I stayed here with my family a few weeks ago and we had two beautiful rooms upstairs. From the outside you dont really get an idea of the standard of accomodation that you get here. Absolutely beautiful! We could not have asked for more, and you can tell that a lot of effort has gone into the accomodation. The owners...

We had such a lovely stay at Palazzo Motor Lodge that we came back for an extra night before coming home. Fantastic location, walking distance to town centre. Very accomodating friendly hosts that can't do enough for you. Clean, spacious and comfortable apartment. Would recommend to all potential guests. The free bikes were great to explore gorgeous Nelson.

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....

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...

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.

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...
