Was playing minder for the groom at a stag weekend. Did not want to stay with the lads in backpackers so chose Camellia Court. Super cheap at $50 per night for up to three in a budget cabin. 1.5km walk from the main shopping area. Room plain but adequate. Queen bed with single bunk over. Gave the queen bed to...

We very much enjoyed our stay at Camellia Court Motel! Accomodation was perfect in order, the wifi was FANTASTIC which is really awesome, the showers are also great and super clean! Definitely the best stay price/quality so far!!

A straightforward 70s style motel / motor camp. Tidy and functional, a short drive from centre of Taupo. Surrounded by flowering trees, and even a few camellias. Has a playground for smaller kids, and a small but well stocked kitchen block

Im happy with my stay, clean and tidy, no smells, the only thing that i dont like is the stove took a while to heat. We tried to cook noodles but it took us 20 minutes to boil, theres no sign on the stove. Receptionist is friendly.

So first of all when I booked the room for me and 2 work mates it was specified that there would be 2 single beds but instead we were given bunk beds. We found old mashed potato in our microwave as well. Which was not a great start. The room was clean and tidy but quite dated and could have...

The very friendly owners were most helpful and a pleasure to deal with.As we had two days of the four with dreadful weather, they assisted us to be as comfortable as possible. Also with our computer as they were miles better than me in the operation of it.All...

The rooms of the motel were very clean and neat and we were very satisfied with the accomodation. The hosts were especially friendly. We had to rearrange our booking because the cabin was too small. It was no problem at all and we did not have any extra charges. The motel cat is very nice, by the way. We can...

Stayed here for 1 night with our children. The room smelt so bad like it hasn't had a good clean for months. The bed sheets were dirty and pillows smelt disgusting my husband and I felt sick the whole time. It was our first time and I would never go back. Lovely people but the place itself is not worth...

I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay. We do put clean sheets on after every stay and the rooms are cleaned daily. If you were after 5 star accommodation i could recommend some places. We do try to do affordable prices but sometimes people think that they should get a motel for cabin prices. thank you for your...

We stayed at Camellia Court Motel for a couple of nights and it was perfect for our needs - lots of blankets and heater to keep us warm in the cold weather and while close to the lake, it was still nice and quiet. The only downside was that the one bedroom unit we stayed in was just a little...
