We stay here at the end of March as part of a week in Cornwall staying in 3 different places. Our 2 nights here were truly superb, the views from the room were stunning, even if the room itself was a little small, we didn't notice it's size once we'd opened the curtains and could gaze at the vista while...

This is an excellent hotel perched up on the cliff side and I have now stopped here a couple of times whilst on business. In partiular, the first trip I arrived late, was the only guest, but the hotel volunteered to keep the chef on for me which was going beyond the call. I woke up the following morning to... More

We booked the Comorant as the website seemed very enticing and we like the Fowey area. On arrival we were confronted with the 1 in 2 drive up to the car park which we gingerly ascended with some trepidation. The welcome was ok but nothing special and the rooms are very boxy (travelodge style) and the bathroom was miniscule. However... More

Thank you for writing a review, and for saying how much you enjoyed our food, and your stay in general. I am very sorry indeed that there were some aspects of your stay that you did not enjoy.

We arrived in the dark and the normal access roads to the hotel car park were flooded. We were instructed to park at the back of the hotel until the water had cleared, and received a very warm welcome from Russell. The rooms were a comfortable size with lovely bed linen, thick towels and a nice touch of home-made biscuits... More

Wonderful little hotel just outside of Fowey, very comfortable rooms with great views of the estuary and the cornish countryside. The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us, the cocktail bar was great for pre dinner drinks and the lounge was a extremely comfortable for post dinner coffees and chatting. The food at this hotel is truly... More

We arrived at the hotel a bit early but this wasn't a problem, we were soon booked in and shown to our room. We had a lovely room with beautiful views across the river, the bed was comfy, and the room was tastefully decorated and had lovely bedding & towels. We didn't eat in the restaurant except for breakfast, which... More

We are glad that you were pleased with your room and the Hotel in general, but so sorry that you were disappointed that the Pool was closed for repairs. Your reservation was made through Booking.com and, for the time of this closure, our entry on their site is altered to read that our Pool is available only seasonally. We have... More

I have enjoyed this hotel only once before, and that was just an evenings bed and breakfast, with a group of friends. I was very impressed then with this Hotel, but never got to experience their full treatment, so when they emailed me with a super New Year's Eve Party menu I jumpted at the chance to revisit the hotel....

Took a bit of finding but it was worth it. We got a great deal on late rooms and arrived to find we also had been upgraded to a room with a balcony. The service was excellent from the start, the food was fantastic, and the view is amazing! Lovely stay :)

We arrived and were booked in quickly... shown to the room and left to it. Everything we needed was there, tea coffee chocolate and biscuits... a fully stocked mini bar which would be charged at the same rate as the main bar would. Towels, bed, hot water and décor all good.... the walls might have been a bit thin but... More

You dive down a steep narrow sealed road, typical Cornwall, to Golant village, tucked on a bend in the River Fowey, and right to the Cormorant, perched just above the river at the south end. A sudden islet of far off civilised calm and tranquility. The room had some space and a balcony, and a funny push button shower (which... More
