We had a 3 night stay in early August. A great location in Fowey - suggest you reserve a car parking space. Friendly staff. Fowey is great - good walks in the area. Good breakfast and a good choice of food. Nice views for dinner. The room was fairly traditional in decour - fine by me but worth being aware... More

Booked a full afternoon tea with my wife for her birthday treat. I wanted it to be special and knew the location to be perfect (fantastic view over the estuary). Despite booking well in advance, and checking that we would be able to eat outside on the balcony weather permitting (I was told that would be fine), arrived to find... More

Once again the Fowey Hotel and their fabulous staff made our stay special. All the more so because we stayed during Fowey's very popular and very busy regatta week and despite the added pressure on the staff, their smiles and service did not waver. Fabulous

Stayed here for two nights last week and I could not believe the staff - absolutely amazing. The best staff I have ever encountered at any hotel anywhere in the world, really!

A great hotel, quiet location and only a few mins. walk to the town centre with good shopping, pubs and food. All the staff at the hotel are fantastic, nothing was too much trouble, clearly the management stratergy is to recruit the best people and train them well. Great views from our bedroom, bars and garden completed the perfect package.

Nice hotel with an extraordinary view, but hard to approach by car and with very little onsite parking. We had to pay for the public car park at the top of the hill, about a 7-10 minute walk. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the accommodations were adequate, but the view was stunning.

This is a great place with amazing views, the staff are just brilliant and it seems nothing would be too much trouble. Parking is an issue as it is in all these super Devon and Cornwall destinations but they deal with it by having someone approach you as you pull up and advise you where there are spaces. On paper...

As a surprise for my Wife, I booked one of the superior suites, which was wonderful. Fantastic views in two directions and even a four poster bed. We probably picked one of the busiest weeks of the year as it was Fowey regatta week. Even so, it was a wonderful sanctuary to return to and be spoilt. Breakfasts were good... More

Executive room lovely, view lovely, staff lovely, food superb! Hotel has bags of history and character and wonderful view over the sea! Nice garden area and view from bar. Service was brilliant. Ideal location. Get parking space too for £10 which is worth it as nowhere else to park in Fowey!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Made famous by the celebrated authoress, Daphne du Maurier, and ranked as one of the UK’s most desirable locations, the pretty Cornish town of Fowey, is a delight to explore. Clusters of characterful buildings, cottages and shops tumble down the hillside to rub shoulders with those stacked along the curving main street, which runs parallel to the Fowey estuary. The Fowey Hotel, with its wonderful views over the town, estuary and the sea is the perfect place from which to explore it all!There's plenty to do and see too. Shopping is fun, with a variety of independent specialist shops, galleries and delicatessens - with not a high street name in sight! The town is a most pleasant walk from end to end; to be taken at a reasonable dawdle, in order not to miss a bit as there are some wonderful surprises just round every corner.From here you can venture east or west along the South West coast path and walk for miles or drive no more than a short distance, to visit the numerous sights and attractions situated in this lush, verdant area of Cornwall.The Fowey Hotel is part of Richardson Hotels of Distinction. ... more   less
