The Cormorant Hotel Hotel

The Cormorant Hotel is a luxury boutique style hotel located in the tranquil village of Golant, near Fowey, South Cornwall. 

Location and views

Nestled amongst the wooded banks just 2 miles up-river from Fowey, this boutique style hotel enjoys panoramic views across the River Fowey that are just as perfect for winter breaks as they are summer. All bedrooms have splendid river views and most have balconies.

The location is quite magical, making the hotel one of the most beautiful places to stay.

You'll find that the sights & sounds of the river instantly wash away the stresses of busy life. Relax with a drink, on the garden terrace, on your own balcony, or in the cosy bar. Take a dip in the heated indoor swimming pool or hot tub overlooking the River Fowey. Positioned at tree top level with commanding views of the River Fowey in Cornwall, the pool house has a beautiful heated Swimming Pool and hot spa tub.
