Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

We stayed 1 night at Camelot and were pleased with our stay. Room was large and well equipped, more like an apartment. Just a 5 minute drive to the downtown area and lots of places to eat. There are a couple places to eat that are a short walk also.

Spent three nights here earlier this month and I can certainly recommend it highly. We arrived a bit early and were able to check in straight away, and were upgraded to a room with spa bath. The room was a good size and the bed was oh so comfy. The kitchen area was tucked around the corner and had all...

This was my first stop of my road trip to New Zealand. And it was the best. Check in and check out was a breeze. Since I had made the payment earlier, I just picked up the key when I arrived and went to my apartment. It was beautiful. The kitchen had everything you needed. A stove hob, an oven,...

My partner and I loved our one night stay here. The room was spacious and so well-equipped, with a fully equipped kitchen, dining area and bathroom. The room was very clean and modern looking, with bright and colourful decorations. The only slight letdown was the wifi which dropped in and out a bit, but was perfectly fine for emailing and...

We only stayed for one night on the way through Hamilton and we had a King Spa Suite. It was spacious and clean. It had a small kitchen with ability to cook meals.

When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised by the nice open room with modern decor, the bed was comfy and the shower was great, unfortunately however the rest of the hotel was booked out by a large group of young people who were super noisy, young kids screaming outside our door, then partying next door after 11pm, then drunk kids...

Couldn't fault this place. Bed was extremely comfy. Nothing but the best. Shower superb. There is absolutely nothing negative you can say about this place & the Wifi really was super fast & unlimited. Loved the cold bottle of milk at checking in to make a cup of tea :)) I'd stay here again no problem

Stayed here for three nights. We used it as a base to explore the area around this central region of the north island. We found it to be clean, quiet, recently renovated and covering our needs. We had the three bedroom unit for the four of us but it could quite easily fit seven or eight (maybe not all adults)....
