“Great hospitality”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

We only stayed one night here en route to Picton but we wished we could have stayed longer. The room was beautifully furnished and very well equipped. The owners were welcoming and very helpful.. Even made our restaurant reservation for us. Although it is off a busy road it still feels relaxing. Nelson has plenty to offer. Don't miss Hopwood's restaurant and the Saturday market.

Had an amazing time here. When we got there, another couple had just arrived and the host spent about 5 minutes with them which we thought was a bit long. However when it got to our turn to check in we understood why she spent so much time with them - she explained and showed us all the things to do in Nelson, it was great! She then showed us to our room - which we got a free upgrade! It was tidy, clean and a perfect place for us to stay while we spent our first time in Nelson. Very friendly hosts. Well worth a stay.

I want to highly recommend the Palazzo Motor Lodge to fellow travellers. My daughter and I stayed for 3 nights last Labour weekend and always meant to say thank you for the superb service we received from the proprietors, everything from the amazing welcome (Kiara stayed up for our late arrival around 10.45pm and still accepted our late request for breakfast in the morning) to ordering taxis, very helpful local knowledge and storing our luggage on the last day before we had to go to the airport. Their hospitatlity even extended to a phone call 2 days before we arrived offering a room upgrade (if available on check-in) at no extra cost and also arranging to return a very expensive dress we realised we had left in the wardrobe on our return home. The rooms were spacious and immaculate and no request went unattended. I cannot fault this motel at all and want to find an excuse to visit Nelson again soon!

Room Tip: Even though it was on a fairly busy road, it seemed quiet enough in the rooms. If sleeping is a prob...

My wife and I stayed here 2 days. The owners were very helpful and the rooms were the best we had in New Zealand - very clean, modern, comfortable with a spacious bath.

Room Tip: Try and get a ground floor unit
