I booked this hotel as a birthday treat for my wife and we were so satisfied that I am re booking for another break for my birthday in November. Our room overlooked the river and was a shower ensuite, well maintained and furnished. The staff are polite, welcoming and approachable. The breakfast was well presented and the staff couldn't do...

The hotel was awesome, right on the bridge and we had a triple aspect room overlooking the River from all sides. Stunning large room (Room 2) with all the amenities you'd expect from a larger chain hotel. Staff were great, really friendly & helpful. Will definitely stay here again

A fantastic place to stay - fabulous friendly helpful staff - very comfortable spacious room - quite a lot of stairs up to our room but worth it! The bed was huge and comfortable and everywhere clean - wouldn't hesitate to go back - or to recommend to others.

My wife and I were born in Australia but my wife's Grandmother came to Australia in the early 1900's so we go back to Boscastle every 2 years or so. This is our first stay in Boscastle itself as we usually stay at Port Isaac or Plymouth, but it won't be the last. The Riverside is a beautiful old style... More

My husband booked this as a birthday treat and we had the best room, overlooking the harbour, comfy beds, tea and coffee and complimentary toiletries, could not have asked for more, staff very polite and helpful and full english breakfast in the morning.

My husband treated me to 2 nights here for my birthday. It was hot & sunny throughout our stay which meant we didn't get more than a couple hours' sleep each night due to exceptional heat during the night. This didn't stop us partaking in what has to be the best asset Boscastle offers and that is coastal footpath walks... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Riverside! Our room was very spacious and the bed was very comfortable, much better than many high end hotels we stayed in throughout the UK. The room and adjoining bathroom were very clean and tidy and everything was in perfect working order. The linens and room itself were a bit outdated, but we... More

My husband and I were here for a night on a day visit to Boscastle. We picked the perfect place and we both loved it just the same with all great things to say. There is parking down the block in the main car park for a small fee between 10a-5p. We got there after 5pm so didn't have to... More

The Riverside, Boscastle, Cornwall This is a charming hotel in a gorgeous Cornish village, as others have said. We had two comfortable rooms with all we needed. The view out of our windows was over the river, and directly below, rooting around in the burbling water, was a family of ducks, including two little ducklings. Very pleasant sounds to sleep...

stayed for 1 night Tues 14th July. Fabulous location, right at the bottom of the main street- parking at the main car park (200 yds away was only £4.20 for 24 hours). Staff excellent, great room (room 9) comfy bed, and enormous bathroom (just a shower but fine for us). Good view down to the harbour, and over looking the... More
