I spent one night at The Wellington on my way through Boscastle on the wonderful South West Coast Path. After 14 dramatic, muddy and challenging miles it was the perfect destination for some much needed comfort and relaxation. The welcome is warm, the ambience is historic, the facilities modern, the food excellent [even for a vegetarian] and the staff very... More

The Wellington is a well run, very friendly hotel. We have just spent a lovely weekend there and it was the best weather of the year so far. The staff are lovely and friendly and they made us very welcome. Breakfast was very nice. It's a dog friendly hotel and they made a big fuss of our dog, Honey. I... More

North Cornwall needs a top restaurant. I visited the Wellington for the first time- it was advertising a new chef. It was a bit quiet in the middle of a wet winter but there was a real fire and they have obviously thought hard about dining room decoration. I had the duck confit with pickled vegetables which was excellent. Excellent... More

Stayed there for my boyfriends birthday, absolutely lovely. From the service to the room to the food to the choices and decor and friendliness. Couldn't fault it. We had an evening meal and breakfast which both were perfect. Would definitely recommend it and would definitely stay again.

We stayed for a short break the week before Christmas. It was really quiet in Boscastle and surrounding spectacular Cornish coast. We had not been here for some years and it was good to re-acquaint ourselves. We cannot fault the hotel staff for their friendliness and courtesy. Nothing was too much trouble. Comfortable quiet room (23) that needs refurbishment in... More

We stayed here last weekend, a surprise break, staying in one of the tower rooms. The hotel looks fabulous from the outside, and this is matched fully on the inside. Reception is a bit utilitarian, but the rest of the hotel is, well, fabulous. Well designed, tastefully furnished without being twee, very comfortable, with plenty of quiet places to relax... More

We've just had a delicious 3 course meal in the bar at the Wellington. The food was fantastic - pickled pear, cambozola and spiced walnut salad followed by chicken and chorizo stir fry and orange cheesecake . Each course was wonderful. The staff are very welcoming and friendly, came to the pub quiz last night and had great fun. The... More

Well positioned, clean and comfortable. Staff friendly restaurant excellent. Only downside was the restaurant was closed on the Monday of our visit which we didn't know about. However, plenty of other places to eat in the village.
