Stayed here for one night last night; we had room 204 which is a small but perfectly formed room. It has a well equipped kitchenette and a shower over a spa bath.

We stayed two nights at the Century Park while on a road trip around New Zealand. It was very comfortable and convenient for Nelson. Of particular note was that the Aussie girl who checked us in (sorry, I cannot remember your name) was particularly helpful in seeking out information and giving advice about Nelson and especially our visit to the...

We stayed here for 4 nights end of Oct. Very very clean, and facilities were all very new and modern. The owners have paid a lot of attention to detail, including the best blackout curtains, a water filter, good reading lights, sky TV and nice brands of tea and coffee topped up daily. These little things made our stay very... More

This was just lovely from the fire to the beds! Great fire in the lounge for the chilly evening. The bath was good, the towels were nice. Kitchen was well equipped but didn't have a cooker. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Choose this place based on previous reviews and the fact it is very close to town and we weren't disappointed. Very friendly staff and a painless check in. Unit was well appointed with a great spa bath / shower. Easy walking distance to town on a surprisingly warm evening. Would definitely stay here again
