When I made the booking I double checked and confirmed the dinner option, but was dismayed when my parents told me that they only got one course. This is why it is not 5 stars. Lovely and... More

This hotel was spotless! We had a very clean room and immaculate bathroom. The room had a sea view and was tidy and had everything you need. The staff were delightful and had the biggest smiles! Breakfast very nice, including fresh melon, Greek yoghurt etc and bespoke cooked breakfasts. Very good value and very pleasant.

Me and my husband stayed here for 2 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is Clean and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was also lovely. I would stay here again. The beach was having a makeover when we left and this will dramatically improve the area.

I was anticipating it being a bit noisy, due to it's location, but it wasn't at all, I slept very well. Breakfast was lovely - quality ingredients and cooked to order. What really made this a hotel I woul dreturn to... More

We have just returned from a long weekend at the Camelia Hotel. This was a return visit as we had been before and been most impressed. We stayed in a suite in the annex which was excellent; large, comfortable bed, bathroom and large separate sitting room with a sea view, a large TV and a small kitchenette. All the rooms... More
