Reviewed 31 December 2012

It's very helpful and flexible about our booking. When we want to change the total number of our booked nights the host still tries their best to help us out.

The room and the service are both so impressive.

Good location for town, short ride to the Airport, very accommodating owners. The units are generally well equipped, could definitely use some more storage space, and somewhere to sit and eat what you have just cooked in the mini kitchen, the spa bath is nice, but v noisy, generally it's all very good, but a bit too small. Think of it as a very well equipped mini, rather than a Bentley.

Great to have you spend time with us in our wonderful Nelson area.
We provide a variety of sizes of units for our guests which include smaller less expensive rooms up to the larger 1 or 2 bedroom suites.
All of our units have facilities to sit and eat, but some of our guests love sitting in the sun at the table and chairs on their balcony outside their rooms.
Perhaps when you come back to see us next time we could tempt you into staying in one of the gorgeous larger suites. :-)

Friendly welcome, good info about Nelson and restaurants.
Particularly clean rooms, well equipped, but not too big rooms.
Terrace and off street parking.
Location is a little less, located on a busy street, 10 minutes outside the center.
Great motel for a short stay. Certainly not cheap for what is offered.

Lovely stay! I highly recommend this accomodation. Close to town, walking distance to town. Their standards are very high, the rooms are clean and very quite. The beds are comfortable and rooms great size. Service friendly and helpful.

Booked the Standard Shower Studio Room 103 ground floor unit. Stayed for 2 nights.

Modern and new, very clean, feels luxurious, quiet, close to city centre. Free wifi was an added bonus.

Jan was very knowledgeable, helped us decide and book our day kayaking trip on the Abel Tasman.

Highly recommended and would stay here again.

Lovely stay here. Arrived on a Sunday, a bit later than expected and weren’t sure if any restaurants would still be open, but were assured that a couple would still be open, recommended to go to Fords, it was excellent. Room was clean and comfortable, plenty of space to move around. whatever you expectations are regarding a motor lodge, Century Park will exceed these.

Ford's Restaurant is top class isn't it, we are very fortunate to have a few really Top Restaurants in Nelson City. Thanks for coming to spend time with us at Century Park, we loved having you here. We hope that the rest of your stay in New Zealand went really well and we look forward to having you back in the Nelson district next time you come to NZ.

We stayed here after finishing the Abel Tasman coast path and in need of some serious R and R. We were not disappointed. The room was clean, comfortable and just a little bit more glam than your average motel complete with Breakfast at Tiffany's print on the walls. The spa bath was a godsend for my aching muscles too. They not mean here either and don't charge for things that you don't really need to charge for like internet in reception (for those of us who didn't lug a laptop 63km!-there's free wifi too) and a large selection of DVDs for all tastes. We snuggled down to Monty Python for some brain free laughs before a wonderful sleep. The staff are beyond lovely and ready with some great local tips for eating out and things to see. We had a carb laden feast at Lone Star in the evening and checked out the fab town market the next day; the motel is just a stone's throw from Nelson's bustling centre.
