“Attention to detail second to none”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2010

The family who run this sparkling clean establishment have made it the best motel we've stayed in ever. We stayed in the Presidential Suite which felt as if it was brand new. The manageress/owner worked in the tourist information office previously. It shows. Great place.

Just wanted to write a positive review of our recent stay at Century Park Motor Lodge. The motel is conveniently located to the city centre and within easy walking distance. In terms of cleanliness it is spotless and brand new. My wife loved the spa in our one bedroom unit. The owners dp their utmost to keep you happy and assist with any queries/restaurants/wineries/activities etc you may have.

We would def stay again as Nelson has SO much to offer.

We stayed at the Century Park Motor Lodge for a couple of nights for the last part of our honeymoon trip and got the best service/facilities. As a special treat we got an upgrade of the room to one with a spa for free! It's a new hotel and the interior design of the rooms is modern yet cosy and extra clean. What made it stand out from many other hotels in New Zealand was the free internet. I highly recommend this place to anyone who wants some luxury at a reasonable price.

We located the Century Park Motor Lodge on the internet and were swayed into spending the night in Nelson at this Motor Lodge, between here and the Alpine Lake Motor Lodge in Taupo we would have to toss a coin pick a winner, both have lived up to and even exceeded the reviews in some cases.

The Century Park Motor Lodge does not show any signs of the usual abuse by patrons i.e. chipped corners on walls, mark and stains on the walls etc. which is a credit to both the owners and the type of clientele their establishment and service attracts.

You are made to feel at home the moment you are greeted at Reception which helps to set the mood of your stay after an early morning start to the day traveling from Wellington.

We stayed here on our stop in Nelson since it had such good reviews. All I can say is this place lived up to and exceeded the expectations. Jan was very friendly and helpful when we first got there. She upgraded us to a room with a jacuzzi tub. She suggested we go to this local supermarket to buy some food and one night we even ran into her there. Another day after coming back from the beach where we had dropped our camera in the sand, she let us use the vacuum cleaner to get sand out of our camera. Fantastic and lovely host. Will stay here again.

Century Park was very centrally located, within walking distance to the main shopping centre of Nelson. Surprisingly quiet, considering it is right in the city. High quality unit with all the trimmings. Jan, Ross and Brendon were extra friendly hosts and we would definitely stay here again and highly recommend Century Park to travellers, both local and from abroad.
