We stayed here for a couple of nights on a recent tour of the West Country. The property is in the charming village of Lelant, where we enjoyed lovely walks along the coast. Our accommodation was in the Old Laundry which is the smaller option but ideal for a couple. Sue is a charming hostess and very knowledgeable about the local area. Breakfast is cooked to order, plentiful and taken in the main house, which is charming and full of artworks and other interesting bits and bobs! The other accommodation is larger, over two floors, we had the opportunity to look at it and it is stunning. Everything is based around a charming little courtyard with lovely planting and pottery (Adrian runs his pottery business from the site). Great local pub opposite and another pub a short walk away, meals available at both.
friendly reception on arrival.off the beaten track with good views across countryside.good selection for breakfast,cooked food good.very friendly public house detached from b&b rooms.very large double room,(could accomodate another 2 single beds and still be a spaciousfamily room), en-suite ,(shower no bath),modern & spotless.Will use again when in this area.THANK-YOU HELEN & STEVE FOR A VERY PLEASANT STAY.
Situated in a quiet village about 5 min driver from Hayles golden beach. The room we stayed in is separate from the pub with it's own front door. The room itself was lovely, possibly recently refurbished. We had dinner in the pub, we ordered a normal portion and a small portion of scampi and chips from the bar menu. If I'd realised how big the small portion was going to be, I would have ordered that instead of the normal portion! (Not a complaint by any means!!).
The breakfast was nice. The table was already laid for us when we got there with a choice of cereal. We were then brought coffee/tea and asked if we wanted full english. We took this offer up and the breakfast was lovely.
Would stay again.
As a business traveler I'm often faced with faceless hotels and hotel staff that simply don't care whether I have what I need. Boo and Matt could not have been further away from this experience. I was greeted with both warmth and friendliness. My every need was taken care of.
The bedroom and bathrooms are to an extremely high standard - much better than I'd expected.
I will definitely be staying at Bostrase again - hopefully with my family next time!
I have stayed at this hotel under its previous name of Riverbank a number of times and a few times as The Barley.
It seems to be a property in limbo. The bar which is the whole ground floor of the hotel has lost its way and you will eat your breakfast in an empty bar.
The breakfast is, however, very good and the skeleton staff are very friendly and obliging.
There are no shaver sockets in the bathrooms so remember to take an adapter for tooth brush or shaver. The promised one never materialised. remember to ask for the WiFI code early when you check it in as it is not listed anywhere.
The rooms are quite contemporary in style, Roman blinds over the windows and the decor is sound, executive style. However, look beyond the Roman blinds and the windows need repainting and cleaning up.
The main problem is that this place lacks professional management and has dropped to the feel of a B&B.
This was typified by when I asked if I could leave my suitcase for the day somewhere after check out I was assured that as I was the only guest I could have the room all day as it wasn't needed the next day. As I finished my breakfast I was then told a guest that stays two days a week only wanted the room I was in (even though the rest of the rooms were empty) and I had to vacate my room early. However, as soon as I went back to my room (9:15 AM) the cleaners arrived asking if I was leaving, followed by a chase up by the same gentleman.
At £80 per night,it is poor value & not recommended.
Very nice people, the breakfasts were delicious, and the room we stayed at was spacious and comfortable. If we travel to Cornwall in the future, we would hope there is an open room available. Close to St Michael's Mount and St Ives as well.
