“Very nice, good access to Tintagel and other sites”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Our room was very clean and comfortable, and rather roomy for a British hotel! The food was also excellent. I had read reviews on Hotels.com and Trip Advisor that mentioned the quality of the restaurant. Unfortunately, either they didn't mention the level of formality (and level of price) or I missed it. Basically, the restaurant was much classier than we are - we should have eaten at the bar instead! However, it was delicious, if a bit more formal than the places we normally frequent, particularly following a day of climbing the cliffs in Cornwall!

Stayed for 2 nights for husbands birthday, just us and the dog who was made very welcome with dog towel, bowl and biscuit left in the room which was a lovely touch. We stayed in room 14 in the turret which has great big windows all round, a real sense of history, huge bed and nice en suite with separate shower and bath. The staff at the hotel were fantastic and always so helpful, the food was superb - we had the set dinner in the restaurant which whilst meant to be 3 courses was actually 5 as little extras were brought between meals. I'm coeliac so allergic to gluten but nothing was too much trouble. Food was pricey but excellent so felt good value. Location is great being right down the bottom near the harbour and shops. Beautiful village.
Would definitely stay again and would recommend.

JSWellington, Owner at The Wellington Hotel, responded to this review, 6 May 2014
Thanks for your review. We read every review whether positive or not and, although we do not respond to each one, we appreciate the feedback. Our daughter is Coeliac and we understand the difficulties associated with eating out. We are therefore working hard at being able to offer one of the best gluten free menus in Cornwall. Our use of freshly cooked local produce means that we can cater for most dietary requirements on the day. However, with a bit of notice, our Chef will happily provide something special - as often requested by my daughter!

My wife treated me to a stay at The Wellington for my birthday in April, we have visited Boscastle many times, staying often in the vicinity, this was our first time at The Wellington. We shall certainly be returning.
All of the staff were friendly and welcoming, but not in the least overbearing, the room was one of the best I have ever stayed in, (at the top of the turret) and the food was superb.
We both felt thoroughly spoiled and welcome at this lovely comfortable hotel.

I spent one night at The Wellington on my way through Boscastle on the wonderful South West Coast Path. After 14 dramatic, muddy and challenging miles it was the perfect destination for some much needed comfort and relaxation. The welcome is warm, the ambience is historic, the facilities modern, the food excellent [even for a vegetarian] and the staff very friendly and helpful.
I would recommend this hotel without reservation if you are looking for a reasonably priced hotel in a[n] historic location on the rugged coast of north Cornwall.

The Wellington is a well run, very friendly hotel. We have just spent a lovely weekend there and it was the best weather of the year so far. The staff are lovely and friendly and they made us very welcome. Breakfast was very nice. It's a dog friendly hotel and they made a big fuss of our dog, Honey. I would recommend it. Beautiful little village and lovely friendly people.
