“Enjoyable stay”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

We really enjoyed our stay with you and would definitely come back to stay again. Only spent the one night to visit the wearable arts and meet some friends but it worked out great. There was a bit of road noise but not much. Got a good nights sleep.

We had a wonderful time there, and will make it our first choice of accommodation next time we're in Nelson. My wife had been there twice before to accompany family admitted to Nelson hospital. We stayed overnight (me, wife and daughter) to attend a 21st birthday party. Lee and Barry were exceptional hosts - attentive to our needs. Clean and tidy, Wireless internet, great breakfast and an awesome spa bath made our stay a fabulous one! We're not party people so appreciated the quiet, relaxed atmosphere.

This is a great place to stay while in Nelson, handy, quiet, and great hosts. The rooms are very comfortable and well maintained. We would be very happy to stay again, just hope we can. There was a group of 7 attending a conference and the location was perfect.

It was a pleasure to host the Southlanders during the Nats conference - you were model guests! Sorry you didn't get the full benefit of our usual Nelson weather - maybe next time :)

This is a really nice place to stay. Our unit was great, it had a nice little seating area, a well equipped kitchenette, a clean and well appointed bathroom with a nice spa bath, and a separate bedroom, which was very comfortable, and nicely decorated. The whole place was generally great, the staff we spoke to were all very friendly, and it's an easy walk to the town centre.

All in all, highly recommended.

Choose to stay at the Chelsea Park mainly for the location of where it is as we were attending a conference and wanted something within walking distance. We are pleased we choose this motel as it was clean, comfortable and the location was perfect for us. Both Barry & Lee made us feel welcome from check-in to check-out and nothing was a problem for them. Would stay again and recommend Chelsea to anyone I know is travelling to Nelson.

It was great to have fellow moteliers stay with us during the recent Motel Assoc (MANZ) conference, and to receive positive feedback from them about how we are going. Nothing like a peer visit and review to keep you on your toes! Thanks for taking the time to give feedback, and for staying with us. Hopefully we can visit you in New Plymouth soon!

An easy walk to town and surrounds. Lovely clean spacious rooms. Great free Wifi. Friendly and welcoming hosts. Would stay again and would recommend to others. Although located on a main thoroughfare we were not bothered at all by road noise at night.

Neat tidy and very clean motel unit. Well appointed, comfortable and quiet. Hosts were great. Attended NZ Motel Assn (MANZ) conference at the Rutherford Hotel, which was a 5 min walk away.
Within walking distance to the city centre and all the good restaurants. Motel umbrellas a nice touch. We would stay there again.

Room Tip: Doesn't really matter. Rooms are double glazed, no outside noise at all.
