Modern and contemporary hotel with very good facilities and service central to Fowey. Great views over the river from our upgraded room. Very good food and relaxed atmosphere. Late April was a great time to escape with fortunate weather, and a quieter experience. Very relaxing and would definitely recommend.

Stopped for a light lunch. We were lucky enough to have s table overlooking the harbour. The sun was shining and the it was all very relaxed. We both started with artichoke soup which was delicious, followed by haddock fishcakes on a bed of spinach, my partner had the Hake, which wax fresh and moist. The staff were so friendly... More

Just returned from this lovely hotel. Although It has a good reputation I also checked it out on Trip Advisor, always a safe bet, and the hotel certainly delivered on all levels. All the staff were very smart, professional and friendly. There are wonderful views of the river Fowey from the dining room and some of the bedrooms, the hotel... More

Beautiful hotel, the best bed and bedding ever. Really wide choice at breakfast. Fabulous views, attention to detail is exceptional. Can't wait to go back. I can't rate the value as I don't know what it cost!

We stayed for 3 nights and we loved everything about this hotel. The food was wonderful , the service excellent, the staff very attentive and helpful, the atmosphere was friendly and relaxed and it was spotlessly clean ! No carpark but the walk to the public carpark (10 minutes away, permit provided by the hotel) along the lovely Fowey narrow... More

The location of this hotel is phenomenal! Situated on the Fowey river/sea and right on the high street. Its a beautiful historic building that has been luxuriously renovated. The room was plush and comfortable and had a view of the river. The restaurant served incredible food!

I was booked into the hotel by a colleague due to work in the area. I knew Fowey, but hadn't ever spotted this hotel. It's a hidden gem! I only ate in the restaurant 1 evening and 1 breakfast, despite staying 2 nights. Room 5 was just lovely, the rooms are not cheap, but given the included exemplary breakfast selection,... More

We stayed in one of the de Luxe rooms overlooking the water. To wake up with the sun streaming over the hills opposite and sparkling on the water, with the waves lapping at the foreshore and walls below us, the oystercatchers and seagulls chattering and crying and the fishing boats going out to sea to catch our dinner was simply...
