It started when I checked in and was offered a beer, to when I sat down to watch tv and found they had Spark Sport so I could watch the football, to when I climbed into my clean comfy bed. Awesome experience.

Hotel's Favourite
This visit exceeded expectations. We have stayed in many , many motels & hotels round the world but the Palazzo was the best, Excellent welcome, shown unit, which was immaculately clean & well kitted out. Bathroom accessories were high class. When we wanted to stay another night, nothing was too much trouble, Robyn moved us to the Presidential suite as our one had been booked. Wow that was palatial.So comfortable. An extremely relaxing stay 10/10

This is an amazing motel - we have stayed here on a couple of occasions now and it our go-to place to stay when we're in Nelson. Superb hosts that are happy to recommend places to eat/drink/visit and really make you feel welcome. The various rooms we have stayed in are all very modern, great beds with lovely linen, clean, and great value for money.

We were on an organised cycle trip and had two days before our trip and a day on our return. We were able to leave our bikes in the private storeroom. We were provided with a hose and washing implements on our return to clean the bikes and again lock them in the storeroom. The location was great and the rooms were spotless. We left our cheese and biscuits on leaving the first time and low and behold they were back in the fridge of our new unit on our return. The ferry was delayed for 5 hours and we were allowed to leave our car in the motel car park for the morning to visit the local market and then provided with tourist information and personal recommendations on what to see on our way to Picton. A great place to stay and it was busy every night whilst other places had vacancies - enough said really. Thank you !
