This is a beautiful location with stunning view of the Estuary and the ocean. The staff are always polite and if you enjoy a gin and tonic there is an enormous choice including some delightful Cornish ones.. Nothing changes here even in the terrible weather and lunch was delightful .

What a great hotel. We loved everything about the hotel - view, food, service, room. The staff were wonderful, very attentive and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The food was delicious, very accommodating for a vegetarian and super breakfasts. I could sit and look at the view all day. We would definitely return.

We had a lovely, restful 6 night stay at the Fowey Hotel last week and it was brilliant as always. The staff are so friendly and professional even when you have a dog in tow!

The location of this hotel is beyond question, albeit the parking can be a nightmare. But the staff ensure that all these small niggles are smoothed away by their first class attitude and willingness to help.

My husband and I had a Sunday lunch here. We were told that we needed to book, which we did for 2.00pm. When we arrived we waited for about 5 minutes for any body to show us to our table. There were only two other tables occupied so not a lot of atmosphere. We decided to have the set lunch...

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
