Reviewed 18 November 2013

Super comfortable, attractive suite with well-appointed kithenette. The whole place was in tip top shape. Easy walking to the charming downtown area, as well as a good supermarket so we could self-cater breakfasts and some dinners. We especially appreciated the welcoming and helpful owners on site. Couldn't ask for more for our 5 night visit to Nelson area and its...

Just a 3 minute walk from my conference hotel this little gem was just want I wanted. The rooms were clean and spacious with the added bonus of a spa bath and a full kitchen. Jan was great to deal with and full of helpful information, she recommended some great walks and restaurants to try and squeeze in between the...

Hi Louise, what a bundle of energy you are! It was incredible to see you running and biking every spare moment you got from being at the conference. How did you go with the marathon? We bet you did really well in it. :-) We hope that next time you come, we will be able to point you to some...

When Jan showed me my room I said 'wow its beautiful' and she said 'this is just our budget room' - so heaven knows how awesome the top-of-the-range rooms are! For so much less $$ than our conference hotel option I got a central location, immaculate room, great service and little lovely things - quality shampoo/conditioner/cleanser, a coffee plunger, yummy...

You were lots of fun to have staying with us at the time of the conference. :-) How about planning to spend a bit longer in the area so we can tell you about some of the amazing things that you can do in this beautiful part of New Zealand. Kind regards Ross & Jan

The standard of these units is very high, and we were made extremely welcome. These people went way beyond what was required and/or necessary to make our stay pleasant. The location is very good, being a short walk to town and cafés etc. This is a place that I would definitely recommend to others.

Easy convenient location! Great and friendly service! Very clean and comfortable room! It has everything it was needed. Tried out the spa - although it was a little small, it was a lovely experience. Will definitely come back for my next visit :)

Hi Karen, we're glad you found our rooms clean and comfortable. About the spa, we do have some quite large ones :-) When you come back next time, how about asking for a room with one of the larger spa's. Kind regards Ross & Jan

Brisbane, Australia
Reviewed 28 October 2013

The standard here is very high and maintained through stringent regulations, which is fine, but it doesn’t necessarily invite a relaxing atmosphere. We were delayed getting there which seemed to annoy the owners somewhat, and unlike other reviewers we did not find them overwhelmingly welcoming. However, they were helpful and obliging when necessary, despite our initial non-welcome. The room was...

The reviews are accurate for this hotel. As all of the previous commentators have stated, the rooms are immaculate and modern, the owners are exceptionally helpful and the location is great. We have twin toddlers and had requested 2 porta-cots. These were set up ready for use, and we were also pleasantly surprised to have 2 high chairs waiting for...

What incredibly organised people you are! Not too many people attempt to travel with one baby, but travelling with toddler twins - you really deserve gold medals :-) Many thanks for the incredible way you left your rooms, it sure is appreciated.

Immaculate in every way, Century Park was a lovely, relaxing, and comfortable break after driving from Christchurch. The one bedroom suite was very well appointed and spotlessly clean. The owners are welcoming and helpful, yet allow you to relax and have your own space. It's just a short walk from Century Park to the main restaurants, cafes, and shopping on...
