Good Hotel Guide Review

What could be more perfect for a child-friendly hotel than the house that was Kenneth Graham’s model for Toad Hall, overlooking an estuary for messing about in boats? Part of the small Luxury Family Hotels group, this Victorian revivalist baroque mansion, plus helipad, ‘ticks all the boxes’, says our mole, a trusted Guide correspondent. ‘It’s a well-managed place with well-trained staff and high standards. And we applaud the way they cater for families.’ Bedrooms in the main house, garden wing and coach house mix contemporary comfort with antique pieces. ‘Ours, upstairs in the old mansion, was warm and welcoming, with all the comforts, including a super bathroom, and a pretty view across the garden to the harbour.’ Pick and mix from the panoply of family-friendly options and activities: collect eggs from the hens, walk Bramble, the dog, bounce on a trampoline, take bucket and spade to the beach. Children’s meals are served all day, while, at grown-up dinner, modern dishes please (perhaps confit and smoked duck terrine; Cornish catch of the day). ‘Our evening meal couldn’t have been nicer.’ (Abigail Kirkby-Harris)

Guest comments

'Fowey Hall ticked all boxes! Despite it being mid-December there were quite a few guests. We were upgraded to a large room upstairs in the old mansion. This had a delightful view across the garden to the harbour beyond. It had all the comforts including a super big bathroom, and it was all warm and welcoming. A big improvement was that this time adults-only breakfast was available in the small but quite adequate dining room. We totally applaud the way they cater for families. ' - AK - December, 2014
