Just stayed at the Fowey Hotel for a night on Saturday. It a typical "other the era" Victorian seaside hotel but unlike most, its bang up to date and doesn't just rely on its heritage to survive. We managed to park the car (even though we didn't book it in advance which seeing the "reserved for notices I guess we should have). I've read some of the reviews which mention parking charges (maybe this is the case high season) but it was free for the night. The receptionist was chirpy and helpful. The room was tucked round the back of the hotel (c'est la vie, we booked late!) (room 110 for ref) Massive bed (sooooo comfortable), spotless throughout, quirky bathroom up at highlevel. The decor is modern, clean but with a few nods to the period (contemporary chandeliers in the room, Victorian (yet modern) bathroom suite etc) The evening dinner was amazing! Absolutely delicious! Breakfast was just as good, very cheerful (how are you, did you have a good night?) lady serving us. Seriously delicious cooked brekkie along with buffet cold help yourself. To top it all the low morning sun streamed into the dining room and the view to the village opposite over the bay is something a film would be proud of. Had a lovely walk up to St Catherine Castle first thing. Really can't fault the place, its immaculate, friendly and shows other hotel in the UK how it should be done. We're planning to visit the other 3 hotels in the group after this stay.
- 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
