The Wellington Hotel
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Boscastle
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 7, 2011

Only spent one night here while walking the coast path, but we were made to feel really welcome.

This is a quaint, slightly quirky hotel with really friendly, helpful staff. I loved the list in our room of the previous, famous occupants - made me want to stay in some of the other rooms just to see who had gone before!

Our room was very nicely appointed, everything we needed (including a generously sized flat screen TV). Not only was a comfy bed provided for Alfie, our Chocolate Labrador, he also got his own drinking bowl and a doggie treat!

We ate our evening meal in the bar and the food was excellent. Breakfast was top quality. We were a bit pressed for time so I ordered a full English as we sat down - wish I had read the menu first and gone for one of the other scrummy items such as Eggs Benedict, or.. or...

Plenty of free parking at the hotel and a great position. Highly recommended.

We had stayed 4 or 5 years before and it was good. This trip was supposed to be 1 night booked through lateRooms, but it was so good (Room 3) we changed our plans and asked if we could stay another night, we had to move rooms as they were very busy, but the room for the 2nd night (Room 15) was even better! Great rooms, friendly staff, mega breakfast. We are coming back as soon as we can.

Room Tip: Room 15 was a neat double room at the top, and Room 3 was a spacious Twin.

Stayed here for the first time as central point of reunion with 2 schoolmates. We had first encountered Boscastle in 1977 when we walked through along the North Cornwall Coastal path. We illegally camped in the valley and found our tents "de-poled" when we retired from a long fruitful night at the Cobweb Inn.
The Wellington was(by contrast) very welcoming and excellent all round. Breakfast was wonderful, and the rooms were comfortable and quiet. Bar food was spot on, and all staff were so friendly and kind. A classic hotel for all.

We enjoyed staying at The Wellington. Staff all very pleasant and complimentary coffee in the lounge upon arrival was very welcome. Our first visit to Boscastle and we thought it a lovely place and if ever we return we would certainly stay at The Wellington again. Many thanks.

We stayed in the larger family room with our 2 boys (6 & 8) and really enjoyed our time at the hotel. The staff were very friendly, the room was lovely and the food was a really pleasant surprise - my 6 year old says it was delicious particularly the homemade peanut butter ice cream! (Would love to have had proper juice with breakfast buffet though). Although we fancied eating in the quirky bar area, we decided on the slightly more formal dining room. Thanks goodness the boys were well behaved but as a family we were made to feel really welcome regardless.
Would have loved to have stayed longer and do more walking around the beautiful surrounding areas.
Hope to be back soon.

A great bar and fabulous food at lunchtime. We really only needed one course but the homemade pear and apple crumble was just too good to miss!
A great friendly feel in the bar made it so relaxing that we wanted to stay all afternoon.

We found this hotel by asking staff at the local Spar Shop after a bad expereience. What a gem!! The receptionish (who never seemed to be off duty but always smiling and helpful) showed us the room before we booked. A complete professional at her job. The room was fab and worth every penny, clean and well decorated, with a bed so huge I could lose my boyfriend in it!

The bar staff were also very friendly and chatty. We ate in the bar one night and sat in the beautiful garden with drinks and nothing was to much trouble.

This hotel made our stay in Cornwall perfect and I would love to return.
