stayed for 1 night Tues 14th July. Fabulous location, right at the bottom of the main street- parking at the main car park (200 yds away was only £4.20 for 24 hours). Staff excellent, great room (room 9) comfy bed, and enormous bathroom (just a shower but fine for us). Good view down to the harbour, and over looking the... More

Bostcastle is a gorgeous place, which deserves a visit. And The Riverside was a great experience. First the little small things: the exiting parking is public and a bit up the road (may be crowded at some times); there quite some steps in the house (may be a bit hard to carry large bags). Good things: large and comfortable room,... More

We had four nights there. The room was immaculate and we had a view over the river and down the valley towards the harbour (couldn't see that though!) although it was not difficult to see into it from the main road so beware. Breakfast was first class, excellent choice and quality and dinners ranged fom very good to excellent with... More

The Riverside is one of the pleasantest small hotels of the many in which I've stayed. The staff are very friendly, the room was very well appointed and everything one could wish for was provided. My room was at the rear beside the river, the sound of which was soothing. My son and daughter-in-law, who live nearby, joined me for... More

We spent one night here during our vacation and this was one of our favorite hotels. The location is great and our window looked out of the stone bridge and we heard the water flowing over the rocks, a sound we loved. You do have to ring the bell to enter but then you are given a key to the... More
