Stayed at camelot for 1 night for the other halfs 50th birthday. Fantastic location with views of Tintagel, the hotel looked majestic from the car park. The missus at first was a bit overawed with the hotel thinking it was a bit 'posh' for us, gaudy wallpaper even gaudier paintings on the walls i soon assured her that the word she was looking for was 'tacky' and not 'posh'. The polish receptionist greeted us with 'Ted Stourton' the best artist in the world, who, i answered. I soon found out who Ted was, his art adorns every nook and cranny at camelot. I was expecting medieval bits around the hotel but nothing of the sort, so when you stay here expect a victorian building with a medieval name with so called modern art on every wall. We found out that ted and his business partner had links to scientology, its funny but nothing specific happened but once we found that out the hotel had a different feel, cant put my finger on it but the place felt very eerie.
The room had a great view of Tintagel but the room itself was poor the shower room/toilet was in the style of a motorhome, there was a big gap between the bottom of the toilet door and the bedroom so when one of us had business in the toilet we could still maintain a conversation no problem, which was nice.
We booked in at 2pm and left the next morning at 8am, in all that time we only saw 3 staff in total,
for such a big hotel it seemed strange
Anyway hotel needs much updating and the insides need sorting out, is it a medieval castle/hotel or is it an art gallery for ted.
