It's time to break out the party hats and cake as the award-winning Nelson accommodation provider Century Park Motor Lodge celebrates its second anniversary.
This second anniversary celebrates the day when the current owner-operators Rick and Stacie Warren took over the business in August 2019.
"We were looking for a challenge, and we know the hospitality industry, we wanted to commit to a business while our son started intermediate school," comments Century Park Motor Lodge owner-operator Stacie Warren.
No strangers to the industry, Rick and Stacie brought over 20 years of experience in the hospitality industry with them and have seen the motel grow from strength to strength over the last two years. "We really don't have a favourite moment. Some days it's just looking back on all the changes and improvements and feeling very proud," says Stacie.
"We have lived in Nelson since 2014. This is the longest we have ever lived anywhere, and we love the climate, the beautiful city, the size of the town. After living in lots of places, Nelson certainly is one of the best," adds Stacie.
It's an exciting time for the entire team at Century Park Motor Lodge; not only are they celebrating their second anniversary, but they are also a finalist for Best Motel in the Hospitality Awards for Excellence!
