We were blessed with good weather which made the location of the hotel - high up overlooking Fowey wonderful - super for the cream tea we treated ourselves to on arrival (always cream first )

We had a large ground floor room overlooking the lawns. Bed was large and comfortable and there was a lovely bathroom- furniture was oddly out of proportion with the room

There is no bar but there is a drinks menu and you order and it is brought to you - we sat in front of the log fire with a g&t - lovely

Dinner was good - my lamb chops with their accompanying potatoes and peas - sounds ordinary but they were really good

Family (and dog) friendly hotel but the dining areas were separated which if you are a child free couple was nice

Parking on arrival was difficult- there was a large large much party in

Breakfast buffet style but had ‘from the kitchen’ options which we took - kippers and omelette Arnold Bennett - both of which were very good

Difficult to identify staff as no uniformity to a dress code and not all wore name badges (which were small) - also seemed to have a problem with teaspoons- had to ask every time!

Overall- A really enjoyable stay and would certainly recommend

As a last minute booking, my husband and I had an overnight stay in this beautiful hotel for our wedding anniversary, this was our first stay at Fowey Hall, but hopefully not our last.

The staff were all really friendly and helpful, especially as on the actual day of our booking we were unable to make due to car trouble. After I phoned the hotel and explained they were able to transfer our booking to the next day.

We were lucky to be given the Charles Hanson Room which was very spacious, even a little alcove with a small sofa and table, It had stunning views out towards the Fowey estuary and across to Polruan. There is an easy walk down into Fowey.

We had dinner and breakfast included and both had lovely food and good service. All in all a great hotel and although we didn't take our dog, it is dog friendly, hopefully when we return it will be with our four legged friend!

We booked a family break earlier in the year and set off expecting a wonderful holiday based on all the reviews and the hotel's own web site. There were positives but also, we felt, a lot of negatives.
The main hotel was lovely, food was good and there were several staff who really went above and beyond but there it stopped for us. We had booked a family suite in the courtyard and the room was exceedingly dark and dingy. It was also incredibly noisy, either in the day time as the the kids club was also in the courtyard, or at night time when you could hear every creak and word overhead. The furnishings are 'vintage' but to be honest it just looked shabby. No mini bar so in the heat of summer it was just bottles of lukewarm water provided by housekeeping and no way to keep them cool. The kettle was on a tray (a vintage one obvs) on a teeny tiny rickety table which mean making a hot drink with children around became a worrying exercise. There was a chest of drawers in our room (which was also stand for TV yet difficult to see as it was in the corner) but no wardrobe, there was a wardrobe in kids' room but awkward to get in there sometimes if you're waiting for them to sleep. Bathroom (more vintage) with a rickety towel rail looked on the verge of collapsing and there were just not enough plug sockets even though they all seemed to have multi-adaptors in them. Have stayed in worse places but not the kind of ones that badge themselves as 'luxury' and charge the price Fowey Hall charge. Overall not good value for us but others may have a much more positive view, perhaps if they stayed in main hotel.

My husband and I were so pleased to have chosen
the Fowey hall for our break away. The hotel was lovely, cozy old school charm. We enjoyed the restaurant too .
Lily in the reception couldn’t have been more helpful. Generally the staff were exceptional.
We can’t wait to return with all our family in the future.

This is the place to go to if you want something with a bit of old school mixed with new-and if you have a big bash involving lots of family. Pool is nice but no gym or places to sit around if you are in the spa. The hotel is a converted Victorian pile and with some lovely features however we had a mix up over booking and although it was dealt with efficiently it meant that staff weren't aware we were in the rejigged room and thus room wasn't cleaned on first day-we had to ask for towels etc and there was a mix up then over breakfast-they kindly gave us a free drink but that was perhaps a small offering. We knew the hotel was for families and that was not a problem-I think I would definitely recommend to families with young children as they really had catered very nicely for them. The rooms do need updating-they have not quite got them right. The furniture is mis matched but not in a good way! The bathroom we had was very large-two sinks but only one soap supplied. The shower cubicle is tight-we are fairly large people admittedly but I think with a tiny basket to hold the lovely products bending over to get shampoo etc is tight! Really appreciate the lovely products but that is all you get-for a luxury hotel other bath products are usually given (shower caps etc). And lastly-the food was good but the wine list is too expensive for average tastes. I don't like breakfast buffets-inevitably if you come down toward end of service the food is cool-and my pet hate again you have to make your own toast! Up the road a new restaurant has opened called Edie's kitchen-go and spy on what they are offering its terrific! It is not a cheap stay at Fowey Hall so some upgrading needs to happen to really call it luxury but we would go back-the best asset is the staff who were all delightful!

Room tip: The connecting rooms for familes looked good
