Stayed at the Fowey hotel for a two night stay. This was our third time. The restaurant and public rooms remain the best attribute of the hotel with excelllent views over the estuary and out to sea. It is a very quiet hotel and perhaps could do with a lttle shake up in and around the bar with regard to serving and clearing up.
We cant help feeling that the hotel could make more of its attributes.
If you want peace and quiet and a nice quality of food then this is a good choice.
The inland room we had was adequate, being a Victorian building you have to allow for 'character' . We have stayed in a sea view room before and if you want to pay the extra it is nice to have the views and be able to hear the water if you are able to go in Spring / summer and have the windows open..
Location is very good for the town, very nice small beach and local ferries.
Pay the aditional £10 / night charge and book the limited parking.
Pre booking dinner also makes a saving, but we were a little dissapointed that there is usually one item on the menu that carries an extra charge. Given that we payed £25/head (from a 'walk in' charge of £35 / head) we would have thought the menu could be arranged to work within the standard cost. That said it was three courses and very nice quality.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Made famous by the celebrated authoress, Daphne du Maurier, and ranked as one of the UK’s most desirable locations, the pretty Cornish town of Fowey, is a delight to explore. Clusters of characterful buildings, cottages and shops tumble down the hillside to rub shoulders with those stacked along the curving main street, which runs parallel to the Fowey estuary. The Fowey Hotel, with its wonderful views over the town, estuary and the sea is the perfect place from which to explore it all!There's plenty to do and see too. Shopping is fun, with a variety of independent specialist shops, galleries and delicatessens - with not a high street name in sight! The town is a most pleasant walk from end to end; to be taken at a reasonable dawdle, in order not to miss a bit as there are some wonderful surprises just round every corner.From here you can venture east or west along the South West coast path and walk for miles or drive no more than a short distance, to visit the numerous sights and attractions situated in this lush, verdant area of Cornwall.The Fowey Hotel is part of Richardson Hotels of Distinction. ... more less
