Our party of three couples stayed in the three bedroom apartment for two nights before doing our Abel Tasman walk/kayak trip. The rooms were very clean and had everything we needed. Our room was ready for us even though we arrived a bit early and everyone was very friendly. Location was great - we walked to the waterfront, into town to the restaurants & to the Middle of NZ. Also close to New World and other shops. Definitely recommend staying here.

Hotel's Favorite
We spent five nights at the Palazzo. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. Our room was more than adequate and had everything we needed. The shower was also well pressured. Unlike other motels we’ve stayed in, our room was very well provisioned in terms of pots and pans and cutlery. Also, top quality whiteware and oven didn’t go unnoticed. Other reviews have commented on road noise at night; we didn’t experience this in our first floor room. We will definitely stay here again.

Fabulous motel in a great location, close to all amenities. Our room was spotlessly clean with lovely furnishings and plenty of storage. Bathroom was clean and modern with a spa bath, a definite luxury when travelling! Good kitchen area with everything you need. Hosts were friendly and helpful. Highly recommended!

Thanks for putting in such a great review. Our Motel was a little run down when we took it over, so some TLC was needed. So happy you could enjoy your stay with us, and have some fun in Sunny Nelson. Thanks again for taking the time out to write one.

We loved our Executive Suite at Palazzo, so spacious and was well equipped, comfy bed, nice linen etc. Location was fabulous, an easy walk to many delightful restaurants which was great after a day out exploring Golden Bay and other areas further a field. We would definitely stay at Palazzo again
