Wonderful decor, quirky location, superb service. Small but perfectly formed. Heading back for a couple of nights late July

This is a lovely little hotel, comfortable bedroom, great views. The food was excellent. The hotel manager Andrew Chapman was a star and did everything possible to make our stay as comfortable as possible.

We visited in early June 2011 for three days.Once getting over the excitement of driving your car through the dinky streets of Fowey,you stop the car,unload and then park the car 800 yds down the road and walk back.The welcome was as expected,warm and cheerful.We were in Rm 10 which was pleasant without being huge but it did lack a comfortable chair and the rates you pay should really justify one.However a small point because dinner/breakfasts were excellent.Young professional staff,good timings between courses and the quality and presentation excellent.We did not feel the need to eat out anywhere else after the first night.My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the local countryside was an added bonus.

Room Tip: Book early and get a sea view room.

Stayed on top floor in room 10 which was very well maintained and comfortable. Up 2 flights of stairs at the top of the hotel - had a great side view overlooking the estuary. Lovely big bath and shower - could have done with a shelf in bathroom. Bed quite good - maybe needs a slightly thicker mattress. No car parking at the hotel - so bags are dropped at the door and then car park about about 800m flat walk - no problem for us at all and car parking fee is paid by the hotel.

Room Tip: Well worth paying extra for a lovely river view

This is only a review of the restaurant as we didn't stay there.

A lovely, stylish restaurant with glorious views over the Fowey River. Food was delicious and imaginative and staff were friendly but professional. We look forward to returning again when we next holiday in Fowey.
