“Day in Nelson for Graduation Ceremony”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

The Chelsea Park Motor Lodge was chosen for the location walking distance into main Nelson centre.We were very pleased with the presentation and cleanleness of the the units,and the spa bath was just great.The owners were more than helpful and took an interest in the reason for our visit.We would have no hesitation in staying there again when in Nelson

Nice place to stay, have stayed here in the past, the only criticism is we would have liked a softer bed, Service is good, Nice and close to town, easy walking distance. Lady looking after the place was very helpful.

I have stayed at these motels many times over the years, including twice in the last month. The location is excellent being an easy walk from the many attractions of central Nelson. Even though it is on a busy road your never hear the traffic and I am a light sleeper. And the units are always clean - good sized TV with 50+ chanels. Beds are very comfortable and the kitchen has everything you will need. And even with a 9.30 p m arrival Lee was there to great us. Will stay here again any time.

Personal service and attention to detail uncompromising. Standard of interior design and decoration outstanding. Every item of equipment desired is provided, and easy walking distance to town. The separate lounge provided a perfect business meeting venue for four people, could have taken six comfortably. Highly recommended.

We have stayed here a few times now and wouldn't stay anywhere else when visiting Nelson. The units are modern and clean and the shower/spa bath is amazing! Nice private patio area to soak up the sun, whilst enjoying the Nelson delights of seafood and wine! Upon check out, we always re-book for the following year! We highly recommend the Chelsea Park Motor Lodge in Nelson.

Room Tip: We prefer units on the ground level, as you get a nice outdoor private patio area right off your lou...

we stayed for 3 nights while touring around Nelson. The unit has recently been renovated and is very nice appointed. The kitchenette provided most equipment to make a meal, although a large mixing bowl to assemble ingredients would be a welcome addition. The motel is located an easy walking distance to the town centre but on a main road, which makes it easy to go touring outside of Nelson. A good grocery supermarket is near by. The owners are very nice and helpful on what to see and do in the area and where to dine out.

Barry and Lee work tirelessly to run what must surely be the best Motel in this region. Nothing was too much trouble, as they guided me throughout my stay. I was provided journey planning advice and they even took me to the car rental firm to collect my vehicle.

The rooms are very well designed and perfect for relaxed self catering. A substantial breakfast could be ordered and always delivered promptly to the room . The wash rooom was immaculate with a powerful and refreshing shower, and well supplied daily with fresh towels and soaps. The fridge was kept stocked with fresh milk so as tea and coffee can be made at any time, day or night.

The position of the Chelsea is perfect for accessing all of the shops, restaurants and facilties that the lovely town of Nelson has to offer, as well as providing easy access to the major highways when exploring the magnificent scenery and landscapes of the north of the South Island.

Great value and I wouldn't stay anywhere else when returning.

Thanks Martyn for taking the time to write a review. We hope the conference and visit 'down under' turn out to be more productive than the fishing expeditions! The weather has certainly settled in the past few weeks since your visit so it feels like we are well into the summer season.
Hopefully we will see you back in the future for some more fishing.
