Refreshingly different decor from your average motel. We stayed in a turret and the room was a good size. Clean, tidy and good customer service and facilities. Close to lots of restaurants and a short walk to town/tourist attractions.

Had 2 apartments booked for out stay in Jan 2016, both were clean, tidy, comfortable units. We had a large group over at night for a get together, easily held 16 of us. Basic kitchen but it did everything we needed. Bathroom was fine. Awesome location.Great bar across the road, lots of eateries in Merivale.

The facilities were clean and well maintained. We had a good nights sleep in the bed. The cooking facilities were minimal compared to other similar properties we stayed at during our trip, but what was available was functional clean and well maintained. We would stay in the property again.

We had such a lovely time. It was very clean, tidy. Kids loved the pool and enjoyed the BBQ area when there weren't many restaurants open on Christmas eve. Excellent customer service, very helpful staff.

Great apartment for our group of six. Clean and comfortable, spacious and well serviced with linen and bedding, except that dishes weren't cleaned daily as I expected. Friendly and extremely helpful staff. The themed accommodation lent a great ambience to Camelot motel. Lots of parking conveniently right outside apartment. A pleasant stay, close to city centre and within walking distance... More

We started and ended our 12 day NZ South Island tour at this hotel. The service was not really attentive at the reception. When we left our keys in the morning to go for a jog, the clerk there was inattentive and thought we wanted to check out and went on to cancel our wifi! A guest even opened my... More

We have stayed at this Lodge a few times over the years and enjoy the size of the rooms - we typically book a one bedroom apartment. It is very handily located for the city, restaurants on Victoria Road and parks and rooms are always well turned out. We typically stay in the back of the premise - it is... More

Spacious and good concept of two floors dividing dining and kitchen from bedroom. Very clean environment and friendly reception service. They make you feel welcome and excellent location. Must try the famous lamb shank which is just opposite the motel.

First of all one of the two rooms wasn't cleaned up when we first got there. TV nor remote control were working. One of the two chairs in the room was broken. Night was grazy thanks to the neighbours. To say something positive there were lots of beautiful roses in the hotel area.

This place had everything you need in a motel, it was just a bit shabby and tired. We arrived late at night having just flown in. There was nowhere within walking distance to get a hot meal and a beer. English is not the first language of this motel either.
