Trip Advisor Ranked Chelsea Park Motor Lodge Nelson in Best of the Best Peoples Choice 2023 for Top Small motels in New Zealand.

A massive thank you to all the wonderful guests that have stayed with us  over the last two years. Thank you!! We are especially grateful to our staff, those past and present. They are always happy to chat with our guests, and they hold dear the same values of hospitality, manaakitanga that we try to bring to Chelsea Park.

You all have our gratitude.

The roadworks are progressing nicely. Now we have a two way road outside our motel. There is still a small section closed on Waimea road, however it's easy to see the detour signs if needed.

We are also proud to be sponsoring the local Cider Festival November 12. You can get your tickets HERE

Kia Ora our valued Guests,

Due to the ongoing Storm Water Upgrade Project on Rutherford Street and Waimea Road, there will unfortunately be disruption to our driveway entrance from the 5th August to approximately the 12th August.

As you can see there will be two carparks (blue) made available to our guests with red arrows displaying their entrance. I am hoping to have motel parking signs on display for these areas. There is also a walkway to Chelsea Park following the red arrow and help from Fulton Hogan staff when crossing the street using the Pedestrian Access to enter Chelsea Park.

We apologise for this disruption to you, our dear and valued guests, and thank you for your understanding.

Kindest regards,

Dean and Tomoko

We feel strongly about sustainabilty and our environment, and so we have now installed two EVNEX EV Chargers, which are free to use when staying with us. We have a Type1 and Type 2 charging lead available too!
