Enjoyed a lovely meal at this Hotel. Staff were welcoming, professional and friendly - nothing too much trouble. The views of the estuary are amazing!!! The Fowey Hotel has a very relaxed atmosphere with good traditional hotel standards. I understand the bedrooms and bathrooms are gradually being refurbished. The exterior is very impressive but could do with repair and redecoration...

Beautiful old style hotel, built in 1882 for use as a hotel. Fabulous views of the Fowey river estuary, well placed for a short walk into Fowey. Excellent food served in the restaurant, good choice on the breakfast and evening menu. Decor as you would expect in a hotel of this age but adds to its charm, could do with...

Our three night break for a special anniversary was made even more special by the attentiveness, friendliness and efficiency of the staff, for whom nothing seemed too much trouble; the extra effort everyone made and nice little touches to mark our occasion were much appreciated. There is a wonderful period atmosphere throughout the hotel, which is real, genuine and tasteful,...

Wonderful hotel, a glorious step back in time with charm and service, delightful decor, modernised whilst retaining it's true beauty, something many hotels are unable to do these days. Appreciate how hard it is to keep these old buildings in top top condition. Views that will take your breath away, great bar, do pre-book parking or you will have problems,...

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
