My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights this week (27 & 28 July) in the 4 poster bedroom. It is large, comfortable, very clean and the shower is great too. The b&b is in a fantastic location and the free car park is only a few minutes walk up the hill. Lovely hosts and enormous breakfast. We highly... More

Kind, helpful, enthusiastic and informative hosts. The breakfast is fried 'English' and was generous, calorific and rather oily - too much for us; the alternatives are a bit limited. Very homely in style & decor and packed with memorabilia. The four-poster room is distinctly nicer than the other two bedrooms - well worth the extra. We slept well (in the... More

I was very much looking forward to staying in this well reviewed B&B while staying with family in Cornwall. Due to a change in arrangements we had to take our one year old son with us. Having stayed in many hotels/B&B's since he was born, and having our own travel cot, we assumed it would be fine for him to... More

An intriguing building with lots of historical memorabilia related to its previous incarnation as the telephone exchange. Michael and Celia were very friendly and helpful hosts - Michael is certainly the one to go to for information, local lore and fascinating tidbits about the area. The breakfasts are huge but delicious, and you can always ask for less... if you... More

I'd thoroughly recommend this place for location (in the heart of town) and the lovely friendly hosts. Huge hearty breakfast was most welcome and set us up for the rest of the day. Only 3 rooms but didn't feel claustrophobic, just homely. Thank you, we'll be back!

I have just returned from a long weekend at the Old Exchange and wanted to say a big thank you to Michael and Celia, your B&B is a delight! I went with friends who occupied the remaining two rooms and we all came away saying that this would be our first choice for our next visit to Fowey. It is... More

We stayed in the beautiful 4-poster room for a couple of nights in August. The room is very spacious with a large bed and comfortable sitting area (sofa, chairs, etc) and an en suite dressing/bathroom - all very tasteful and comfortable. It's brilliantly located near all the little shops and restaurants of Fowey which is a charming village. The owners... More
