We stayed here for 2 nights in September, the room was spacious and newly decorated with a comfortable king bed, there was a little road noise but this did not disturb us. The location is up hill from the harbour but we did not find this an inconvenience, and close to the main car park. Breakfast was very good, so all in all a great place to stay.

What a lovely place, the proprietors Max and Debs were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble....Breakfast was amazing cooked by Deb and served by the very attentive Max!! The hotel itself is spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Situated in Fowey village which is beautiful.....would definitely recommend this place ,well worth a visit..

Many thanks to Max and Debbie. We had a wonderful stay at The Old Embassy House. Best stay we had all week and we had been to a few places. Attention to detail was way beyond expectations and a breakfast to die for. First class room which was amazingly comfortable. All the best....Mick n Trish.

Very relaxed but safe despite Covid restrictions. Lovely room and bed was super comfortable. Max and Debbie were kind and helpful hosts especially advising us on walks and good places to eat. Steep walk back to the hotel but all restaurants very close by on foot. Fowey is a lovely town.
