“Brilliant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2012

My partner and I stayed here for one night in July. Everything was brilliant - I don't really have anything more to add than those comments in the past reveiews:

Four poster room - lovely and large
Michael & Mrs - Characterful, helpful, cheery, loud (Michael), good story teller and cooks a mean breakfast (I at it all...kind of)
Location - brilliant

Just a great plave to stay in a beautiful town.

Room Tip: Four poster is HUGE

We stayed in the beautiful 4-poster room for a couple of nights in August. The room is very spacious with a large bed and comfortable sitting area (sofa, chairs, etc) and an en suite dressing/bathroom - all very tasteful and comfortable. It's brilliantly located near all the little shops and restaurants of Fowey which is a charming village. The owners gave us a very warm welcome, showed us their fantastic collection of vintage phones, and provided a delicious breakfast - lots of wonderful fresh fruit. Highly recommended.

We stayed at Foye Old exchange for 3 nights and what a lovely welcome we had. We stayed in the large four poster bedroom what a grat place to stay. The breakfast is excellent and I dare anyone to finish it. Micheal even gave us a quiz on local history after breakfast and this makes a nice change. I would not hesitate to stay in this b & b and the location is fab smack in the middle of town and free parking at the top of town. Looking forwad to returning next year.

We stayed one night in the Old exchange in the huge four poster room, to find it very comfortable, warm and welcoming. This B&B is full of charm and character. Be prepared for an exceptional breakfast and anecdotes from the owner. Perfect central location for exploring Fowey and the surrounding area either by boat or foot.

Room Tip: The four poster room is very comfortable and huge.

We stayed at Foye Old Exchange for the last night of our weeks holiday in Cornwall, having found it just by chance we didn't know what to expect. We were delighted to find it more than comfortable and the welcome was very warm! We had one of the standard rooms as the four poster was already booked, but found it very comfortable and homely.
Having read about the enormous breakfasts we ordered eggs on toast for the next morning as we couldn't have managed Michaels "regular" offering.
Yes the church bells do chime but they were quite pleasant and didn't intrude too much into sleep. ( my husband slept through it all). Hope to return soon.

Room Tip: four poster room much larger but other rooms more than adequate

We stayed here one night before setting off the walk the Saints Way (backwards). Great location in a lovely town, and nice, comfortable room. The owners were very helpful and friendly, and the breakfast was the biggest I have ever seen - it defeated me (but not my boyfriend). Great place to stay.

Stayed for 1 night at the end of our trip around Cornwall. Michael and Celia are both real characters and very nice hosts - and Michael makes a rather large and tasty full Cornish breakfast too. Fowey is definitely worth a visit - take the ferry boat across to Polruan for a full view of the harbour, and dinner at Sam's in Fowey we can recommend too. The BnB is a quaint, authentically local and very well presented place to stay - can highly recommend, and we'd definitely stay here again.
