Pat, our hostess/owner was so accommodating ! Friendly, clean,excellent breakfast at this B&B! Restaurants are within walking distance down quiet street. Pat gave wonderful suggestions of places to see including an antique mall. She also recommended excellent restaurants with good good and service that were not chains. We would come back .

We have been coming here since our son started at UF. It is a great place to come and unwind. Pat and Tom are very gracious and welcoming. The rooms are charming, comfortable, and spotless. We look forward to our next visit.

This is a meticulously restored, maintained and appointed B&B. It sits off one of the main thoroughfares by just a block, and is extremely quiet. Friendly service. Delicious breakfast. Lovely neighborhood.

We checked in to the Camelia Rose and were immediately impressed by the beauty of the outside of the building. The extensive porches and seating on the porches are a great place to relax and enjoy a wonderful afternoon drink. Wine and snacks are served in the evening and provide a great time to socialize with other guests or just... More

My boyfriend and I chose this as our half-way meeting point in Florida.. Neither one of us had ever stayed at a B & B. The home is absolutely breathtakingly gorgeous!!

My family and I stayed for my sons graduation from college. The inn is beautiful and very clean and well taken care of. The breakfast was excellent and they prepared it early to accommodate our graduation time. Thank you Pat, we will be back.I would highly recommend the Inn to everyone.

My husband and I spent our 20th anniversary here and enjoyed it very much. We stayed in the Lady Clare room - cozy and clean with a great view. Pat and Tom are great hosts and they know the best places to eat in town. They accommodated my husband's bicycle, and breakfast was very good. Will definitely return.

We stayed a few days in Gainesville as a short summer break. We chose the Camellia Rose because of its location - close enough to walk to downtown, but on a quiet street away from the bustle. We loved its calm, cool, shady-but-bright interiors. I could have lived happily on the deep wrap-around front porch! Our room was luxurious, and... More

My wife and I have stayed at the Camellia Rose Inn three times now within the past year. The first time we came, we had chosen the inn at random. The outstanding personal service, clean rooms, and fabulous breakfasts convinced us to return, and we will again in the future. Pat, Tom, and Chris make a great team. You will... More

My husband and I stayed here on our way home from our vacation to the Florida panhandle. As soon as we arrived we were greeted by Chris. I felt like I was reuniting with a long lost friend! She was sweet and friendly. We loved everything about this bed and breakfast. Snacks served periodically during the day and evening. The... More
