Yes the views over the River Fowey are spectacular. It is a delight just to watch from the balcony as the tide comes in floating the moored boats. Food is very good, local, varied, pleasant on the plate and in the mouth. The lounge and restaurant are smart and welcoming places, again with those views. Rooms are fine and clean.... More

We had a delightful 3 night stay over the August Bank holiday at the Cormorant. Our room was delightful with a Juliet balcony and wonderful river view. Dinner on all three nights was extremely good and worthy of a Michelin star. But best of all were the delightful, friendly and helpful staff who were outstanding and a credit to the... More

Great location, hard to find and Yes, the road is steep, but who cares! Upon arrival Lee was fantastic, great guy! Such a laugh, polite and attentive and made us feel welcome. When we got to our room this was clean and well presented with a balcony facing the Marina (what more can you ask for???????????) we had a lovely... More

Having seen some pretty scathing reviews focussing on cleanliness and ageing decor I'd have to disagree - the hotel is clearly an old building and some of the architecture reflects that but our room was spotless, the linen was crisp and brilliant white, the room and bathroom had been updated to a high standard. Staff were great, chatty and keen... More

My wife and I stayed for two nights midweek whilst visiting the Lost Gardens of Heligan, The view of the river from our room was fabulous, however the room itself was not up to the standard we expected. Very tired and dated, the smallest TV I have ever seen, with the worst picture, normally not a problem but this was... More

Revisited the hotel after a previous visit in July 2012. Really love the peace and quiet, the location, the view, the balcony with the superior rooms.The staff are superb in their attention and friendliness but..... The devil is in the detail as many of the aspects of the hotel are endearing but it could do with reviving or replacing some... More

Staff very nice, breakfast good and beautiful views from the rooms, but really not worth the money. I've stayed in Hotels half this price and had just as good a view and breakfast. Bathroom wasn't the cleanest either. Sorry. But it's time this hotel had a rethink if it's going to charge as much.

My partner booked this hotel for a long weekend, and having read some of the recent reviews I was a little apprehensive at the prospect of staying there. I am so glad that we chose to ignore the negative remarks of other visitors, as we enjoyed a wonderful long weekend. The hotel is a little dated in some areas, but... More

Stayed for a night a few weeks ago at this gem of a hotel situated in one of the most charming locations imaginable. Although the weather was not of the type ordered (torrential rain) this did not spoil the experience at all and if anything made us more aware of the excellent surrounding the hotel itself had to offer.
