          • Family with children

            The lodge catered perfectly for our needs. We were a family group with older children and their partners. The stay was relaxing and the family lodge had a well equipped kitchen with a dishwasher. The living area was adequate with a good sized tv. Two bathrooms were a must and the four bedrooms were all comfortable. On our return we always found the unit had been serviced and the towels replaced. We found it quite central for many activities and within walking distance to Hagley Park, some shopping and coffee/restaurants. I would definitely recommend the family lodge for any larger group.

            The only things I can think of are that the spa jets were not working. Maybe the decor is a little tired in the living room and the bedrooms. It could be lightened up a bit - we did find the living area a little dark. Also the bathroom downstairs was rather chilly due to the gaps around the door.

            We stayed at the Camelot for an overnight before traveling on in the South Island. The owner, Brian, was extremely helpful.

          • Family with children
            8.8

            The stay was great thanks to the hospitality and dedication of the management who have been always helpful to an extent never encountered before. It is really nice to be welcomed in such a friendly and efficient manner. Makes you feel almost like home ore at some friends place. The unit was really perfectly sized and arranged and also makes you feel at home. A great place, very close to the city center, highly recommended.

          • Single

            The location was ideal for the places I would be visiting. Public buses operated on the road at the front and there were a number of nice cafes and eating establishments nearby.

            The owners were very helpful and very pleasant people!

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            The owners/managers could not have been more helpful. We stayed quite soon after the earthquake and they were able to tell us what was still available for us to go and see and make the necessary arrangements. Also liked free wifi and ability to print (also free!)

          • Family with children
            9.2

            Great service and help with my granddaughter. They couldn't have been better.

            I think the bathroom should have separate access or a door on the downstairs bedroom as I woke up my granddaughter when I went to the toilet.

          • Family with children
            7.4

            Comfortable beds, Friendly office staff, Quiet

            When my wife went to have a shower at 5am the morning we were leaving, there was no hot water (again) !!!!

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            We both loved The Camelot, Staff very friendly and more than helpful .Rooms are spotlessly clean and it's only a short walk into the city.Great pub nearby too.

          • Family with children
            8.8

            The host was very lovely and inviting, we had actually booked 2 rooms but once we had arrived we noticed we could all fit in the 1 room so our lovely host put us in the room and refunded the other room back, that is so nice. The spa was beautiful and although our stay was only 1 night it was lovely.

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            Kindness of the owners. free newspaper and internet,confort of the room.

            This was an excellent choice of accommodation. As we were arriving very late, the owners made special arrangements for us to access our room which had also been upgraded at no extra cost. Room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. Owners were very friendly and helpful. Look forward to staying again if ever we have the chance.

          • Group of friends
            7.8

            Friendly staff

            We stayed in a four bedroom lodge which only had two washrooms. We would have preferred an extra sink or toilet if not a full washroom. Also the rooms on first floor were too heated during the day. Suggest to instal ac in those rooms.

          • Family with children
            7.8

            Staff was very helpful and friendly. Great location walking distance to city. Able to accommodate our large group of 11 together in one room, the lodge.

            Hot water in our room gone long before everyone in our group had a shower.

          • Family with children
            10.0

            The room was big and very clean. Little extras like free DVDs to watch was nice too. Very nice owners.
