We recently stayed for 2 nights on the Hotel websites winter deal. I really cannot fault this hotel. All the staff seemed genuinely friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We live in London and dine out regularly, and found the hotel restaurant to be as good as many of the capital restaurants that we frequent. We could not fault...

A quaint, old fashioned hotel in a truly stunning location. Pet friendly which was perfect for me and the pooch. Fabulous outdoor areas / gardens / beach access, with polite and courteous staff. The decor is sadly looking worn and in need of some basic tlc. -big stains on staircase carpets are not quaint or at all appealing. Room service...

I always feel like I'm in an Agatha Christie storyline when I arrive. Delightful staff nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast and dinner excellent quality. Lovely views and surroundings, the best spot in Fowey. Parking a bit limited.

Just had the most relaxing weekend, stunning sea views (especially from the large picture windows in the Gin bar), lovely staff and food to die for. I loved it and will definitely be back. Would recommend you book a parking space to ensure a stress free arrival.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Made famous by the celebrated authoress, Daphne du Maurier, and ranked as one of the UK’s most desirable locations, the pretty Cornish town of Fowey, is a delight to explore. Clusters of characterful buildings, cottages and shops tumble down the hillside to rub shoulders with those stacked along the curving main street, which runs parallel to the Fowey estuary. The Fowey Hotel, with its wonderful views over the town, estuary and the sea is the perfect place from which to explore it all!There's plenty to do and see too. Shopping is fun, with a variety of independent specialist shops, galleries and delicatessens - with not a high street name in sight! The town is a most pleasant walk from end to end; to be taken at a reasonable dawdle, in order not to miss a bit as there are some wonderful surprises just round every corner.From here you can venture east or west along the South West coast path and walk for miles or drive no more than a short distance, to visit the numerous sights and attractions situated in this lush, verdant area of Cornwall.The Fowey Hotel is part of Richardson Hotels of Distinction. ... more   less
