“Nelson's Number 1!”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

What a fabulous 'home away from home'. From the warm friendly welcome we received on arrival; the 'nothing is too much trouble' hospitality during our stay to the moment we had to leave, Jan and Ross were the perfect hosts in a truly fabulous motel. Our room was spacious, beautifully furnished and a lovely place to relax at the end of the day. The kitchen area was practical and well fitted out while the bathroom had everything needed plus a spa to indulge in. The location is a bonus too being a short walk into town. An unexpected extra night due to bad weather (REALLY bad weather that closed the airport) and what could have been a painful experience turned into a lovely bonus thanks to Jan and Ross. Not only did they welcome us back to the same room we'd had previously but also went the extra mile - picking us up from the airport and making sure we were comfortable for the night. Very much appreciated.

Room Tip: Great location, beautiful accommodation and simply fabulous hospitality. A definite 'must stay...

Fantastic, how a business should be run! Super helpful and lovely service, fantastic room and amazing vibe. Made Nelson our favorite part of our holiday to receive such a warm and refreshing reception.
Very highly recommended!

I arrived in Nelson with very little notice due to a family emergency. Jan the owner, drove me to the hospital, the pharmacy and some shopping. The one bedroom plus living room and kitchen apartment had everything I need for my stay that lasted one week. The bathroom amenities were lovely and contained all the essentials. They supplied teas, coffee and cookies each day. The kitchen had everything necessary for cooking, including pots, pans and dishes. There was also a micro wave and dishwasher. The Motor Lodge is close enough to the center of Nelson to allow walking to resturants and other shops. If you are going to Nelson this is the place to stay.

My Wife and I stayed two nights recently. We found it a great location within easy walking distance to restaurants and shops. Although on a very busy road our unit was quiet and it did make travel easy. Our only complaint was the small size of the studio unit but then we were only in it to sleep.

Century Park Motor Lodge offered us a warm, private and comfortable stay. Located within walking distance of the city centre allowed us easy access to the main attractions of Nelson, including the Saturday market and great eating places.
The staff were welcoming, helpful and extremely accommodating, providing information and suggestions which would enhance our stay.
The room was warm and comfortable,with a balcony where we could sit in the sun. We would like to come back for another stay.

Room Tip: The deluxe double spa room was great.

The Century Park motel is a bit outsideof the city centre, but still in reasonable walking distance to the main streets.
Friendly service, comfortable rooms and good beds.
And cleverly built to achieve a quiet situation.
