We enjoyed a very nice meal here on sunday evening. The staff were friendly and efficient and the food was of a high stantard. I had the seafood chowder which was very tasty the wife had squid which she enjoyed, we both had a fish dish for mains that was very nice. We have'nt been here in awhile but we will go back soon.

We had four nights there. The room was immaculate and we had a view over the river and down the valley towards the harbour (couldn't see that though!) although it was not difficult to see into it from the main road so beware.

Breakfast was first class, excellent choice and quality and dinners ranged fom very good to excellent with a decent wine list. The only let down for me was the poor bar area. Couldn't really sit in there to have just a drink and the range of beers on tap was useless.

Service was very friendly and highly professional at all times.

We stayed for one night at the Riverside and had an absolutely lovely time. The service was excellent and very friendly.

The room was delightful. Large and recently decorated with very attractive decoration. There was a lovely view out over the river and garden opposite.

Dinner was excellent and really delicious. The dining room was airy and bright and the breakfast was also particularly special.

We had a great stay and would love to visit again

The Riverside is a very pleasant small hotel, one of the nicest, I have stayed in. The room had every thing I needed, and the breakfast, was excellent, served by very attentive, staff. It is in a perfect, beautiful location, beside the river ,in the heart of Boscastle, close to some very nice pubs, serving good meals, (if you do not want to use the hotel restaurant). There is a bus stop very close to the hotel, and the cliff paths are within easy walking distance from the hotel.

The Riverside, lives up to it's name and is right on the river at Boscastle and is a beautiful location. There is no parking with this hotel and you have to use the public car park which is nearby and is free after 5pm until 10am. The Staff have been excellent and very attentive. You are given your room key and a front door key so that you can come and go as you please. Our room had everything that we needed and was very clean and there was a full pack of booklets and information on things to do in Cornwall and Devon. There is an excellent restaurant with views over looking the river and a further restaurant room at the front of the hotel. The restaurant is really good but you do need to book as it is always full. There is an excellent full english breakfast each morning with plenty to chose from. There is also a lovely wooden bridge which takes you across the river where you can sit outside to have a drink or a meal. A really pleasant place to stay.

Room Tip: We had a room over looking the river, so there is the lovely sound of running water. The rooms to t...

The Riverside is one of the pleasantest small hotels of the many in which I've stayed. The staff are very friendly, the room was very well appointed and everything one could wish for was provided. My room was at the rear beside the river, the sound of which was soothing. My son and daughter-in-law, who live nearby, joined me for dinner, which was excellent, as was breakfast the next morning. All-in-all, extremely good value for money.

We spent one night here during our vacation and this was one of our favorite hotels. The location is great and our window looked out of the stone bridge and we heard the water flowing over the rocks, a sound we loved. You do have to ring the bell to enter but then you are given a key to the hotel and your room. Our room was one flight up the stairs and we had a nice large bed. The restaurant is right next to the hotel and breakfast is in a nice room overlooking the river. Service was friendly and efficient. There are several nice pubs/restaurants you can walk to in the town and the walking trail is up above the town on the hillside. I would have loved to spend more time here, very relaxing. Our room only had the tub and no shower so if you want a shower, be sure to request one ahead of time.
