All accommodations feature kitchenettes and living areas. Ironing facilities, flat-screen TVs, DVD players, and French presses are standard. Two-bedroom apartments and four-bedroom lodges are also available.

Camelot Motor Lodge has self-serve laundry facilities, a children’s play area, and a conference room. High-speed Wi-Fi access, luggage storage, and casino shuttles are offered for free.

The sprawling Hagley Park, which contains the Christchurch Botanic Gardens and the Canterbury Museum, is about a five-minute drive from the lodge. The historic Isaac Theatre Royal is two kilometres away.
