Thank you for your review of your recent stay at the safe harbour, and all the good points you mention. The upstairs dining room is our breakfast room where you ate on the days you stayed with us and does not double up as a dining area. The Wi-Fi reception is as good as we can get it in our... More

This was a comfortable stay in a hotel that has no pretension to being grand, yet it made us feel so welcome. Rooms are very clean and comfortable, food is very good - portions ....... and a great location in town. But beware the walk back up the hill at the end of the day! Hope to visit again.

We stayed for two nights at this hotel, located close to most things and with views over the village and river. While being hard to navigate sometimes with twists and turns, once found our room was well appointed and attractive, in fact so pretty my wife wanted to photograph it. Parking is on site around the back. The staff were... More

Many thanks for your review of the safe harbour and your time spent with us. Sorry to hear your dining experience with us did not come up to expectations, you are right in your assumption of your waitress for the night, we do have a apprentice working for us, who is fairly new, I can only assume that if you...

Spent a couple of nights here, and it worked out well. Parking on site, which can be generally difficult in Fowey. Building is quite tricky to navigate if you have a suitcase, but the place is quirky and this adds to the charm. View from the room was great, showing the church and harbour. Although the room was on the... More

We stayed at the charming Safe Harbour for three nights over the Easter break. The room (5), had lovely views over the harbour and town. We ate there for two of the nights the food was fresh and really tasty. We particularly found the crab ravioli really nice. The breakfasts were really good too. The staff at the Safe Harbour...

Had a wonderful time here for 4 nights over Easter. This is a quirky old building with characterful rooms and friendly bar atmosphere. The landlords and staff lift the experience of staying here with their cheerful, attentive attitude to all customers. The breakfasts were well cooked and presented with plenty of choice. I noticed a couple of elderly Italian (I... More

The bnb was great. The staff were super, the breakfast was good and very close to town!!!! I expected it to be very simple but actually was pleasantly surprised!! I paid 40 pounds a night for the room and it was similar to others which were twice the price.

Stayed for a weekend and found the staff to be helpful and friendly, and the room comfortable with a beautiful view. The kitchen was flexible when we said two of our party were vegetarian, and came up with a few choices that were not currently on the menu.
