My wife had booked us to stay at the Riverside for two nights to celebrate my birthday, we had booked to have evening meal as well. The hotel is very small and lots of stairs going up to the rooms and no parking except for the public car park which is short distance up from the hotel. Our room was... More

We loved our stay in Boscastle, it was enhanced by our stay at The Riverside. The staff at the Riverside were very attentive and helpful. Breakfast was perfect and the evening meals in the restaurant were excellent.

The room was clean and comfortable with tea and coffee making facilities replenished on a daily basis. The bathroom was clean and mini soaps/shower gel was provided.The... More

Spent just the one night at the Riverside. The room was lovely, the shower was amazing (the best massage I've had in a while) and the breakfast was perfect. Would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone.

This little hotel has great ambiance. The location is right beside a river running over rocks. The sound puts you to sleep at night. The staff were all wonderful. The food was delicious and they were very accommodating with special requests to meet dietary needs. Wi-Fi was slow.

We stayed here for just one night and enjoyed it thoroughly. The hotel is right by the river and the restaurant and our room had lovely views. The food in the restaurant was fabulous (I had scallops followed by lemon sole and Eton mess for dessert) with lots of choice at breakfast. The staff were very helpful and friendly and... More
