This hotel has two major advantages, the views and the staff. The view from the rooms overlooking the river are magical. If your room does not have a view then a Gin and Tonic on the veranda is not a bad way to spend an evening watching river life go by. The staff were some of the best I have come across at a Hotel, they were attentive without being pushy and all those we met, had a smile on their face and appeared to enjoy what they were doing (even the night porter). Rooms were clean and a complementary bottle of wine on arrival was a nice touch. We really enjoyed the food. Although on a BBD deal, most of the dinner menu carried a supplement which was a little disappointing. If you have not booked any parking at the hotel, you have to park in the local car park which is a bit of a slog uphill from the hotel. (we were there during mussel and ale weekend and there were plenty of spaces) Beware of the parking charges, they are not clear and £7.60 is the daily charge, not £5.60 as displayed. Really enjoyed are weekend stay and would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants somewhere a little special and good out fashioned service.
- 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
