Recently back from a weekend staying here and had a great time. The food in the restaurant and the bar was great, there was a nice friendly atmosphere and the breakfast was excellent. As with us most of the other guests were couples on similar short breaks including some long term regulars. Just remember the time of the last ferry... More

We had a couple of days here just before Christmas. The food was delicious and very fresh. It is in a lovely situation, with a gorgeous view. We found it very friendly and relaxing. The slight disadvantage is that there's no evening ferry, so no alternative to have dinner. As the food is lovely it is not a hardship. Our... More

We stayed 12-16 March 2015 and thoroughly enjoyed it. The room ('family' overlooking the ferry - although just two of us) was very comfortable and two armchairs in a bay window had a super view of Fowey across the river. Food was absolutely first class, without being fussy 'Michelin star on a big white plate' sort of thing. Ask for... More

This lovely hotel is located in Bodinnick nestling along the Fowey river and near to the river ferry. A very welcoming reception and very polite staff. Nice bright rooms with pleasant views towards the river. We ate in the restaurant which serves lovely home cooked food and can only say "job well done" There is no Wi-Fi in the rooms... More

We stayed at The Old Ferry Inn for a couple of days this week. Everything was great and we were looked after very well. Food all freshly cooked. Rooms very clean and very friendly helpful staff. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a traditional Inn type accommodation. Thankyou for a super 2 days.

We used to go here regular but you have to cross the river by ferry .Its now £1.70 each way so for 2 people over £6.00 as they do not do a return ticket .The Old Ferry Inn is quite old and the bar area is very old world .On a nice day you can sit outside on the balcony... More

We took advantage of the Travelzoo offer for two nights - turned out to be excellent. We stayed in Room 6 (with river view). Clean tidy and well presented - it was all we could ask for in a 400 year old building. The food was fantastic - dinners and breakfasts - in both quality and quantity. The service was... More

Spent two nights at the Old Ferry Inn - the trip was a Christmas gift for my brother in law with my sister and I tagging along. The Inn is very old and must need constant maintenance and updating to keep it going. The views are absolutely wonderful (make sure you have a river view - no point in being... More
