    Was in Sunny Nelson (well almost) for only three nights, but the stay at Chelsea Park was great, nicely situated close to main centre. Rooms and service was without fault. Happy to return next time we are through.

    Great place to stay so close to town you can walk everywhere. My son loved the spa in the bathroom, it was pretty great I must say. They have the Cutest dog in the world 🌎that is enough for me to stay there. So helpful
