This was the most disappointing hotel stay we have ever had. Before booking I had enquired about the the noise level in the bedrooms as having a good nights sleep is my number 1 requirement when on holiday. I was told the hotel was a good place to ensure a peaceful break.This may be true if the bedroom next to... More

We've been visiting the Cormorant since the 1990's and keep coming back for the tranquil views of the tide flowing in and out of the Fowey estuary. The food is not quite as good as it used to be but it is still one of the best restaurants in the area.

Quick disclaimer...we received a free night in the hotel after renewing our car insurance! odd but true! Because of this, it's probably not fair for me to comment on value for money as for us, this stay was obviously amazing value for money!! I do however really want to write a review based on the service we received which was... More

Cannot fault the hotel location, although the approach to the hotel up a steep and narrow drive can get the heart racing. Very welcoming and friendly staff and happy to help with the local area. Comfortable and clean rooms but the bed was too soft for my liking and nice to have some tea & coffee facilities to enjoy the... More

Fantastic views Friendly staff Didn't appreciate the plastic mattress protectors! The room could have done with a good dust and the dried flowers have seen better days. Housekeeping need to learn how to make a bed! Didn't use the pool as it did not look inviting. The best thing about the hotel is the restaurant; fabulous food.

Amazing location, with beautiful views of the river Fowey. Our room was great and had a balcony, looking out to the river, and had a huge comfortable bed. We made use of the pool and hot tub, which was very refreshing. We had dinner at the hotel, which was top class and superb quality. The service at dinner was impeccable... More

Stayed here for 4 nights with my teenage son and daughter. However, 16 is the minimum age allowed here, so it's not for younger children. My son loved the pool and hot tub, which was mostly empty. Most guests come here to visit all the local attractions. Only 15 minutes from the Eden project, 5 minutes drive to Fowey (my... More

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. Sorry the wi-fi disappointed. The wi-fi provision does extend to all rooms, but there are occasions, when there is much demand for it, when those rooms at the end of the building might struggle. A laptop or similar should connect everywhere, but smaller tablets and phones will sometimes struggle during times... More

First class. We chose this hotel for our anniversary weekend. Fantastic choice. Great staff, and wonderful service - including flowers and bubbly. Room well appointed with terrific view of river Fowey. Cuisine is outstanding; well deserving of its two rosettes. For a three star hotel this puts some 4's and 5's to shame. Take a look London!

The staff were efficient and friendly, the location absolutely stunning and the food was excelllent. The hotel is a little quirky but this adds to the appeal for us. The rooms have a fabulous view high up over the river Fowey, the beds are comfortable and all the expected facilities are provided.
