“Disappointing”
Reviewed October 24, 2011

We stayed one night at Trevanion in September and were disappointed with the standard of decor and fittings especially in the so-called ensuite bathroom with its maroon walls and tired green and stained carpet. The lack of a proper shower - there was a bath with hand-held shower but no curtain or screen - also made bathing difficult. Unlike other comments on which we had relied to choose this B&B, we found the hosts abrupt and disinterested. It was certainly not up to the standard of other 4 star establishments we stayed in on our recent travels in England. On the positive side it is in a good location, has street -side parking and a good pub next door.

Stayed here for 3 days and the place was spotless.
the owners are the best. Well done Steve and Ali (and the Parrot)
the rooms are so clean and the decor was fantastic. We had the front room and it was so homely. Reasonable rates.
Anyone wanting to go here must do. We could park the car outside the house.

Room Tip: Front Family room. Also available for Twin Room.

We have been going to Trevanion for years now and go a few times a year/ as often as we can. It's a lovely guest house, with lovely spacious rooms, parking and just a short walk into Fowey centre. Alison and Steve are perfect guest house hosts - welcoming and helpful, but also very relaxed and easygoing. We have been to lots of guest houses/ B&Bs over the years and this is by the far the best and also great value for money. Book early though - it's rightly very popular. Excellent!

Room Tip: The best ones are at the front, in our opinion

We stayed here for one night at the end of our honeymoon, as I wanted to revisit Fowey, having been there as a child. A lovely b&b, the bed was comfy, the shower was fantastic, and the room was very nicely decorated. We enjoyed our breakfast; although we both chose continental, which was very nice, we saw others eating the full english and it looked very tasty too. One very useful aspect was our own parking space, as parking is generally very difficult in Fowey - it was nice being able to leave the car and walk down the hill to the harbour. Fowey is a charming place, and worth a visit - we'd definitely stay here again.

After doing coast to coast walk the comfort of this guest house was most welcome, especially a nice large bath, and very comfortable bed. It is in a great position we had lovely harbor views too. Attention to detail evident in every aspect. The breakfast was second to none, all fresh local seasonal produce, served by our friendly knowledgeable host! Perfect place to complete our Cornish stay. Thank you!

Stayed for one night but would have liked longer. The room was neat, clean and comfortable with a roomy bathroom with bath and shower and plenty of useful local info. It was located a few minutes up the hill from the centre of Fowey with a pleasing view from the window.
Breakfast was outstanding with an amazing choice of cereals, yoghurt, usual cooked fry ups with special touches, a variety of fruits including fresh strawberries and raspberries, home made jams and marmalades etc....... superb!
The hosts were friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Would certainly recommend this B & B. I believe evening meals are sometimes available.

Actually in Fowey which is next to Looe. A really nice home to stay in & one of the few to have some parking. Friendly hosts, convenient location, good breakfast & all in a large historic house.
