Even though our ferry was cancelled & replaced with a later service, the staff were accommodating & left our rooms open for us to let ourselves in. Once in the room (we had the Presidential suite) I immediately wished we were staying longer. 2 bedroom with living area & kitchen, TVs & even a gas fireplace (much welcomed by me),...

Friendly, spotlessly clean, comfortable and well designed. We stayed here for a two nights and could not fault it! Don't go anywhere else! We walked to local restaurants, had spa baths, sat in the sun and borrowed the two free bikes for a 40km ride to Waimea restaurant and winery. A top weekend that we can highly recommend.

Stayed here for 2 nights on our trip around the South Island. Very good accommodation and facilities. The owners are lovely people. Please seriously consider if staying in Nelson. The location is relatively handy to everything.

We stayed two nights as a break away from our family - there was something wonderful about our room that felt luxurious and special. Everything we needed was there plus more. Our room was warm, everything was clean, the bed was amazingly comfortable, and it was so convenient to town - but really really quiet. I definitely recommend a stay...

A thoroughly enjoyable, friendly experience at the Century Park Motor Lodge. The location was great, room was clean and well serviced. Jan certainly went the extra mile in dropping us of at the airport. Highly recommended - we'll be back !!

I cannot fault the accommodation. Super friendly owner who went out of her way to help us. Spotless room, modern and well appointed. I left clothes there that we promptly returned to me within the week. My son and I had an awesome time.

I was in Nelson on business and stayed in a one bedroom apartment - one of the best motels I stayed in - modern, clean, free wi-fi, great location as it was a 2 min walk to where I was attending a conference, everything you need. The owners were lovely and extremely helpful. High recommended!
