“Wonderful accommodation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

We stayed at the Century Park Motor Lodge and give it 5 stars. The studio room was beautiful and tastefully furnished. It had a modern built-in kitchen with stainless-steel appliances including a dishwasher. The bed was really comfortable and the room quiet and peaceful. We did not have a car and had walked from the bus station when we arrived in town The owner offered to drive us back to the bus station when we left. This was New Zealand hospitality at its best. Thank you, Century Park Motor Lodge.

I occasionally need to come to Nelson to complete block course study and I will always choose to stay here. Jan and Ross are lovely friendly hosts that make you feel very welcome. Century Park Motor Lodge is in a great location and is just a nice 10 min walk to the centre of town. The rooms are lovely and cleaned to a very high standard. I can totally recommend staying here - 5 stars!

Really friendly and helpful hosts, even came looking for me when I was late back to get my taxi to airport - how good is that? Impeccable room presentation. Easy stroll to town centre. Would definitely stay again.

Hi Diane, it was great having you stay with us recently, many thanks for coming to spend time with us at Century Park. We're glad that you made it to the airport in time :-) It is an expensive business if you don't get there in time. Kind regards Ross & Jan

We've stayed at quite a few places in Nelson City over the years, none of which we've reviewed on TA because we were always a bit under-whelmed.
Now we wish we'd tried Century Park earlier as we would have slept better and enjoyed much more value for money!
Jan and Ross were very friendly and helpful in sorting out a booking mix-up on our part during a recent weekend visit, and upgraded us to a large studio with a super-comfy king bed and spa bath.
The room itself was spotless, spacious, quiet and very well kitted out, with lots of little extras that we really appreciated.
Including the note suggesting that fake tan aficionados like me grab a brown towel from reception instead of stressing about making a mess of the white ones after my spa bath! It would be great if this was more common.
Wifi is excellent; location an easy walk to the centre of town and for once we actually managed a sleep in instead of being woken by Monday morning traffic.
We'll definitely be back.

We had a really lovely stay! The rooms were comfortable, clean and the fireplace added a nice touch.
Also the information we got from the owners about the local area was really helpful and Nelson is a cute little town.

Yes Nelson is a cute little City, a bit sleepy compared to the huge country you come from, but there are so many wonderful things to do in the incredible area. Kind regards Ross & Jan

Super comfortable, attractive suite with well-appointed kithenette. The whole place was in tip top shape. Easy walking to the charming downtown area, as well as a good supermarket so we could self-cater breakfasts and some dinners. We especially appreciated the welcoming and helpful owners on site. Couldn't ask for more for our 5 night visit to Nelson area and its lovely attractions.
