My husband and I spent one night here before we started the Abel Tasman trail over 4 days. We were warmly welcomed and walked to our room and informed about several tourist attractions to view. Best customer service we experienced in long time. The room is spacious with spa bath and bed very comfortable. Can recommend this motel any time

We were only here for 1 night but the host is extremely helpful with things to do and places to see. Room was really good, great comfy bed and up to date amenities. Can’t go wrong here, I would definitely recommend and come back again.

Fantastic accommodation with friendly, helpful hosts. Great location close to town and supermarket. Clean, tidy and the beds so very comfortable. Everything you need there, even a Nespresso. Lots of storage. This is the best place.

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.

There was one glitch in that arriving back one evening we found the room hadn't been serviced. Max did all the right things and went beyond expectation putting it right and delighted us by giving us extra fudge pieces and coffee capsules plus 2 small bottles of wine. He showed how a great host can keep up quality standards even when faced with a mistake.

We would highly recommend Palazzo as a great place to stay in Nelson with its convenient location and excellent service.

Note: Tripadvisor asks questions about covid actions; this area of NZ was not under strict lockdown requiring face masks, but prudent cleaning and contact tracing was in force.
