We spent one evening at Camellia Rose Inn and it was wonderful. The innkeepers/owners were outstanding. They assisted use with selecting a restaurant and made us feel right at home during our brief visit.

This was our first experience in a B&B, and it met all of our expectations. Our room was very comfortable with a private bath. Pat has done a wonderful job restoring the property to period. Thank you, Pat, for a lovely experience. You have raised the bar high for any future B&B we might stay in. We would highly recommend... More

We stayed at Camellia Rose Inn this weekend to attend a friend's wedding. We travel extensively and, as a rule, we do not stay at B&Bs. We used to but stopped when we had a series of bad experiences in prior B&Bs. Our options were limited in Gainesville, however, so the Camellia Rose was the best choice available. This is... More

This was the perfect place for our romantic Valentine's Day getaway! We stayed in the Spat's Hideaway cottage, which was very comfy and private. Pat and Tom are the best hosts you could ever hope for. The home is beautiful, the grounds are lovely, and the location is perfect. The Inn is within easy walking distance to downtown, which is...

I say this in many ways because of this amazing location. Unlike many visitors, I suspect, my hour were more erratic but they made sure turn have coffee ready (with a timer) in early AM and bagged lunches and snacks for me to take if I left before breakfast. What an efficient, well run operation! They could not have been... More

My friend and I stayed one night and it was fantastic! Chris is a super charming girl and her manners as well as her cooking skills are a true asset to this place. They have wine and crackers available for snacking at night and a breakfast in the morning that is just out of this world!!! The rooms are so... More

Absolutely loved staying here! Pat and Tom do a terrific job of making their guests feel welcome. The rooms are very cozy and comfortable, and the breakfast was delicious as well. Would highly recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a great all-around B&B experience. We will definitely return for a future stay!

My husband and I stayed at the Camelia Rose for a night during our road trip around Florida. It was a great experience. The house is beautiful and immaculately clean. We stayed in the Stardust room and the shower was better than any I have experienced in a 5 star hotel. Loved the private balcony too. We went to the... More

This was our third stay at Camellia Rose and we found it just as excellent as before. The weather outside was chilly so the fireplace in our room was very welcoming. The breakfast was delicious: an egg dish, fruit, turkey sausage, and artisan bread. All beautifully presented. Pat is a gracious host and made us feel at home, as always.

This my first stay at a B&B and I will definitely be staying in more! I stayed in the Stardust room for the private balcony, though I was the only guest staying at the house that night so everywhere was quiet and private! I had been to Gainesville for an interview at the University of Florida for a medical residency... More
