"Great Place"

Reviewed 1 August 2017

We had a work function to attend with our partners on the Friday night & we were booked into the Palazzo. Fabulous place. Very comfortable, clean & of very high standard. So very convenient to central Nelson that you can walk everywhere no problems. Jenny who was at Reception on check in was so lovely. A very friendly lady. We have stayed before, for another work function in Nelson & the Palazzo never fails to deliver in every way. Will always recommend Palazzo too if friends ask where to stay.

'm so glad we found the Palazzo. Our host was welcoming and the standard of accommodation is exemplary. My 12 year old granddaughter and I now have a new favourite place to stay in Nelson. Highly recommended.

“Nice hotel convenient to central Nelson”

Reviewed 22 January 2017

Julia at the front desk could not be more helpful with directions to the supermarket and local restaurants, showing us how the in room safe worked, etc. Rooms are mini suites with a very convenient kitchenette. Bath had large shower which was also a jacuzzi. Also lots of electrical outlets to charge multiple devices. Would stay here again if we ever get back to Nelson.

“Best motor lodge ever!”

Reviewed 30 December 2016

Warm welcome when we arrived. Rooms were large and clean. Pantry well stocked with tea and coffee. Nice Grohe fittings in bathrooms. Get a jacuzzi room by paying only $10 more a night! Good location, quiet and very safe! It feels like a 5 star hotel and not those dodgy motels.

“Excellent facilities, warm and friendly service”

Reviewed 23 December 2016

We stayed for two nights having been recommended this motel by a friend. From our first enquiry, which was answered promptly, to our final interaction (they rang me after we left because we'd left our phone charger behind) the service was spot on. Enquiries about places to eat and whether the Suter gallery upgrade had been completed (yes) were answered competently. A lovely comfy bed with crisp white sheets and nice soft pillows, excellent facilities for people with disabilities, yummy cooked breakfast; a French press with plunger coffee provided, a dish drawer; we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
