perfect home base for day trips to Abel Tasman and Queen Charlotte Drive and Sound.

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.

This is the best motel we have ever stayed in! Immaculate home away from home. Very thoughtful owners with lots of extras that made the stay so comfortable. Great to have a laundry to use. Would definitely book again!

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!

Room tip: Parking available and EV chargers.

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.
