Although I have seen Golant many times from the River Fowey ( either on a small motor boat or a canoe) I saw it on land for the first time this Saturday. We had been staying for a couple of days, as we do each year, in Fowey and decided to go for a walk before driving home..... We walked... More

I visited The Cormorant Hotel in Golant early in August 2014. I was visiting Fowey on business and stayed for one night. I booked last minute and fortunately, The Cormorant had a late cancellation. I simply wanted a comfortable clean hotel for the night, but the hotel vastly exceeded my expectations in every sense. The manager and his staff are... More

The public parking at the bottom is metered whereas our car park is free to patrons, and... More

The view from our hotel window made the weekend worthwhile. We had a panoramic view of the River Fowey. As described on the website, the drive up to the hotel is very steep & parking is tight. Not a suitable hotel for those who have difficult walking as there are also a lot of steps & inside there is no... More

Absolutely perfect! Great room with balcony view over the river. Good choice on the hotel restaurant menu - great meal. Friendly helpful staff and this hotel is a nice quiet contrast from nearby bustling Fowey. Will definitely stay here again

On the edge of the estuary the cormorant is in a fantastic location but the hotel itself is in need of a makeover. The decor is a little tired and there is a strange mix of random pieces of furniture which are mostly shabby, but not chic. the Cormorant has lots of potential and needs an interior designer to pull...

A very quiet and scenic location that is kids free. If you want peace & quiet this is definately for you. Golant is not far from Fowey. We stayed in the Cormorant room and had a pleasant view of the River Fowey. The rooms are a good size and comfortable. We enjoyed a 1st class meal at the “Cormorant’s” dining... More

We stayed in the Cormorant Room and the view from the balcony was to die for. The room was a comfortable size and there was a great bath and separate shower in the en suite. Milk was provided in the mini bar and the other drinks were for sale at the same price as the hotel bar. The public rooms... More

What a fabulous hotel due to the location. Lovely balconies with views of the river set in a beautiful village. A peaceful place to relax, nice pool and hot tub. Comfortable bed, great breakfast. The staff couldn't do enough for you.
