Reviewed 24 November 2009

Without doubt the best motel we have stayed at in New Zealand and this is our third trip to the country. Accommodation and service is first class. It was particularly nice to see the attention to detail in all aspects of the studio.
We would not hesitate to rcommend The Palazzo to fellow travellers. Hosts Kiara and Bob are very welcoming.

Staying at Palazzo can really make the difference in Nelson. This lodge is very nice, clean. modern and great location., I had a very nice room, good quality funiture good towels and new shower. Room is very quite and in only 5 minutes walk you are in the city center-
The owner of Palazzo will help you with all your desires and explain you the best things to do and see in Nelson Area.
I think Quality price is the best place you can find in the area and I am in NZ for my 3 time Hope to go back soon

We stayed for three nights in the Presidential Suite with our daughter and her baby. It was extremely comfortable and spacious, a thickly carpeted living room with enough space for a crawling baby and two nice bedrooms, and a large bathroom. Everything was spotless and luxurious, with microwave and dishwasher, both used and useful. The proprietors and the manager who was on duty this weekend were all charming, helpful and competent and there was a real atmosphere of friendliness among all the staff - you had the feel of a really well-run place with everyone working well together. It is very well situated for the centre of town, an easy walk with the pushchair to restaurants and sights, and parking close to the room so packing and unpacking the baby equipment (and the baby!) was easy. We were given helpful advice about local cafes and take-aways. Internet access was also useful.

Central position yet quiet, our own private apartment with all facilities including spa bath, the unit sparklingly cleaned each day, and beautifully appointed including comfy bed. Our car just outside the door, flowerbeds brim-full of spring pansies and more. But what made this place so outstanding was Kiara who combined friendly, discreet management and perfect concierge advice with service above the call of duty when we discovered one of our tyres had gone as flat as a pancake on our first of three nights. In fact it was she who discovered the tyre and then masterminded the repair of the tyre with absolutely no inconvenience, no charge and all within 20 minutes. When it turned out my laptop considered itself in a wireless shadow (internet a small extra daily charge) Kiara also spent around an hour trying to fix the problem and finally connected us via cable ethernet.
We almost booked a more expensive bed and breakfast but I am so pleased I decided to go with the Palazzo - we easily strolled to the delicious Hopgood's restaurant, Nelson cathedral, Jens Hansen (Lord of the Rings) jeweller and Nelson's wonderful Saturday markets, could have borrowed bikes at no charge if we had wanted and fell in love with Nelson.
Highest recommendations We will definitely be back!

Beautifully furnished rooms with lots of comforting touches including a fax machine for business and a music centre for when the day is finished. Everything is top drawer and Kiara is a great hostess who looks after her guests well. There are even bicycles on hand to use if the urge takes you. I look forward to my stays there.
