I think we booked the last available room and didn't regret it. We had a very pleasant stay, and the hotel's in a great central location. The eggs benedict at breakfast was excellent - the service was a little slow, but it was worth waiting for. The room was on the small side but comfy and the bathroom was spacious... More

We had a very pleasant two night stay in the penthouse. The room was large with fantastic views over the sea. Our only issue was that the bed was in fact a mattress on the floor. This is because of the ceiling height which is restricted due to the eaves. So if you are unable or unwilling to crawl on... More

Really comfortable well apportioned rooms. Dinning room extends on to the river, although a bit chilly at the time I visited (late May) it's great for pre-dinner drinks or lunch. Food is very acceptable using mostly local sourced ingredients, I even tried Cornish Gouda and Pastis (not pasties)....only down side is as usual in small village in Cornwall, parking is... More

On a short tour around Cornwall using boutique hotels we had high hopes of this hotel. We only had 1 night and so booked a standard double room, but this was so tiny it was a struggle to get round the bed. The room was so hot that neither of us could sleep. The heat seemed to be coming through... More

We stayed in room 10 a superior side estuary room.The room and bathroom had everything we needed and the excellent linen and bathrobes deserve a mention, but the best detail was being able to lie in bed and enjoy the view.We ate at...

We spent two nights at the Old Quay House. The staff, breakfast and room were lovely.The hotel is right in the heart of Fowey and the terrace over looking the river is stunning-sit there for hours and watch the day go by! Cars are parked a ten minute walk away. We had one of the cheapest (but at £180 a... More

On a short tour of Cornwall I stayed in a variety of boutique hotels. The Old Quay House was the most expensive but the least satisfying. I expected the room to be small but did not expect it to overwhelmed by an incongruous wicker bed head. The room had not been checked and I had to move furniture to connect... More

From initial arrival to drinks on the terrace, superb cuisine and then waking up to that stunning estuary view, I will never grow tired of The Old Quay House. Martin and his team make everyone feel like a VIP and at a very reasonable cost too. Well done and see you in a few weeks.

Glorious setting overlooking the river. We chose mussels for lunch. Not a generous portion. Not enough bread. Gritty and some with beard still on very disappointed. Coffee came with hot milk instead of cold requested. Hot water came in cracked jug with milk scum around the inside. This visit was not up to the usual standard. One other thing I... More
