“Small room but friendly atmosphere”
Reviewed 23 December 2013

This was a pleasant hotel. The owners are very friendly and helpful. We received a coupon for coffee at a very wonderful coffee shop. The accommodations are well appointed and the bathroom was roomy with a wonderful spa bath. There is also a very nice deck. My only problem was the room size. It was impossible to move comfortably with just two of us and our suitcases.

Hi James, glad you could spend some time with us in December. Sorry you found the room size a little small. The smaller rooms are purpose built for the Corporate Executives. We hope that if you make it back to this wonderful area, that you let us tempt you with one of the larger suites :-) Kind regards Ross & Jan

This is one of the nicest motels that we have stayed at. Very well constructed so as to be quiet. The room was nicely furnished and comfortable. Great location as it is close to downtown with everything within walking distance. Our hosts were friendly and helpful. there are laundry facilities on site for a small charge. Highly recommend.

We spent 3 nights here and found it an excellent place to stay. The staff were friendly and very helpful, our room was spacious and clean and it was a short walk to the centre of Nelson. The room was well appointed for self-catering with everything you needed on hand. Very comfortable bed as well.

We stayed one night and absolutely enjoyed it. The hosts were very friendly with local advice. The room was lovely, perfectly clean and a delight to stay in. Central location, great bed and furnishings, awesome spa pool, would recommend it for sure.

Room Tip: Spa pool! It's a must ;)

We stayed at the Century Park Motor Lodge and give ist 5 stars. The studio room was very comfortable and quiet. Receptionist very helpful. Great bed and amenities. Fantastic location. Excellent value. Easy to get to as we drove there from a southerly direction and heading north. There was a kitchenette with a dishwasher and a DVD player.We parked our higher car for free as well. It is a short walk to restaurants and shops.

Room Tip: Very comfortable, rooms all good.

Our 4 nights at the Century Park kicked off a spectacular visit to the South Island. Owners Jan & Ross were fabulously accommodating, emailing across the miles to ensure the best arrangements for 10 family members spanning three generations. Our (spotless!) suites suited us perfectly, and the beds and spa baths were beyond splendid after our rain-soaked day trips. Absolutely recommended, for anyone visiting Nelson!

Hi Jackie, what a wonderful bunch of people you were and lots of fun to have staying with us. Sorry we didn't manage to give you the sunshine that Nelson is so well known for, but perhaps next time you organise to stay in this wonderful area, we can turn the sunny weather on for you :-) Kind regards Ross & Jan
