Excellent food, wonderful views and although a little expensive I must say it was well worth it. We will be eating there again

“Ideal for couples”
Reviewed 14 August 2012

We had a family meal here which was good. The food was absolutely first class and the views from the restaurant and lounge were outstanding.
We did feel a little conspicuous in what was a very quiet environment. It was mid week so at other times it may have a better buzz.

“Wonderful - incredible service”
Reviewed 13 May 2012

The hotel staff made our stay extra special. When we arrived we weren't happy with our room so i explained why and they moved us instantly. The room was lovely, beautiful batthroom and view. Not quite as luxurious as the photos on the website suggest and it was a double bed which was surprising however it was spotless, comfortable and large.

The food in the restaurant was outstanding, michilin star quality and nothing was too much trouble. One morning we had to leave at 8am to be somewhere and they made us bacon sandwiches and fresh coffee in the lounge as the kitchen wasn't open til 8.30am. Perfect.

The pool and hottub were lovely. And we had the hottub to ourselves every day.

I would certainly recommend this hotel to couples looking for a quiet and relaxing gettaway with beautiful scenery and close to Fowey.

“Romantic Perfect Meals”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

Lovely meals - from starter to the dessert. Attention to detail made it perfect for us. We ate at the Cormorant every night during our stay with them and always had a wonderful meal. There is a log fire in the dining room in the winter which is absolutely beautiful. We had coffee in the lounge which overlooks the river and also has a log fire in winter. The setting is unparallelled high above the river with in February the moon reflecting on the water.

“First class experience - couldn't be bettered!”
Reviewed 8 October 2011

We ate here during a two day whistle stop tour of the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan earlier this month. Having been enticed in by the fabulous views over the estuary - we were warmly welcomed by the owner Mary Tozer and her staff and wowed by the choice, quality and presentation of food in the restaurant (and not forgetting the attentive but discreet service - also excellent). The food tasted divine and the wine list was suprisingly extensive - and our choices aided by the knowledgeable owner. We will definitely be visiting again and will recommend the Cormorant to our family and friends. Thank you for a truly memorable experience.
