Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Lovely welcoming staff. The person who met us gave us some good information on local attractions. The apartment was nice and clean and well equipped. The bed was comfortable and the shower was good. It was within easy walking distance to town and restaurants. We were also able to park right outside our unit. Would definitely stay again

The room was perfect. It was modernly finished with a full kitchen including a dishwasher and even filtered water! Every little thing was taken care of, from the kitchen, bathroom and even a Netflix account on the smart tv. The room was clean and fresh and the small patio was a nice spot to sit outside. I wish everywhere we have stayed could be this nice.

The Century Park Motor Lodge was the perfect place for us to stay upon our arrival on the south island of NZ. Our room was spotless, quiet, fully functional including a well stocked kitchen and centrally located to walk to restaurants and the Saturday market. Stacie and her husband own the CPML and were so helpful to us as our luggage on Air NZ was delayed. Stacie jumped right in and help us get it delivered. Her husband helped us step up our rental for navigation purposes... a god send! It appears that there aren't many places to stay in Nelson. This facility had everything we needed and wanted. It was quite easy to drive to a hike in Able Tasman as well as a boat cruise in Picton. We highly recommend CPML to all fellow travelers. Tom L Boston, Ma. USA

Fantastic welcome when we arrived. This motel is very high spec and has a luxury hotel feel. The room was fabulous with every thing you could need (the bed was so comfy) for a stay and was spotlessly clean. This is by far the best place we have stayed at so far on South Island and will take some beating. Highly recommend staying!

We had a great stay at Century Park motor lodge. The location was perfect, just a short walk into the city. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable with ample amenities including milk in the fridge. Parking was free and readily available. The beds were comfy with soft sheets.

Quiet, meticulously-maintained motel just 5 minute walk to Nelson, NZ city centre. The rooms were well-furnished and we were not a lack for any amenity. Would definitely stay here again if we return to Nelson, NZ from the US. We stayed here for 4 nights.

In have been staying here often through out the year and can not fault the service or accommodation. One of the best I have ever stayed in and I have stayed in a few over the years travelling often for work commitments. Rooms are decorated beautifully and the beds are very comfortable. Tina the Manager is amazing nothing is a problem always greets you with a friendly smile and even offers to carry your bags for you. During winter she even de-iced my car. Now that is service for you. :) Eve Burrell
