“We loved it & we'll be back!”
Reviewed 28 June 2011

The service was excellent. The staff were immaculately presented (including the cleaning staff, who were also friendly & happy!). Reception staff were very friendly & competent with an excellent knowledge of the area & activities available.
As a former international flight attendant who has stayed in hundreds of hotel rooms around the world I was thrilled to find that our room at Century Park was absolutely equal to (& in some cases superior to) any 5 star hotel I have stayed in previously. The linen was clean & crisp, the bathroom sparkling & the kitchen amenities excellent. We were unable to hear noise from adjoining rooms which is always a bonus.
The location is fantastic, a short, flat walk into town & bikes were available as well.
In short, definitely a great place to stay. Would love to come back again one day!

Room Tip: Less road noise in rooms further back

We were totally rapt to stay in such a wonderful and welcoming facility. Such was the furniture, the colour schemes, the space, the fittings... that we lacked for nothing. Brendan, Ross & Jan are the perfect hosts and they make you feel so important. They love having a good chat and even gave us their GPS to navigate this beautiful part of the world. Obviously no expense was spared in the construction of this magnificent complex and really you feel guilty (for a moment) to be surrounded by such luxury that you only sample in your stay. Hence I guess we should go again to enjoy it fully and we can't wait to.

The wow factor started from the curteous and friendly greeting at reception! The luxury began at the spacious entry into our suite, and there was nothing to disppoint from then on in. Every fixture and fitting was thoughtfully appointed, easy to find, and to use. Filtered water, on tap, fresh plunger coffee, a really comfy bed, well chosen bathroom facilities for showering or a soak in the spa. everything clean, clean, clean!

I look forward to staying here again, but next time for longer!

Room Tip: Some units are up (external) stairs

As a couple looking for a peaceful but central location to stay, Century Park was just the treat we had hoped to find for our child free weekend away. The room was immaculate and luxurious with everything you could possible need and. The thing that blew us away the most was the time Jan took to supply us with information about the things we were interested in doing and even made our dinner reservations. Just fantastic!

Rooms are quite small but very well designed so felt comfortable. Parking was right outside but you had to carry bags up stairs. Reasonably central with about a 10 minute walk to the restaurants/bars (although McDonalds was closer if that is what you are looking for!).

Stayed 2 nights at the end of April and were very impressed from the moment we stepped into our room. The motel is new and has virtually everything you need. Squeaky clean, the most modern kitchenette with dishwasher and free wireless internet which was a blessing. Would definitely stay at this motel again. The only thing against it is it is not within walking distance of restaurants. Heather

Thanks for coming to spend time with us at Century Park Motor Lodge, we're glad that you enjoyed your stay with us.
You mentioned about our Motel not being within walking distance of restaurants, perhaps you didn’t notice the Miyazu & Oceano Restaurants - two of Nelson’s top Restaurants and only 250 metres away, which many of our guests walk to.
Look forward to having you back to stay with us sometime soon.
