Bostcastle is a gorgeous place, which deserves a visit. And The Riverside was a great experience. First the little small things: the exiting parking is public and a bit up the road (may be crowded at some times); there quite some steps in the house (may be a bit hard to carry large bags). Good things: large and comfortable room,...

Breakfast was first class, excellent choice and quality and dinners ranged fom very good to excellent with...

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.
