“Beautiful and Comfortable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2013

Had a wonderful stay here a week ago. The hotel is absolutely charming with a great sense of history. Booked a superior double room which had tons of character including wooden beams and bump-out window seat. The hotel is beautiful yet comfortable with more of the feeling of staying at a country estate than a hotel. The staff couldn't do enough for us and the food exceeded out expectations. After a day on the Coast Path, we rewarded ourselves with chateaubriand for two in the pub. It was delicious and very nicely presented. If you can, try to hit Folk Singers' Night on Wednesdays in the pub. You can't help but feel a part of Boscastle.

We had lunch at the Wellington when visiting Boscastle for the day on a recommendation from a friend.

We went for sandwiches (crab & salmon) and both were lovely!

Good selection of beer & cider, friendly staff although a very strange selection of music (80's powerballards & love songs?!)

Great spot for lunch if visiting Boscastle :)

We've actually been to this pub a few times over the years on our holidays to Cornwall. Always very friendly bar staff. The choice of beer is good, and the food is really nice: certainly better than you'd expect from an average pub.
The other plus is that it has a really lovely secluded garden hidden away at the back.

Had a meal at this Hotel. Limited menu, and a tendency to be quite pricey. Most being £10-13 for main course only. Also drinks were expensive. But, the quality of the food is good. The portions are not huge, but very tasty. Excellent service. Lovely proprietor who are of French origin, and this is reflected in some of the cuisine. Limited parking outside the Hotel though. There is free WiFi. There is also well documented ghost activity at this premises (according to local books).

We had a lovely long weekend at the Wellington (accompanied by our border collie) and couldn't fault the Cornish hospitality. Whilst it is a quirky old building and very traditional in style, we actually found this refreshing and relaxing (not every corner of Cornwall needs to be covered in Farrow & Ball paint and ornamental seagulls!). The food was excellent - we were spoilt for choice in both the restaurant (lovely modern country house feel) and cosy Welly Long bar, and the Cornish breakfasts on offer were truly amazing! We did venture out of the hotel one evening, but there was no comparison - this is the best place to eat in Boscastle. We look forward to our next trip soon!
