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)....

Clean and modern well equiped rooms. I stayed here twice over a 3 week period and was pleased with all aspects of my stays. Parking is right outside the room, the rooms are large and well lit with modern facilities. Good for family stays or business trips.

I would definitely recommend this place. Nice spacious rooms, modern bathroom (finally some fine toilet paper:) The only upside is that there was no fan in the bathroom and there are thin walls so you can hear every step from the hallway...

We were making a whirlwind trip to attend a family wedding at Mt Ruapehu and decided to overnight in Hamilton rather than drive straight through. Wouldn't normally book a motel but stumbled upon Camelot after getting frustrated with the very small choice of hotels in Hamilton and after reading disappointing review after disappointing review decided we had to look further...

A short way from the stadium and the downtown strip, you will find Ulster St which is lined with motels. Our choice was the newly refurbished Camelot. It is a one story U shaped motel with parking lot in the center. There is no grass to be found in that area, but there are some small plantings. .A small swimming...

We stayed at Camelot because it was only 5 minutes walk from FMG Stadium where we went to watch Wellington Phoenix FC play.
