cheap, cheerful staff, clean and close to town we had a few laughs in our bunk room, ,met other guests in the kitchen and the showers had good pressure. all you need when your busy doing activities during the day. We will be back Look forward to seeing what other improvements the new owners accomplish in the for coming year.

First off, let me just say that the lady who worked behind the main desk was exceptionally helpful and very friendly. But sadly this is the only good thing that can be said about this place! When we arrived, we were greeted by moldy sheets, and a door that had holes in the base. It was almost as if a... More

This was our 4th stay at Cameilia Court over 16 years. New owners advised us that they are gradually upgrading and refurbishing the accommodation. We wish them well and look forward to another stay in the future.

I have no complaints about this property. It is within a 5 minute drive of the main town. The price was reasonable and I was happy that after calling 3 other properties I was thankful they had availability. The grounds are well kept and the area is quiet and it was easy to find. The Management were very helpful. Yes... More

Stayed for 3 nights in a triple bed cabin. Very, very basic accommodation, in a small room, but with a fantastic price. Also the sparseness of the room suited us as we spent most of our time out anyway! A short walk to Taupo Bungy and the Spa Park, and not too far to the town centre either. The shared... More

We booked three motel units for a one night stay. The rooms are quite dated and quite a bit of maintenance is required. Cleaning could be done better. In our unit, the top of the lights were filthy, the sofa not vacuumed, the shower constantly dripped, the bedroom curtains smelt mouldy, the window above the stove/sink was dirty. The kitchen...

Booked through lastminute.com, was not expecting much. Was extremely disappointing. We were told we were upgraded. The room was small, dirty and there were stains on the bedding. The room smelt. The window didn't lock. Claims to be a motel but is more like a kennel. Would not recommend, spend the extra $20 and get somewhere clean. Have never commented... More

The $95 definitely reflects the quality of this place. The room was very small with thin, light coloured cotton curtains that did nothing to keep light out. The metal bunks squeaked and rattled with the slightest movement so unfortunately neither of us got a wink of sleep. There was no smoke alarm in the room, and none in the shared... More
