This was our first visit to Fowey and we booked The Fowey Hotel on account of its amazing riverside location and the facilities it offered. Despite originally booking in for just two nights, as we were in town to visit a friend, we loved it so much that we spontaneously extended our booking by one more night on the last...

Our first visit to Cornwall, beautiful. The staff was very nice and helpful. The view from the restaurant was breathtaking. The room was big, but no view towards the sea. We regret that we didn't stay for one more night. Really loved it. We would like to visit Fowey and this hotel again. Heidi and Øystein

Wow what a wonderful hotel with lots of character! Booked this for my boyfriend's 40th. Really friendly staff, immaculate rooms & lounge areas. Our room was so lovely I could have cried. Stepped out through french windows onto a terrace with beautiful views. Will definitely be back!

Our second visit to The Fowey Hotel was as delightful as the first. The hotel has a wonderful grander and charm (probably most appreciated by the Jul-Dec age group, but still, my 13 year old had a pretty good time), and cited on one of the best streets in Fowey. Wonderful staff - so friendly and attentive (almost surreal), wonderful...

The Fowey hotel is one of best hotels that we've stayed at. From check in to check out all the staff, without exception, treated us as VIPs. The hotel is wonderfully situated overlooking the river with beautiful views from all the public rooms and many of the bedrooms. Our inland facing bedroom was large and exceptionally clean with a huge...

First the positives.......The situation of this hotel is excellent and the views are amazing. Staff are extremely helpful and friendly. Really nice breakfast. Lots of outside areas to enjoy a restful few hours if weather permits. What more could you ask for you might say. Well....It could be so much better with a few alterations and a bit of money...

We have just spent the Easter weekend down in Fowey at this wonderful hotel. I just booked the hotel by chance, knowing nothing about Fowey or the property and it couldn't have been more perfect. The views from the hotel are to die for. We spent most afternoons after hiking the surrounding hills, sitting in the Lookout Bar sipping local...

The location of the Fowey Hotel couldn't have been better, situated on the South West Coast Path with wonderful views over the Fowey estuary to Polruan and seaward.

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
