I stayed at the Chelsea Park with friends for the weekend, booking the 2 bedroom unit. Fast friendly emails from the staff let us know that the double bed could be split into 2 beds should that be required, and that a fold out bed could also be supplied. When we arrived we found the motel was very close to Trafalgar St (restaurants/shops/etc) a 5 minute easy walk away.
The accommodation was very, very good. Modern, quiet and smokefree, it was very clean and well appointment with good heating, clear TV reception and lots of information about Chelsea Park and Nelson in the room. It was quiet and the management were freely available to take inquiries and look after our bags before we departed. There are a lot of much bigger hotels claiming that they offer luxury accommodation - I didn't think there was much difference between Chelsea Park and the bigger hotels.
Hint for visitors - Nelson is provincial and runs on provincial hours - shops close after 3pm on Saturday and very few are open on Sunday, if you are a shopaholic then get your fix on Saturday (there is a market, ask the management) and leave the sightseeing for Sunday :) there is a glassblower below the cathderal that will let you blow your own glass ball for $40.
