It probably helped as the weather was absolutely gorgeous when we stayed for 3 nights, with another couple, over August Bank Holiday weekend. It was absolutely delightful to sit on the verandah overlooking the estuary sipping Bottega gold. The hotel bedroom was well equipped for the ladies, with hairdryer, rain macs (not needed), umbrella (not needed), unobstructed full length mirror,... More

Great hotel, charming staff. However ... My wife and I were asked on check in mid afternoon if we wanted to eat in the hotel restaurant that evening and we told them we would let them know. At 5.00 pm we told reception that we would like to eat in the Hotel restaurant, only to be informed that the Chef... More

I would like to thank you for your feedback. However, I can assure you that our Chef absolutely loves his job. The evening that you are referring, we were completely full in the restaurant. At the time you deemed the restaurant to be 3/4 full we were awaiting the arrival of numerous tables who had booked for later on in... More

While staying in Fowey, we saw the inviting terrace of the hotel from the quay area so went round to have a drink or two in the sun. Sign out the front said the terrace was open from 3pm to 5pm and pets were welcome (it was 4pm and our dog was with us) so made our way in. We... More

If you are a Doc Martin fan, or not, you will have a very hard time finding a better place to stay in Port Isaac. The staff were terrific - very helpful and friendly. One even came out on the street to direct me to their parking lot. Food is very good.

This place has a great boutique vibe right in the heart of gorgeous Fowey. We had a street view room to save a few pennies but the views from the back must be historic. The décor is simple and classy, bed was fantastically comfy. We didn't really encounter any noise even with window open. The outdoor terrace must be the... More

The Old Quay House is positioned in the middle of Fowey, close to everything including the river and its glorious views. My husband and I stayed in the Penthouse suite. The views from this room are spectacular. The sitting room overlooks the river, the bedroom is overlooking the street. There are 4 flights of stairs to climb to this room... More

Wow what a view this restaurant has! We visited with friends for a cream tea and the staff were fab- they exchanged the tea/coffee option for a soft drink for us. The cream team was delicious and great value for money. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Fowey :)

With 11 luxurious bedrooms, a renowned restaurant, the best estuary views in town, and staff that are always ready to add that little extra touch to ensure your stay is perfect, The Old Quay House is one seafront hideaway that you might just want to keep all to yourself. ... more   less
