“Amazing place, PERFECT!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2009

This place has it all. The rooms are extremely big, modern with attention to detail. The owners are so accomdating and friendly, almost unbelievably so. They offer tips suggestions and even have recommendations to other places to stay in other cities. There a reason this place is #1 on Tripadvisor for Nelson, a must stay. Close to the city, it's walking distance about a 5-10 min walk.

I enjoyed my stay here very much. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The room was extremely comfortable, spotlessly clean and with nice towels! Very good amenities and very handy to the centre of the city of Nelson.
I will definitely come back.

It was the 1st time I stayed in Nelson. Found the staff to be extremely helpful and friendly. They couln't do enough to help us. They even had a taxi waiting for us when we were ready to leave. The rooms are beautifully decorated, very clean and warm, as we were viviting in winter. The food the delicious and well presented. I have recommended it to our work place to be regular accommodation for future staff. It was centrally situated so that you can walk ino to town and to the markets. Ideal location. We enjoyed our stay and would stay there again.

My partner and I stayed at Palazzo in the weekend as it was our anniversary. We have been to many motels/ appartments over the years around the country, and have to say we do have high standards. Palazzo was just fantastic, I have to say its been the BEST place we have ever stayed at. This motel statisfied all of our needs, and expectations. We currently own our first home so dont get to travel as much, so this to us was an exceptional treat ( even though we are local - it felt like we were on holiday ) The room was very luxurious, clean, tidy, spacious and modern. We loved the room being so nice and warm and inviting. The bath was amazing, and we enjoyed every moment. We cant wait to return for our next romantic night in Nelson. A special thanks to Kiara & Bob for meeting all our needs, your both wonderful friendly hosts. Sarah.

Nelson was the last part of our holiday and we decided to pay a little bit extra to stay at the Palazzo - it was a truly wonderful place to stay, in every respect. We felt very welcome and any issue/question was solved by Kira. The room is extremely comfortable, has all the latest gadgets and the best bath ever! It was also a great location - within walking distance of some lovely cafes/restaurants. Highly recommended.

Very impressed by the service of both Kiara and Bob. Felt very welcomed and when we asked for a nice quiet room, we were offered the presidential suite and it didn't let us down. It was extremely clean, quiet and had everything we needed. And must mention the great value breakfast, totally recommend the fruit salad, delicious!
Thank you for a friendly and lovely stay. We will be back!

Although this was initially our second choice for accomodation in Nelson, I'm very glad we couldn't get our fisrt choice as the Palazzo was by far a better choice. The rooms are big by comparison and fully self contained, spotlessly clean and very tastefully decorated.
