We stayed for 2 nights at the end of June. Comfortable room with gorgeous views of the river. staff were lovely and very attentive. Dinner was superb each evening and beautifully presented. What a shame the same couldn't be said about breakfast. A limited selection of cereals, a rubbery fried egg, watery preserves and considering we were paying over £500... More

We are so sorry, and really surprised, that you were disappointed with breakfast, and that it seems to have spoilt a stay that for you was otherwise a happy one. We always listen very careful to guest feedback, and try to improve constantly as a result of it, but have never had such a comment regarding breakfast before, and a... More

Just home after a weekend stay at the Cormorant. Very impressive in every respect. The food was exceptional, every meal was beautifully presented and delicious, the staff were unfailingly helpful and courteous, the views from all rooms are spectacular, it is extremely peaceful. The only criticism we had was lack of soundproofing from the other rooms which on occasions was... More

Beautiful little hotel with amazing views over the river. We had a cream tea here and it was absolutely perfect. The staff were lovely and the presentation was perfect. The terrace overlooks the river and it was interesting to watch as the tide slowly went out.

My wife and I were staying in Fowey and she found this hotel with an excellent reputation for food so we booked for dinner only. When I booked they insisted on taking a card and would have charged if we had not given notice to cancel.(24 hours I think) while I understand they have to do this it is slightly... More

It's very clear that the Cormorant hotel has been improved. All new double glazing. Swimming pool/hot tub. The welcome here is great: staff are really good, and friendly too. Rooms though must be the next upgrade. They are comfortable, and we overlooked the estuary, with an amazing view. But some elements - carpets/shower/furnishings will need upgrading to keep pace with... More

We stayed in The Cormorant this weekend. Eden Sessions being the reason we stayed in the area, and normally staying in the Old Quay House in Fowey. We stayed in the Cormorant as the Old Quay could not accommodate us. On arriving at The Cormorant we were overwhelmed with the smell of the reception area, quite off putting and distasteful....

The other half and I stayed here for one night for a midweek break. Wanting to make the most of it we arrived well before the 3pm check in and walked into Fowey along the footpath which runs immediately behind the hotel. The walk is a good one, high along the valley above the river and past the somewhat famous... More

We booked here for a well earned rest. It is for people over16. We had a superior room overlooking the River Fowey. We could sit on the balcony, watching the peregrine falcons, gliding in the thermals and hunting for food as opposite the hotel is a backdrop of woods with fields surrounding it. It is also a sun trap. We... More

I spent a week here with a group of friends. We were looked after with friendly consideration. All the rooms look out over the River Fowey and were clean and spacious. The food is superb; dinners were as beautiful as they were delicious. Lovely walks from the hotel; plenty to do and see in the area.

The hotel is on the steepest hill I have ever had to drive up, rooms are not large and need updating, views are fantastic. food is good but expensive . not easy to find. a very expensive one night treat.
