Our favourite rooms
All rooms are well appointed; a few have roll-top baths. The 15 in the main house are wonderfully decorated, with traditional furnishings. Rooms on the first floor are larger, with high ceilings, red colour schemes and WiFi; the John Hanson and Charles Hanson have rolltop baths, and the latter has particularly lovely views. Second-floor turret rooms (Robin, Niles, Lamerton and Hoskin) are characterful and have fabulous views. The 12 rooms in the new Garden Wing connected to the main house all have estuary views and are more contemporary in feel; they're ideal if you have toddlers. Eight Court rooms are set in the original coach house, a minute away from the main house.
Fowey's spa features a heated indoor pool and there's a hot tub to bubble in outside on the decking.
Wellingtons for long walks with Werther the dog; bucket and spade for days on the beach; cosy knits for the fireside.
Dogs are accepted in some rooms for £10 a night – let the hotel know in advance if you plan on bringing your pet.
Fowey has excellent family facilities (connected rooms, crèche, baby-listening, highchairs, swimming instructor, games room…). Under-16s can stay free in parents' rooms and pay only for their food, and have a high tea so adults can dine alone.
Up to two well-behaved dogs can be accommodated in main house rooms (for £10 a dog a night). You'll need to keep them on a lead in the hotel and its grounds, and the dining areas are a dog-free zone.
