“Superb on all levels”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

Got to the lodge to be greeted by a really lovely Irish lady at reception. She was really helpful and really friendly which made you feel so welcome and happy. After explaining where things were around town and what there was to do she took me and my wife to our room. The lodge is really nicely laid out and looks stylish and modern. Our room was really modern looking with expensive furniture inside, lovely bathroom with a heated mirror so it doesn't steam up whilst showering, perfect for men to shave whilst waiting for their wifey to do their business :), lovely spa bath with heater incase you don't want to get out and the water gets cold. The bed was really comfortable and tv was good. Wish there was wifi though. Lovely little balcony to sit outside and enjoy the views too. The lodge is situated near to the town centre and just a 3 minute walk to the restaurants and shops. Me and my wife only stayed a short while but loved every minute of it, a perfect stay all round.

We hadn't pre-booked any accommodation and so were very happy to find the Palazzo as we were tired from a full days travelling. Kiara made us very welcome and showed us to our well appointed and lovingly decorated and absolutely spotless unit. Kiara gave us information on the local eateries and given, this lovely Lodge, is only a few minutes walk from the city centre it was perfect for us. We loved our accommodation so much we ended up booking an extra night. Kiara and Bob were perfect hosts and we would thoroughly recommend The Palazzo to anyone travelling to Nelson.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Our only regret is that we were there for such a short time! We wish we could have stayed longer! We chose this place because the rooms were clean, it's a short walk to town, the price was right, and there was plenty of room to park. Kiara and Bob were so accommodating and friendly! That, alone, always makes for a more memorable and enjoyable experience. This is a great home base for exploring the quaint town of Nelson! Enjoy!

From the minute we checked in until we left two nights later (only because they were fully booked), Kierra was there to answer all our questions and more. We felt very much at home and not only were we checked in early we were offered a choice of units. Having read so many positive reviews we were not surprised at all, they were spot on!

Room Tip: Although we stayed in one of the ground floor units, and had ne regrets I suspect the outlook from t...

We stayed at Palazzo in July and would highly recommend it to any visitors to Nelson. The location is perfect, really close to town and lots of lovely eateries, and Bob and Kiara really are the hosts with the most! Kiara was a fantastic help planning our trips and recommending places to eat and drink in Nelson, we felt really well looked after and nothing was too much trouble, which really gave Palazzo the edge over other accommodation we stayed in during our trip.

The room was gorgeous, tastefully decorated and it felt really cosy and comfortable. It was absolutely spotless and the breakfast was lovely. We had fry ups but there was a nice menu to choose from. They also have bicycles you can borrow which was a nice touch.

Loved everything about Palazzo and will definitely be staying again!

We stayed at the Palazzo Motor Lodge in Nelson for one night in August and were so impressed! The hosts Kiara and Bob are SO helpful and friendly and make you feel like nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are modern and impeccably clean and the location is perfect - about a 3 - 5 minute walk to the fabulous cafe's and restaurants in town...
We are pretty fussy about accommodation and do like our luxuries and I can honestly say that this place is perfect.
We would definitely recommend staying here and can't wait to come back!!
