I booked the Riverside for Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th of August as a special bank holiday treat for my girlfriend who I really love and respect. The night before we set off on our bank holiday adventure my girlfriend went to her friends house to view her new kitchen and have a "gin and gossip" night. She left me... More

The room was very clean & comfortable, with a view on the river. Really quiet at night, from our bedroom we could hear only the water flowing along the river! The breakfast was really good and the dinner at the restaurant in the evening was absolutely amazing. Highly recommended.

This friendly, clean and well located hotel was great for our three night stay in Cornwall. Staff were lovely, rooms kept immaculately clean, and the restaurant was great. It was a super base to explore North Cornwall and after eating in the restaurant on the first night we decided we did not need to try anywhere else! We were introduced... More

Boscastle was our first stop on our holiday to Cornwall and we couldn't have been happier with our room at The Riverside. After lugging our suitcases up the cute winding stairs, we were showed to our room which was right by the river - perfect if you love falling asleep to the sound of flowing water like we do. The...

First thing - no need to consider The Riverside if you like large towns. It is in a very small village with few amenities. That being said, if you enjoy nature & scenery, it is a great location. Our room was quite large and comfortable, with a bathroom as large as some hotel rooms that we have been in. You... More

Lovely Riverside setting, staff friendly. Room clean (no shower), breakfast good, fresh and in very pleasant dining room. Liked the fact latest serving of breakfast was 10.30. Right by the harbour. Check was meant to be 4 pm but because we had booked direct we were allowed in early.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights so that we could do some walking on the Coastal Path. We were extremely impressed with this hotel. Our room (6) had everything we could wish for, including a comfy king-size bed and a bath with plenty of hot water. The four-course breakfast was fresh, delicious and beautifully presented and the...
