18 June 2015 marks the 200th anniversary of the Battle Of Waterloo. Soon after 1815, Boscastle’s hotel was renamed The Wellington Hotel and the imposing turret at the front was built to commemorate the event. 200 years later, we are again marking the event with the opening of our new aparthotel suites here in North Cornwall. On Thursday 18th June, the Mill where they are located will be open for viewing, we will have special “Wellington” food and drink in the Long Bar and Morris Dancers arriving later in the evening.
The new Mill apartments are now complete and ready for booking. You can enjoy all the benefits of the hotel and still have your own independence. They are ideal for families, dog owners and anyone who is looking for a bit more space than in a hotel bedroom.
Special Burns’ Night Dinner – Sunday 25th January.
The Royal Scots Greys lead the charge at the Battle of Waterloo. 2015 marks 200 years since this famous battle and, to celebrate, Head Chef Kit Davis is offering a special three course Burns’ Night supper in the Waterloo Restaurant. At £17.50 per person, the menu will include a complimentary “wee dram”. Click here to see the menu and for full details or to make a reservation, phone or email us.
Our new serviced apartments are on track for completion in early 2015. Located in the Old Mill next to the Hotel, there will be three apart-hotel units. These will sleep between 2 and 6 people and will enjoy all the benefits and services of the hotel, while providing a degree of independence.
Renovation work on The Old Mill is progressing well and the scaffolding is now down. The new roof is finished and work has now moved to the inside. We have uncovered many of the original working parts of the water mill and plan to re-instate as much of this as we can. It’s great to see the old building starting to come back to life!
The dates for the Boscastle Festival have been set for 4th – 5th October 2014 and the list of top Cornish Chefs gets better every year. Our own Kit Davies will be demonstrating his skills on the Saturday so come along a support him. Over the weekend, The Wellington will be offering some festival special menus in the Bar and Restaurant so why not come and join us.
