Good service, quick simple inexpensive food in a well located position on the river and in quaint little town. Did not stay in the hotel but just ate at the restaurant. Allows for short walk through town and to the coast.

My wife asked for 2 rashers of bacon instead of sausages, because of gluten. The waitress, Sue, agreed to this. In due course, the bill came and...we were charged for extra bacon! We did NOT have the sausages, and Sue did not inform us that there was an extra charge for the bacon regardless of whether we had the sausages... More

Had coffee at 11.30am and enjoyed it so much decided to come back for lunch.Although it was very busy, we didn't have to wait too long for our meal which was lovely.We sat out on the river bank...

The hotel has a beautiful outside area at the back where it is lovely to have a drink or eat. The staff at the hotel were fantastic. When I arrived I... More

The Riverside is a great venue to eat, especially outside with the river running past. The meals were fantastic, the haddock, crab and lobster burger was amazing and the fish and chips was perfectly cooked. Staff very friendly too on entering and when ordering. 5 stars all around

Landed here by accident but what a gem. Staff are so helpful, family room is pleasant and spacious with a great view of the river or TV for the little ones. Restaurant was mid price but food excellent, fresh and different- hoorah no chips! Lovely riverside terrace for drinks or Boscastle centre literally on our doorstep.

Stayed here for one night. The room was lovely but not very clean. If you are expecting a five star hotel it's not like any other I've seen. If you expect a very quaint Cornish hotel in an amazing locating you can't go wrong. The staff were very friendly but we were amazed that there are no public areas. The... More
