We had a three night stay at this wonderful hotel over the Easter holiday period. We had a lovely room with a great view over the bay. It looked like everywhere had recently been refurbished to a really high standard. The thing that makes any stay is the staff and we couldn't praise them high enough, it was like staying...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 30 May 2016 via mobile

There is often a sense of trepidation returning somewhere after a few years when the experience was so good the last time. Fortunately there was no need to worry as the Boskerris was as good as we remembered from three years ago. From the arrival to the departure nothing was too much trouble, even looking after a relative who was...

It had been a while since getting away so a 3 night break was much looked forward to. A lot of research had found the Boskerris with great reviews and we had high hopes. From the initial emails to our final goodbyes we had such personal and helpful service it easily surpassed expectations. Friendly and personal emails to book (including...

This was an extrememly rare trip away without children and worth every penny we spent. We were looking for somewhere to stay that was friendly, relaxed but modern and stylish and that was not a large bustling hotel where we would feel like part of the herd. Instead it need to be big enough that if we spent the afternoon...

What an amazing place with beautiful rooms and food. A real hidden gem where the service could not have been more welcoming, warm and sincere. Nothing was too much trouble. We have loved our stay and imagine that we will try and get back as soon as possible. Thank you.

We have just returned from another blissful stay at the Boskerris, it is not just the jewel in the crown of west Cornwall, it is positively the Koh I Noor. The hotel is small and perfectly formed, their attention to detail in every aspect sets them apart from any other hotel of its kind. The decor is beautifully boutique-beach chic,...
