Hotel's Favourite
We spent five nights at the Palazzo. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. Our room was more than adequate and had everything we needed. The shower was also well pressured. Unlike other motels we’ve stayed in, our room was very well provisioned in terms of pots and pans and cutlery. Also, top quality whiteware and oven didn’t go unnoticed. Other reviews have commented on road noise at night; we didn’t experience this in our first floor room. We will definitely stay here again.

A very nice motel with all the stuff you would expect. The management were very helpful and pleasant to deal with. It's a fairly short walk from the middle of town. All in all a good place to stay. I would recommend getting an upstairs room so you won't have noise from the plumbing.

We stayed 2 different nights here in April 2021. First night was in the Presidential Suite, which is huge! 2nd night was in an upstairs King room, still very spacious. Rooms are well appointed with excellent amenities for cooking and lovely toiletries in the bathrooms. We had rooms with jetted spa baths, which are large enough for 2 people. Beds very comfortable. Front desk were welcoming and extremely helpful, pointing out places of interest, potential walking tracks and supplied a useful local map. Location is on main road, but only 5 mins walk to centre of town and Nelson Market. Would definitely stay again
