“Pampered Bliss”
Reviewed 31 July 2012

I was so looking forward to our third luxurious parenting holiday at Century Park Motor Lodge. We meandered the market and shops at our own pace, we didn't have to rush off to meet the kids needs. Its so nice to have uninterupted time together. Will cherish the pampered relaxed memories and look forward to our next stay.

The rooms are compact, modern and well thought out. A short walk into town where there are plenty of pubs and restaurants. Staff were very friendly and recommended all the best places to go. Would certainly recommend.

I recently stayed at the Century Park Motel for two nights and experienced a very comfortable and enjoyable break away. The Presidential suite was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean with modern furniture where I could relax in the lounge enjoying the ambiance of a open flame gas fire & flat screen TV or stereo to suit which made for a very pleasant evening. When I needed information on local amenities the owners not only explained options but provided me with a mini map showing directions. A spa bath with morning cup of plunger coffee was a great start to the morning! I would definitely recommend this motel to anyone visiting Nelson.

Over 45 years, we have visited 40-50 countries. The 'Century Park' Presidential Suite is the best accommodation we have enjoyed. In Bergen, Norway, our accommodation was arranged by a Government Agency, and we found we were booked in to the just vacated
USA Vice President's suite.
(If he got promotion, he would be better off in the Presidential Suite at Century Park Motor Lodge, Nelson, New Zealand!)
For us, back in Century Park, we carefully scrutinized the White Board 'Maintenance' list. "Remove mark on wall above bed", "Fix scratch (here & there)",
"Clean tiny spot on carpet", on and on --- amazing attention to small details! Keep it up. +

Simply the best motel we have stayed in so far during our stay in New Zealand.
Excellent facilities, extremely clean and friendly owners/staff. We could not fault it at all and would definitely recommend it. We were a party of 5 people and stayed in the Presidential Suite, which was spacious and had a lovely living room/ eating area.
Location is very good too and is walking distance from shops, restaurants and supermarket.
If we visit Nelson again, we will definitely be staying at this motel.

We stayed at Century Park Motel for 3 nights and thought it was fantastic with absolutely no complaints about it what-so-ever.
We were allocated the Presidential suite which had one double room and one twin room, a bathroom with a jacuzzi bath and a living room/ kitchen area. There was huge tv in the living room and a fire and two decent size TV's in the bedrooms. Every room was immaculate and there was good collection of good equipment and complimentary tea/ coffee/ biscuits etc.
The washing facilities were open till 8pm which is much better than other places where it shuts pretty early and you could buy powder for $6 and then have no further charge to use the washer and dryer.
The location was great as it was only a few minutes walk to the high street in one direction and a few minutes to the super market in the opposite direction.
The owners were really nice and helpful and we would recommend this place to anyone travelling to Nelson who isnt on a backpacker budget.

Rooms were relatively small, but had everything you need and were spotless and very well presented. The hosts were extremely friendly and helpful - booked Abel Tasman trip and restaurant for us and gave good solid advice.
The Lodge is in a great location - easy walk to the town centre and restaurants.
Nelson is a lovely town - our second visit and were just as impressed as on our first. Limitless opportunities for outdoor activities in the area, and the surrounding scenery is stunning.
Hopgoods was a great choice for a romantic Valentine's dinner, while the fish and chip shop down on the quay provided a very high quality alternative to be savoured on our last night sitting on the balcony with a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc.
