My friend and I stayed here for one night and loved every second we spent in this beautifully modern hotel! Upon arrival we were given a pass to one of the car parks a short distance away so that we didn't have to pay for parking, which is always well appreciated! We were shown to our room by a polite...

Great hotel and great staff. Would highly recommend. Will be heading back for a longer stay next time. Room 6 was fantastic views over the river. Staff very friendly and helpful. The only downside is the parking but I can live with that.

Beautiful little hotel in picture book Cornish town thoroughly recommended. Great rooms service and food. Would certainly return in a heartbeat. Maybe not suitable for the elderly as quite hilly and car parking is a little distance from hote.l

This is a beautifully refurbished hotel in the middle of Fowey with a glorious terrace overlooking the harbour where an excellent breakfast is served in fine weather. Staff are helpful and the beds are very comfortable. The only issue is that parking is away from the hotel but that is a common problem in Fowey and it's worth the hassle... More

Great hotel, helpful staff, clean and well presented rooms. Our only complaint would be the street facing room we had was very noisy, with cars and vans stopping, offloading etc from early hours of the morning. Maybe better soundproofing would be nice, but other than that, a great hotel, wholly recommended, brilliant location, right slap bang in the middle of... More

A smart, but comfortable hotel in a great situation. No decent public lounge/sitting area, but super quay views from the bedroom and restaurant. The vegetarian options were uninspiring in the restaurant, but meat and fish eaters were well catered for.
