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

We stayed one night in the Old exchange in the huge four poster room, to find it very comfortable, warm and welcoming. This B&B is full of charm and character. Be prepared for an exceptional breakfast and anecdotes from the owner. Perfect central location for exploring Fowey and the surrounding area either by boat or foot.

We stayed at Foye Old Exchange for the last night of our weeks holiday in Cornwall, having found it just by chance we didn't know what to expect. We were delighted to find it more than comfortable and the welcome was very warm! We had one of the standard rooms as the four poster was already booked, but found it... More

We stayed here one night before setting off the walk the Saints Way (backwards). Great location in a lovely town, and nice, comfortable room. The owners were very helpful and friendly, and the breakfast was the biggest I have ever seen - it defeated me (but not my boyfriend). Great place to stay.
