Stayed here on business and enjoyed my stay. The room was clean and tidy, though a little cool for my liking. The heating struggled to heat the room, but once in bed it was fine. Bed was comfortable and the room was quiet. The bar was small, but quite nice and the staff were friendly. The food was tasty and... More

Stayed many times, good food, helpfull friendly staff, comfortable rooms. All in all absolutely fine for shot stay. Might request a different room if staying longer but I am sure they would oblige. Ask for a sea view though other wise its the car park

It is clean, friendly, professional with comfortable beds, lovely rooms and great food along with lovely staff especially our lovely greeting by Leona followed by the very... More

We stayed her for two nights as my partner had business in London but we wanted to stay at the sea side with our 7 year old son. We could not have chosen a nicer place to stay. The location was beautiful, on the sea front but convenient for everywhere. The hotel was spotless and the family room perfect for... More

The AA sign outside the Camelia shows three stars but all this tells you is that the hotel lacks the extra facilities or ‘frills’ a larger hotel may provide. What the sign does not tell you is that the quality of everything the Camelia does provide is very good and, at the reasonable charges made, the value is five-star. The... More

We stayed here for one night only, but from walking in the door the service was excellent. Everyone was so friendly and efficient and all spoke English! We were upgraded free on arrival to a sea view suite and it was absolutely brilliant! So clean and modern. As it was January, it was also really warm. A comfortable night's sleep... More
