Elegant Victorian Hotel offering views of the River Fowey

Located on the South Cornwall coast, this elegant, 37 bedroom, Victorian hotel nestling in the hillside offers spectacular views of the River Fowey and the sea beyond. This 4 star boutique hotel is steeped in history and boasts an acquaintance with authors such as Daphne Du Maurier and Kenneth Graham. Indeed there are framed letters from the Wind In The Willows’ author to his son, to whom he referred to as ‘Mouse’, penned during his stay at the hotel.

The hotel offers guests and visitors the choice of fine dining, in the AA rosette, Spinnakers Restaurant, or light bites, lunches and afternoon teas in the Outlook Bar or indeed, on sunny days, on the Terrace or in the garden.

The hotel is located on The Esplanade so it’s a quick and easy walk into Fowey itself, down to the quayside or to the South West Coast Path.

There is parking available although it is limited so it’s always best to reserve/check with the hotel ahead of your stay.
