Booked two rooms, one suite and one King. Both rooms very clean and comfortable. The suite was huge, we were not expecting it to be quite so big, it has a small kitchenette area that would be ideal for making small snacks if staying for a longer period of time. We did find the bathroom slightly small in the suite,...

We went for a weekend and was pleasantly surprised by the ambience and friendliness of all the staff. Food was excellent a very pleasant weekend. Not far from pier aquarium and good eating out pubs and restaurants as well as enjoying eating at the hotel.

We felt very welcome and would definitely book again and recommend...

This boutique hotel has a very contemporary style and is clean, comfortable and welcoming. Lunch was a pleasure and good value. We resolved...

We have been dining at the Camelia regularly for a couple of years now and it never disappoints. Service is exception, food always excellent and well presented and the chef isn't afraid to try something new. We have eaten breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and more often dinner and despite so many visits we never get bored. The main menu is...

Very comfortable, quiet room - good bed and excellent bed linen. My requests were met immediately, and with a smile. Further from my family than ideal for me, but I will be happy to return, and perhaps for long nger stays, in the future.
