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.

We were really impressed with the quality of food at the King of Prussia - not your average pub grub! Recommend you book in advance or go early to get a table as it was very popular on the two occasions we went. Would recommend trying it as its one of the better places for food in Fowey.

The premium room we had was clean and tidy with a good view over the river but was not really worth the £110 per night. The main issue was noise due to sash windows not sealing the sound out as does double glazing. I know that the hotel cannot legislate for the noise outside the hotel but music pounding from... More

The lunch of thai soup and ciabatta sandwich was enjoyable. The ciabatta is supplied from the excellent local baker. The view is amazing but unfortunately the service was rather cold and depressing that day.

Chose this waterfront pub after reading TA recommendations. Met up with friends for lunch on a cold December day. Table in the window with a lovely view over the Fowey estuary. Three of us had the fish pie from the specials board and the fourth member of the party had the duck. Thumbs up all round although we felt the... More

Really lovely, light, tasty lunch so fresh! Decent Cornish beer. Fantastic harbour views and quite exceptional custiomer service. The staff make you feel so welcome whether a tourist or an obviously known and valued local. Thank you.

Check in was very friendly and relaxed was shown to room which was very large with amazing view of estuary. The room was very comfortable and facilities were very good but the room would have benefitted from having a phone as there was no mobile signal in Fowey for us. We ate in the pub downstairs and the food was... More

Stayed here for two nights in June attending a wedding celebration. The location is right in the centre of Fowey with stunning views across the harbour. If you are looking for peace and quiet, this may not suit you as you are near to where the town's activities/events take place, particularly over a weekend (e.g. Mussel Festival), plus you will...
