Would recommend this motel”
We were in Christchurch for a family funeral. We needed a quiet and comfortable home away from home type room and we were very happy with Camelot. We stayed in a suite room, upstairs and away from the road, which was great. We cooked some meals in the well equiped kitchenette.
The lodge is located in the city center and there are places to eat, shop and nearby to sightseeing / attractions. Besides, the lodge was spacious enough and clean. They had good sized rooms and complete cooking equipments. Our kids love this lodge and we all enjoy very much. The staff are friendly too.
Good place to stay, would recommend a rear unit as it is a busy area. We had a family sized room for three of us and it was great. It could do with some updates but it was still comfortable for us. Staff were really nice and helpful. Location is perfect for people wanting to be close to town and the airport. Pretty easy to get to both.
Thank you for the positive review. We appreciate all feedback as it allows us to improve our services, we are in a fantastic location. We hope that you will stay with us again in the future.
3 star budget”
Stayed 2 nights. Heating doesn’t reach all areas of house. Bathtub has a stain. Kitchen is equipped and wifi connects. Hotel staff is friendly. Breakfast is available at hotel next door which is handy for those that don’t want to cook. Location is on main road and close to Christchurch centre
Thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear of the issues you had during your stay. We are currently looking at ways to improve heating issues in rooms. House keeping staff have been re-advised to check rooms for issues and rectify them. We are fortunate to be in a great location. Thank you for staying with us, we hope you return again.
spacious, but one of heater broken, so living room is not worm enough. even provide bath, amount of hot water is insufficient. If someone use more hot water, water is not heated quickly enough for the rest.
Thank you for your review. I apologize for the issues you encountered during your stay. We are currently looking at ways to improve the heating in rooms. Staff have been advised on the procedure to use when the hot water is not heating quickly. Thank you for staying with us, we hope to see you here again.
Only stayed one night but found everything fine, very clean large rooms with good tv and WiFi and small kitchen area
Convenient location, well equipped”
Practical, everything we needed was there. Clean.
Hit with the kids!”
Good location between airport and city centre (walking distance to the latter). The cool architecture was a hit with the kids. Spacious and comfortable rooms on both my stays.
Hotel is very pretty. large room with full facilities”
i really love hotel decoration. clean room and comfort bed.
Nice rooms. The 2 storey room has lots of space, great when travelling with children, young or old. Great location.
Couple of male business travellers in town for couple of nights. Great location and close to the bars and town. Facilities good but could do with an upgrade. Would stay again.
Thank you for the positive review. We look forward to you staying with us again in the future.
For a family this was ideal. Lots of space and location is great.
Thank you for the positive review. We look forward to seeing you again in the future.
We stayed one night to break up a long drive. Rooms are a bit dated, but it was one of the cleanest rooms I have ever stayed in. Based on that + friendly staff I would definitely stay here again. We had a room on the ground floor and had to keep the curtains closed for privacy so try request a room on a higher level. Would recommend.
Good location, spacious and value for money”
The rooms and toilet are spacious. Kitchenette is long and spacious too. However, we noticed there are sharp metal pieces (like staplers) sticking out from the carpet just before the tiled floors of the kitchenette. Management may want to look into it before someone get injured. Apparently the sharp metal pieces showed up in the 2 different units which we stayed. And yes, it will be nice to have a pair of scissors in each unit
Perfect: Comfortable, clean and complete”
Camelot offered more than what we expected. It had a small playground (trampoline, slides and swings) right outside our door for my son to play in. A pool with a barbeque area was also available for guest use. Our room had all the pots and pans, dishes, appliances and heaters to make us feel right at home. We were regularly asked if we needed our room cleaned at about 10:30 am. The staff is absolutely fabulous. Look for Anna at the reception area. She made our stay at this awesome four star motor lodge a very enjoyable one with her five star service. You feel safe here with the location and inclusions providing a lot of value for your money. Bonus: Pedro's Lamb (one of the best eateries in Christchurch) is right across the street, ten minute walk to Merivale Mall and Fresh Choice Supermarket for shopping and groceries, bus stop on Papanui Road and Hagley Park is less than a five minute stroll.
Comfortable 2 night Stay”
Very happy with our 2 nights with the Lodge. Comfortable and clean. We can park our car right at the front door. Free Wifi and the gentleman at the reception, Shawn, is very pleasant to deal with. Great location in Merivale.
Booked based on the good reviews and the desire to be somewhat central for ease of getting around Christchurch. Immediately disappointed - Room, bathroom and kitchenette were all very outdated - Shower had no pressure whatsoever - Fridge was extremely noisy throughout the night - Noisy outside - Bed was very lumpy, towels were Krusty - Tv did not have a good picture nor did it have many channels
Awesome service, family friendly”
We had a great stay at Camelot. The staff were friendly, and went out of their way to please. They were quick to recommend restaurants and sights to see. Great directions given on how best to get around, and had plenty of time for our children with complimentary DVD's and books.
Very peaceful and enjoyable”
My husband & I, plus my son/wife from Perth stayed l night and found the motel to be a very nice and attractive motel. There are lovely garden beds around the roads within the motel, also a small play area if you had children.
excellent and quirky hotel with helpful hosts”
We really enjoyed our night at the Tudor lodge motel. The 2 bedroom apartment was comfy and fun. We loved the upstairs bedroom with an ensuite in the hexagonal turret room. There is plenty of room in the apartment for many more people than we had (3 of us) and the kitchen is roomy and useful. The hosts were very friendly and helpful and the motel is close to a wide range of dining options. We would thoroughly recommend this motel.
Huge rooms handy to city and main roads.”
Only stayed a night but a huge family unit, 4 beds upstairs and a double and single down. Heaters all working made it cosy even in the depths of winter. Problem with so many beds there was only one bathroom (toilet). Very well appointed right down to the plaunger coffee. Free internet and newspaper and very friendly staff.
great location,wonderful service and spacious room”
its a really surprise for us to stay at the hotel. the receiptionists are so friendly and helpful. provided us with free wifi code, selection of dvds, directions, helped us to take photos for hte family. several restaurants near by with a huge wine/bear/spirits shop cross the road. extremely convenient. the room is huge, we had a downstairs and upstairs loft apartment, every comfortable!!
Convenient and Pleasant”
An older style property in a good area. The friendly and personal service was a key point. The rooms are clean, comfortable and functional. The bed was exceptionally cosy. Rooms near the staircase can be a little noisy. No restaurant on the premises but there are many nearby.
Hospitality at its best”
Nice hotel in Christchurch. The best feature was the service. They go out of their way to make ones stay memorable. The only upper end hotel in all our travel around New Zealand that gave us unlimited free internet. They even gave free DVDs to watch in your room (room had a DVD player). Eating places (wide selection) is only a stones throw away. Go into Trip Advisor and see how many positive reccomendations are posted. Unbelievable.
well located, good motel with good kitchen”
A mock Tudor look adequate motel at a reasonable rate. Central location near good restaurants and shopping mall. The kitchen is well equipped and motel is quiet. Good for a short stay in central Christchurch.
Nice welcome to Christchurch”
This place is easy to find which has lots of restaurant and shops near it. The park is also within walking distance. Although it was next to a main road, it is still far enough as we couldn't hear the noise from the road. The people at the reception was very friendly and helpful. Having car parks within the motel compound was also good. The rooms were a bit outdated but it was clean. Free WiFi is one of the reason why I chose this motel.
Friendly and very good service”
Brian went above and beyond the call of duty when we arrived late (almost 10 pm)last Thursday night. He had stayed at reception for us to arrive, then immediately organised a table in a nearby restuarant. He sent us onto the restaurant and took our bags to our rooms himself.
Great location and friendly staff.”
the hotel is one of the best options for staying near the city center, it is very near the central business district, within walking distance, and the staff and accommodations are great. the hotel itself is a little old, but besides this, out stay was great and the hotel
A very good special was offered which made our stay very economical. A very large complex but quiet and clean. Comfortable beds. Parking on site not always available but street parking quite OK. Our unit was upstairs so ability to manage stairs important.
was told on arrival wifi may not work well in my room but if it didn't I could come to reception and use wifi there.I informed them that it was essential i had wifi the man gave me a big explanation about why I may not get it can. I suggest you fix the problem or stop advertising wifi in the rooms Had a toilet that would not flush it was blocked very messy to fix this we were given a key to a room in another block of units to use when i brought these issues to the attention of the management in the morning i was apologized to GREAT MADE EVERY THING OK

Good location. Very nice lodge
Very comfortable bed, very spacious room, great check in and check out experience, stayed here a few nights and close proximity to everything. Thank you for the great stay
Thank you for the positive review.
Rooms were a bit hit or miss.”
Rooms were a bit hit or miss. The first room they gave us there was blood on the wall and light switch. The kitchen was dirty, lightbulb was missing from the bedside lamp, shower head is broken so just dribbled water out and the wifi didn’t want to work for any of us. We asked to move rooms in the morning and eventually we were allowed to switch. New room was cleaner and didn’t have the above issues.
Ran out of hot water”
After spending 4 hours in the car, we all needed to shower, after second shower we ran out of hot water. Furniture is very dated. Our room really needed a facelift. The accomodation was cheap but it felt REALLY cheap!
very comfortable NICE!!!!”
seperate lounge to bedroom, clean as a whistle, great shower and robes provided, lacking in coffee and tea facilities (poor).... AND please get the spouting down pipe inlet covered @769... if you hear a phone playing the spanish flea its coming from the drainage pipe where my phone is, attendant thort it was quite amusing, thanx to the caretaker tho who tried...
Camelot in Dec15”
Stayed for 2 nights with family. Or room was directly opposite reception and close to main road - so was not quiet and had a lot of street lighting at night. Difficult to sleep in warm nights with windows open. However, some of the rooms at rear would probably be better. The pool is best left unmentioned - too small. Location is good - close to gardens and eating places
Good choice for families 2 bedroom was huge!”
Very good stay. Would definitely stay there again. I would choose a room close to the back as the front side can get noisy. Also, the lodge has a pre negotiated rate with the taxis making it a bit more reasonable.
Great location but small rooms.”
I didn't appreciate the fact that my credit card was billed as soon as the booking was made online. I also would have liked a room with a bath. We also had extremely noisy inconsiderate neighbours in the room next to us.
Good Location and nice service”
The motel staff was friendly and helpful. The beds were clean and comfortable.The kitchen was well equipped and the bathroom was quite compact but clean. Unfortunately, the unit where we stayed was right next to the main road and road pavement construction was being carried out at the time and can be quite noisy at times. The lounge was comfortable and spacious.
Good service but poor facilities”
We had problem with noise, as stayed in a Saturday night and I believe a party group arrived later and carried on partying on in the house at the back of our room. Because it wasn't guests from the hotel we thought nothing could be done about it, but they kept us up till very late with music and noise. The reception people were very helpful in finding us more information about attractions that we were interested on the internet, contacting them over the phone and printing off information for us. We wanted to prolong our stay and it was a shame there were no more rooms available. We found the shower and the swimming pool small and never found the spa pool mentioned in the booking website. Finally we thought it was a bit of a trouble that there's no kitchen therefor no breakfast or restaurant in the premises, and if we wanted to order anything as room service it would come from the hotel next door but charging an expensive extra amount. At least it is very careful of the management to put a list of menus from other places in the room. We appreciate your effort on recycling the rubbish.
check-in was simple and fast. the reception was very friendly and was very accommodating and provide lots of suggestions on places to visit. the room is spacious but it feels a bit outdated. but most importantly, the room was clean. we are able to park our car near the room which is helpful. we had some trouble controlling the temperature of the heater as it tends to get quite hot which makes the room stuffy. the hot water is also limited for each boiling session per room.
The rate of $68 per night was wonderful value.
Thank you for the positive review.
Lovely pool and spa area.easy travel to anywhere.heaps of room to move around.
Value for money, spacious, convenient location ”
Friendly staff. Close to amenities and restaurants and cafes. Spacious
Have stayed many times before and yet to disappoint”
