Sat in the garden for lunch which was comfortable and sheltered. Good choice on the menu and very reasonably priced. Food was freshly prepared and tasty. Service good too. They also offer all day breakfasts. Garden not visible from front, but if you walk further on to the bridge you will have a view of the garden - although entrance... More

We popped in for a drink after a few miles walking on the coast. Walked in had menus shoved upon us, assumed we wanted food. Thinking we would be polite and eat we went to order a drink and a light bite, sitting outside walked over the bridge to bar, didn't get our table number the barman refused to take... More

Character hotel in excellent position - just spent 2 nights here. Excellent value for money - room very good. Staff very friendly. Only problem - guests walking around in room above sounded like a herd of elephants and noise very early in morning and later at night made it difficult to sleep properly. As property listed, not much can be... More

Great lunch, excellent value for money :) I would advise that you book in advance as we did. It was a cold and wet day, people were coming in for a table but fully booked. A compliment to Boscastle and its people.

A warm and friendly welcome, a lovely light and spacious room with views down to the harbour (room no. 2). Very quiet at night. The restaurant was full (you do need to book) but it was warm enough to sit outside by the river and he fish and the steak were excellent.

The interiors are dated but bizarrely it somehow suits the countryside feel and character of the village and the house. Our room had a view of the river and the cafe in the garden (very beautiful) and it was quite spacious. There is a nice restaurant downstairs too, which is convenient. Unfortunately the quality of sleep was pretty bad as... More

We booked a week in The Riverside and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Our room (no. 2) overlooked the harbour and the river and had ensuite bathroom. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good. Dinner, which we had on 3 evenings, was excellent. The restaurant was completely full on each occasion - a measure of its quality.... More

Good size rooms in a large old house alongside a small bubbling river. Everything you need is nearby including parking. The best thing was the food (breakfast and dinner with generous portions). We had the lobster Thermidor and crayfish tails washed down with a Muscadet. Delicious. Staff very friendly and helpful. Excellent location for hikers and Tintagel.

We stayed here on night (and having now seen this area, would love to return and stay again at this accommodation) on our way around the South of England and Wales. An awesome nights stay in a nice room on the second at the back of the property, overlooking the babbling brook. Only negative is the lack of parking, due... More

I booked this hotel as a birthday treat for my wife and we were so satisfied that I am re booking for another break for my birthday in November. Our room overlooked the river and was a shower ensuite, well maintained and furnished. The staff are polite, welcoming and approachable. The breakfast was well presented and the staff couldn't do...
