Stayed here while visiting family, and was blown away by how lovely and modern the units are. Large kitchen area, plenty of lounge room space, and an amazing bathroom. The bed was comfy, and the room was kept lovely and warm... More

The staff were super helpful as we were arriving on a late evening flight, they made sure we had access to our room and knew where to park our hire car etc. There is a nice swimming pool and the...

Our flight got cancelled due to fog at Wellington airport so we needed to get last minute accomodation in Nelson. We had spent the two previous nights at another motel and our stay was simply awful. I had had friends stay at Palms Nelson and sing its praises, so I booked one of the last available rooms there. I had... More

Very clean, tidy and well looked after motel. Does what it says on the tin, handily located across the road from a supermarket and easy walking distance to town. They supplied not only a portacot but also summer and winter sheets and blankets for it - really very useful.

We stayed for 3 nights and found this motel to be perfect. Everything very clean and tidy and so close to town. There is a countdown across the road for shopping. Don't be concerned about any noise can't believe how quiet it was. The bed was very comfortable which is always so important. Would stay here again without a doubt,... More

I've stayed here a few times and thought it time I added my review. I come here 3-4 times a year for work and always choose The Palms. Rooms are spacious and beautifully appointed.
