Beautiful little village very close to "Doc Martin's Village, Port Issac. The Riverside was extremely clean and comfortable. The restaurant in the Inn had delicious food. We ate there two nights. Breakfast was included and excellent. The service was very good with a friendly staff. It was a value. I would certainly recommend staying here.

Arrived about tea time to a very warm welcome. Up the main spiral staircase and along the corridor to our room which was warm and cosy. Lovely views of Boscastle and felt very at home. The Riverside had just shut its restaurant for the season but was recommended a nearby pub which suited us perfectly. Very comfortable room and bed.

Spent a night here and definitely would return. Clean, comfortable, informal and friendly. The rooms are just right with a comfortable bed. The food is lovely, fresh fish at night and hearty breakfasts in the morning. The staff are wonderful. Location is perfect with long, spectacular walks on the doorstep as well as a couple of nice pubs and shops.

We have just returned from this lovely hotel after a very enjoyable three day break with friends. Our room was very clean and comfortable, and well appointed. The staff were all very helpful and polite, and the service and food in the restaurant was excellent. We would certainly stay there again. Well done Riverside.

Our room (and bath room) was on the small side. As an overnight stay, it didn't matter too much, but for those wanting a longer break the room would not have suited. Not sure if they have large rooms available, but might be worth checking. That apart, there is a pleasant outside bar area alongside the river and the restaurant...

Good service, quick simple inexpensive food in a well located position on the river and in quaint little town. Did not stay in the hotel but just ate at the restaurant. Allows for short walk through town and to the coast.
