“Fantastic Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

Stayed here for 2 nights with my husband in the Pridmouth room. The room was immaculate and well looked after and very comfortable. We ate in the lounge bar and the meal was very delicious, good menu and the specials also very good. The staff were friendly and provided great service, really enjoyed the stay. The Britannia is a great location for exploring Fowey, Mevagissey and the Eden Project. We both will be returning again.

booked via a latebooking website. Impressed with the 4* hotel. Absolutely immaculate - I would most definitely recommend a stay.
We visited the Eden Projuect for the day and wanted somewhere near to stay overnight , and The Britannia is literally just around the corner - 5 minutes drive!! Perfect! When we pulled up I was a bit unsure of the position, right on a very busy road , and not being used to traffic thought it would mean a sleepless night . Perfect night's sleep was had by all 3 of us , the sofa bed was comfortable too!
The evening meal in the lounge bar was delicious as was the beer and wine! A nice choice for breakfast. My only complaint was the coffee at breakfast - couldn't drink it!
Someone else commented on the air freshners in the room - we had to turn it off, a bit sickly! And if we were staying longer we would've had to sort the heating out , turn it down, it was too warm.
These are simply little things that are personal preferences and nothing wrong with the hotel!
The staff were very polite , friendly and very obliging!!

Room Tip: All rooms are immaculate! But choose rooms away from road!

My sister and I enjoyed our stay at the Britannia. Initially we were shown to a double room. When we told them that we had booked a twin room we were upgraded to the Carlyon room. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and we found them to be very friendly. The evening meals were very nice and breakfast was adequate. Our room was very large and comfortable. The only thing I didn't like was the electric room freshener. It smelt so bad that the first thing I did when we walked into the room was switch it off. Problem solved. There was a lot of traffic noise throughout the night as well,

Stayed at the Britannia Inn last week. There are only around 5 rooms. Te one I was allocated as huge - around 25 feet by 12 feet. The rooms have all been recently refurbished in a very modern style and are very comfortable. All the staff are welcoming and solicitous of your needs. I ate in the restaurant 4 out of the. 5 days. Each meal was very nice and I couldn't fault it. He hotel also has free wifi so hat you can catch up on emails etc in the evening. Very good place to stay if you are on business and looking for somewhere in the area.

Just returned after a lovely nights stay at the Britannia, room was lovely, loads of space, sofa bed and travel cot fitted in with plenty of room. Very tidy rooms, lovely en-suite. Evenng meal was lovely, staff were incredibly friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was also fantastic. All round could not fault a single thing.

What can I say, my wife and I have just spent a 4 night stay (10th-14th sept) at the Britannia Inn and we werent disappointed. The Carylon Suite we stayed in was excellent. The food prepared by the chefs was of a high standard and well presented. As for the staff nothing was to much trouble and they were very polite. Overall Excellent and well worth a visit.

Room Tip: The suites are the larger rooms + they have a bath and shower combined
