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

This was my first time in Fowey and my traveling companion and I stayed in two rooms at the Riverview B&B. 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

Had a really great 2 night stay here in July. It's not in the centre of Fowey but only a 10 min walk away if that (uphill on way back). With how narrow Fowey's streets are and the lack of parking, i'm not sure you'd want to stay in the centre if driving. Does not have it's own car park... More

I spent two nights in the River View with my wife and had an excellent stay. We were warmly welcomed with a cup of tea and shown to our excellent room. Every thing was very clean, comfortable and well maintained. The view out of the window was stunning and the breakfasts were great - large and of superb quality. The... More

We booked this B&B on the views of previous TripAdvisor reviews and were not disappointed. We had booked for 3 nights in the run up to Bank Holiday. Parking was easy on the road outside. The premises are accessed from the rear garden gate, and so locating the house was fairly difficult but there was adequate parking on the road.... More

We enjoyed our stay in this B&B, in particular we enjoyed the warm welcome from the B&B owner and the views of The town/estuary from the bedroom window. The breakfast was good. My only additional request would've been provision of fresh milk in the room to go with tea/coffee and bottled water. I'm sure however, a specific request for these... More
