Reviewed 27 April 2013

Lovely 3 night stay in Crow's Nest. Perfect accomodation with everything to make you feel at home. We recieved a very warm welcome from Heather and all her staff. Breakfast was exceptional and we were pleased to see the lovely waitress is still with you. Hope to be back again soon.

My wife and I recently decided on a few days in North Cornwall, and chose Boscastle, our last visit there being before the 2004 floods. A single friend came with us, and we opted for the Bottreaux, which has the advantage of not charging a single supplement.
On arriving, we received a warm welcome from Heather and John, and were shown to our rooms. Ours was the 'Crow's Nest' at the top of the house, beautifully self-contained with a comfortable bed and fine views over Boscastle. If you don't mind a few stairs, this is the one to go for!
The business is run in a highly professional style but with just the right degree of relaxed friendliness and helpfulness. Guests are given a front door key and are free to come and go as they please, in fact, you are made to feel more like visiting friends than guests. There is an 'honesty bar' which is available at any time, and the breakfasts are first class, with plenty of choice, and served in a light, pleasant dining room.
If you want a comfortable stay in a friendly location and excellent value for money (we had four nights for the price of three), you won't do better than the Bottreaux.

Having stayed at the Bottreaux Hotel last april,a return visit was a must,staying for 6 nights in the Crows Nest was so warm and cosy a lovely room with views over Boscastle. Heather and John are perfect hosts and Kim makes a perfect breakfast and even tried out Hogs Pudding for me to try to add to the menu. A lovely hotel where nothing is too much trouble for anyone working there. I would recommend it to anyone. Well worth a visit. The bed in the crows nest is the best bed i have ever slept in as well a perfect nights sleep .Thank you to everyone involved in making my stay perfect for me, see you again soon. Big hugs and love Alan

We spent 3 nights at this lovely hotel in February. We had booked The Crow's Nest which was very cosy with stunning views over Boscastle. Heather and John were perfect hosts and the breakfast were really good. Nothing was too much trouble and the dinining room was lovely and modern with local art on the walls. The honesty bar was a delight (although we didn't partake!) A fully stocked bar with a lovely lounge area. The room was well equiped and so clean! Very comfortable extra large bed which was lovely as we are both quite tall. My only little criticism would be the shower which may need replacing as the power wasn't great. A perfect spot to explore Boscastle and the surrounding area. Hope to visit again very soon.

We stayed for just the one evening but the welcome, standard of room and breakfast the following morning convinced us to return.
An excellent choice for short or long breaks with some great offers for multi night stays.
Well situated for evening meals as The Napoleon pub is just next door.
A great find.

We stayed here 2 years ago, and it's just as good as before...comfortable room and excellent breakfast with great service. The Napoleon pub next door does very good food and drink, and Boscastle is well situated for walking the coastal path.
Hopefully we'll be back!

We have always had William as our room which comfortably furnished with all the normal necessities being on hand.
Breakfast will make sure your are well satisfied for most of the day and very pleasantly served.
