Transformed by owners Jane and Roy Carson from a derelict B&B into an intimate, boutique hotel with a popular restaurant overlooking the estuary, The Old Quay House has become a firm favourite with visitors to Fowey seeking a romantic hideaway. Excellent service and attention to detail are coupled with a welcoming, relaxed atmosphere and dreamy views across the water to create peaceful retreat that is popular throughout the year. The hotel has scooped numerous accolades over the years including a restaurant ‘Remy’ and inclusion in the Good Food Guide, as well as being named Visit Cornwall’s ‘Hotel of the Year’ and, most recently, the Good Hotel Guide’s ‘Cornish Hotel of the Year 2013’.


Jane Carson comments: “It has been an absolute joy to see our vision for the hotel become a reality and to witness it developing during the last 10 years. Many of our guests now return year after year and have become good friends, as have many of the staff – we have even attended staff weddings in Poland and Sydney! The awards we have received really are a testament to the great team that we have built and that we have enjoyed watching grow over the years. Thanks to the fantastic weather, this summer has been our best yet and a great way to reach our 10th anniversary.”
