R1 860+
Overview Reviews
A stay at Century Park Motor Lodge places you in the heart of Nelson, steps from Fairfield Park and 7 minutes by foot from Christ Church Cathedral. Featured amenities include luggage storage, laundry facilities, and a library. Free self parking is available onsite.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The room was bright, very clean and had a nice little balcony with table and chairs. It was well equipped and the bed was super comfortable. The couple who own Century Park were very helpful, friendly and accommodating and there is a laundry for guests to use. The location was excellent.
Cons: There wasn’t anything we didn’t like about this property.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly and helpful owners without being intrusive. Rick was great and gave us lots of tips of places to go. We stayed for 10 nights and went out and about most days. It was great to come home to a comfortable clean home away from home everyday. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Cheers and all the best for any future travels or endeavours
Cons: Nothing
9,6 Excellent
Pros: All facilities are new, everything is comfortable, staff are helpful and very nice.
9,0 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly staff, the whole package.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The motel looked to be brand new and spotless. I don't know how long it has been opened but the facilities and accoutrements were brand new. When we checked in we were given some cream for morning coffee that we placed in a large (motel sized) refrigerator. It was hot when arrived and the ductless heat pump air conditioner cooled the room down within a few minutes so that it was very comfortable during our stay. It was only a short walk to restaurant row (about 5 blocks) where we had a great dinner. The motel also had a washing machine which worked great as we had a weeks worth of dirty laundry to do.
Cons: Didn't notice they had a breakfast option (for a fee) until the morning we departed. We both missed that sign in the room which requested you inform them the night before. It didn't matter as we planned to get an early start and grab some food on the road so this wasn't a biggie as far as we were concerned.

Pros: We loved our welcome even though we were a little later than we expected. We also were upgraded to the Ambassador Suite which was a fabulous surprise as we’d only booked a one night stay.

Stacey was a great host and most helpful , providing us with information about where to eat and sites to see in the city. We would certainly recommend this exceptional accommodation.
Cons: Nothing except , We wish we’d booked for a longer stay!

10,0 Excellent
Pros: I stayed here for three nights with my two children in the garden studio. We had the most incredible stay! The studio is just beautiful! It has such a peaceful energy and so much love has been put into its’ creation and decoration. We were given gorgeous local chocolate on arrival, the drawers were stocked with organic teas and coffee, and the soaps etc are all eco friendly. The grounds are so beautifully planted with flowers and old established trees filled with native birds feasting on fruit and there is a pond with lotus flowers floating on the surface. It didn’t feel like a business, it was more like a retreat or like a home. The host is such a kind, caring woman and she couldn’t have done more to help during our stay. This place is an absolute gem! Treat yourself- you won’t regret it!
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Paulina has created a magical oasis out of her steeply sloping garden, with an imaginatively furnished split-level studio opening out onto a large deck overlooking a Japanese-inspired lily pond. Breakfast was a smorgasbord of lovely things, including home-baked bread. Perfect!

9,0 Excellent
Cons: No oven. Noisy from airport
7,9 Good
Pros: Chanui teabags, plenty of hot water, good parking, top quality drapes, comfortable bed.
Cons: Our room had a king size bed “plonked” in the middle of what is effectively the lounge area, thus turning a unit with a seperate bedroom into a four person unit. All this does, is cram the living area up so much that there is little room to move around the table/ kitchen sink area. I guess this is called “ maximisation “ of the unit, but did not appeal to us. Strangely, the single control water taps had “hot” to the left and “cold” to the right. Usually, “cold “ is to the left. Perhaps the plumber didn’t know his left from his right. Ha ha. Just little things, but when we are paying good dollars, we expect better.
8,0 Excellent
Pros: Very clean
Cons: Air plane noise
6,0 Good
Cons: Floor in the kitchen/bathroom hadn’t been cleaned (mooed) in a long time. They were black and sticky. It’s not until you have children and pick them up off the ground and notice they are black that you start to take notice of how clean floors are. Other than that was relatively clean.

8,0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was finished with modern decor and was very clean. The view from the room was nice, and the room had a spacious balcony overlooking the river.
Cons: The restaurant closed too early. There is no elevator so access to the second floor was difficult for those with mobility challenges.
5,0 Okay
Cons: The location of the room was very poor. Beside reception and the car park

3,0 Mediocre
Cons: Booked here due to restaurant and bar, as were to catch up with some friends - but closed for a private function! Very disappointed. As staying 2 nights got a room with view of river - DOES Not live up to pictures as it is tidal, spent a lot of time looking at slimy rocks and a small creek. Breakfast would have been better value to eat off menu than the $29 prepay
3,0 Mediocre
Cons: Photos online showed beautiful waterfront...there was essentially no water..just rocks. Rooms too small, hangers in closet were flimsy and clothes kept falling off, blow dryer only works if you hold the button down the whole time which is nearly impossible to do. Lastly, they limit use of washing machine (they only have one for guests to use) from 8 am to 9 pm and if you are booking tours all day and grab dinner after, there is essentially no time to get your laundry done unless you do it in shifts which means you leave wet clothes unattended until you can later get to the dryer...that would be rude to other guests.
1,0 Poor
Pros: Nothing.
Cons: They asked us to pay wrong bill which was used by unknown guests.
