Friendly and welcoming. The room was immaculate and so nice and warm (which you can control for yourself), hot shower with excellent water pressure. Great black out drapes for those longs sleeps after longer flights. No noise from neighbouring rooms or car traffic from the road. Location is walkable to town and restaurants. Beds are supremely comfortable and even had electric blanket option.(It's winter right now). Kitchen facilities make it easy to cook your own stuff and have a quiet night in. Not a single complaint - for real!

Room tip: Upstairs is better on a sunny day. Downstairs better with heavy luggage. You choose.

Thank you for your wonderful comments. We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay with us and found everything to your liking. As you say it's an easy walk to the city and many great restaurants. Hopefully we will see you again if you are back in Nelson. Kind regards Jenny & Murray

I stay in Nelson on business every month for a couple of nights. I have tried quite a few motels around town however, once I stayed in the Palazzo I will not try anywhere else. From the time you get to reception to the time you leave you are made to feel at home. Murray and Jenny are excellent hosts and will provide you anything you need.

Once you get to your room which is immaculately presented you will notice that you have everything you need for a good stay. Very comfortable beds with good bedding. A personal heat pump in the room (very important in summer as most places in Nelson only offer heating and not a way to cool off the room) Nice size TV's, good soap amenities, coffee and tea, fully stocked kitchen and the best thing for someone on business and personal alike is your room comes with fiber broadband. Id say it would be the fastest internet for motels in Nelson.

I stay at the Palazzo once a month for work. The rooms are immaculate and extremely modern. The owners are super lovely and are great to deal with. The rooms with the lazy boys are my favourite! They have a Great range of room configurations to suit every need. I even had the luxury of staying in the presidential suit one visit. Let me tell you..... I didn't want to leave. Very very flash. Whether it be for buisness or pleasure i highly reccommend palazzo Motor lodge!!

Have just had another great stay at Palazzo. Always welcoming and helpful hosts providing comfortable facilities with a pleasant atmosphere. Handy to the town centre, easy to access, parking aplenty. Plenty of info easily available on places to eat, places to go.

The Palazzo is a great place to stay.Jenny and Murray are very friendly and helpful : they'll book restaurants, loan you bikes etc. The rooms are stylish, comfortable,spotless and spacious. Although it's near good restaurants, it has everything you need in terms of self-catering for breakfast etc, including a dishwasher, so you don't have to waste time washing and drying up ! We stayed here the last time we holidayed in New Zealand and recommend its style and comfort to anyone who wants to be in Nelson or
the Abel Tasman area. Greetings and thanks from Ruth and Nigel !

Hi Ruth & Nigel, thank you for your wonderful comments. We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay with us. As you say we are close to many of Nelsons top restaurants but we are pleased to be able to cater for those who prefer to stay in and cater for themselves. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in New Zealand. Kind regards Jenny & Murray
