The Cormorant Hotel Hotel

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


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. The wooded hillside on the opposite riverbank provides the perfect backdrop to catch the sunrise from your balcony. On clear evenings, the River Fowey looks spectacular in the reflected moonlight.
