We have just stayed here for 3 nights & the experience could not have been better. River View is on a quiet road up from the harbour. No designated parking but easy to park nearby on quiet road at the rear of the property which, incidentally, is your access point. Gill was there on our arrival & made us welcome... More

I came to Fowey to attend a wedding and found this an excellent place to stay. Lovely clean (and quiet) room and very well looked-after house. A good breakfast is provided which sets you up for the day. Recommended.

My wife and I were hugely impressed with River View. Immaculately kept and spotlessly clean, plus stunning views over the Fowey estuary that we're going to miss for a long time! The real bonus though are the lovely owners who were most kind and helpful to ensure we got the best out of our stay - Gill's local knowledge was... More

The views from the house are stunning. The breakfast was great. We were greeted by Gill and her husband in the garden, shown our room and immediately offered a drink. We felt as if we were staying with friends and had such a wonderful time we're going back next year. Thank you

Our first day there, we were greeted by Elaine, the innkeeper's sister, as Gill and her husband were visiting western USA. She was delightful and welcomed us with a nice pot of afternoon tea. Gill and her husband returned... More

The host Gill and her sister were extremely welcoming, providing a cup of tea on our arrival. Gill even drove us one day to the Eden Project 15 minutes away, so we wouldn't have to find the place on our own. Coming back we did take the bus and it was over 45 minute ride with a transfer in St.... More

I spent 2nights at Riverview ...my first hotel type visit since being widowed. A warm and discreet welcome from Gill who made the whole experience much easier to deal with. The b&b is immaculate with all facilities first class and the breakfasts really enjoyable with food cooked to order. Better than any hotel! Thank you so much Gill for the... More

River View was a really great place to stay and the little differences made the stay all the more welcoming. Landlady, Gill, is a lovely lady with great personality and character and makes you feel very welcome. The little differences I mention is that you share passage through the Kitchen area on your way in and out of the B&B,... More
