The Palms was fine for our stay as a family of three. We stayed for two nights across the weekend and found the room beautifully clean and tidy with a kitchenette which made life with a toddler much easier.

As usual, we requested a ground floor room - Big Mistake - as the noise from upstairs was unbearable in the early hours of the morning, resulting in a wakeful, restless little one and a grumpy mummy ... leaving us seriously questioning staying for the second night. So if you are a light sleeper - request upstairs!

Being so close to the town centre was fantastic as everywhere was within walking distance - Nelson has some wonderful shopping and eateries- and despite being so close to traffic, the noise didn't last throughout the night.
The room was beautifully warm (and the nights were cold ... we woke to snow cover on the ranges) and the beds very comfortable.

A good, comfortable and affordable place to stay with all the Sky channels and good wifi!

Recently stayed here over night and found the premises clean and very comfortable. Reception were very helpful and nothing was a problem. It's central local was ideal for my business trip. Breakfast at the property was "nice/OK"... but if you're like me and really enjoy breakfast I'd suggest eating out. I personally would stay here again.

In the centre of Nelson. Clean, spacious, nice room. With a little swimmingpool. Easy to find, parking in front of your room. A supermarket nearby we find that very handy. You can walk to the restaurants.

We stayed for four nights over the Easter weekend. We were warmly greeted and very happy with our room. The room was a good size with quality fittings such as the marble (granite?) tables. There was a very comfortable bed with a pillow menu. The kitchenette was well appointed and bathroom was very nice with fantastic water pressure which meant awesome showers! Loved the toiletries that were provided.

Fantastic location, a short walk to town and just across the road to the supermarket. We were attending an event at the newly refurbished Trafalgar Centre (awesome) and it was a 2 minute walk from our motel to the centre.

One small gripe was the wifi, free which is great, but very annoying as it worked intermittently.

Palms provided a very thorough compendium, with good info and also menus and chargeback ability for several restaurants who deliver meals to your door.

We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this as a great place to stay.

Friendly staff greeted us after hours. Room was clean and quiet, beds were comfortable. There is a kitchenette with stove, microwave, refrigerator with milk for morning coffee and small appliances. Bathroom had speciality shampoo, conditioner and body lotion, towels warmed on heated towel racks. Seems like the owners pay special attention to the needs of their guests-nice. There were three of us with plenty of room. We were there only one night, but would certainly come back again.
