“Lovely stay at Century Park”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

Super comfortable, attractive suite with well-appointed kithenette. The whole place was in tip top shape. Easy walking to the charming downtown area, as well as a good supermarket so we could self-cater breakfasts and some dinners. We especially appreciated the welcoming and helpful owners on site. Couldn't ask for more for our 5 night visit to Nelson area and its lovely attractions.

Just a 3 minute walk from my conference hotel this little gem was just want I wanted. The rooms were clean and spacious with the added bonus of a spa bath and a full kitchen. Jan was great to deal with and full of helpful information, she recommended some great walks and restaurants to try and squeeze in between the conferencing. It was also a great touch to be able take out the bikes to explore Nelson and the free wifi was handy for business. Overall a great stay and would definitely come back when in Nelson again.

Hi Louise, what a bundle of energy you are! It was incredible to see you running and biking every spare moment you got from being at the conference. How did you go with the marathon? We bet you did really well in it. :-) We hope that next time you come, we will be able to point you to some more of the amazing things that this area has to offer. Kind regards Ross & Jan

When Jan showed me my room I said 'wow its beautiful' and she said 'this is just our budget room' - so heaven knows how awesome the top-of-the-range rooms are! For so much less $$ than our conference hotel option I got a central location, immaculate room, great service and little lovely things - quality shampoo/conditioner/cleanser, a coffee plunger, yummy biccies, a full kitchen including utensils I don't even have at home. A little outside area AND FREE WIFI. Unbelievable to get free wifi - and a lot of it - so rare in motels in NZ. I raved about this place to all the other conference delegates - a perfect place to stay for business as its so well appointed, close to everything, safe for women on their own...

Room Tip: They are all FABULOUS. Maybe if you're upstairs the little balcony would be nice, but frankly m...

The standard of these units is very high, and we were made extremely welcome. These people went way beyond what was required and/or necessary to make our stay pleasant. The location is very good, being a short walk to town and cafés etc. This is a place that I would definitely recommend to others.

Easy convenient location! Great and friendly service! Very clean and comfortable room! It has everything it was needed. Tried out the spa - although it was a little small, it was a lovely experience. Will definitely come back for my next visit :)

Hi Karen, we're glad you found our rooms clean and comfortable. About the spa, we do have some quite large ones :-) When you come back next time, how about asking for a room with one of the larger spa's. Kind regards Ross & Jan

The standard here is very high and maintained through stringent regulations, which is fine, but it doesn’t necessarily invite a relaxing atmosphere. We were delayed getting there which seemed to annoy the owners somewhat, and unlike other reviewers we did not find them overwhelmingly welcoming. However, they were helpful and obliging when necessary, despite our initial non-welcome. The room was excellent and nothing to fault. Just a couple of minor annoyances such as the bathroom fan taking an inordinately long time to switch off, and the water pressure too weak to wash hair. The choice of artwork was interesting; it was certainly nice to wake up to Robert Redford and Paul Newman. We would recommend this place to anyone who enjoys perfection as we do!

Room Tip: None really. We had an upstairs room thinking this would be quieter, but the person underneath us wa...

Many thanks for coming to spend time with us at Century Park
About you arriving late, that definitely did not annoy us at all, we often get people arriving late and if they let us know ahead, we can arrange to leave a key for them to let themselves in.
Thank you for mentioning about the bathroom fan taking a long time to switch off, we didn't realise that there was a problem with it until you mentioned it in this review. We have since replaced the faulty fan and it is all going fine now.
We look forward to having you stay with us sometime in the future and we would love to be able to share with you some more of the amazing things that you can do in this incredible area. Regards Ross & Jan

The reviews are accurate for this hotel. As all of the previous commentators have stated, the rooms are immaculate and modern, the owners are exceptionally helpful and the location is great. We have twin toddlers and had requested 2 porta-cots. These were set up ready for use, and we were also pleasantly surprised to have 2 high chairs waiting for us as well. Thanks again for the warm hospitality. We'd recommend this Motor Inn to anyone!

Not too many people attempt to travel with one baby, but travelling with toddler twins - you really deserve gold medals :-) Many thanks for the incredible way you left your rooms, it sure is appreciated. We look forward to having the opportunity of having you stay with us again sometime in the future. Kind regards Ross & Jan
