During a week's holiday in Golant we made this meal out a treat - and it was. The hotel is positioned high above the River Fowey with lovely views from the balcony terrace. We were greeted and made to feel comfortable and relaxed with pre-meal drinks while we ordered. Just a few people at a time in the light, spacious... More

Simply outstanding. Well worth its two rosettes. Menus are good, presentation and service are excellent. Waiting to be discovered we feel. Try it and see what we mean. Enjoy!

We were staying in a cottage in Golant and went to this restaurant for one evening. The food was excellent and the waiters at table were very helpful... There was a good menu and wine list. The restaurant overlooks the river Fowey. It was anexpectedly good find in the small village.

This place epitomises "don't judge a book by its cover". We arrived and our initial thought was that it looked like a suburban block of flats - all upvc windows and decking. After an aperitif on the terrace with the most beautiful view over the river we settled to have dinner. The food was lovely. Really tasty, clearly local and... More

Thank you for your kind words, and I am so glad that we did some things right for you, but so sorry that your sleep was disturbed. Our walls are not actually 'paper thin', and do differ in different parts of the building. In our experience, some folk are much more sensitive to noise than others, and thankfully this Hotel...

How you can comment "very disappointing" I just don't know. Let's start afresh. Here's a hotel restaurant that's remarkably different from the hotel, which I am reviewing separately. The chef has seen what Starred colleagues can do. He has learnt as he went. He has shown his skills in menu design and execution. Menus are short, which is sensible in... More

Food was of a high quality, well presented and served efficiently with pleasant staff. There are lovely views so you should request a window seat.

We chose to eat here having read the trip advisor reviews and either the previous reviewers were tipsy when they reviewed this or we encountered it on a very poor day. We sat down and thought what a lovely place we'd come to with a lovely river view. We ordered drinks while we perused the menu. We ordered our food... More

Now this is a bit of secret but one I am going to share. The food was outstanding and the views lovely. They do not invite children but a well behaved teenager was fine with them and we could not have been made more welcome.
