We stayed for 3 nights on a special deal that was cheaper than most other places and it also included breakfast which is always a bonus. We were really unsure of what to think of this place... one of the owners is a wanna be famous artist (I'd never heard of him dispite just finishing a art degree). This "artist" has adapted the hotel into a kind of gallery for all his distastful obviously churned out artwork (it's on every wall). The worst has to be the horrible glittery paintings with stick on butterflies.. I've seen a 5 year old do better. Appart from this unfortunate decor the hotel is in a stunning location with breathtaking views. We got a free upgrade to a seaview due to the quiet winter season but I recommend paying a little extra to get the seaviews as it detracts a little from the artwork. We did read the reviews about the "tardis" bathrooms so were fully prepared and it wouldn't have bothered us but as it turns out the deluxe rooms have a normall bathroom with even a bath!
We felt uncomfortable for the majority of the stay as the owner and some of the staff seemed to look down on us when we arrived in our walking clothes in a old 2002 reg car. There were several very expensive cars parked right outside the front door (we assumed for show).
The bar was hidiously over priced and we had to ask at the reception twice to get served after sitting at the bar with an empty glass for 15mins. Breakfast was really good with a nice seletion (apart from the cheap thin bread for toast) Lots of cearels and juices.
I couldn't reccomend this hotel at the full price but with the winter deal we got and the free upgrade it was ok. I would not stay here again but I can't say that I didn't enjoy my stay as the area is lovely and we went for many lovely cliff top walks. Boscastle is our favorite place to visit. I just wish that they take down those horrible paintings that ruin the whole atmosphere.
