Stayed for one week. This motel is very close to town. The room was clean and nice and the bed was very comfortable! The staff and the owner were kind and lovely people. Free wifi worked great too. Highly recommended!! We'd love to stay here again! Thank you so much for everything:)

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us we really appreciate it. We are pleased you found the room to your liking and the bed comfy. Our Wifi has improved greatly since we have been on fibre which is very pleasing for our guests. As you say we are very close to town which is another plus for our guests who don't have a vehicle with them. We hope to see you again if you are back in Nelson. Kind regards Jenny & Murry

We had the one bedroom apartment with spa bath, and I must say I was impressed with the size of the room, bathroom, large whirlpool bathtub considering the cost. Location also is very convenient, we were able to walk to nearby restaurants and convenience stores. We also were lucky to get a parking spot right in front of our room which was extremely convenient!……we could leave part of our luggage in the car and go get what was needed! I would choose Palazzo again and could recommend. We also enjoyed our terrace! Although it was situated against the wall facing the street, there wasn't much noise, Nelson is not such a busy place.

The main reason for liking this place is location. It's a short walk to town from the Palazzo and they have well laid out off-street parking. The units are quiet, clean and modern. I was given a small bottle of milk so could make a cup of tea straight away. The manager was a nice enough bloke and helpful.

The reason I don't give it top makes is because the spa bath did not work. I figured it had never been connected up. Details like that matter when advertising each room has a spa bath. The unit I was in had a kitchenette but but no frying pan, only sauce pans so you can boil an egg but not fry one.

Stayed for 4 nights for work. Huge one bedroom suite with kitchenette and even a kitchen bench! Room was very nice including the Spa bath. Rooms were aired daily which had a very welcoming feel to come home to after a long day. The Managers were just delightful and I was so glad to have stayed here over one of the bigger hotels. So recommend this stay and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. The free Wifi is great for overseas travelers! Thank you Robyn

Room Tip: comfy bed and pillows!

We stayed here just after Christmas last year for 1 night. My parents had the One Bedroom suite with Spa Bath whereas my partner and I had the standard studio.
Our Standard studio was still amazing and cosy. Had all the amenities we needed. My parents room was incredible, spacious, part views. Kitchenette was good, although didn't use it as we only stayed for the night. (just passing through Nelson).

Short walk to the town. Not far.

Would definitely stay here again and for longer. A very comfortable place to stay.
