The manager of Chelsea Park Motor Lodge offered great support with kindness and understanding. The location of the Lodge is close to the city center. It is very convenient to go to tourist attractions, buy things or even refuel the car.

Kia ora Daniel, thank you for your extra kind review. It was a pleasure to host you under the circumstances. Yes, Chelsea Park is nice and close to town and things to do and see. We do have bicycles that are free for our guests too! Petrol station is up the road, but our charging stations onsite are free for our guests to use. We hope you get the opportunity to return one day. Tomoko, Mia and Dean.

What a great find! This motor lodge run by Tomoko and Dean and their daughter is just beautiful. Well maintained, spacious, clean and they allow pets. The welcome was fantastic. We had our two wee boys who made themselves home in their home straight away and played with their daughter. Dean even offered us one of his home brews, what fantastic hosts!!! Keep up the great work! Thank you, we'll stay again when we come back to the South 😊

Kia ora AP_QTown. Thanks for the wonderful review. It was a shame you only had the one night with us. Definitely hope to see you again. Your lads were great for Mia to play around with. Its all about Manaakitanga. We certainly hope you have settled in up there. Tomoko, Mia and Dean.

Very accommodating hosts from check-in to check-out. Our studio was spotlessly clean and comfortable. Good location within walking distance to town. Thank you Dean for your hospitality - see you again sometime.
