Staff and guests at the hotel have reported seeing three different ghosts – a coachman walking through the halls of the hotel, with the ghost of a little girl, as well as an old lady who has been seen walking through walls and closed doors.

Room number nine of the hotel is also reported to be the most haunted part of the hotel, with a section in the hotel’s information book dedicated to guests experiences in that room. One individual who stayed at the hotel left a review on tripadvisor.com, describing her experience in room 9:

“I was lying on the bed when suddenly I felt a really strange sensation and said to myself, “Oh my God, it’s here”. As those words ran through my mind I suddenly felt what can only be described as someone walking up the bed behind me and then a rush of cold air and then total paralysis of my body… I couldn’t move I was frozen. I kept thinking if I can just reach the phone I can call my friend but I couldn’t. This feeling lasted about 30 seconds and then as quickly as it came… it left me and I felt normal again.”

Brief History

The Wellington Hotel is one of the oldest coaching inns in Cornwall, dating way back to the 17th century. The hotel was known as the Bos Castle hotel until 1852, before it changed to Scott’s Wellington Hotel. Since then, it changed hands a number of times before being acquired by Jonathan and Lesley Scott in early 2011.

The hotel was flooded in 2004, and this flood caused significant damage to the hotel – fortunately, however, some of the most valuable guest books dating back from the 1800s were not in the hotel at the time. You can see where the water came up to via a water marker on the bar. Luckily, the hotel has now been fully restored back to its former glory.


With fantastic views right across Boscastle and some stunning features, such as floor to ceiling windows, tastefully decorated rooms and an oak-beamed traditional bar, this picturesque hotel and the friendly staff who run it are sure to make your stay in the captivating village of Boscastle memorable.

The hotel has 14 en-suite rooms, comprising of a mixture of singles, twins, doubles and family suites, available in standard or superior. There are also two double turret rooms, located in the turrets of the hotel, both named after previous guests – Thomas Hardy and Guy Gibson. The Waterloo Restaurant at the hotel was made famous when it was restored by the Changing Rooms team back in 2004 as one of their final projects.

It has been awarded two AA rosettes for the quality of the food on offer and it also strives to use local seasonal produce at all times, meaning that the menu changes regularly. Bread, sauces, pickles, chocolates and stocks are all made on the premises by the head chef. The bar at the hotel also offers bar snacks and bar meals, as well as a wide range of real ales, wines and soft drinks to cater to all tastes.

The hotel is also very accommodating to large parties, including weddings and other events, and also welcomes walkers, cyclists and shooters – they’ll even dry your wet clothes and give you a packed lunch! Whatever your reason for coming to Boscastle, you’re sure to have a magical stay at the Wellington.
