We arrived after a day motorbiking, opened the door to a clean, stylish unit with a cosy outdoor patio bathed in the afternoon sun. I was so pleased to see it was pet friendly and met a couple of dog guests.
Will definitely use again and recommend to our friends.
Was very comfortable and quiet and great we could bring our dogs.
We travel a lot for work and have a list of the best motels in NZ and we have added this motel to the list; definitely be back and although we didn’t bring our dog we know now it’s dog friendly.
We stayed at the Chelsea park motel because it was pet friendly. We couldn’t have been happier with our accommodation. It was spacious, clean and well equipped. It’s in an ideal location within walking distance from the centre.
The hosts were very welcoming and helpful. Our dog liked it too. We would definitely stay here again.
Great central city location, just a few blocks from all shopping and restaurants. We chose this place because it is pet friendly and we like to travel with our 2 wee dogs. We found the manager, Justin, to be very helpful and friendly.
The room was fairly standard for a motel unit, with a small kitchenette which allowed the preparation of simple meals. Our room had a small semi-enclosed back yard area which was great for the dogs. Wifi, TV, and heaters all worked very well.
The room was clean, comfortable, and well-maintained. Overall we had a good stay here and would definitely recommend to other travellers looking for a good central city base in Nelson.
