We absolutely loved this hotel and I did not want to leave. The decor is warm and welcoming, the breakfasts were to best we had in our six weeks of travelling and the restaurant for dinner was wonderful as well. The rooms were delightful and we had a view of the grounds and the water which was lovely. Even though...

This place has only 15 rooms. It is very small. There is a bar. The barkeep was very friendly and made good drinks. She helped us with our dinner reservations. The rooms are very continental, small but stocked. There is no lift or porter service. The steps to most of the rooms are narrow and steep. The restaurant inside the...

I booked Boskerris for three nights as a birthday gift to my husband. Having read the reviews, I had very high expectations and I have to say I did not get disappointed at all. In fact, the hotel and its service exceeded my expectations. To begin with, we felt welcomed on arrival and we were given a tour of the...

Great place to unwind, this was our third time of going there. We first went in April 2010 when we were unable to go to Spain because of the volcanic ash. The rooms always look very clean and fresh. The homemade cereal is fantastic and if you ask for the recipe it will be sent to you.

As property owners and regular visitors in Cornwall we had never been here. We planned to park in the car park, have a walk around and pop back for and afternoon spent at this hotel having lunch and drinks. However this was ruined by a VERY rude member of staff running out threatening to have our vehicle "towed" away because...

First off, the staff are wonderful and very helpful. They will book restaurants, tell you all the best places to go and send you in the right direction. There is a fantastic map on the wall pointing out everything you need to know about the area. We had a lovely breakfast and some great after dinner drinks. Very relaxing and...

An exceptional balcony overlooks the Cornish coast; we spent a lovely evening sat on one of the many sofas and comfy chairs overlooking the sea in complete peace. Rooms are recently decorated with beautiful bathrooms and lots of charming little touches. Staff are welcoming and friendly, and although the tour on arrival was slightly unnecessary, very helpful - nothing seems...
