The rooms are so small and claustrophobic, the shower was old and the bottom was rotting, there was no power point in the bathroom for a shaver or hairdryer, and the hair dryer that was meant to be in the room was gone, bugger all power point in the lounge, and the tv was a shocker, the bedside radio didn't...

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.

I have no complaints about this property. It is within a 5 minute drive of the main town. The price was reasonable and I was happy that after calling 3 other properties I was thankful they had availability. The grounds are well kept and the area is quiet and it was easy to find. The Management were very helpful. Yes...

Stayed for 3 nights in a triple bed cabin. Very, very basic accommodation, in a small room, but with a fantastic price. Also the sparseness of the room suited us as we spent most of our time out anyway! A short walk to Taupo Bungy and the Spa Park, and not too far to the town centre either. The shared...

We booked three motel units for a one night stay. The rooms are quite dated and quite a bit of maintenance is required. Cleaning could be done better. In our unit, the top of the lights were filthy, the sofa not vacuumed, the shower constantly dripped, the bedroom curtains smelt mouldy, the window above the stove/sink was dirty. The kitchen...
