A group of four couples returned to this hotel again for a long winter week end and once again were made very welcome indeed. The service is extremely friendly and helpful and the food was superb and very fairly priced. A gem.

A retreat with a wonderful view of the river Fowey. All areas clean tidy and the pool and spa at this time of year very welcome. Excellent cuisine both breakfasts and dinner. Will return in the future and hope the most attentive staff are still present.

An almost hidden gem. Situated in the small village of Golant, on a cliff, overlooking the lovely River Fowey. Rooms are clean and have varying balconies overlooking the river. The superior rooms have a walk-on balcony with a table and chairs. Even in cold December it was a delight to sit there and hear the gentle sound of the river... More

Lovely hotel overlooking the River Fowey and situated in the small and pretty village of Golant. Parts of the hotel are a little dated but the stunning views make up for that. Hotel boasts a heated swimming pool and Spa which is situated at the top of a very steep drive. The food was excellent and all the staff friendly... More

The location of this small quiet hotel is what makes it special, overlooking the River Fowey in the little Cornish village of Golant and perched on the steep valley side. The road upto the hotel carpark is not for the faint hearted but worth the effort on reaching the top. The hotel has a covered heated swimming pool and hot... More

Aspects of this hotel are excellent. Wonderful location, great views from bedroom, nice lounge area and truly outstanding evening meal. The bedroom classified as a "superior" room and described as spacious was in reality cramped and basic. Customer service when making the booking and in raising the issue of the room was poor.

An amazing view over the river from every room...fantastic food, all cooked to order, and very friendly staff. You can't get much better. Ok, there is a very steep drive to the car park which, at first sight, is a bit daunting but when you have done it once there's no big problem! Our rooms was bright, functional and clean.... More

We had a wonderful meal, with very attentive service. it was difficult to see our way through the garden in the dark though - garden needs more lighting. (High tide prevented us using the front entrance).

Fabulous location and great atmosphere. I was transported to Vancouver Island as I gazed out on the Fowey (Pronounced Foy) Estuary. The leaves changing colour only added to the atmosphere, the drive to the hotel from St Austell takes you through some magical fern gullies which evoke New Zealand. When we arrived we were served cocktails in a very comfortable... More
