Modern, comfy room. Nice decor. Excellent supplies of tea, coffee, biscuits and mints. Parking was good. Easy walk to Nelson shops and cafes. The room had everything we needed for the holiday. Good pressure in the shower. We don’t usually watch Sky but we even enjoyed that.

We loved our stay. The place is spotless, great modern facilities and nice touches around the place. Everything you could possibly need. Huge bonus for being dog friendly too. No trouble and we would definitely stay again.

I stayed here while in Nelson for business and after a long, tiring day it was a pleasure to check in at Chelsea Park. All the important things are there: friendly hosts, comfy bed, good shower, wifi, good heating, nice toiletries and plenty of tea and coffee etc. It is also a great location and not far from New World supermarket and a service station. I highly recommend this motel to business travellers and other travellers too.

Comfortable beds, friendly owners, great selection of organic tea and coffee (these little things matter). Everything spotlessly clean. We stayed five days and it was like a home away from home. Will stay again if we're in Nelson.

We really enjoyed our stay here as a family. We stayed in the two bedroom unit. We liked the spaciousness of the unit, there was also enough seating for us all, which we don't often find. A great location and really hepfull friendly hosts. We will definitely be staying here again for future trips to Nelson
