We stayed here for a boozy birthday weekend, hotel and staff both very good. Didn't eat there so can't comment on food. Perfect location, right opposite the beach. Only a short walk to a few pubs or a cheap taxi ride to the main stretch. Night porter told us off for being too loud on our second night. Think it's...

Delicious freshly cooked food. Fish and chips / Ribeye Steak / Burger / Pasta / Homemade Pie were all superb. Also cater for dogs. Ours enjoyed their sausage and scrambled egg although can also have meat and veg. They can join you on the verandah or bar. Staff extremely friendly.

We love popping into the Camelia for a drink on the terrace. The staff are always so friendly and the food is yummy. The terrace has heated lamps donit still a great spot to sit and watch the sea and the world go by even in winter!

Went for a stroll with my husband along the sea front and decided to stop for tea and cake. A very pleasant experience, a nice pot of tea and good to sit outside and enjoy the weather and sea view. They did have other cakes on offer which I was told was made by their receptionist which looked scrummy but...

Everything was spot on we stayed for 2 nights for a boozy weekend, the rooms were nice and big and the bed super comfortable. We did get told off by the Porter on the second night for being a bit loud which was probably justified. Perfect location. We would definitely stay again.
