We have been dining at the Camelia regularly for a couple of years now and it never disappoints.

Very comfortable, quiet room - good bed and excellent bed linen. My requests were met immediately, and with a smile. Further from my family than ideal for me, but I will be happy to return, and perhaps for long nger stays, in the future.

Twelve of us had lunch here on 27/12/16. There was a good selection on the menu and everyone said how pleased they were with their choices and how nicely the food was served up. The surroundings were very pleasant and not at all cramped. All in all excellent value and we shall no doubt be going back again.

Went to camelia with group of friends for Christmas evening meal. Excellent food, good selection including vegetarian options and very good value. Everyone said how good the food was and they would definately visit again. Had afternoon tea hear for my 60th birthday with friends and that was excellent too. Highly recommend.

As stated - average and ok but certainly nothing special. Roslin far better in my view particularly the bar / eating area. Rooms ok and clean but do what you want. Ocean beach or somewhere like that better for breakie !
