Camellia Court Motel
Ranked #55 of 68 Hotels in Taupo
Reviewed September 1, 2012

Booked in here last week for 4 nights in one of the motel units and back again tonight. Helpful and friendly owners. Spacious unit with sky tv, new comfy matresses and electric blankets which was extra toasty for a great nites sleep. No street noise was a bonus being tucked away at the back of the property. A practical kitchen to make a quick dinner or brekky or due to it's proximity to town easy enough to drive 2 mins to dine out. One added improvement that I could see would be to re paint the bathroom ceiling and install a ceiling extractor to remove the condensation. All in all value for money in pricey Taupo and would recommend to those budget conscious and not expecting the Soffitel :-)

We enjoyed staying in this motel. The rooms were comfortable, clean and tidy. The service was great and the owners very helpful and friendly. We had a good nights sleep as it was very quiet. Good value for money and to be recomended

Late evening arrival. Reception open for us. Happy to provide off street parking for a large truck. Unit warm, clean and comfortable. Recommend to everyone.

I have mixed feelings about this place. I paid $25 for my own room for the night, so my expectations weren't high.

Positives: cheap; quiet; comfortable bed in spite of thin mattress; heater worked well; good hot water for shower.

Negatives: fair way from the town centre (most of the hostels are closer); filthy and smelly communal bathrooms and showers; dated rooms with stained carpets and peeling wallpaper.

Overall: Stay in one of the hostels. It might cost you slightly more, but you'll get a relatively clean bathroom (at least one that has been cleaned sometime in the last 6 months). This place is ok in a pinch. The room was comfortable enough and the price was obviously low.

This was the perfect spot for us to stay whilst in Taupo. The greeting was friendly and the service was exceptional. We left something very precious behind and they went to enormous lengths to locate it and get it back safely. Over and above the call of duty. The booking needed to be changed and everything was smooth and easy.
The room was very clean and tidy and we slept like babies!
A great place to stay!

Not often do you find a very good budget price motel but I can say honestly this is one of them!
Good clean units with all the facilities with excellent friendly staff.
Best of all was no traffic noise ensuring that we all got a great night’s sleep.
Recommended to All !!!

Room Tip: Cant think of any; if you have a request ask the staff they are very easy to deal with

I was so pleasantly surprised to find this little gem. It was the perfect stopping place between Auckland and Wellington - so much so I would have liked to stay another night. Friendly staff, clean and spacious room and facilities to cook as well. Very quiet - had the best night's sleep. Its a lot more than just budget accommodation. Very good value for money.
