We had spent three nights in Camelot Motor Lodge last January (2011) after tedious 24h series of flights. The place was nice, comfortable and quiet but the biggest praise we have is for Brian and Penny. They have done their best and made our stay convenient and easy with their great patient help, clever and practical tips and pleasant and...

We had the opportunity to spend six nights here in October. On arrival Penny & Brian went out of their way to make us feel at home. The room was excellent and the staff catered to all our needs. It was so nice that they were all so upbeat about Christchurch despite the earthquake damage visible just a block away....

We used the Camelot as base camp before and after our trip around NZ. Hotel facilities were fantastic for a city which has had an earthquake rip through it. Everything was well maintained and clean. Penny, Brian and the staff were so very helpful and made you feel like you were dealing with family. Any queries we had we were...

I was almost put off by the 'Camelot' theme when looking at this hotel initially but am so glad it didn't stop me booking. This was a great place to stay in Christchurch. Very convenient to the city. The owners were really lovely, helpful people. The room was very clean, tidy, comfortable and well maintained, oh, and very quiet. We...

After travellling for 17 days through both islands and staying in many hotels and motels Camelot was definately the best place we had stayed.

Do not be put off by the first appearance of the place. The warm welcome we received melted us with fresh roses in our room. The rooms were comfortable and worked well for the four days we stayed. The little kitchen was perfect. Our hosts Penny, Brain and Lyndal were all so helpful. They really are in the right field;...

We stayed for one night in a 1 bedroom apartment which was well equipped, comfortable and spotless. Our hosts were very attentive, personally showing us the location of our room and taking the time to book us into a very popular Italian restaurant in the area while we took a walk around the accessible areas of the CBD. Although our...

We stayed at the Camelot recently for one night in a one bedroom unit.

We stayed here when visiting Christchurch for our son's wedding and the owners, Brian and Penny, could not have been more helpful or friendly. Our room was brilliant as it had a separate lounge which gave us the chance to entertain family from the UK and Australia who came over for the wedding and who also stayed at the motel....
