I know the area. Fowey is beautiful, and I expect a hotel in such a wonderful position to make the most of it.
What I did like was the uncompromising attempt to provide good service by the skeleton staff.
I cannot fault them, but sadly, there were issues regarding stocking, and staff levels. I know this is out of season, but you should endeavour to provide the same level of service at all times.
I waited at the bar for thirty minutes whist the single barman went up and down to the cellar in order to find the right bottle of wine for another guest. Exemplary service on one hand, but appalling service on the other.
My experience in the dining room was the same. Superb food, appalling service, but only because there seemed to be only one waitress, and she was working her socks off.
- 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
