A Luxury Boutique Hotel in Cornwall- 2012 winner of a Cesar Award from the Good Hotel Guide - Best Hotel in Cornwall, Wind your way through the narrow streets of Fowey, passing cafés and pubs, boutiques and galleries and catch a glimpse of boats bobbing in the estuary. Breathe in a lungful of fresh sea air and you'll immediately start to feel relaxed. Pull up outside a whitewashed Victorian building and discover that what was once a refuge for seamen is now The Old Quay House, a boutique luxury hotel and a modern-day refuge from the stresses of daily life. With 11 luxurious bedrooms, a renowned restaurant, the best estuary views in town, and staff that are always ready to add that little extra touch to ensure your stay is perfect, The Old Quay House is one seafront hideaway that you might just want to keep all to yourself.

We booked a two night stay via Travelzoo for the period between Christmas and New Year, which suited us since we'd been in the area visiting my parents for Christmas. Our room was lovely and spacious, likewise the bathroom - the White Company toiletries were a nice touch.

SUPER HOTELfor a child free break. Fantastic area with lots of places to visit and walk. Weather this year was very good which prompted a better firework display on the stroke of midnight on the 31st. December 2018.

Are you dog friendly?
Sorry no idea - I suspect they may not be as they're firmly positioned as an upmarket boutique hotel, so can only suggest you call them to ask

Has anyone stayed in a classic street side room and was it okay?
Street side rooms are quiet during the night but because of such narrow streets in Fowey, service vehicles have to come early in the morning to avoid blocking the roads when ordinary traffic comes. This causes some noise but I can't see it being a problem.
