Myself and many family members stayed with Heidi & her beautiful family (3.7.2015). We all found the units and cabins very clean & management helpful in all ways possible. I informed Heidi that we shall continue to use Carmellia Court Taupo as our accommodation stay always as we visit Taupo many times. Thank you Heidi and everyone else for a... More

We have stayed at camellia before and have noticed that the new owners are painting and remodeling the rooms. This gives us a more comfortable stay at a great price. We found them to be very friendly and helpful during our stay.

After reading some of the reviews, I was a bit worried about the condition of the motel. But was pleasantly surprised at the friendly and helpful owners who made us very welcome. the room was clean and the linen fresh. I hope to stay again soon.

We parked our camper there for the night. Positives: It's cheap, unpowered ($25 for the camper). Walking distance to centre of Taupo Free, unlimited wifi Charging sockets in kitchen Hot showers Negatives: Toilets and showers filthy Kitchen was disgusting, everything was either dirty or dusty and every sink was stacked with dirty dishes. Both toilet block and kitchen was freezing.

I need a option to just put good. Not quite very good but way better than average. Or 3.5 out of 5 stars. For what u pay it's 5 stars. But it could do with some up keep. After a long day of runing around adrenaline seaking would be nice if the telly worked to chill out and watch it.... More

Booked through booking.com. I would be weary after this. old n run down amenities. situated in a lower socio-economic area. $85 better spent somewhere else. Toilet and showers common, but disgusting. Common kitchen, old. Avoid this place.

The bloke at the reception said "This isn't the Ritz" - I was expecting bad things, but after he'd shown me the room I wondered what the fuss was about. Clean room, with towels and bedding provided, clean toilets and a decent kitchen. Of course, some of the equipment is old, and the paintwork is peeling etc, but it's really... More

When I found this cabin accommodation at $30 per night I wondered if I might be making a big mistake booking it. But in a destination with as much to offer as Taupo, how much time does one spend in their room . As long as it's clean and comfortable right. This ticked those boxes being comfortable, modest and clean.... More

Stayed here for one night on my trip around NZ. Booked the place for its fantastic value, we paid $37 for a night in their backpackers cabin - a price that's just unheard of! Arrived and the owner was so so helpful, told us all of the local spots and the best places to go. Helped us with everything -... More
