Our experience at Century Park Motel was wonderful. We loved the modern facilities, the comfortable bed. The owners had warmed up the room for us as we arrived late, they were helpful and knowledgeable. They were friendly and we would recommend to others. We loved our time here,we could walk into the city to eat, go to the markets and...

Century Park Motel is well deserving of its excellent reviews and 5-star rating. We stayed in a Studio unit which was impeccably clean and well-appointed with everything we needed to make our stay perfect! Top quality linen, toasty warm room and lovely comfy bed. So convenient to the city centre, with restaurants and Saturday market, all within an easy 5...

A great place for a stay, friendly helpful staff, incredibly well appointed (loved the spa bath), well heated and centrally located. Off street parking, nice and secure. Can't get much better than this - would totally recommend you stay here on a trip to Nelson!

Based on previous reviews, my wife & I booked a two night stay at Century Park and were not in any way disappointed. It offers comfortable and stylish accommodation in a convenient location a short walk from the restaurants and attractions of Nelson city centre. If I have one minor gripe, the stylishness has perhaps been taken just a little...

Stayed for two nights. Elegant with good, modern facilities. Access unit we had requested was quite suitable for someone with walking disability. Very compact but warm and cosy. Walking distance to supermarket and restaurants. Good laundry facilities and parking outside unit. Very pleasant and helpful hosts - the recommendation to visit air museum in Blenheim was a bonus!

Stayed in King deluxe studio, warm room, comfortable & clean but this might sound silly but too much furniture in the room. We had two large suitcases and small bags, not much floor space when sharing with 4 chairs. Bathroom great but would agree with others, no where to put your items. Walking distance to main retail area, thus good...

Stayed here for one night after seeing reviews on Tripadvisor. Just as everyone describes, great rooms, very tidy and new looking, nice bathroom and very comfortable beds. 5 minute walk into town so great location but still quiet. Thoroughly recommended!

We stayed here for 3 nights. Good room and excellent location. A couple of silly things that were slightly annoying though. One being nowhere to put your toothbrushes in the bathroom, the hairdryer which you had to hold to button down to keep going, and lastly the mirror that constantly fogged up on the back of the door in the...

Many thanks for leaving your room so beautifully, it sure is appreciated and we hope you enjoyed your trip up to Nelson. About the hairdryer - having to hold down the button when you are drying your hair is frustrating, but a recent fire safety requirement. What a pity you didn't use the large mirror in the bathroom, it has...
