My wife and I have just spent seven nights here and have never been more delighted with the quality of service and accommodation.We found everywhere was spotless and tastefully decorated and the en suite knocks your eyes out! There is a tremendous choice for breakfast from humble toast and marmalade to eggs royale. Fee is an accomplished host who can... 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!

Arriving straight off the Paddington to Penzance sleeper my friend and I were greeted with a very warm welcome. Our stay was great, breakfast couldn't have been better and bedrooms, towels and bathrooms were all of high standard. Thank you.

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

Camilla house We booked 4 nights at Camilla House after reading brilliant reviews about the establishment on Trip Advisor. We came down to explore this end of the country as much as possible in the time available, so the location proved to be excellent. Upon arrival, we were met with plenty of information about places to eat, attractions and other... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and for your favourable remarks. I apologize that you did not get the normal courtesies on departure. It was unfortunate that when you wanted to leave, your car was blocked and I had to shuffle around two cars whilst breakfast was in full swing. My mind was simply on my... More

Beautiful old house with sea views, welcoming and friendly hosts, interesting town for a relaxing break away from it all... Perfect Good Base for visiting national trust properties, sun bathing on the lovely sandy beaches, eating cornish pasties in quaint fishing harbours and walking along Cornwall

We stayed for three nights, and really enjoyed the hospitality at Camilla House, Fee, the owner, was extremely accommodating, and (over a cup of tea) provided us with a comprehensive list of good pubs and restaurants to eat at on our arrival; we followed her advice, and were blown away by how good the local dining was! The room was... More

Under new management since our last visit and Fee, the new owner, has kept the same high standards of hospitality and comfort as the previous owners.

Camilla House is well situated and characterful. The breakfasts are hearty and are beautifully cooked. The new management keeps up the excellent local knowledge and advice.
