My husband and I spent my 70th birthday at Camelot Castle Hotel. When we arrived Agata (the very pleasant and efficient lady in reception) escorted us around the lounge, dining area and bar and then gave us the key to our room.
WOW. Room 102, a very large room with kingsize bed and two single beds, overlooking the cliffs and sea. First impressions very spacious but dated and tired. However the bed was so comfortable and everything so clean. We were informed that a refurbishment programme was in progress, we can't wait for them to get to room 102 to spruce it up. During the evenings we witnessed the most amazing sunsets over the sea. We would ask for a couple of armchairs in the bedroom to enjoy and relax watching the sunsets.
One problem was the "bathroom pod" for use of better words. The wash hand basin and toilet were more than adequate, but the shower??? A circular base approx. 2'6" in diameter with a curtain across was not big enough for anyone of my proportions (15 stone approx.). But please remember "you do not spend long in the shower" when you are on holiday.
We met the owners of the hotel Irina and John Mappin and Ted Stourton (artist). They were all very pleasant and asked if we were being looked after. Yes we were very happy. Irina seems a very caring person and even sent me a birthday card from the "crew".
Food - breakfast was very good and comprehensive choice, but the cooked food (bacon, eggs etc.) needed to be kept warmer. Dinner excellent (see Irina's Restaurant).
All "crew" members were so pleasant and helpful and made our stay such a memorable celebration.
