"Unfortunately we arrived on the Friday the Government ordered all bars and restaurants to close, so although we were booked in for 2 nights, we only stayed 1. The service in the restaurant was excellent, even though we were the only people eating. At breakfast, they explained we weren’t allowed to eat in the restaurant, so they provided room service, which wasn’t the norm for them, but it was still excellent in the circumstances."

Overview

With good food and harbour views, The Old Quay House is a "stylish hotel" within the Polperro Heritage Coast, which Alasdair Sawday's calls a "lovely spot". The Daily Telegraph says it has "dazzling views" across the Fowey Estuary and "front row seats" to the river.

The property is a Victorian former seamen's shelter that today has earthy tones, natural fabrics and big windows to make the most of the views. The 13 bedrooms are all individually designed, and Classic rooms have views of the quaint high street, while Superior rooms have partial estuary views.

The restaurant showcases local seafood, West Country meat and Cornish cheeses, and there is also a "sunny" (The Times' Cool Hotel Guide) terrace with "great" views of the river -- a fine spot to stop for a drink and watch the boats go by, and even spot the occasional dolphin.

Fowey is a "stunningly picturesque" town, says Condé Nast Traveller. It has plenty to do, whether it's browsing the independent boutiques and art galleries or eating fish and chips on a harbour wall. You can join the South West Coast Path and walk from the head of the estuary to St Catherine's Castle, 20 minutes away. 

The Eden Project is less than 20 minutes' drive away. The National Trust property, Lanhydrock, is less than 25 minutes' drive away and The Lost Gardens of Heligan is less than 45 minutes' drive away.

Lovely two days, the only real problem is the fact that there is no close by parking. The Hotel parking is 1/2 a mile away which is not funny when it's raining !!

Lovely ambience ad good food. Good quality toiletries. Had to walk a little to park car but the position made up for this. The parking was well organised so no worries once the car is parked.

Lovely evening meal & cooked breakfasts. Great location in middle of town. Approx 10-15 minute walk to carpark that is complimentary with booking.

All good. Only disappointment was the size of the room which was very small considering it was an upgrade. Also didn’t like having to up and down a flight of stairs to the shower room. We should have been advised about this beforehand.

A great hotel with very attentive staff and wonderfull food. Rooms were spacious with special touches such as raincoats and unbrellas provided. An experience worth trying.

For a quieter room, ask for a seaview location.
