We had a great stay at Palazzo, so close to town and rooms very well appointed. I left some items in the wardrobe and Robyn very kindly couriered them back to me. When we checked in Robyn was very helpful and gave us lots of great restaurant ideas. Would definitely stay there again.

This was great place for our 7 night stay with quality amenities, even down to Maxwell Williams crockery, a microwave, cooktop, jug, toaster, coffee maker,small fridge and a Dishdrawer in the kitchen. As others have mentioned fresh milk is supplied regularly which doesn't usually happen at motels. The room we had was an Access Studio which wasn't large. It was tastefully finished and had a Queen bed with luxurious bedding, big screen TV and desk with two chairs for breakfast or working. Spacious bathroom with good quality amenties and ample towels with a heated towel rail to hang them on. Location is perfect being just around the corner from the Rutherford Hotel and only a few minutes walk to the Cathedral and the Bars and Restaurants at the top end of Trafalgar Street.

Palazzo Nelson do what should be normal in a motel but is exceptional to find elsewhere. My family and I have stayed there on a few occasions. Despite being from Nelson, its a warm and generous South Island welcome every time we come home. I just notice and really enjoy the difference. Front desk is a delightful and helpful wife and husband team who own the place, so what they say gets done. Rooms are immaculate. Design is minimal (no clutter and nonsense). Everything works. Really well. Fresh milk in a bottle, every day (remember when milk used to arrive in a bottle, at your letterbox?). Things are understated. Small touches are done well. Always with a light touch. Walking to town and it could rain – umbrella’s left out. Everywhere is a view. Leave back door open and

Palazzo is definitely my "go to" place to stay in Nelson. Second time in this fabulous Motel. From the booking process with Max through to checking in with Robyn it is one of the best experiences I have had across the board - even including hotels. Amenities are superb with the "little touches" that make staying away from home so enjoyable and rooms super clean. Location great - short walk to town. 100% recommend to anyone that is visiting Nelson or its surrounds. I'll be back!!!
