Our room was spacious, lovely and very clean, staff were friendly and very accommodating. Would diffently stay again and found it to be very central to go into Wellington on the Train. They were helpful with things to do in the area,

This motel was sufficient for our needs, although an extra bathroom in the 2 bedroom apartments would have been good. The hospitality was not great, but we only dealt with the hosts on check-in and check-out. We could not find an apartment motel for our extended family of 9 closer to Wellington city.

We take on board all constructive criticism and although some things are outside our control as lessees, (ie second bathroom), we do try to address any problem issues wherever possible. Unfortunately this reviewer has not been sufficiently specific to enable us to rectify or remedy any shortfalls. They expressed concern with "service" and scored us accordingly, however their only experience... More

Having read some of the other reviews I can fully understand that the comment is made the owners appear to be unfriendly or are "over it" as far as small talk or being friendly is concerned. I did feel it was "unlike" many places i had stayed at in NZ by not not being over welcoming. However i could not... More

We are disappointed this reviewer felt they were made to feel "less than welcome" at our establishment and for this we most sincerely apologise. We believe we offer a welcoming smile to all our guests and we normally take the lead from the guests as to whether "chit chat" or "small talk" will be welcome. With Lower Hutt being more... More

Not impressed at all with the hospitality received from this motel. Owners did not take pride in satisfying there customers & lacked manners. Went into our rooms more than once out of 'servicing' hours ( particularly in the evening when we were out for dinner) in which I do not understand what they service as our beds were hardly made...

This guest unfortunately showed very little respect for our units, our staff, and our policies. We were alerted to problems by our housemaids who were appalled at the condition of their unit, and in fairness to our staff, we made the decision to provide minimal servicing. Bed making is certainly standard in Services, however our staff are trained not to... More

We spent two nights at Camellia Court in late December during our visit to Wellington. Had some unpleasant experience during check in because of the confusion over the reservation which we're given a complimentary "lecture" on the hotel policy by the male host. We took two rooms the first night as the larger family was not available. The double bed... More

CamelliaCourt, Owner at Camellia Court Motel, responded to this review

We appreciate this guest's review, and can understand their frustration at check-in, and we were very sympathetic to their plight. However this was brought about by the guest failing to advise us of correct guest numbers when making the reservation, which ultimately meant the unit they booked could not accommodate their entire family (babies and children must be included in...

Camellia Court is a pleasant enough place for an overnight stay. It is very typical of NZ motels I remember as a kid - tiny bathroom, full stove. It is quite hard to find, being in a commercial street along with a number of other motels, and quite some distance from, well, anything really. After we found motels on the... More

Thanks for your review. I agree that we are not located in the city's "high" street, like most motels throughout the country, but that also means we are away from the heavy traffic noise. We are also well located for access to: the motorway (north and south); bars (3 minute walk); restaurants (30 second to 3 minute walk); Westfield (10-15... More

We stayed 4 nights, the motel is conveniently located close to the city center, railway station and motorway, no motorway noise. Unit had a full kitchen and a good wall heater for the cold nights. Very cozy and affordable. Highly recommended.

Loved staying here, it must have been the coldest night in Wellington ever, yet we had a great heater in the room, good electric blankets, on a very comfy bed !

We stayed one night in June 2013 - and were highly impressed. The unit was absolutely spotless. The shower excellent, comfortable pillows and bed, and all that is required in the kitchenette..... including a stove. The owners were pleasant to deal with.
