We stayed two nights split by a three day walk in the Abel Tasman National Park.
We thought that the lodge was very well equipped in terms of the kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms and living area and Paul appreciated the Sky TV for the sports.
It is 10 minutes to town with a great selection of bars and restaurants.
Dean and Tomoko were most welcoming and clearly customer care is very important to them.
Thanks for the great stay.

So lovely to have our dog welcomed too. This is the nicest motel we've stayed in. So close to town and spotlessly clean. The little courtyard attached to our unit was a bonus. The motel managers are very friendly and helpful. Parking is so easy too

This was our first visit to Nelson and we found Tomoko and Dean wonderful hosts to stay with at the Chelsea Park Motor Lodge. It is very easy to find if you are driving into Nelson and Tomoko made our check in very easy. The room is clean, bright and well appointed. This location is within easy walking distance to the main eating/shopping area and also to the Art Gallery and Botanical Garden. The room we had was spacious and comfortable and the kitchenette was perfect for us. There is a laundry room available too which was very helpful for us after a few days on the road. We would stay here again and we highly recommend it as your place to stay in Nelson NZ.

There is a lot to do in Nelson and great food and vine experiences. Hops galore and some great little breweries. We certainly hope you will return one day. Thanks again, Cucina58. Dean and Tomoko.
