I also think charging for parking for residents is a tad mean.Because I have... More

The room was near the lift and had superb views over the river, was clean,comfortable and well appointed. The dining room was pleasant with no excessive noise and more importantly good food from...

Stayed for 2 nights in one of their superior sea view rooms (room 106) as a birthday surprise for my wife and I have to say I was not disappointed. I let my wife enter the room first and was satisfied with the 'WOW' as she saw the view and the wine on ice set on a table in the... More

We went to their lunchtime special two courses for £8 which is an absolute bargain. I had the soup starter and it was a huge bowlful with plenty of bread on the side, very nice. My friend had fish cake starter which also looked very nice but was not home made he thought. Our main was roast pork with very... More

Returned for our sixth visit - irresistible. We love Fowey and in particular the Fowey Hotel. Fond memories of romantic times draw us back each year. For 2013 we had a slight wobble due to the increasing number of supplement charges to the menu and the lack of remedial work in the public areas where the passing of time has... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Made famous by the celebrated authoress, Daphne du Maurier, and ranked as one of the UK’s most desirable locations, the pretty Cornish town of Fowey, is a delight to explore. Clusters of characterful buildings, cottages and shops tumble down the hillside to rub shoulders with those stacked along the curving main street, which runs parallel to the Fowey estuary. The Fowey Hotel, with its wonderful views over the town, estuary and the sea is the perfect place from which to explore it all!There's plenty to do and see too. Shopping is fun, with a variety of independent specialist shops, galleries and delicatessens - with not a high street name in sight! The town is a most pleasant walk from end to end; to be taken at a reasonable dawdle, in order not to miss a bit as there are some wonderful surprises just round every corner.From here you can venture east or west along the South West coast path and walk for miles or drive no more than a short distance, to visit the numerous sights and attractions situated in this lush, verdant area of Cornwall.The Fowey Hotel is part of Richardson Hotels of Distinction. ... more   less
