Nice staff, everything is very clean and save - also for single female travellers. It's just a 3 minute drive from the sea and 5 minutes from the center. During day you can...

Myself and a friend stayed at Camelthorn in November 2010 and had an absolutely fantastic holiday. The Lodge is in a stunning location, and is excellent value for money. The views are amazing and Marcus and the team made us feel very welcome. The atmosphere was very relaxed and friendly and it was as if it was our own home....

I am absolutely amazed by the critisism this hotel has received, although, I can see from the last response that some people just go on holiday to moan. Anyway, we have been to Camel Thorn 4 times now, as a couple, with family and hired all the rooms as part of a wedding and I have nothing but positive things...

Camelthorne Lodge calls itself a bed and breakfast but it is far more than that. Whilst you get the services of a B&B (great breakfast, rooms cleaned, beds made etc) it is much more relaxed. Marcus and his staff make eveyone feel really welcome. Guests have use of a well equipt kitchen and a fab open plan dining and sitting...
