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

We stayed here for one night and had the most lovely room. Very spacious, sunny and spotless. We were overlooking the river and the gentle sound of the water was so soothing. The staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We hope to come again for 2 nights next time.

I stayed here with a friend of mine for a one night stop over and what a lovely location this has. We had single rooms on different floors and these were clean and adequate for our stay. Both rooms look out onto the babbling brook and it was so lovely waking up to that sound in the morning. Staff/owners were... More

My daughter and I stayed here for 1 night last December. We knew the only parking was in the public carpark up the street, but having been to Boscastle before, I knew it was only a short walk. We prepared by packing a small bag of essentials each and leaving our large cases in the car, which made the climb... More

  Hi   I would just like to thank all of the staff for a wonderful stay at the Riverside this easter weekend.    The rooms worked out fine in the end and the breakfast was fantastic every morning. The lady serving our table, Sue, was exceptional. Thank you.    We found the staff very welcoming, especially as we have... More
