Spent a week here with friends. Everything was great: the room: the food: the staff. Ross and his staff couldn't have looked after us better. They were cheerful, fun as well as very professional. The restaurant was full every evening we were there, and pretty busy at lunchtimes, I believe. Would recommend it as a place to stay and or... More

We had originally booked a twin room with view down the harbour, unfortunately there was a problem with plumbing so we were offered another double room instead We accepted this over the phone, had we had seen the room before making a decision we probably would have asked for something else This room was packed with furniture, it was pokey...

Staying at The Riverside was a great experience. Right in the heart of Boscastle it was great for walking or just sitting by the River. The hotel was comfortable, warm and with great food. Decent Wifi access in all areas. Will definitely stay again!

Stayed May Day Weekend - what a delight - excellent accommodation and food at the adjacent restaurant. Staff very welcoming and attentive - food superb and breakfast to feed you for the day. Excellent position and parking on the public car park not a hardship. Stairs could be an issue if less than able bodied but staff are willing to... More

Stayed here for 3 nights on a walking weekend with friends. We had room 10, a large room which can sleep 3 at the rear of the hotel overlooking the river. It was very clean, comfortable and quiet, though obviously you could hear the river. We ate in the restaurant on a couple of nights. The food and service were... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in the Riverside. The staff are pleasant, friendly and helpful, always smiling. I wish I could have stayed for longer! The hotel is in a wonderful spot, overlooking the river. There's plenty to do whether you're a walker, sight seer, or history buff. And it's great to come back in the evening to a lovely... More

First let me tell you that you must go to the tourist office in the village to see the devastation this village triumphantly came thru not to many years back when a flood devastated the lower parts. This place is just oozing with character, we had a room over the river and was wonderful hearing the rushing water at night.... More

This is our second visit to The Riverside and yet another wonderful stay. The Riverside is in such a beautiful location and we were lucky to have a room on the top floor overlooking the harbour and also overlooking the river. We were very lucky with the weather and could just sit outside by the river in the afternoon and... More
