I love to stay at riverside
5 stars 5

'I love to stay at the Riverside either on my own or with my husband. The single room that I have stayed in is very small but does have everything I needed, perhaps better for a one or two night stay. The double rooms we have used have been really large. Everything is scrupulously clean, beds are very comfortable with plenty of extra bedding should you require. The heating in the rooms is thermostatically controlled, very easy to have at your preferred temperature. I absolutely love the breakfasts, very nicely cooked and served by lovely staff.The menu at breakfast is a little old fashioned, in my opinion, I would love to see some more healthy options but that could just be me!I tend to be extremely hungry as I am an early riser, the breakfast begins at 8.30 which I find late, normally I would be out by then.'

'We haven’t stayed at Riverside for a few years, but we were not disappointed. We booked the LOVE February deal which was amazing value for money. We had a warm welcome on arrival, we were delighted with our room, no 11, very spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed the chilled champagne and chocolates on arrival which set the tone of indulgence for the weekend. Both nights we enjoyed three course dinners with plenty of options, all cooked to perfection. These were accompanied by excellent wines. The staff are all really attentive and nothing is too much trouble. The same quality and service apply to breakfast of which there is lots of choice, all nicely cooked and served. We will definitely be returning soon to enjoy more of their hospitality, thanks to all the staff that looked after us during the weekend, both front of house and behind the scenes.'

Our room at the top of the hotel overlooked the river and the sweet ducks who live there, very soothing sound of rushing water at night. The bathroom was small but had a good shower and nice toiletries were provided. A small thing that would have made our visit even better would have been nice big bath sheets instead of ordinary sized bath towels. Wonderful food in the restaurant, not only dinner but really nice breakfasts as well. All the staff were very professional and pleasant.'

August bank holiday long weekend
5 stars 5

'Having \"re-found\" Cornwall a few years ago this was our 4th visit to the Riverside in 5 years and it never fails to impress! In no way \"corporate\" or \"plastic\" it offers great value accommodation in an idilic setting with (honestly) one of the best restaurants in Cornwall. We stayed 5 nights (Thurs to Tue) over the bank holiday, had a river view room complete with a \"chorus\" of ducks out side our window to keep us company. The rooms are comfortable, spacious and with everything you could possibly need for a break away from a busy life/work schedule. The breakfasts are to die for and a real set you up for the day, always served with a smile. Managed dinner in the restaurant twice during our stay, an more would be over indulgence! For us, at 8:30, breakast is a little late starting but we like to get on ASAP each day so no big deal and I\'m being really picky there and fully understand that with the hours the owners and staff keep any earlier would be a strtech I guess? Already looking into booking again for 2018, hopefully in May.'

Our room was clean, spacious and airy with a view from the bathroom looking down the river towards the harbour. We ate in the hotel restaurant on 2 of our 3 nights and the food was superb, as was the service. Breakfast was also excellent with a wide choice available. One morning we had to leave the hotel early before breakfast was served but we were provided with cartons of juice, Alpen bars and fruit the night before so we could eat something first thing. A nice touch. All the staff were friendly and welcoming but we must give Ross and Andy a special mention. Thanks guys. We\'ve come home with some wonderful memories .... oh and a bottle of Tarquins! This was our first visit to The Riverside and we can safely say it won\'t be our last. Russ & Sarah Powell May 2017'

'Boscastle is a lovely little village near Tintagel and with great walks around and lots to see. Our room was good, looking out over the stream/River Valency and we loved watching the Mama ducks and little ones. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfasts were particularly good in the lovely corner room. We also enjoyed the dinners in the restaurant and great coffee. I struggled a bit with the stairs (both up and down and twisting) and some with poor light and no handrails, but I managed with care and the staff helped with the luggage.

We particularly liked the food and the maklbec on the wine list was probably the best I\'ve had, very smooth indeed, Malbec can sometimes be a little rough round the edges.'

'I am not sure how many times we have stayed at the Riverside now but it must be in double figures and we have never been disappointed. This hotel excels in every respect in my opinion; comfort, food, cleanliness, position and above all the friendliness and warmth of it\'s staff. It may be that you could find a hotel with a more facilities or a larger menu or perhaps a spectacular view but, and this is the key, not with the same value. Ross has a team that that should be a shining example to hoteliers everywhere and my wife and I will be returning as often as we can. Quite simply the Riverside is a gem set in a perfect matrix!

It is so refreshing to know that the staff really care and that they remember you. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for everything see you all very soon. And the stunning Boscastle'

Windy weekend

'We have just returned from a very windy 2 nights stay at the Riverside and as usual had a fantastic time. Our room(2) was huge and had views over the harbour and the river to the side. It was cosy and warm with a very comfortable bed and extremely well equipped with a bath and shower. The 4 course breakfast is fantastic with a good choice ranging from the usual full english to kippers or smoked salmon and as much toast and coffee as you want. We ate in the restaurant one evening and the food and service were superb. Overall, this is a fantastic little hotel right in the middle of Boscastle with great staff and food, ideally placed to explore the beautiful north cornish coast.'

Quick Half Term Break

'We were a couple taking our Mother who is 80+ and staying at the Riverside Hotel. The staff and service were absolutely brilliant, we had a couple of rooms and they were both fitted out to cater for all our needs during the short stay, the only issue I had was the sink was to small with a glass shelf above this and to clean the old teeth was a bit of a struggle for someone tall but that did not spoil our stay in the Riverside, we had a meal there and the food was tasty and very filling. Boscastle is a wonderful place and after the floods of 2004 Riverside and all who suffered deeply have created another picturesque village for us all to enjoy. Thank you to the all the staff of Riverside Hotel for their wonderful service and making our stay very enjoyable and we will come back and recommend this hotel. A+++'

'Excellent food, value for money and wonderful staff plus a superb setting made this a delightful 4-dayer. Rooms(2) we had were good, well appointed and very clean although neither had a shower. However after a long trek around the area a hot bath was more than welcome. Windows and doors tended to rattle on windy nights but that\'s the downfall of grade 2 listings. Minor points indeed as the overall attention to detail was on a par and better than many 4/5 star establishments.'

The room was sparklingly clean, tastefully decorated and well appointed and the icing on the cake was waking to the sound of the Valency river flowing past my window the next morning - bliss! The only downside was I couldn\'t stay longer!'

'Thank you so much for our recent stay at the Riverside. Accommodation was excellent and food in the adjacent restaurant was superb. Excellent value for money and the breakfast justly deserves it\'s award truly setting you up for the day. On return visit to the area after several years break - will definitely be returning and staying the Riverside again. Highly recommended. The little touches such as a boot tray for those mucky walking boots after tackling the coastal path all make for a relaxing stay. Rooms where immaculate and bathroom excellent. Lots of hot water for muscle soaking bath!'

4 day May break

'Really can\'t praise The Riverside enough. This was our 3rd stay in recent years and it\'s now just \"where we go\" if we want a Cornwall break. Good rooms (great views from room 2 this year), all the facilities you could want, a quality feel to all the fittings and simply a wonderful restaurant for both the amazing breakfast and evening meals. You CAN pay an awful lot more for your Cornwall accommodation but I can\'t really see why you\'d want to. The Riverside is in a wonderful location, you can literally be anywhere in Cornwall within an hour or so, Boscastle itself is picture postcard perfect, with some beautiful clifftop walks minutes away and a good pub over the road. You also get a real sense of community from the village which is a bonus. Ross and the entire Riverside team just quietly get on with the job, are never intrusive but always on hand where needed....truly a 10 out of ten from us, we will be back.'

Staying with my 7month old son and my mother
5 stars 5

'I stayed in a family room with my mother and 7 month old son. The room was an excellent size with plenty of room. I slept in the double bed and my mom the single bed and there was still plenty lf room for the travel cot provided for my son. The view from the room looked out upon the river and bridge directly. The view was gorgeous and very peaceful and quiet. The room was spotless and the bed linen was clean and smelling so fresh it was a joy to sleep in. The beds were super comfy and we all had a fabulous night sleep. Plenty of room in the wardrobe and the en-suite was immaculate. Breakfast was amazing and I have never stayed anywhere with such a large selection of breakfast menu. Staff were amazing and very helpful from start to finish. Very informative upon check in and super pleasant during breakfast and check out. The whole stay was such a pleasure and I would definitely stay again. Thank you so much to all the staff for making my stay so superb. Staff are very underestimated I feel but here you are made to feel so welcome it really is a home from home. Please do not have any reservations about staying here as you will not regret it. Thank you. Xx'

'We can\'t praise The Riverside Hotel highly enough. It is second to none. Set in the most beautiful surroundings, it was the perfect venue for a relaxing week away. The accommodation was superbly presented and spotlessly clean. Every attention was paid to the comfort and convenience of guests. Food served in the restaurant was perfection itself, especially the sticky toffee pudding. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, each and every member being friendly, helpful and a pleasure to speak to. Anyone considering a stay at The Riverside would be assured of the warmest of welcomes. It is definitely a Cornish treasure to be recommended.'

'We really liked this hotel. The rooms were comfortable and clean, and the service was friendly. We only had two slight complaints: being there in the hot spell we found the rooms very warm and needed to keep the doors open to cause a draft as the windows were very small. And there were not enough power points in one of the rooms. The restaurant served really good food and the breakfasts were excellent. We loved the view and sound of the river and the ducks pottering about below our window. Beautiful!'

The views from the riverside are amazing, the location is in the heart of the harbour area, but very quiet at night. All that fresh air was wonderful. The parking is a few metres away in the public parking and is free after 6 amnd before 10 in the morning. I will be back- initially we booked one night and ended up staying for three!'

After my friar tuck breakfast we tackle the rugged coastal paths to burn the calories ready to clean up before our evening meal which is the only Big decision of the day. A nice bottle of reasonably priced wine or local beer then back to our room over looking the strong community spirited village and river that makes Boscastle unique. Start the day hearing the river gently trickle and shop owners, opening up for the day, walking down to a warm smile from the staff and the smell of coffee bacon and toast, No Worries!

I had to miss breakfast on my first morning because I was working at an event so the fabulous kitchen staff plated up a delicious full vegetarian breakfast for me, wrapped in foil and had it delivered to me piping hot. Just wonderful service. I also enjoyed a delicious evening meal AT&T he hotel with five colleagues which was perfect and excellent value for money.

The room was just right - it was a good size giving us plenty of space and a comfortable bed. The tea/coffee tray was kept well supplied and a flask of fresh milk was provided each afternoon when we asked for it. The standard of cleanliness was excellent. The breakfasts were brilliant. I had fruit salad to start each morning and on the last day I had the smoked salmon and scrambled egg and it was gorgeous!

The Riverside Hotel
5 stars 5

'My mother and I visited England for the first time in April 2013, and we stayed in a variety of rooms from hostels to B & B's during the course of our trip. However, we both agreed that our 2-night stay at the Riverside was our favorite. The room was picturesque, we were right by the river, the bathroom had a tub, the people were friendly, and the restaurant even had something on the dinner menu to accommodate a vegan diet. We couldn't ask for more. Highly recommended.'

'We had stayed at the Riverside before, so when we knew it was just the place to celebrate my 50th (quietly) and to re charge our batteries. Yet again, the quality of the accommodation, the food and all the people involved in the running of the Riverside made our stay an extremely pleasurable experience. We stayed for seven nights and was sorry when it was time to leave. Many thanks for a great stay, and hope to be back soon, keep up the good work.'

The food was excellent and the coffees are out of this world. The rooms are big and comfortable, and the staff cant do enough to help you.

Holiday

'Despite the fact that we were expecting a 5* Hotel which was totally our fault as we had misunderstood the wording on the downloaded Hotel information, we did enjoy our stay at the Riverside. The breakfasts were superb and set you up for the day and the evening meals were not bad either, although for us there was rather too much seafood. The service and helpfulness of the staff was second to none. Our only real complaint was that there was no lounge where you could enjoy a coffee and relax after one of those delightful meals. Hopefully we are not the only people to make this mistake and we would like to recommend that the wording is changed to avoid any problems in the future.'

What a wonderful surprise
5 stars 5

'We were four senior Yanks who were a bit skeptical about staying in a "traditional" British inn. They tend to be very uncomfortable, inefficient, and difficult to navigate. The Riverside was a wonderful surprise. Without losing any of the charm and quaint eccentricity of an old inn, the Riverside was very comfortable. Wonderful beds, quiet rooms, modern amenities, the room layout on the floors wasn't too confusing, and there were nice touches such as a coffee/tea service with biscuits. The staff absolutely made the entire visit memorable. What wonderful, friendly, professional and efficient staff! Our group had a couple of unusual requests and the staff (Russ in particular!) were very patient, understanding and accommodating. The food in the restaurant was excellent (breakfast was brilliant!) and the Riverside is perfectly located for walks all over the village and along the coastal trail. This was our second visit to Boscastle and first to the Riverside. We'll be back!'

The breakfast was one of the best I've had with a great choice. A really nice touch was the option for a fresh fruit salad made up delivered to the table. The service was also excellent and the hotel easily deserves its number one status in Boscastle. I would fully recommend the Riverside to anyone who wishes to stay in Boscastle.

We had a pre wedding meal for our 44 guests in the restaurant on the Thursday night and probably caused havoc but the staff dealt with everything with their normal courtesy and professionalism. The food was really good and everyone was happy. Thank you once again for everything and hopefully we will see you again soon.

“Absolutely Amazing Breakfast”
5 stars 5

'Reviewed 26 February 2013 NEW The Riverside Hotel was instantly welcoming, homely and warming. Within minutes of arrival we knew we had selected the right hotel for a weekend break away. Following check-in, the staff member offered to take our luggage to our rooms for us (not experienced that for a long time), ensured we had enough heating and provided us with key information. The bedroom was very well presented with neutral decor, comfy beds and high quality linens and towels. The bathroom was clean and modern with a large bath. The room came equipped with a large flat screen TV/DVD player, refreshment tray and a little bag of toiletries. The best part of the experience was the absolutely amazing breakfast that we enjoyed. Not only were we spoilt for choice. We were served everything direct to our table, and the quality of the food was outstanding – probably the best cooked breakfast I have ever tasted!!! In summary, an outstanding hotel in a lovely area – well worth a visit!! We will be returning again soon – which is very usual for us.'

The breakfasts are amazing with a great choice and the food in the restaurant in the evening is good too. Our room was really big and comfortable with a view over the river. We like it here so much most of our wedding guests are staying here in April!'

'My partner and myself stayed one night as a birthday surprise. Immediately we walked in, it smelt fresh and clean. Staff were polite and efficient from arriving to the minute we left. Our room was immaculate and overlooked the river. We decided to book our evening meal there too. Best decision ever! We both had steaks which were cooked to perfection. The whole meal was perfect in every way. Breakfast following morning lived up to the expectations from the meal the evening before... all delicious! We would definitely come back again and recommend to family and friends too. Excellently run establishment made possible with the brilliant staff we met. Well done to all of you! Thank you.'

There is also a lovely walk to the sea front and to the cliffs. The Riverside is very friendly and the rooms clean and spacious. The only downside was that out room only had a bath, no shower, so I would advise anyone only wanting a shower to prehaps request this on booking. The breakfast's were amazing with a brilliant choice and really set us up for the day. We never ate there in the evening but the menu looks great.

We went on some walks in the beautiful surroundings and it was nice to be able to return to a comfortable room when the weather got too much. Choice at breakfast was outstanding. We ate in the restaurant twice and the food and portions were excellent. Staff were helpful and friendly. Our only disappointment was missing out on being able to sit in the lovely beer garden because of the weather.

'Have stayed here possibly 8 or 9 times now over the last 12 years. Breakfasts are reliably excellent - varied and flexible menu - and are served up to a very civilised 10.30am (we aren't morning people). It's an old building right on the river and within a very short walk of the harbour and access to the cliff tops. Good pubs nearby - just a few seconds away. Old building does mean you have to put up with creaky floorboards in the rooms but if you can cope with that its a comfortable stay with great views.'

Chocolate cheesecake a must!
5 stars 5

'Most impressive was the service in the restaurant; nice food served with a smile. We were made very welcome. The hotel has some historic charm and is well positioned right next to the river in the village centre. The room was comfortable and clean. The en-suite had underfloor heating - very impressive - but the sink size was too small (our only criticism). The chocolate cheesecake in the restaurant was out of this world, clearly made by a chef with character.'

The Guest House is in a central location in BOSCASTLE and parking is simple in the nearby car park. Breakfast is amongst the best you could have esepcially if you choose the fish course - choice of 3, salmon, kippers or smoked haddock. The full english is also very good Highly recommended if you want to stay in that part of Cornwall, plenty to do an see.

We received a very warm welcome and was quickly shown to our room and given some local advice about where to eat and drink etc. The rooms are very nice, although could probably benefit from modernisation. The river is quite noisy although not intrusive. The restaurant is clean, modern, the service is brilliant and the food excellent. In sum, a very nice and comfortable place to stay and I would definitely stay there again. Recommended.'

We filled the hotel to capacity for 4 nights with our guests (from Germany and England) and had a wonderful wedding day celebration, where we enjoyed the delicious Riverside carvery or fish and chips! The Riverside staff were wonderful from start to finish and really went above and beyond the call of duty to make our special day perfect. Many of our wedding guests arrived at the hotel late in the night from Germany and were all greeted warmly and immediately made to feel welcome, despite the late hour! The Riverside hotel is a very special place and I would highly recommend both the restaurant and hotel accomodation to anybody.'

Great Stay

'My wife and I only stayed for two nights but I have to say we were made to feel welcome, the staff were very good and friendly. The food,breakfast and evening meal(s)were very good and the location is great. I know the Hotel has a rating as 5 star but I would personally say it is a good 4 star but good value for money. I have no hesitation in recommending the Riverside for anyone wishing to stay in this well run Hotel.'

Not what we expected
5 stars 5

'We wanted a weekend in Cornwall so hunted around on the internet to find a likely place saw the Riverside and tried to book but it was full. Before hanging up and looking elsewhere I asked reception if they would call me if they had a cancellation (not really expecting to hear from them). A month or so later I had a call out of the blue from Ross at the Riverside asking If I was still looking as they had a cancellation, a price was agreed and the confirmation received via email, a few weeks later we left for Boscastle. Based on the price, our expectations were not very high although the reviews of the Riverside were pretty good. But not really good enough it turns out ! All of the staff were friendly cheerful and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for any of them. Our room was spotless comfortable and well appointed, with a view down to the river below. We eat out on the first night of our stay at the Cobweb Inn up the road, which was very good. The following morning we went down to breakfast and had a brilliant selection of foods offered all of which were prepared superbly. That night we ate in the restaurant and had an excellent meal including soup,Japanese Prawns, & Steak the service again being friendly & attentive. I really could not fault this brilliant little hotel and its staff not five stars but six Thank You'

'This was our fourth visit. Our room was clean, spacious, comfortable and with a lovely view looking down the valley towards the harbour and the sea. Dinner in the restaurant was truly excellent and the staff could not have been more pleasant and helpful. We have stayed at many hotels on the North Cornish coast and, in terms of value for money, this is by far the best - another hotel we stay at regularly has better facilities for a rainy day but the room rate is more than three times as expensive as the Riverside's!'

Relaxing and Welcoming Stay
5 stars 5

'We were welcome at The Riverside from the moment the door opened when we arrived, until the moment we left a couple of days later. Checking in was the easiest we have ever encountered and we were shown to our room (Room 2) on the 1st floor which overlooked the river with views down towards the harbour. The room was well appointed with everything that you could possibly want. We took our evening meals at the hotel too. Service in the restaurant, as throughout the hotel, is marvellous. The menu is wide and caters for all tastes. The food itself is just excellent. Not a single scrap of food went back to the kitchen from our plates during our stay. Breakfast is of a high quality with a variety of cooked options available, and no wonder that it is award-winning. There are cereals, fruit juices and fish available for breakfast too. We had a relaxing and enjoyable stay here, were treated well throughout our stay and have no hesitation is recommending it to others and will return in the future I am sure.'
