We had Sunday lunch at the camelia hotel last week, it was really lovely food, so we went again this this week, and have already booked again for next week. Lots of fresh vegetables, which you don't get in a lot of places these days. And the desserts are delicious. Staff very friendly and helpful. Beautiful relating restaurant.
