Reviewed 24 March 2015

Spent three nights D,B&B at this hotel. We don't often spend this much but it was well worth the money. Brilliant location, very friendly and polite staff, excellent food and comfortable room overlooking the estuary.

This was our first time dining at the Fowey Hotel. We absolutely love the location and I'm pleased to say that the food was as breathtaking as the views! The Mother's Day lunch was carefully presented and the chefs are to be admired as are the very personable dining staff. Little touches such as the complementary gift for Mums are...

Highly recommend this place for relaxation and lovely walks.We go here a least once a year and never been disappointed.The food is out of this world every one comes away satisfied.

Perfect location with amazing views. The staff on reception are friendly and helpful but I found the dining room staff a little aloof (Jason was the exception - polite, friendly and knowledgeable).

... And a treat it has been. We were called a week before arrival, no sales pitch but it did allow for the extra special touches to be made ... Bubbles and flowers!

A wonderful location overlooking the Fowey estuary and the sea. The bar and restaurant have a great view, as do most of the rooms. We stayed in a lower ground floor room, these are enormous and have direct access onto the gardens. Eloquently furnished and decorated this period hotel still holds onto its heritage while offering a 21st Century environment...

Stunning views across the estuary, and very comfortable rooms. Staff very helpful, but a little overdone and formal in the restaurant. Breakfast was excellent, but dinner more artwork than cuisine. Personal experience was that culinary expertise took 2nd place to presentation. Plate was cold, and the food barely luke-warm and of a questionable quality and no flavor, despite assurances that...

This was our first visit but we will return. The staff are very welcoming, the rooms elegant and the food was superb. Our dog was also given a very warm welcome. The parking is very limited and a charge of £10 per night is very unusual for this class of hotel.

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
