From the outset, our host contacting us to offer superior room arrangements, the service was excellent and our host most helpful and friendly. Lovely rooms and easy walking distance to town. We will be booking here next time we are down.

Stayed here for one night whilst in Nelson, was very nice, clean, extremely comfortable and great friendly service. Had a huge spa bath with jets in our bathroom - very romantic.

certainly the very best motel we have stayed in in New Zealand if not anywhere we have travelled - the extra miles our hosts went to to make us feel completely "at home" in such a freindly and welcoming manner was such a joy - the accommodation was superb - we would put Chelsea Park on a priority list in future and shall certainly recommend it to any of our friends/busdiness acquaintances as "top notch"

Stayed 3 nites in a 2-bedroom with my wife and adult daughter. The hotel was originally going to have to move us from room to room because we had added a night but they were very helpful in calling another visitor, explaining our predicament and they agreed to stay in a smaller room.

Neat, clean, spacious & reasonable.

This was my first time staying at a motor lodge and whoa it definitely made a good first impression for this type of accommodation, Chelsea Park is located within walking distance of nelson town centre and has ample parking. Check in was speedily done and a glass of wine followed our arrival into unit. Got good recommendations for eating in town (highly recommend cafe affair) and chargers + adaptors to charge our various 2/3 pin plugs.

Very well equipped kitchenette, in fact the best we had in all our travels in NZ (we saw a lot of self catering options). Everything you wanted was there to make beans on toast or 3 course gourmet dinner. And you get a little litre of milk for your cereal in morning. Nice touch.

Bathroom was clean, large and spacious. Proper shower in its own surround with glass doors - i hate showers in baths! Plentiful supply of good towels and proper salon style hairdryer availale.

Bed was sooo comfy and after trekking Queen Charlotte Track a god send! Cant say anything more, good quality linen and sound nights sleep! If you are in Nelson, dont look past here!

Delighful.
Compact (highly efficent use of a small space), comfortable and clean. What more do you want?...
Five minutes walk to town, supermarket, Saturday market etc. Very quiet - no road noise at all.
Would recommend it to friends and would stay there again.
Well done Chelsea Park.
