Architecturally designed to offer spectacular views of Castlereagh reservoir, Camellia Hills is a modern five-bedroom tea planter's bungalow that sits on a mountainside in Dickoya surrounded by emerald tea fields and rolling hills. The three Lakeview Bedrooms and two Camellia Bedrooms all offer panoramic views. There’s a cosy open plan lounge with fireplace, and guests can dine indoors or on an open-sided terrace to take advantage of the valley vistas. In the garden lies a 10-metre infinity swimming pool and a relaxation ambalama for absorbing the scene. The climate in the hills is warm during the day yet fresher and cooler at night, and ideal for long walks. Scenic hikes through tea bushes are a highlight of a stay.

Everything about this boutique hotel is perfect expect the approach road. Brace yourself for the longest, roughest driveway you will ever experience!! However, once you arrive all will be forgiven. The staff and service are superb and the location is stunning with lake and hill

This is a gem. Only 5 rooms in total ideal for honeymooners although we were a family of 5 ( including grown up daughters) The hotel is in an actual tree plantation overlooking the lake- the most wonderful view. We had a corner room which was wonderful. You are treated like a

The initial approach is somewhat off putting - a very bumpy and tortuous drive from the mainroad to Camellia Hills, As soon as you arrive you see the stunning view across Castlereagh Reservoir. Thereafter the choice is yours - you can rest up in the garden or take a number of

Camellia Hills is set in the midst of a tea estate with stunning views over Castlereagh lake. It is characterised by peace, quiet, lovely walks and very attentive service. We spent a very enjoyable New Year here, complete with fireworks and the traditional Kiribat ceremony

We were on an all-inclusive on the coast on a Poya Day and they did not serve alcohol. Mercifully, we went to the airport that morning! I agree that it is best to contact the hotel, but I would take my own, just in case! The nearest supply is some distance away so warn your driver that you need some shopping.

Hi James, Thanks for your interest in Camellia Hills. It could be possible to arrange lunch depending on how many people would be visiting and what other bookings we have on that date. I'm afraid I'm not permitted to put our contact details here, but if you can find our Teardrop Hotels website and contact the reservations team with details of when you'd like to visit, they'll get back to you with a definite answer either way. It should be noted that we're quite a distance from the main roads, so does take a bit of an effort to reach us. The views, though, are spectacular! Looking forward to hearing from you. Best wishes, The Camellia Hills team!

Hi Jo, I'm very sorry, I've only just seen this query! Yes, the All-Inclusive supplement includes all house drinks...beer, house wine, house spirits, soft drinks and a tea factory tour at a nearby factory. It also includes breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. Shampoo, conditioner and shower gel are all provided and we can cater to your children's culinary requirements. I'm afraid I'm not permitted to put our contact details here, but if you can find our Teardrop Hotels website and contact the reservations team with details of your booking then they can answer any further queries or make a note of specific requirements. Best wishes, The Camellia Hills team!
