I am often working in Auckland and am in need of a place to stay and frequent the Camelot arms. I enjoy seeing a friendly face when checking in and the comfort of the rooms. As I am always doing business away from home the wifi connection in the rooms is very good and I have no complaints about the... More

Camelot Arms is really lovely motel. I am from Wellington, I visit Auckland last month and stayed at Camelot Arms for two nights, the room I stayed in is clean and modern. I especially enjoyed two Chinese paintings which are awesome and meaningful for me. The staff are very helpful and friendly.

How kind of you to review our motel. Thank you for your comments. The paintings in your room are copies of Qing (Ching) Dynasty garden paintings. In Summer we have Asian tourists stopping at our motel so we wanted something they would feel comfortable with. We also have copies Van Gogh, Monet etc for others. We have sky 50+ Channel... More

I stay regularly at many of the Asure Motels throughout the North Island and I look forward to my visits to Auckland because of the warm welcome I get from Michael and David at Asure Camelot Arms in Manukau. The motel is within walking distance from all the amenities at the Maunukau shopping centre. and services along the Great South... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to review our property. Thank you too for your room tip. Last year we replaced the motel’s endless supply gas hot water heater. It had served the motel faithfully for many years but finally gave up. We now have a new and reliable supply of virtually endless hot water for you to... More

I stayed at Camelot Arms two weeks ago with my partner. It has been a great experience. My room was a reasonable size with a king size bed and it was on the ground floor and also had an outdoor patio where we could sit. The interior design is very modern and stylish. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I... More

Exterior by Resene, interior by my Gran. Just completed a tour around the North Island, and have stayed in many motels across NZ. Was looking for a reliable name close to the airport for the next day. Didn't research, just turned up. Mistake. It has affected my respect for the whole Asure brand - won't make that mistake twice.

Thank you for your review. We’re very sorry that you didn’t enjoy your stay. Our compliments to your Gran, she obviously had impeccable taste. I wouldn’t put an elderly loved one down. I would point out that a prominent person from one of the main political parties stayed in that very room with his partner. He also wrote an in-room... More

Camelot Arms is in a great location, close enough to downtown Auckland attractions, but not right in the heart of the city, with nearby motorway access. We chose Camelot Arms primarily on price and location, and it was certainly good value for money. Our room was clean and comfortable, but was somewhat dated and in need of a refresh (e.g.... More

Thank you for your review. I’m really glad that you and your workmates were able to set aside your worries and focus on your work in New Zealand. It helped that David can speak Chinese.
