We stayed the weekend at the Camelot and the room was fantastic. Lovely comfortable bed and great facilities. Would highly recommend to everyone - such a great location to be able to walk to such great restaurants in such a lovely part of Christchurch. We had a wonderful weekend.

We stayed here our first two nights during our two week trip, and it was a great way to start our vacation. Penny and Brian couldn't have been more helpful and gave us recommendations and advice as soon as we walked in the door, which was especially helpful since many places in Christchurch have closed down after the earthquakes. Excellent...

We stayed at the Camelot for two nights at the start of our holiday in New Zealand. We were very impressed with the amount of space in our two bedroom apartment. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The upper level was quite hot during the day, but cooled off nicely in time for sleeping at night. The downstairs bedroom...

We arrived to 4 earthquakes on Dec. 23 and the owners treated us like family, inquiring after our well-being and offering us a room on the ground floor instead. The rooms were great with a separate kitchen and sitting area. Also super laundry facilities, a plus when you're traveling for extended periods of time. It was an easy walk to...
