We used the King of Prussia for an overnight stop to Cornwall. From the time of booking to leaving the staff were always very polite, friendly and helpful. The building is circa 17thC and characterful and the location on the Quay is fantastic. Whilst loading and unloading weren't a problem the Hotel could benefit from dedicated parking. My bed and...

Spent one night here with a last minute booking and got a great room at a very reasonable price. Definitely would come back here. The staff were friendly, the views excellent, the room very decent, clean and large and the breakfast pretty good, too. Can't really fault it for a stopover though perhaps it might get a little noisy in... More

Stayed here during the SWCP walk. Had a wonderful room overlooking the harbour whilst it wasn't big it had everything you could want including a bath for an end of walk soak! Lovely bed linen and comfy beds. Fresh milk provided without asking. We left too early for breakfast as had a long walk to complete but, without hesitation, Simon... More

Stayed for a long weekend, arrived late and they could not have made us feel more welcome. Room (with view over the harbour) was smallish but perfectly formed and very comfortable. I have to say, however, that the bed was a bit short for me and I am only a bit tall. You have a real variety of very tasty... More

This is a lovely, clean and welcoming place to stay, right in the heart of Fowey with beautiful views across the harbour. The bed was the most comfortable I've slept in and I wanted for nothing. The staff were especially helpful and friendly and the breakfast was delicious. Highly recommended.

We found this hotel more by chance than design on a meander into Cornwall, when we found ourselves near Fowey without anywhere pre-booked to stay. Directed towards it by a friendly local, we were immediately entranced by the splendid view across the river. All rooms look out over the small square and out to the far bank. Our room was... More

Definitely a place to go for food rather than a drink but none the worse for that. You're wise to book as this is very popular but this is superior pub food from a kitchen that really knows what it's doing. Seafood as usual in Cornwall is great but their home made curries were first class too. Excellent for families... More

Lovely location ideal for visiting this beautiful little Cornish Town. Right by the Harbour side handy for booking boat trip around the harbour and if the tide is right up to Lostwithiel. The room we had was lovely, excellent views, well supplied with refreshments and toiletries. The food at the K of P is always good and we enjoyed our... More

Ideal base for a visit to Fowey.Good beer and good food,all cheerfully served by a great young staff.The rooms have everything you could need including ear plugs for the more sensitive sleeper ! The position overlooking the estuary makes for a first rate stay in beautiful,untouched Cornwall.
