“Lovely”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2011

This hotel and resturant were a lovely surprise. The food was excellant and it was close enough to Tintagel Castle to explore the area and town centre. The only draw back was the cold rooms. Tried putting central heating on but room never seemed to warm up. Would recommed the costal walk the views are amazing.

We have enjoyed staying ,on two occasions, at Bossiney House Hotel and highly recommend the accommodation and service. We look forward to visiting again in 2011.Apart from the wealth of interest in the surrounding areas whether for healthy outdoor pursuits, stunning scenery or historical interest, we have experienced total relaxation thanks to Mike, Mary, Doug and the staff at Bossiney.
We run a guest house ourselves in the Brighton area and so can be quite critical when
it comes to detail. First impressions are most important and, on arrival, we were immediately at ease, feeling like part of the family - so refreshing when compared to larger hotels where one can feel like just another number.
Weloved the choice offered at breakfast as well as the lunches and evening meals. Cleanliness and attention to detail are prevelent throughout with a comfortable bar area, garden and enclosed pool.The hotel is set in lovely surroundings and so we could enjoy walking along local cliff paths and to visit the nearby village - where incidentally you can buy superb cornish pasties and see the local sights.
Bossiney House Hotel is a home from home for us.

I would not return or recommend this hotel for a variety of reasons. I could see that parts of the hotel have been refurbished but there are many areas that leave a lot to be desired. I agree with the other comments re the dog , fine if you are a dog lover. The lounge and bar areas need a lot of attention re decoration. I gave up choosing the cooked breakfast as it was never hot as it is cooked and left on a heated tray, it was lukewarm and so was the toast. I felt that the whole place has possibilities but has a lot of work to be done to warrant the amount being charged. I would certainly not return.

My wife, two young children and I have just got back this week from a short holiday in Cornwall. We all had a great time! The staff and owners greeted us warmly, took good care of us especially the kids who loved Angus, this big deerhound fellow. The position was perfect to allow us to go for walks and enjoy the local beaches. We stayed on the ground floor and benefitted from a nice family room. Looking forward to going back soon.

My wife and myself chose this hotel for a short break in Cornwall close to the sea and we were delighted with our stay. The welcome was friendly and informative. The staff gave us some great tips on what to see and do in the area, Tina our waitress was great and very helpfull. Our room was very comfortable, nice clean white sheets and we had a lovelly sea view. Breakfast was fresh with both a continental and cooked breakfast, I don't remember having a nicer one. We had a very good experience eating in the restaurant on Saturday night, my ribeye steak was exceptional.

I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights in June 2010 and, like the previous reviewer, feel that their website had led me to expect the hotel to be better than it actually was. In fact, we were so disappointed when we first arrived that we actually rang around a couple of other hotels looking for alternative accommodation (they were full so we stayed put).

Our room was in the old part of the house and was quite a good size, but the bathroom seriously let it down. It was a chocolate brown suite with a most unhygienic carpet. The shower was actually fairly decent, although on the final day there was a knock on the door whilst I was taking a shower because there was water running through the ceiling downstairs! The bed was comfy but the other fittings and furniture were so dated that it gave the hotel a uncared-for feel.

The communal areas downstairs had obviously been updated more recently. The dining room was lovely - bright and airy with white linen tablecloths. The breakfast selection was generally pretty good, although for the price I would have expected hot food to be cooked to order, rather than served buffet style. The breakfast staff was helpful and friendly though.

We were put off of using the other communal areas, mainly due to the large dog who had the complete run of the downstairs area, bar the dining room. He seemed friendly enough but he is HUGE - fine if you're a dog-lover, but not so good if you're actually a bit wary of dogs.

Whilst Tintagel itself isn't the most scenic of locations (nearby Boscastle and Port Isaac are much more picturesque), it's ideally located for the local coast paths. There are plenty of pubs and a few restaurants in the town, although we mostly travelled outside the area in the evenings to eat.

By the end of our holiday, the hotel had grown on us - hence the 3 star rating - but I wouldn't go back. It seems to rely very heavily on business from package tours (there was a large group there during our stay) rather than more independent travellers. I just think for the money it should have been better.
