We booked a room with a sea view which was fun. The hotel was well run and comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble and the staff looked after us well. Unloading the car outside the front door is somewhat alarming since you have to block the street to do so which caused a very grumpy reaction from a passer by... More

We travelled from Australia to stay in Fowey & we did very well in choosing The Old Quay House for our accommodation. Situated in the heart of Fowey & close to everything. Our room was on the 2nd floor with an opening bay window which soaks up the sun, with a perfect view of Polruan & Fowey harbour. Breakfast was... More

From the moment you arrive in the little narrow street in front of the Hotel until you leave it is just an amazing experience. Excellent food, rooms, service and just overall a magic experience. Better location for all activities in Fowey you can not ask for.

Lovely location, great food, super service. Just a shame that the seagulls are real pests. One swooped down, knocked over our drinks and flew off with a piece of cheese from my plate. The terrace is very inviting, but best to sit inside.

We stayed for 3 nights recently to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. Friends recommended we stay here so I booked it up. We arrived on a very hot sunny eve, checked in & husband took car to carpark - no parking on site. The car park is the furthest out of town a good 10-15 min walk, so be aware.... More

I last wrote about OQH 2 years when the food was OK and the view spectacular. Went back in a party of 8 last week. The view remains spectacular and the cargo boat duly obliged by sailing past the window but the food was truly excellent. Good range of choice for all 3 courses and a generous cheese plate as...

This is the third time I have stayed at this hotel which speaks volumes for its total appeal. It's a lovely comfortable boutique hotel in a fabulous position backing on to the river and with a dining terrace if weather permits. It is very clean with modern furnishings and a pleasing ambience. The staff are friendly and helpful and the... More

We recently spent a most enjoyable night at TheOld Quay Hotel in Fowey. While the tiny streets were quite tricky to navigate, we were thrilled to find that the hotel was right in the heart of the old town, yet parking was provided, which made for an easy stay. There were lovely touches at every turn - fresh milk for... More
