“Fantastic value for money”
Reviewed 4 January 2012

We stayed here in January 2012 and would thoroughly recommend it. The room was tastefully furnished, light and airy. The bathroom was quite new and very clean. The kitchenette had everything you could want, with complimentary milk, tea/coffee and cookies. My kids liked the wifi as well. The service was very friendly and helpful. Close to town too.

This is definatley a great find and I will be coming back for sure! Chelsea park is the kind of place I love to stay at as it is very apparent that the owners have carefully thought out every aspect of their motel complex with guests comfort etc in mind. From their friendly and helpful chats and suggestions of good restaurants close by, to the complimentary bikes, umbrellas and book swap, to the beautifully set up rooms with fantastic linens, wee sunny outdoor area, and massive spa bath to all the little extras like toiletries, chilled water jug in the fridge, current magazines and even glad wrap roll in the kitchen.
Was super close easy walking distance to town and our room slept four - two big beds, one in bedroom with tv and another in the lounge with still enough room to fit four comfortably with table and extra seating. Price was incredibly reasonable for four people - cannot recommend highly enough :) Thanks for a fantastic stay, will def be back

We stayed one night before walking Abel Tasman. Heather the proprietor gave us a warm welcome. On leaving for Abel Tasman Heather let us leave our luggage for our return to Motel in 3 days- that was 8 peoples luggage.On our return to our very well equiped comfortable room Heather could not have been more helpful nothing was to much she offered us her car, organised our night out, she delivered us to a retaurant, this motels service was A+. We highly recommend Chelsea Park, Nelson to anyone looking for top notch accommodation at reasonable rates.

We stayed at this motel in Dec 2011 when on holiday in New Zealand with our two children. The standard and service level of this motel was better than most 5 star hotels we have stayed at, globally. Mike and his wife are very gracious and helpful hosts. Quality of rooms, linens, appliances is impeccable, only topped by the very helpful hosts and high service. Highly recommend this hotel to other fellow travellers

Heather and Mike couldn't be more accommodating. Their rooms are really clean and beautifully decorated. I would recommend their place to everyone.
