With Kit Davis in plac as Head Chef one can be assured that the cuisine will be excellent and on our first visit we were not let down. As always Kit and his Team served an outstanding fine dining experience at an very reasonable price. The menu and wine list will suit almost everyone taste.

The only thing which let's down the overall experience of staying at the Wellington is the accommodation it self which was found to be rather poor and outdated.

We'll done Kit, sorry I couldn't award 5 stars but the hotel is a little bit of a let down. We will definitely dine with you again but we will look for alternative accommodation unless reassured changes have been made.

Best regards
Richard & Gillian.

We stayed here last weekend, a surprise break, staying in one of the tower rooms. The hotel looks fabulous from the outside, and this is matched fully on the inside. Reception is a bit utilitarian, but the rest of the hotel is, well, fabulous. Well designed, tastefully furnished without being twee, very comfortable, with plenty of quiet places to relax in comfort. The staff were universally friendly and efficient, and seemed to enjoy what they were doing.
The food was simply excellent. The choice was small - always a good sign, I think - and what we had was cooked to perfection. It was also served quickly, efficiently and unobtrusively.
The room itself was huge, with a bed to match, and was comfortably furnished and clean, with everything working just as it should.
Outside, there is a garden and beyond that are a number of woodland walks, one of which leads to the Artists Chair - which gives terrific views down the harbour to the sea.
The price was low for the level of accommodation, and we can't find a single negative about the place.
We will come back to the Wellington in the Spring, hoping for better weather and a bit more green. We will probably return in the Summer and Autumn too, just because.
We truly recommend this hotel to anybody wanting a quiet, comfortable, relaxing, scenic break with the bonus of wonderful food.

We've just had a delicious 3 course meal in the bar at the Wellington. The food was fantastic - pickled pear, cambozola and spiced walnut salad followed by chicken and chorizo stir fry and orange cheesecake . Each course was wonderful. The staff are very welcoming and friendly, came to the pub quiz last night and had great fun. The beer is very good and dogs welcome!

Room Tip: We didn't stay so can only review the food and service.

Well positioned, clean and comfortable. Staff friendly restaurant excellent. Only downside was the restaurant was closed on the Monday of our visit which we didn't know about. However, plenty of other places to eat in the village.

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 :)
