I have reviewed this hotel before but I think it deserves to have an updated review. It is still wonderful. The staff are very helpful & friendly, the decor has been refreshed & updated so the atmosphere is light & comfortable, & the food is fantastic. It is set just at the edge of the estuary looking out to sea....

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and in Fowey generally. Our room was comfortable with a wonderful view of the sea. The food was great and the staff friendly and helpful. The only problem we experienced was the use by a small boy of his tablet, at some volume, during the evening meal (8pm start). We complained to the head...

It's a real shame that my room let down the charm of this nice old-fashioned hotel but it did - for the usual reasons: 1. Soggy mattress that needs replacing 2, The cushions and throws that are entirely unnecessary except as window-dressing, and which every traveller suspects has not been cleaned. 3, Absence of good reading lights 4. Thin walls...

Stayed only a night but got a good feel for the place. Great gin bar selection went down well. Service was excellent. Views to Polruan and the estuary were stunning. Breakfast was really good. Downside is the parking, if none available then the hotel could really organise for you so one less thing to think about. Room 101 was a...

Great hotel, beautiful views, friendly staff, delicious food. Close to town centre, but steep hill to come back up! Beautiful sandy beach close by. Bedrooms clean and nicely furnished. Can't wait to visit again.

Stayed here to celebrate my birthday and upgraded to an executive room which was wonderful. The view from the room was amazing with two comfy armchairs in a bay window to admire the view. The bed was very comfortable and slippers and bathrobes were provided. The dining room had the same views over the estuary as did the bar and...

Although slightly past its prime, this large old resort hotel is perched over the extraordinarily scenic harbor. Rooms are large, well kept and comfortable with all of the amenities. The town itself is readily accessible and a great shopping and dining stroll while the hotel is quiet and set apart. Full breakfast is great and the staff are welcoming and...

We stayed here for the night last weekend and were very happy with our stay. The sea view from our room was beautiful, we slept with the window open listening to the waves crashing all night long. The location was perfect too, very close to the coastal path which was a stunning walk. The staff were friendly and very helpful...

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
