My partner and I stayed for two nights at The Old Quay House this weekend - a surprise, last minute get away from the everyday stresses of life. Plus, we'd never visited Fowey before.
Three things initially spring to mind when I think about our stay at the Old Quay House.... service, location and the restaurant.
What a change to find a hotel where all the staff (and management) are enthusiastic, professional and friendly young people!! Quite something. From the moment I reserved our room with Samantha, I knew Old Quay House was going to be special. She was polite, knowledgable and patient! Then we were greeted by the manager (Alex..?) who again was very courteous, friendly and welcoming. All the housekeeping and waiting staff were equally as friendly.
Then there's the location - arguably the best spot in Fowey. The outdoor terrace was fantastic for breakfast in the sun, and early evening cocktails (recommend their Fowey Punch!). The view is ever changing and very distracting.
And finally the food... exquisite. All of it. What more can I say!
Our room was room 3. A standard double (I booked late!). I have to admit I was a little worried it might be a bit small and dark, being at the back of the hotel, but we were pleasantly surprised. A reasonable size room, large window allowing lots of light in, and a proper, full size bathroom. We particularly liked some of the little touches, like the rain macs, White company toileteries, fresh milk for tea and coffee and good choice of reading material.
Would we return - yes, most definately, and we shall also recommend this hotel to all our friends.
