The suite was more than adequate and the big jacuzzi tub a bonus. What made this a great stay was the service. Lee was there at 7am to help get us on our tour to Abel Tasman! We felt well cared for - and this at a motel.
There are other places in Nelson that are closer walking distance to the restaurants. Chelsea Park motor lodge is on a fairly busy street (though we had no noise issue at all) so be prepared to walk down a street of zooming cars before reaching the heart of town. Aside from this I would have given 5 stars!
