Fowey Hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 15, 2009

We stayed for two nights at the Fowey Hotel, an old Victorian hotel dating back to 1882, which sits on a hill offering magnificent views over the Fowey estuary. The hotel is located about a 5 minute walk from the heart of town, via the Esplanade.

Not all rooms have a view, but we specifically booked a "Premier Room" to guarantee a view, and found on arrival that we had been upgraded to the "Honeymoon Suite"! While not as luxurious as it sounds, the views from the room were gorgeous, and we even had a small private balcony.

Parking is of a premium in Fowey, and you can request car parking at the hotel when you book (£10 per night). If successful (there are limited spots), a space will be pre-allocated to you, and will be marked with your name before you arrive.

We found the staff to be friendly and helpful for the most part, especially one of the porters, Stewart, who was filled with information and suggestions.

Unique Quality: There is a relaxing bar and lounge area which is a great place for a drink or afternoon tea - we enjoyed both while gazing out the large windows to the water views.

The restaurant is an impressive looking room, and it serves up decent breakfasts and dinners, with a view from some tables (book in advance if you want one).

Established in 1882, the Fowey Hotel is a haven of tranquillity resting on the bank of the Fowey River Estuary. This grand lady, a tribute to great Victorian architecture, majestically watches over the lazy yachts and quaint fishing boats as they creep in and out of the mouth of the river.

Unique Quality: The hotel offers not only tradition and comfort bus also splendid views over the Fowey Valley.

The hotel is set in attractive gardens and also has a second, beautifully landscaped garden area just across the Esplanade, right by the water's edge. In this garden one can enjoy a traditional Cornish Cream Tea on lazy summer days or, alternatively, from the hotel's pretty terrace overlooking the gardens and water.

The Fowey's restaurant has retained the coveted 2 AA Rosette award for exceptional food since 1997 and an extensive wine list compliments every menu, which changes daily. The menus offer a choice of dishes using the best of Cornish produce based on what is seasonally available, all of which are skilfully prepared by a very experienced kitchen brigade led by Master Chef Mark Griffiths. A comprehensive Bar menu is also available at lunchtimes and in the evenings.

Directions: From the town centre towards the sea along the Esplanade
