We chose Camilla House based on a recommendation from Rick Steve's book on England. We booked three rooms for five nights (June 1-6, 2015). The stay was absolutely excellent, thanks to our lovely host Fiona, who pays close attention to detail. For starters, the location makes for an easy walk up the hill to the high street, where one of... More

The owner, Fee could not have been more accommodating during my recent stay. She put herself out to make sure she was there when I arrived and when I needed space to work during the day. The room although small was spotlessly clean and perfectly adequate. The private bathroom although not in the room was again spotless. Breakfast was great... More

Fiona is an excellent hostess. She provided me with lots of information about where to go and means of transportation. I stayed in a single room at Camilla House in April. The room, named Kynance, was on the main floor and conveniently arranged. It was clean, very quiet, and had great reading light. The bathroom similarly, was small but well... More

The landlady Fiona was very friendly and helpful! The room and the whole house is beautiful with a great seaview. The location is perfect for going out for dinner at night and as a start to drive around the south of Cornwall. Breakfast was delicious! Thank you very much!

We stayed at Camilla House for three nights during our Easter holidays. Fiona was incredibly nice and helpful, suggesting places to eat and offering assistance whenever it was needed. Our room was big, airy and very well appointed. Everything was spotless. And since we asked for a top floor room the view of the sea was spectacular. Breakfasts were really... More
