My husband booked this as a birthday treat and we had the best room, overlooking the harbour, comfy beds, tea and coffee and complimentary toiletries, could not have asked for more, staff very polite and helpful and full english breakfast in the morning.

My husband treated me to 2 nights here for my birthday. It was hot & sunny throughout our stay which meant we didn't get more than a couple hours' sleep each night due to exceptional heat during the night. This didn't stop us partaking in what has to be the best asset Boscastle offers and that is coastal footpath walks... More

My husband and I were here for a night on a day visit to Boscastle. We picked the perfect place and we both loved it just the same with all great things to say. There is parking down the block in the main car park for a small fee between 10a-5p. We got there after 5pm so didn't have to... More

The Riverside, Boscastle, Cornwall This is a charming hotel in a gorgeous Cornish village, as others have said. We had two comfortable rooms with all we needed. The view out of our windows was over the river, and directly below, rooting around in the burbling water, was a family of ducks, including two little ducklings. Very pleasant sounds to sleep... More

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

We stayed for one night at the Riverside and had an absolutely lovely time. The service was excellent and very friendly. The room was delightful. Large and recently decorated with very attractive decoration. There was a lovely view out over the river and garden opposite. Dinner was excellent and really delicious. The dining room was airy and bright and the... More
