I occasionally need to come to Nelson to complete block course study and I will always choose to stay here. Jan and Ross are lovely friendly hosts that make you feel very welcome. Century Park Motor Lodge is in a great location and is just a nice 10 min walk to the centre of town. The rooms are lovely and...

Really friendly and helpful hosts, even came looking for me when I was late back to get my taxi to airport - how good is that? Impeccable room presentation. Easy stroll to town centre. Would definitely stay again.

Hi Diane, it was great having you stay with us recently, many thanks for coming to spend time with us at Century Park. We're glad that you made it to the airport in time :-) It is an expensive business if you don't get there in time. Kind regards Ross & Jan

We've stayed at quite a few places in Nelson City over the years, none of which we've reviewed on TA because we were always a bit under-whelmed. Now we wish we'd tried Century Park earlier as we would have slept better and enjoyed much more value for money! Jan and Ross were very friendly and helpful in sorting out a...

We had a really lovely stay! The rooms were comfortable, clean and the fireplace added a nice touch. Also the information we got from the owners about the local area was really helpful and Nelson is a cute little town.

TopMotel, Owner at Century Park Motor Lodge, responded to this review

Yes Nelson is a cute little City, a bit sleepy compared to the huge country you come from, but there are so many wonderful things to do in the incredible area. Kind regards Ross & Jan

Super comfortable, attractive suite with well-appointed kithenette. The whole place was in tip top shape. Easy walking to the charming downtown area, as well as a good supermarket so we could self-cater breakfasts and some dinners. We especially appreciated the welcoming and helpful owners on site. Couldn't ask for more for our 5 night visit to Nelson area and its...

Just a 3 minute walk from my conference hotel this little gem was just want I wanted. The rooms were clean and spacious with the added bonus of a spa bath and a full kitchen. Jan was great to deal with and full of helpful information, she recommended some great walks and restaurants to try and squeeze in between the...

Hi Louise, what a bundle of energy you are! It was incredible to see you running and biking every spare moment you got from being at the conference. How did you go with the marathon? We bet you did really well in it. :-) We hope that next time you come, we will be able to point you to some...

When Jan showed me my room I said 'wow its beautiful' and she said 'this is just our budget room' - so heaven knows how awesome the top-of-the-range rooms are! For so much less $$ than our conference hotel option I got a central location, immaculate room, great service and little lovely things - quality shampoo/conditioner/cleanser, a coffee plunger, yummy...

You were lots of fun to have staying with us at the time of the conference. :-) How about planning to spend a bit longer in the area so we can tell you about some of the amazing things that you can do in this beautiful part of New Zealand. Kind regards Ross & Jan

Reviewed 4 November 2013

The standard of these units is very high, and we were made extremely welcome. These people went way beyond what was required and/or necessary to make our stay pleasant. The location is very good, being a short walk to town and cafés etc. This is a place that I would definitely recommend to others.

Hi Karen, we're glad you found our rooms clean and comfortable. About the spa, we do have some quite large ones :-) When you come back next time, how about asking for a room with one of the larger spa's. Kind regards Ross & Jan
