A good hotel right opposite the beach. Very nice room, pleasantly decorated with good quality fittings and a gas fire. Good extensive breakfast. Nice pool, Jacuzzi and outdoor fire area. A choice of two restaurants within walking distance but plenty more in the town which is 5 min drive or a 25 min walk.

Lovely location, right on the coast. Rooms not what you might think from the website. Somewhat tired and unwelcoming. Staff great, as is the 'heated' pool and jacuzzi. Breakfast is very good, with something for everyone. Distinct lack of restaurants nearby, but plenty of options in Cambria itself. Nice boardwalk for running/walking by the sea. Also, keep an eye out... More

Great location in this little town on this beautiful peaceful bit of coastline. LOVED having a fireplace in our room. It was an easy walk to a couple restaurants. The front desk was helpful too. Would stay here again.

The name FogCatcher is apt, it is one of about four locations on the drive North that has the clouds roll in form the sea, 10 miles north or south brilliant sunshine, Cambria is a bit murky. But do not let that put you off the town/village nor the hotel, just do not be surprised. We stayed here for an... More

We stayed for two nights here in mid-June 2016. Staff were very welcoming and helpful/informative, the location is stunning and our room was really nice. The room had a lovely fireplace, was spacious and clean. Breakfast was good. Also, despite being next to the car park and reception area, the room was quiet. Easy access to the beach from the...

We were satisfied with the room, the cleanliness (two queen bedroom), the wifi. The horrible thing is the noise from the upstairs room. We think that during renovations the tubing from the upstairs rooms were not at all isolated. So the result is a horrific noise when the upstairs people use the sink, the toilet or the shower. You barely... More

If you're planning to go to Hearst Castle and see the elephant seals, Cambria is the place to stay overnight. The Fogcatcher Inn is one of several facing the beach, and I'd bet all of them are similar in style and service, more or less. That's why I gave it three-stars -- it's average for its group. The exterior of... More

Stayed one night (8/15/16) in room 701 which was a double. First impression upon check in was poor and it went downhill from there. No greeting, no "hi, have you visited us before" nothing. I believe it was Rose who checked us in. Traveling alone with my 2 young sons. Was given a room by the ice machines at a... More
