very friendly staff and helpful. the rooms are older and need the odd fix up here and there. We stayed two nights and would stay again if in the area. Its a few minutes drive from the waterfront but close to a take away and the river. The cleaner needs to pay a bit more attention. the rubbish was not... More

In auckland the faulty tower experience costs $75 per person with no bed to sleep on afterwards. just a three course meal. and any activity in taupo alone is over $50 for 2 minutes of fun. If you have a good sense of humour- this is the place to book in to enjoy the brighter side of life! great service-... More

We stayed for 3 night with another couple in a 2 bedroom cabin. Cabin was clean and tidy. The Staff are very friendly and helpfull. Quite Close to town. The complex has a good holiday feel about it. Am staying again in November. Excellent value for Taupo.

We didn't book in advance just needed a stop over for the night. Staff helpful and courteous, showed us a room to enable us to make decision before proceeding. Nice quiet room down the back, met our needs perfectly. We all got a great nights sleep. Personally I thought was great value for the price paid. Thanks for your hospitality,... More

I will never stay at this hotel ever again! I had booked x2 cabin rooms for 4 people. I'm a travel agent so I know all too well what I get myself into when I book cheap accommodation. However this hotel takes cheap to another level! It all started from when I checked in, when I told him my name... More

Had to travel through Taupo to Wellington. Didn't need a fancy place, Just clean and quiet. We found the waterfront motels all upmarket, and expensive, and a fair bit of traffic noise can be heard at times. Our family had a good rest, before hitting the road South. The motel is not the best in town, but who cares if... More

The Camellia Court was ok, you definitely get what you pay for. The Cabins are very run down and tired looking. The Hosts were helpful enough. The place is marketed very well but money could be well spent to upgrade the place.

Clean and tidy rooms at a reasonable price to meet our budget requirements. We have been coming to the Camelia Court for several years now and have always found the management friendly and excellent to deal with. We will continue to come back.
