'Superior' vs 'Classic'

A popular question is what's the difference between the way we classify the guest rooms? Here is a short answer but if you are unsure then we recommend you contact us direct and we can provide any further information you may require.

'Superior' rooms are all front facing with views over Mounts Bay. They are furnished to a high standard in individual design schemes. We use zip & link beds to provide either king-size double or twin bedded configurations in these rooms so that guests can enjoy their own preference for sleeping in comfort.

Our two single rooms and two of the first floor rear facing double en-suites (one of which can be configured as a twin bedded room as with the 'Superior' rooms) are classified as 'Classic' bedrooms. These are also furnished to a high standard but typically do not have sea-views, rather they overlook the churchyard at the rear of the Camilla House.

One of the single rooms is not en-suite but instead has its own separate private shower and toilet facilities (not shared and exclusively for the guest in this room), however this room does benefit from being a good size and has the advantage of being forward facing and so enjoys the same views across Mounts Bay as the 'Superior' type rooms.

All the 'Classic' style rooms are offered at a lower rate than the 'Superior' rooms and provide an excellent alternative for the single traveller or when requiring a quiet room that allows for a peaceful and relaxing stay.

Lounge and Dining Room

The ground floor at the Camilla House has a delightful guest lounge that provides comfortable seating at which to enjoy one of the books from the small library, a wide variety of magazines or simply to spend time catching up with friends by e-mail on the iMac computer which is available to guests who don't have their own laptops or iPhones.

The other side of the ground floor is where the dining room can be found - tastefully furnished to provide a comfortable environment for relaxing in and enjoying good food.
