Stayed at this motel with our three young children. Cost $150 for one night for a very small room that was filthy and very dated. The dials on the cooktop in the kitchenette were broken - did not even attempt to use. In fact we spent as little time as possible at this motel as it was so dingy. There was a dirty ashtray outside the door which was disconcerting when staying with children. The owner operator also made blatantly racist comments about other guests in front of us whilst we were checking in which was incredibly insulting. He also proceded to lecture us on how 'we were not to go into town and leave our small children at the playground for him to watch' I was astounded he would assume we would ever have done this! I would not recommend this place there are plenty of other nicer places to stay for the same or less amount of money available.

The motel was reasonably clean but everything was very tired and dated. We didn't have some of the basic things we'd expect - like a shaver point at the only mirror provided. We ended up drying hair and shaving in the kitchenette! It was more like a back packers or camp ground than a motel, and we felt that $140 was a complete rip off compared to what else is available.

Stayed in a 3 person motel unit. The room had a double bed and a single with a kitchenette (small fridge, microwave, 2 ring electric hot plate but no oven) plus a small ensuite with shower. The room was a good size and very clean and tidy. The place is a bit old, so the door lock was a bit stiff and there was no blind at the kitchen window. The carpets were in good condition and there was a small wardrobe and drawer unit. The tv was an older style one but had sky movies, sky sport and the box. The ensuite was very small but useable. The only problem was that the hot water supply was limited by a small hot water cylinder but the owner did warn me about it when he showed me the room - 7.5 minutes he said it would last for the shower and was about right. It heated up reasonably quickly though. The owner was very friendly. I paid $80 and would happily stay there again

We've stayed before while it was for sale. It impressed us enough to come back 5 years later. Unfortunately we're very disappointed. The owner is friendly but our room is very smelly - I thought it was a thermal smell so we said nothing but it seems that now that the smell might be a dog smell. Whatever it is its very strong and unpleasant. We are being charged 50% more than what's advertised and apart from rubbish and towels nothing is serviced - no more soap, coffee, beds made, showers cleaned or anything. The place is clean but tired. The servicing is poor, cigarette butts in the ashtray outside the unit are still there 3 days after our arrival..... and did I mention that smell? Not value at all.

We stayed at the Camellia Court Motel for four nights and found the staff great - very friendly and helpful. The location is excellent - really handy for everywhere and the place was immaculately clean. The facilities are great - just what you need. My one gripe is that access to the internet was patchy to say the least - once you were finally hooked up, it was fine - but it was frequently a real hassle getting online. The owner (Ockie) did say that this was something they were working on, so it may be done soon anyway. The only reason that this was such a problem for me was that I was job hunting at the time. Otherwise, the place is great and I would stay again, no problem.
