This is the 5th time we have stayed at Century Park Motor Lodge. Our room was large with great facilities. For us it was just a home away from home. We stayed for 6 nights. It is a short walk to to city where there is good shopping, excellent restaurants and a little further away there is the Suter Gallery...

Our rooms were modern, comfortable, very clean and well furnished. Would certainly return if we go back to Nelson. Our hostess was helpful with providing information. Not far from the cathedral, easy walk.

Visited for one night with wife and 2 young children in December. We stayed in the President's Suite. We had reserved 2 bedroom suite - not sure if this is the same or if this was an upgrade. We only stayed here as we had late flight arriving into Nelson and preferred to stay in Nelson rather than drive up...

Stayed here in Dec 2016. Way better than it looks from the outside! Nice grassy view from the window. Plenty of space. Quiet. Helpful directions given by the lobby person. A bit too far to walk to the restaurant row in town, otherwise this is a very good choice in Nelson.

Facilities at Century park were excellent! The place was clean and it had everything needed to make it a comfortable stay. Located just round the corner from the heart of Nelson meant exploring was very easy. The staff were also friendly and very helpful!

Stayed here for 2 nights early January. It's located on the southern side of the town centre, easy to find it and within 5 minute walking distance to the town centre restaurants. Lots of secure parking. The receptionist was lovely, even though we arrived late. Room was beautiful and extremely modern. Spotless clean. Wifi excellent. Jacuzzi bath in the bathroom....

Loved the modern look/feel of the place. The rooms came with everything you could need during a stay. The receptionist was extremely helpful and friendly- made check in and check out super smooth. The beds were among the most comfortable I've had in any other accommodation. And milk.. ok sounds like a small thing but we got a small bottle...

Felt new (only 4 or 5 years old). Modern and clean. Would definitely recommend but book well in advance and ask for a large room. Ours was small but still it was nice. Location is great. Quiet despite on main road so not a problem. One of the most modern Motels we have stayed in for a long time. Free...

We had a great 2 bedroom suite. Jackie the owner was terrific, and we really enjoyed dealing with her assistant "Queenie the cat". The suite had all the deluxe features that you would expect. It is located close the grocery stores and many restaurants.

We travelled with an elderly disabled relative and were delighted with our experience here.

All requests were promptly attended to and we felt relaxed and comfortable throughout our stay of 3 days. The units are double glazed so very...
