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.

stayed for 2 nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary in a superior room. Why was the room priced as a superior? It was small, ok a larger bed, but the bedding was tired and the duvet cover had a rip, the headboard was ripped.Asked if we used the mini bar, what mini bar!! No extra comforts you would expect in... More

The worst thing about the Cormorant is getting there! Firstly, don't use your satnav - you will end up on a farm track, as we did. Secondly, don't arrive at high tide, as the road is flooded; however, the locals are quite used to directing you the alternative way. Lastly, be prepared for a near vertical climb up to the... More

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.
