We booked through WotIf and got the deal of the century. Even though we booked through WotIf we were upgraded free to a spa room and asked if we were happy being on the second floor as we are from Christchurch (earthquakes). The service was perfect, the rooms were spotless and the location was a short walk to the city.... More

It was our 25th wedding anniversary and we decided to spend a long weekend in Nelson. Am so glad we picked the Palazzo to stay at. Kiera was a great help in making the booking and making sure it was a surprise trip for my man. She and husband and staff all made us very welcome and feel very special... More

As the title suggests, a lovely spot really close to Nelson City Centre. Modern, affordable and spacious. The manager Kiara couldn't have been more helpful.

I do a lot of travelling in the South Island and I am happy to stay that this is the best motel in the South Island. They have paid great attention to detail and it feels luxurious while still being 'business affordable'. Very friendly and professional staff and they have even chucked in the odd upgrade. The decor is second... More

Fantastic friendly owners who will go the extra mile to help. Units are excellent value for money and have every amenity available. Very short walk to multiple types of restaurants and shopping. Downstairs units also have a very private patio area if you are a smoker with outdoor furniture that is very comfortable. I would have liked a bath but... More

We enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Palazzo Motor Lodge. We were initially booked into a studio at the front but being country folk, the road noise was a little off putting.( The Italian Rugby Team arrived in town and so the extra influx of cars didn't help). And so with no drama at all, we were moved to... More

Having never stayed in a motel before - memories of "Pschyo"! - we had no intention of staying in one, BUT...... Palazzo Motor Lodge changed all that. It was absolutely beautiful in every respect, spacious and spotlessly clean. The quality of the furnishings, deep carpets & fully equipped kitchen could not be bettered - and all in the best possible... More

This was one of the best hotels that we stayed at on our trip around NZ! Not only was the room absolutely lovely - new decor, but with all the trimmings that they thought of, like a place in the room to sit your suitcases, closets to hand your coats and toiletries in the bathroom! There were also personal touches... More
