“Nothing too much trouble. . .”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

We spent four nights in this way above average B+B and can't fault it in any way.
The double room we had was very well decorated ,extremely clean and very comfortable with a very well appointed en-suite bathroom.
The highlights were the wonderful breakfasts and the desire of our hosts -Shelley and Geoff- to ensure that we wanted for nothing.The 'Orchard Omlette' was both wonderful and memorable and the choice of breakfast dishes superb.
Special mention must,however,go to Shelley and Geoff who -as the title implies- worked to the mantra that nothing was too much trouble .
Examples of this were to take our wet coats from us as we came in and use their own facilities to dry them and to allow us free use of their telephone when we were unable to obtain a signal on our mobiles.
Orchard Lodge is situated on a hill above the unique village of Boscatle.The walk down to the village is easy and takes about 10mins.The walk back up the hill takes significantly longer!
Although no evening meals are provided at Orchard Lodge it is within easy reach of a number of pubs and restaurants.We frequently used one called 'The Napoleon' which was about a five minute walk away .Good atmosphere and reasonably priced ,tasty food.
We will undoubtedly return to Orchard Lodge when we next visit Cornwall.

Room Tip: We didn't see any of the other rooms so hard to give tips.

We cannot recommend Orchard Lodge highly enough as the perfect b&b. The accommodation was excellent and our hosts, Geoff and Shelley, were friendly, informative and extremely helpful. The breakfasts, cooked and prepared by Geoff, and beautifully served by Shelley, were exceptional quality and consisted of not only an extensive English breakfast but also a choice of fish and a variety of freshly prepared fruit dishes. They thoroughly deserve their many top awards from tourist organisations. For evening meals there are many good local pubs and restaurants nearby and Boscastle is a delightful spot.

We turned up at Orchard Lodge one evening without any booking and were welcomed in out of the rain by Shelley and Geoff into their lovely Lodge. Shelley magically got us a table for dinner at the popular pub close by. Our room and ensuite was very clean and tastefully decorated. We spent a very restful and peaceful night. Breakfast was ample and superb! We highly recommend the omelette to share! Thank you to our hosts for such a lovely experience.

We had a great stay here. The accomodation and breakfast were excellent. We appreciated the information supplied on local walks. The Napoleon Inn, just a few minutes walk, provided very good pub meals (and beer).

We stayed four nights at Orchard Lodge and had a brilliant time. Our hosts Shelley and Geoff were very welcoming, friendly and very helpful, with regards to local information and places to visit. Orchard Lodge is a lovely quiet place to stay and not far from Boscastle itself. Our rooms were spotless, beautifully decorated and very comfortable as is the whole house. Breakfast was lovely with a good menu to choose from. We will definately visit again.

My sister and I stayed three nights at Orchard Lodge. Shelley and Geoff were welcoming, friendly, and helpful with useful information about the area. Our room and ensuite were spotless, with plenty of tea and coffee options. It's the first time I've had a cafetiere in my b+b bedroom! The breakfasts were delicious and imaginative - not just your usual "full English". We would recommend it to anyone.
