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.

We spent 3 nights here. What a fantastic hotel. Great staff, not overpowering, very attentive and knowledgeable. The food and the wine are top class. It was our Ruby Wedding anniversary and we could not have spent it in a better place. The views over The Fowey are breathtaking. The adverse comments we read before we went, in our book... More

We were looking for a nice lunch in the sunshine. Up a very steep driveway and there we were. Sat outside in the blazing sunshine and we ate two great meals. One a huge bowl of mussels and the other a seafood platter - a moist piece of sea trout, a small bowl of mussels, a bowl of calamari and... More

.......for its combination of peace and tranquility in its unique location. Accompanied by very clean and comfortable bedrooms with superb views. The owner and staff all appear to come from the same mould where quality of service is paramount. What a bonus also in being able to fine dine on the premises; you could of course travel for many miles... More

Spent one night here for our anniversary. It is in a lovely peaceful spot next to the river and a very short drive to Fowey. The staff couldn't be more welcoming or helpful. The food was exceptionally good - had a fantastic meal, the best for a long, long time. We would definitely recommend this hotel to couples and will... More

We weren't staying here but popped in for a light Sunday lunch. It was super! Beautiful view of the Fowey estuary once we had climbed the hill (it is not too onerous - makes lunch worth it). Settled at a table surrounded by absolute peace we shared a seafood and shellfish starter which was great value for all it offered;... More

Have just spent two lovely nights at this hotel. Beautiful place situated right next to the river. Our room had floor to ceiling windows which opened back to allow us to just sit & watch the 'messings about on the river'. Breakfast was lovely & good choice. Our evening meal last night was super, beautifully presented & piping hot. Dessert... More
