Stayed here for 3 nights on a boys walking weekend. The rooms are good with the estuary rooms being those with the best view. However the restaurant and bar also offer great views, so you can enjoy looking out onto the harbour no matter which room you have. Not the cheapest hotel in the area but the super staff, always...

Hi, Stayed at the Fowey Hotel from Good Friday to Easter Monday. We had a horrendous journey down from south-east London 8.5 hours but got there and sat in the bar to detox and admire the moon over the Estuary before going out to the town centre to eat. The Fowey hotel is pretty unique as is the whole setting....

For a perfect treat in a wonderful part of Cornwall this hotel is unbeatable. Our three nights there were idyllic; the food is superb and the staff are efficient, friendly and informative. The approach to the hotel by car does not do justice to its interior, all of which has been designed with wonderful attention to detail. Spend some time...

Despite difficult access and lack of parking, it's worth a stay for the fantastic views across the harbour. Hotel staff were friendly and attentive, room was comfortable. As others have said, definitely pay for the sea views!

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
