We just stayed here on a Travelzoo voucher, and weren't sure what to expect. If authentic Cornish history is your thing, this is your place. A real "Inn" perched yards from the estuary, and retaining every bit of it's original charm. If you want friendly, helpful hosts, this is definitely your "place to be. Nothing is too much trouble.

As usual we had a fantastic break at The Old Ferry Inn with Pascal and his excellent staff. The room and views were excellent and the food as usual "was too die for". We visit a number of times each year and there are always little improvements that have been made by Pascal to enhance the stay. We will continue... More

We have just enjoyed 2 nights here with the travelzoo deal. It was an incredibly good deal, and I would also recommend the one night deal if time is short as it is well worth staying here. We would go back any time. Lovely, comfortable room, with an excellent ensuite shower room. Good quality towels, including doggie towels, which is... More

We have just returned from a two night stay via a travelzoo offer at this great little place. The views from the reception areas are fantastic, the staff are extremely friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Our deal included dinner on the first night which was excellent and we chose to dine at hotel on the second night too.... More

We booked this on a travelzoo deal and stayed for 2 nights at half term. The food was great, especially the spit-roast lamb on Saturday night which was delicious. The staff were friendly and helpful and the location is fabulous. Will definitely return and would recommend a visit.

We stayed the night at this inn, to say we were pleasantly surprised is an understatement, it was just so enjoyable with really lovely food and very good staff. We would definitely stay again and can't recommend it highly enough. The views from the inn are fab, with the ferry across the water to the centre of Fowey next to... More

What an adventure! We had a large room at the top of the property with a beautiful view of the river. One double bed, two singles, and a Z bed gave us all somewhere to sleep in comfort. The bathroom was reasonably sized with toilet, shower, bath, and washbasin. All the staff we met were welcoming and friendly. The breakfast... More

We stayed here earlier in the year and liked it so much we decided to return. We booked directly with the owner, Pascal, and got exactly the room we wanted, in the oldest part of the building and with a large bay window overlooking the river. It was really lovely being able to just sit and watch everything that was... More

My wife and I took advantage of a TravelZoo offer of a night's stay including a Cornish cream tea, dinner and breakfast at the Old Ferry Inn. In fact, we added an extra night. We were warmly greeted upon our arrival, and had our cream tea in the beautiful sitting room overlooking the river. That evening we had the 2-course... More

Just back from a week-end in Cornwall, having stayed at the fabulous quaint Old Ferry Inn, which is just a stone's through from the banks of the river Fowey. The food was top notch, staff really helpful and welcoming and the views absolutely stunning. Our room was spotless and the bed soooo comfortable. We would definitely stay here again and... More
