We booked a one bedroom apartment for 2 nights before our Abel Tasman coastal walk and one night after. This accommodation was ideal as we did not have a car and so getting around town to buy last minute trekking items such as cooking gas was perfect. An additional surprise was the spa bath, which was very welcome after the 4 day trek. The staff were friendly and helpful and we were able to store luggage whilst out on trek. Spacious and clean.

Room Tip: Pay extra for the one bedroom apartment

I stayed at this motel for two nights. My original thought was to stay only one night but I found it to be so good I stayed a second night as well. The room was exceptionally clean the bed most comfortable the owner was most helpful in guiding me to where I needed to be the shops were close and within walking distance. There was a swimming pool close to the entrance off the road. All staff were most helpful to me well done to Cheyl and Robyn and all staff. Many thanks I will definitely stay again.

We arrived in Nelson without a reservation and the motels we had thought we might stay at in the city area were booked out. One kindly recommended we try the Palms Motel and I am pleased to say we found accommodation there and it was an absolutely lovely motel.

Spacious upstairs room with opening doors to balcony overlooking motel carpark area, comfortable bed, kitchen facilities, guest laundry, clothes line, swimming pool. A supermarket across the street, and a short walk to city centre restaurants. Reception staff were very helpful in recommending activities and organising a wine tour for us.

I think it was a better location than the motels we had originally looked at and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone staying in Nelson.
