We stayed in room 12 for one night - larger deluxe double room with full sea-front view. Definitely worth paying the extra for the larger sea-facing rooms.
Great seafront location & beautiful views on sunny days.
Large bathroom & shower.
Very nice staff.
Sleek modern design inside, with nice thoughtful extra touches.
Unloading & parking a bit traumatic.
No breakfast service until 8:30am - everyone appears at once, so it can be slow.
If you haven't been to Fowey before, signposts are limited on the approach. The hotel is on the sea-front so keep heading downhill towards the sea at every opportunity (even if it looks unlikely) which will bring you round the narrow one-way roads to the hotel. You have to rush in quickly to unpack & get a car park ticket from reception (with any cars on the road stuck behind you) and then drive about 800 yards to the station car-park on the right. All this is a bit traumatic, but worth it. Pack light to avoid this again on departure.
The staff are very nice and make this hotel. Only slight disappointment was the breakfast (would be better if they started serving it earlier to spread out the numbers).
