The Palms was fine for our stay as a family of three. We stayed for two nights across the weekend and found the room beautifully clean and tidy with a kitchenette which made life with a toddler much easier. As usual, we requested a ground floor room - Big Mistake - as the noise from upstairs was unbearable in the...

Recently stayed here over night and found the premises clean and very comfortable. Reception were very helpful and nothing was a problem. It's central local was ideal for my business trip. Breakfast at the property was "nice/OK"... but if you're like me and really enjoy breakfast I'd suggest eating out. I personally would stay here again.

In the centre of Nelson. Clean, spacious, nice room. With a little swimmingpool. Easy to find, parking in front of your room. A supermarket nearby we find that very handy. You can walk to the restaurants.

Very good location for Marchfest (free shuttle was just metres away or could have been a half hour walk), easy walk into town and good restaurants, they rung me day before to confirm checking in and allowed a later check out which was awesome. Very clean room, bed a bit firm but that's purely personal, is on a busy intersection...
