A luxury well established boutique hotel in the lovely seaside town of Fowey, Cornwall, is being marketed by Christie + Co.
The award-winning Old Quay House sits on the waterfront, overlooking the stunning Fowey estuary. The small medieval town of Fowey is packed with charm, history, tradition and outstanding natural beauty. It is a lively commercial and yachting seaport, offering a broad range of sport, culture and cuisine all year round.
The Grade II listed whitewashed Victorian building – once a resting place for weary seamen, has been modernised throughout. All 11 bedrooms are meticulously decorated in a sleek, minimalist style and feature: television and DVD, telephone, tea/coffee making facilities, bathrobes, hairdryer, as well as umbrellas and rain macs. The chic penthouse suite features floor to ceiling windows and offers panoramic views of the harbour.
There is also an owner’s accommodation on the site. The attractive flat is located on the second floor comprises a double bedroom with en suite, a lounge and a kitchen. If a new owner chose not to live on the site, this space could be used to create additional letting accommodation which would positively impact on revenue.
The highly acclaimed ‘Q’ Restaurant at The Old Quay House offers excellent dining in a bright and spacious setting. The restaurant serves creative and contemporary dishes using quality local produce and features a diverse range of wines, all carefully selected.
The current owners have operated the hotel since 2002. They undertook a complete refurbishment, extension and rebuilding of the site to achieve their aim to be one of the leading boutique hotels in Cornwall, and are now ready to take early retirement.
Matthew Smith of Christie + Co’s Exeter office is handling the sale. He says: “The Old Quay House enjoys a tremendous reputation. It is one of the few boutique hotels in Cornwall to draw praise from all the major guidebooks year on year.”
