“An Average B&B Experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2011

We had higher expectations for this auberge based on reviews on TA and from the pictures we found on the web. We were warmly greeted by Suzanne who is a delightful person and very helpful in providing advice on things to do in the area of Annecy for a one day visit. The food offered was average and the wine prices seemed excessive. Our room on the backside of the auberge was quiet which was so nice since we had been travelling for 24 hours. Driving instructions to the auberge were not entirely clear and we had to stop a couple of times to ask directions. It is unlikely that we would go out of our way to return to the auberge on future visits to the Haute Savoie.

Wrote a review after staying at Hotel Camelia in mid July 2011. It was on the screen after posting it but has disappeared from all reviews recently.
Any ideas why the removal of the post?

We stayed here in July 2011 and liked the place a lot. The hosts had excellent ideas about places to be seen and we valued their kind advice. The hotel is clean and the hosts are kind and friendly. The nature around the hotel is stunning, with great views over the surrounding villages. I would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to feel like home while on a skiing vacation or while just exploring nature any time of the year.

Planning to sleep on the Plateau de Glières, where by accident all hostels were closed that day, my brother and I found refuge after hours of hiking at this wonderful charming Auberge Camelia next to the Tête du Parmelan. We liked the cosy reception by the owners Sue, Roger & the helping hands (including the lovely dogs).
After a delicious regional dish we finished the evening in nice company and with some very good whisky. The comfortable room and the good continental breakfast did a great deal in helping us out at the next days' hike & bike tour back to Geneva. In total, its an excellent place to spend some days in friendly British atmosphere.

We stayed for only one night and I've never felt more sorry I made my plans ahead and didn't book at least two nights in hotel Auberge Camelia. What was intended as a single 'on route' stop to get some rest turned out to be a great pleasure in the company of our lovely hosts Suzanne & Roger! They sure know what they are doing making you feel absolutely at home in their lovely family hotel!
Food was delicious, wine was perfect, what else could a traveller needs in France?
We are on a motorcycle tour across southern France and I know we're coming back to Auberge Camelia one day soon!

Room Tip: For 3+ pax ask for room 8 on the second floor

Our initial first impression of Auberge Camelia was excellent. We arrived late at night and were greated by a sumptuous platter including meat, cheese, wine and chocolate cake. Once arriving in the room we were disgusted by the filth. The corners of the room didnt appear to be recently vacuumed, there were some cobwebs, and appeared to be some mold in the bathroom. All of these deficiencies could have easily been corrected with five minutes of cleaning in the room. We were also concerned with the breakfast. The jams were left open all day and the bread/ croissants needed to be replenished more often. On the positive note, Roger and Sue (owners) are very friendly and helpful with suggestions of things to do in the local area. We also had dinner one night which was very good and we tried the local specialty. Our overall impression impression is that Sue and Roger run this bed and breakfast more like a hobby then a business, which is good and bad. I think alot of the customers are regulars who like the quirkiness of Auberge Camelia. If the hotel put an emphasis on cleanliness I would consider returning.
