            Located in town centre, new modern motel, friendly staff

            enjoyed our stay at the palms motel, just a few minutes walk from the main shopping streets of nelson, also some of the main attractions. also very handy to major supermarket. the room was quite spacious, the motel was relatively new by motel standards and everything was modern and clean. a friendly receptionist assisted with information on how to get to the local attractions and restaurants nearby.

            We booked a 3 night stay here in a 1 bedroom apartment and enjoyed our stay. Great location within easy walking distance of everything and a supermarket on your door step which is useful for a self catering style apartment. Only saw the staff at check in and check out who was very pleasant. We had a bit of rain there and the motel had umbrellas available to use which we were very grateful for. Overall a nice experience in both Nelson and the Palm Motel.

            The Palms Motel”

            Excellent service, very accommodating

            The Palms Motel in Nelson was easy to find which I found a real benefit as I had only a vague idea of where exactly in Nelson's city centre it was located. I had to interrupt the hosts via the night bell following a drive from Christchurch and they made me feel that it was no trouble to them. The room in which I stayed was very comfortable. Thank you, Palms Motel.
