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.

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.

Near downtown Nelson this Motor Lodge was one of the best we encountered on our trip. The Jacuzzi tub was relaxing and the room was nicely equipped. However the best part of this hotel is the staff. So very helpful even to the point of volunteering to pick up something for me in town. Good advice. While in Nelson don't...

We stayed in the beautiful Nelson area for a week with our three children. We rented the 2-bedroom suite. The motel is fantastic. The rooms are modern, clean and quiet.

Lovely hotel walking distance to most sites. Nicely appointed. Spacious rooms. Kitchenette with everything you need. But best of all are the lovely owners. Jan helped us book a reservation to Wellington by plane when the ferry was down. She gave us great tips on restaurants. They made us feel so comfortable. I would not stay any other place in...

Beautiful 5 Star rooms with everything you could possibly need. Plus easy walking distance to good restaurants and the Nelson Market. And Kiwis are known for their hospitality but Jan went above and beyond. I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Nelson.

Having never been to Nelson, Century Motor lodge suited us for everything we wanted to do. From the moment we arrived we were greeted with exceptional service at the front desk, our room was impeccably clean and the location was within walking distance to the town centre. Would definitely recommend staying here.
