Friends anniversary

I was invited to share with friends to celebrate their Anniversary. We went at lunch time. The meal was most enjoyable enhanced by lovely surroundings. The grounds are spectacular and worth allowing time to walk around. Would love to visit again for a special occasion.

Special lunch with friends for our anniversary. Service excellent. Food quality excellent. Portions tend to be smallish but then this is fine dining. Our party of 8 all enjoyed the overall experience. Wonderful ambience. Will highly recommend for the special occasion.

We had Saturday lunch at the Camelia to celebrate my partners birthday. The service was faultless, food was delicious and atmosphere very relaxing. They even put together a birthday cup cake on a decorated plate for my partner. A lovely lunch and relaxing afternoon at South Lodge.

Had a £200 voucher for use at the hotel and decided to use it on the Sunday night bliss package of DB&B for £198.00. We had a 2 course meal in the Camellia restaurant, both courses were bland to say the least. My husband had different meals and his were equally bland. The 3 side veg dishes (that we paid... More

Cracking food, the beef was amazing. Unfortunately a little let down by the service on this occasion which at this price point should be spot on... Enough to question a return visit, but maybe it was just a bad night.

We wanted somewhere extra special and had chosen Amberley Castle but booking staff were rude and unhelpful so we came to Camellia instead and were glad that we did. The food was superb and the service was attentive without being intrusive. We spent £95 for lunch which was three courses plus a glass of wine each. Niggles We would have... More

A pleasant place to visit however the whole operation seemed rather slack and poorly managed. We booked lunch in the Camellia restaurant which in itself was not entirely disappointing just let down by the poor timing and service. Apart from an enthusiastic and friendly welcome to the hotel we felt the rest of the experience to be well below what... More

Excellent in 2013 but whilst the food was wonderful the service was rushed given that is was New Year's Eve lunch. In 2013 we felt it was special.

Perfect setting for an afternoon tea. Exquisite setting and informative and attentive staff. The choice of sandwiches was limited but compensated for through the excellent range of teas.
