Nine of us went to celebrate our multiple family birthdays, as we often do. This year things were different, and quite disappointing. We ate in the Camelia restaurant which may have been our mistake. The food was very slow to the table, as we had not been asked to choose our menu whilst taking cocktails for an hour beforehand. The... More

We have eaten at the Camelia many times but have never written a review before. Having just enjoyed a perfect Sunday lunch (yet again), we thought we should make amends. The 3 course lunch which also comes with delicious home baked bread rolls and an amuse bouche represents fantastic value at £32.50. The food is always of great quality and... More

Hugh Disappointment! It started with a Kia Royale that's tasted like neat cordial which we flagged to the waitress who apologised; it was clear she did not have the correct receipt for the drink so we asked for two glasses of champagne instead (house champagne is Taittinger) this tasted very light and lacked body and we later discover we were...

The limited Market Menu makes a great starting point for trying this restaurant, at 26GBP for 3 courses the food is lovely. Wine as expected is expensive but to be expected in a 5* hotel. Charming staff from Europe too I am pleased to say. Dining room overlooks the South Down and from the terrace you can see the Carthusian... More

If your redeeming dinner / lunch voucher, be aware. It was not surprising that drinks are extra, but how much extra may take you by surprise. When ordering a small celebratory sparkling rose, we asked the waiter for a recommendation. As he was aware we were on a voucher, I would have thought a budget offering would be a good... More

Arrived in good time for a pre-dinner drink. Both lounges were busy. Eventually ordered drinks and they arrived a little later. It was now after our time to dine. Menus arrived and we, eventually, ordered food and wines. A little later , get my point, we were shown to our table, not a massive problem as we weren't in any... More
