Beautiful Location with stunning views and within easy walking distance of the town. Rooms are well decorated although our bathroom was rather tired with ripped flooring which really should have been replaced. Well stocked tea and coffee tray which is replenished in the evening if you have a turn down service. Breakfast choices are a little limited for a four...

This was the second time we have stayed at the Fowey Hotel, which has an incredible lift! The food was as good as ever and our room very comfortable, but... No shelving for soap etc. in the shower cubicle and no hang-over-the-door type of shelving when requested. For people of a more mature age with back problems it can be...

We booked a 3 night stay over the telephone just a couple of weeks in advance. Having phoned two other hotels in the area which were fully booked and spoken to one rude receptionist, it was a pleasure to speak to Fowey Hotel's polite and friendly receptionist. We were greeted by a friendly porter as we parked in a space...

Stopped by as a non resident today for traditional cream tea. We loved the ambience in the look out bar, attentive staff and lovely food with attention to detail. Made us think of staying some time in future.

Live locally; stayed one night. Lovely views, relaxing, welcoming and would recommend if wanting to stay in small typically English pub with character and a warm welcome and good food. It was good to meet the owner who was friendly and had good customer care. Peter who has worked there for sometime was also helpful and friendly.

Visited for two fantastic nights over a beautiful sunny weekend. All staff proved friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. Our executive room - 405 - was very well presented, comfortable and spotlessly clean. It offered a wonderful sea view and was a delight to stay in.

A great old fashioned hotel in a beautiful location. I was offered a sea view which I took and I'm so glad I did.

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
