Bossiney House Hotel
Ranked #2 of 6 Hotels in Tintagel
Reviewed 3 May 2010

We stayed in this hotel for two nights, and although it was nothing very fancy, we think it offers great value for money.

Positive sides to this hotel are, in our opinion:
- very good price
- large room with large bed
- friendly, helpful staff
- great breakfast (the best we had in five different hotels): crispy bacon, real fresh fruit, good coffee, scrambled eggs the way they should be

On the downside though:
- We though the central hall / lobby (not the room) had a funny smell
- Although friendly, they have a huge dog that 'welcomes' you when you enter the hotel; for people who dislike dogs, like ourselves, this is not appreciated
- The bed, although very large, was also very soft; my wife thought it was fairly good, I thought it was terrible
- The bathroom in our room was quite outdated en had a carpet on the floor; not very hygienious in our opinion

Conclusion: this hotel offers great value for money if you're looking for a decent room of good size and a good breakfast for a very reasonable price. In our opinion it was one of the better rooms in our round-trip through Cornwall and Devon, while it was by far the cheapest.

The moment you step over the threshold of this hotel and smell the delightful flowers in the hallway you feel at home. My husband and I, together with another couple, stayed here last week and experienced service which couldn't be bettered. The food in the restaurant was excellent,.Our rooms were very well equipped and the beds were really comfortable. There was a a cute little area outside the bedrooms with table and chairs where you could sit in the sunshine, weather permitting! We spent quite a bit of time in the bright, bar lounge which overlooks the garden. We did not make use of the pool etc. as sadly two of our party had become unwell during our walking holiday in Cornwall before we reached Tintagel. But we enjoyed our stay in this hotel very much and recommend it whole heartedly.

I returned to this hotel after a year. The beds were still comfortable; the food was excellent (they only use fresh local produce as far as possible); the huge dog was still there and the owners and staff were friendly and welcoming. Why the extra 'blob'? The downstairs gents toilet was working, it was not last time. (There is also a new ladies and disabled toilet on the ground floor.)

We really enjoyed our stay at the Bossiney House - it was full of charm and we had a warm friendly greeting on arrival and nothing was too much trouble throughout our stay. I also must comment on 'Angus the Dog' - a lovely friendly character.
The hotel is ideally positioned for exploring the coast and we did a walk to Port Isaac which included a stop at Trebarwith Strand (a must particularly at sunset - there is also a lovely pub there)!
I must make one negative comment and I hate to say it but the food wasn't great on the evening.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights after reading the reviews on here and we were not disappointed. We received a friendly welcome from the owners and their lovely, enormous dog Angus! Our room was clean and comfortable with a bath and white fluffy towels. Breakfast was lovely with plenty of choice. We didn't eat in the restauraurant in the evening choosing to walk into Tintagel itself (about a 15 minute walk).
The hotel is well positioned, close to the coastal path and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone for a relaxing break.

We stayed at the Bossiney House hotel for a long weekend in March.

The first thing which was very clear was just how hard the proprietors were working to make our stay comfortable. We really appreciated this!

We gained the impression that they had comparatively recently taken over a hotel which could quite well have been neglected in the past, and that they were working very hard to bring it back up to spec. There was building work taking place in part of the property and our room was spacious, very tastefully and newly decorated. Unusually, the en-suite bathroom had a bath and only a hand shower.

The main purpose of our trip was for a little walking along the coastal paths and the location of the hotel was very good indeed. It is on the edge of the village and only a few hundred yards away from the SW coast path. It is around a five to ten minute walk to Tintagel village. The tourist attractions in Tintagel will be covered elsewhere but on more practical terms, you will find a free cashpoint, a couple of small supermarkets, the usual array of pubs and restaurants, the inevitable "tourist tat" shops and a very helpful tourist advice centre where OS maps and local guidebooks can be purchased.

There is enough walking around Tintagel to keep the most ardent hiker amused for a few days but we were unlucky with the weather for part of our trip. We heard some wonderful views during our walk up to Boscastle on the Saturday and the following day the fog lifted so we could see them as well! We got a bit muddy and the hotel were fine with this. Sorreeeeee!!

The one negative aspect, and this is why we are not giving it five stars overall, was that we had a bad meal in the restaurant on the evening that we arrived. Clearly business in the restaurant was very quiet that night and when we complained about the food our complaint was dealt with swiftly, politely and discretely. Pork should never be served up red, raw in the middle and with red juice still coming out. We ate out in the local village the following evenings and all was well there.

Breakfasts were excellent and charmingly served. We noticed the starched and immaculately ironed table cloths. The food was local, plentiful and fresh and Tina was very helpful with local advice. The ambience was excellent with views over the gardens and the ocean beyond.

The hotel is set in extensive gardens which include a swimming pool housed in a log chalet and a small golf course. WiFi internet is provided foc.

All in all well recommended. Our hosts went more than that extra mile to make us feel comfortable and welcome. Thanks very much indeed for a comfortable and welcoming stay.
