Visited The Riverside on a many occasions and each time the experience is faultless. Service being attentive to detail without being in your face from staff, cleanliness to a high standard and food of top quality. Best catering premise in the area. We will be back soon.

We came here on the spur of the moment & it was lovely. The room was great, as was the breakfast & Lee (concierge / waiter / general assistant) was friendly & helpful. The hotel is in a great location & just moments away from the river (as the name would suggest!), a great pub & the fascinating Museum of... More

Perfect location for our coast path walks, and very accommodating for our group's requirements. The staff gave us a warm welcome and were most helpful and friendly giving us personal service. Excellent breakfast and very comfortable room. Very good value. Thank you for a great stay.

The room was nice clean and tidy, let down by being over the kitchen with the noise and smell from the kitchen and the loud vent fans. Not good if you go to bed early ok after 11pm after that lovely sound from the river. As for the restaurant the food not as good as it should be for the... More

This hotel/pub was a terrific place to stay even though the wind howled and the sea battered the coast. Staff were really great and dinner and breakfast a happy affair. Given that this area was under threat [as was much of the south coast of England] the staff were reassuring and helpful with any questions that we had.

We popped in for coffee and was immediately greeted with a friendly face - this was the stormy Valentine weekend, remember! And even though we only wanted coffee we were given a table with a lovely view. Plus free wifi. Coffee was proper Italian. Menu looked amazing and it started to fill up while we were there. As we're going... More

stayed here after a family tragedy, and my parents kindly brought me here as Boscastle is one of my favourite places. I found the stay therapeutic and was made to feel most welcome. A lovely hotel, cosy clean and warm.

Recently stayed here taking advantage of a special special January offer of £25pppn against the usual £40 (which is itself a most reasonable 2014 tariff). I was well impressed by a very pleasant en-suite double very close to the river, facing west. The toiletries, alongside the neatly folded and positioned towels, were quality items. Large TV in the corner and... More

We spent three nights at the Riverside over New Year and the stay was perfect! The staff were friendly and helpful (Ross couldn’t do enough for us) and would really go out of their way to ensure their guests were well looked after; they even made the decision during dinner on New Year’s Eve that they were happy to open...
