good and the motel has all the amenities.
Owners were very helpful with tips on activities and restaurants.

We stayed only one night in Nelson with our one year old and the motel suited our needs. The decor is very modern. Furniture very comfortable. The hosts were very helpful, taking time to suggest places to eat, local tourist attractions, etc. We were quite impressed that they had childrens toys available which we did'nt encounter at any other accomodation, (although unfortunately we did'nt stay long enough to make use of them).

Parents travelling with young children are amazing! We love having families stay with us! We have a great booklet available which has been written by a young local mother, with lots of things to see and do with children. We hope we have the pleasure of having you stay a little longer with us sometime in the future. :-)

Stayed 3 nights & loved it! The units look brand new & modern, with good quality kitchen equipment & comfortable bed. Bathroom spacious with great shower.Well maintained garden in patio area but only fault was, the outdoor chairs weren't very comfortable. Everything was immaculate. Jan & Ross very friendly & helpful. Overall, a great place to stay, in a great location within 5 minutes walk into town. We will definitely stay there again when we next go to Nelson.

We visited Nelson to participate in the Nelson Festival of Chamber Music and stayed at Century Park for 10 nights. Our stay was superb from beginning to end. The Motel is like new with close attention to every detail. Every facility was available and the spa was an additional touch of luxury. Both Ross and Jan were great hosts available to answer any query about Nelson with some excellent recommendations on places to eat. However, if we chose to eat in the room everything is available to allow us to do that. We strongly recommend Century Park as a top place to stay in Nelson. In fact we found nothing to better it anywhere else in our travels through NZ.

Stayed 2 nights with my brother-in-law in the presidential suite. Spacious rooms and very comfortable beds. Not knowing Nelson we needed some recommendations for restaurants, places to visit etc and Jan and Ross could not have been kinder in taking time to help us to really enjoy Nelson in the limited time we had.So, with their superb local knowledge of what to do and where to go we really enjoyed our stay. I particularly appreciated the free wifi link up to my i-pad and Jan contacting me after we had left to say she was posting on a small travel alarm clock which I had inadvertently left in the room.Now thats service you don't often get these days !

Thanks for coming to spend time with us Bob & David, you sure saw a lot of this gorgeous area and we were amazed at how well you planned your days so you fitted everything in.
We're glad that you are able to spend time with your family in Dunedin and I bet that your grandson really loved having you at his birthday party!
