“Very Good!”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

We had 4 nights at The Wellington, the first 2 were in the outstanding Room 21.

Great stay, slept well and the room was immaculately turned out and well worth the £125 a night we paid for it.

The last 2 nights we were moved into Room 4, which apparently has recently been done up. This room is not a patch on Room 21, although a nice room it is not (in our opinion) worth paying £125 a night for. The bathroom was smaller than that in 21, and the room itself, whilst still a double, just seemed small by comparison.

Breakfast is of a high standard, Boscastle is a lovely place and this hotel is very pleasant to stay at.

Room Tip: The best rooms appear to be the ones facing the back of the hotel, we found there was more noise (bi...

We were made very welcome by the staff and shown around the hotel. Stayed in the turret room which was very large and well furnished with a nice bathroom .Very convenient to stroll in to Boscastle .We used the side entrance which saved some stairs and having to go through reception.Breakfast was very nice but on the small side for my husband .If you would like a quiet restful location this is the hotel for you

Room Tip: Turret rooms are very large and light with lovely bathrooms

I have stayed at this hotel many times and wholeheartedly recommend. Great hotel with superb food whether eating in the restaurant or the bar. Staff are always excellent and welcome you back like an old friend .....nothing is too much trouble. For that special treat stay in either the Guy Gibson or Thomas Hardy turret rooms.

We stayed here on weekend and it was nice. The room, although classed as a small, was very good sized and clean with a clean on-suit. There is a pub and restaurant downstairs that are very nice (we sat and had a drink down there later in the evening) and you can’t hear it in the room. Breakfast was in the restaurant which was clean and very nice. The make their own blood orange marmalade that can be very easily mistaken for tomato ketchup! Which cause amusement between us and the couple next to us! Tad on the expensive side but we did not book walked in at 16:00 on a bank holiday weekend so we may have paid a bit over the odds. The staff overall were nice but when taking my card details one of them wrote down everything including long card number, expiry date and the 3 digit security code on the back so I asked him to burn it and let me just pay on their card machine (I get why he was doing it but he could have had a shopping spree online with the details he took!) and the lady that booked us in was miserable, you could tell she really didn’t want to be there. She was very accommodating like moving her car so we could park there and not have to pay for parking round the corner. Was good though. Would return!

Stayed here for 4 nights in June. The hotel has been extensively refurbished since the 2004 floods, with only the discreet high watermark sign in the upstairs (!) Gallery showing the extent of the flooding.
The Long Bar has been redecorated and made lighter with large windows and comfortable seating both downstairs in the bar and upstairs in the gallery. Varied and tasty bar food is available here from midday to mid evening, and very good it is too. I ate in there a couple of nights and enjoyed my meals. The Wellington Restaurant is magnificent, situated upstairs. Their breakfasts are renowned and praised by Visit England, with good cause! A wide selection of cereals, fruit, muesli etc with orders for tea, coffee, toast and cooked items taken at your table. The eggs benedict and the kippers were both wonderful, with a perfect hollandaise sauce to accompany the eggs. the kipper was one of the best I had ever had and tasted freshly caught!
I dined here one night and wished I'd booked a DB & B stay; dinner could only be described as magnificent. Fresh scallops, cornish cod, spinach, vegetables, accompanied by a perfect bottle of Pinot Grigio, and a superbly light lemon dessert. Appetisers and sorbet were included.

My room was small, being a single, but very comfortable with everything I needed and plenty of storage space. The shower room was also compact but well designed, with some lovely toiletries included and plenty of fluffy towels. there was bottled water, good selection of teas and coffees and cornish biscuits everyday.

The hotel is ideally situated for walking, a bus service along the coast or just local exploring. it's 5 minutes walk from the village and the bus stop. The coastal paths are close by and I enjoyed some excellent walks while staying there. I arrived by car and there was adequate parking for guests. Fortunately I didn't need the car until the time came to depart. There is also a lovely beer garden at the back on several levels, leading to a higher walk up through the wooded valley to the Artists Chair, a beautiful little clearing high in the trees with a bench with the best view of Boscastle Harbour and out to sea.

The staff are an asset to this family run hotel! They are friendly, helpful and nothing is too much trouble. They make you extremely welcome.


I was a bit perturbed to read how haunted the hotel is because I was staying alone. Didn't see any ghosts, but was woken up by something at precisely 3.30 each morning of my stay. Strange. The Witchcraft museum in the village is well worth seeing.

Room Tip: Rooms in the tower, if there are 2 of you, are a bit special
