“Very comfortable,warm and Quiet”
Reviewed 3 May 2013

Our family of 4 stayed at Camelot in April 2013 for 19 nights while Fletchers were repairing our home after the earthquakes. I can not speak highly enough of the service we received. Sue and Trevor (the Managers) are the loveliest people. Nothing was ever a problem with them. The house keeping was always to a very high standard and they went the extra mile with lovely little touches in the unit. Our unit was warm and it was incredibly quiet, we never heard traffic noise. The unit was spacious enough for the four of us to be comfortable and not have the feeling that we were in each others space. Having the second bathroom was a bonus for our teenage daughter. I have already recommended Camelot to our friends who are soon to relocate while temporary from their home. I hope I have an excuse to go back to the Camelot and stay again, it was very relaxing during a stressful time. Thanks to all the staff at the Camelot

Room Tip: We had room 745, right in the middle of the complex. Absolutely wonderful

Received excellent service from front desk staff and many eating options. Clean rooms, nothing fancy but everything you need in a motel room. No pool really, it is tiny and spa is essentially non-existent. There was construction going on when we checked in but did not interfere with our stay. We walked to Botanic Gardens and Sea Container mall but was much farther than we thought, we hiked for a few miles. Good location, relatively close to downtown Christchurch and not too far from airport, so this was a convenient stay for us traveling through and from Christchurch.

Wonderful staff and owners at this property. From the minute you walk in to check in you feel welcomed and wanted. The property offers great amenities like a well stocked kitchen, a laundry facility and very clean rooms. The owners Penny and Brian are on the property working hard, along with great staff who are friendly, outgoing, full of information and suggestions, and ready to help you in any way. A big thank you to Lyndal, Sue, and Trevor. Very nice, clean, and comfortable place to stay.

We were a large complicated family group and Penny and Brian coped with us all and went out of their way to be helpful - even to the point of giving us some breakfast supplies when all the shops were closed for the public holidays! I am very happy to recommend the Camelot as an excellent, comfortable and friendly place to stay!!

We were a large family travelling for weeks and making our budget go a long way. Camelot was comfy and clean and great for our needs. We enjoyed it a lot .The kids enjoyed swimming in the hot tub outside.

One of the most important part of staying in a motel is the team that look after you. We were greeted and given tips and advice on where to go and given clear directions by a friendly motel manager. The room was good with a King Bed and was self contained with instructions on how to turn the fridge off (always nice when they value your sleep quality). We only stayed in Christchurch because we had a flight out next day and in Hindsight would have preferred to spend out last night in Akaroa but it was good to see how things were coming together after the earthquakes.

I booked with the Camelot as they were able comfortably accommodate a group of 6 men down in Christchurch for a Motorsport event making sure they had their space but also keeping the cost minimal, I found it very hard to secure what we needed in CHCH due to the disastrous events but the Camelot sure did bend over backwards for them and were able to help in other areas as well, so welcoming and lovely to deal with, I have confidence recommending anyone I know to stay there. Will definitely be using them again!
