We stayed at the Riverside for four nights in early June 2011. The Riverside is an absolutely fantastic hotel and we would highly recommend it. The village of Boscastle is truly picturesque and requires no introduction. The Riverside sits in a prime location next to the beautiful River Valency. The restaurant and many of the rooms overlook the River, which provides such a tranquil setting, but the fantastic location is not the essence of this hotel - it is the staff that are exceptional. Throughout our stay all the staff we encountered were great - the customer service was magnificent, however, what really shone through was how the staff worked well together, supported each other and looked truly happy to be there and working with each other. The happiness of the staff permeated through to the quality of service, nothing was too much trouble. We always received great service with a true and genuine smile.
As for the food in the restaurant, the breakfast and options were fantastic and the evening menu was of the highest quality and taste, providing great value for money with generous portion sizes. We chose to eat there every evening.
In terms of our room, it was very comfortable and clean, but, what was a real treat was the beautiful sound of the river passing by our window, which was immensely relaxing and therapeutic.
This hotel provides all that you need to enjoy a beautiful stay in this tranquil Cornish village. However, its greatest strengths and quality are to be found in its thoughtful and caring staff.
We look forward to visiting again very soon.
