We stayed at Camelia Court for a family celebration from 1st April to 4th April 2016. We pretty much booked out the motel as there were 30 something of us.

We had a large of family staying at the motel for an anniversary weekend. The motel, although basic, was clean and had all the amenities required. The playground was great for the children, and the outside areas lent itself well to chatty groups. The management was very obliging and very friendly. The BBQ is complimentary and oil, sauce and assorted...

First off, let me just say that the lady who worked behind the main desk was exceptionally helpful and very friendly. But sadly this is the only good thing that can be said about this place! When we arrived, we were greeted by moldy sheets, and a door that had holes in the base. It was almost as if a...

This was our 4th stay at Cameilia Court over 16 years. New owners advised us that they are gradually upgrading and refurbishing the accommodation. We wish them well and look forward to another stay in the future.
