1 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We were ushered by a very troubled receptionist to the deserted barren bar for breakfast, as the main dinning room was full. I asked maybe for a little music, which I was told would not be soft!!!! We had to asend to a flight of stairs to the Main breakfast area for cereal, which appeared to have 40 places but... More

Had a 4 night in a very nice room. All the staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. The bar meals were good with a reasonable selection to choose from. Plenty of options for walks from the hotel from coastal paths to woodland strolls.

Had an enjoyable stay. Quirky interesting old place in village. For example The room was an irregular shape with uneven boards on second floor so not an average b+b. Good breakfast and pleasant staff. Interesting beer garden up a woodland path. Worth a walk up to the artists seat. Boscastle is a nice wee place to visit.

The hotel is rich in history and character, with dedicated and personable service. A very comfortable and personable feel in a setting that invites relaxing and absorbing the Cornish way of life. The included breakfast had a pretty extensive selection (including vegetarian bacon and sausage) and was well-prepared, again with excellent service. I wish we could have spent more time... More

We were impressed with the service. The staff couldn't have been better. Boscastle is one of those places that you either love or hate. Yes it is commercial with the witchcraft museum, ice cream and trinket shops etc but it is a lovely riverside place with a spectacular blowhole spectacular scenery and an interesting history. The Wellington is similar. For... More

Thank you for your review and, yes, Boscastle is a beautiful place. You should consider returning out of the summer season when it is even more beautiful and tranquil and there are less ice cream banners! Thank you also for your comments on our food. Food is at the heart of the hotel and it is lovely to receive positive... More

We went to the hotel to enjoy their music night and thought it would be nice to start the evening with a tasty meal. We booked a table in the restaurant, not the bar, for 7pm. We arrived about 6:45 and spent time with a drink whilst we perused the menu. We were shown to our table and gave our... More

We are very sorry for the delay with your dinner. Obviously, we are delighted that you thought that the quality of the food was excellent when it arrived but clearly we did not handle the delay well. August is a very busy time for us and occasionally, particularly between 7.30 pm and 8.30 pm, we can become very busy. As... More

We picked this hotel due to the location and good reviews. Reviews are generally mixed and this was also our experience. Staff all very freindly and could not be faulted although there was no feeling of anyone in overall charge, manager etc which seemed out of keeping with a hotel of this price range. We were shown to the room... More
