We did not stay overnight at this inn so cannot make any comments on accommodation. We did eat twice, once a ploughman's and an evening meal on another day, both meals were of fair proportion and tasty, no complaints, a bit pricey but that seems to be par for the course these days. We will return and eat there again... More

The location is superb, most rooms and the restaurant overlook the Fowey estuary which is terrific and being on the opposite side of the river to the town of Fowey you get a feeling of tranquility. There is also a private car park which is very useful. The rooms are decent enough, reasonably spacious and comfortable but not to a... More

A short ferry trip from delightful Fowey the hotel has a superb location overlooking Fowey Harbour, the river and estuary. A rambling old building with a friendly bar and posher looking restaurant, the rooms are basic and fairly comfortable and the food plentiful but unexceptional. We enjoyed the stay but neither the hotel or the food were cheap and the... More

Arriving by train at Par our taxi driver took us to Fowey but did not know where the Old Ferry Inn was located (just 30 metres uphill from the car ferry landing at Bodinnick). The hotel is "quirky", with a seemingly random selection of staircases and doorways. Decor was dated but perhaps that's its charm. WiFi was free but didn't... More

We last stayed here many years ago when the inn was filled with beautiful antiques. The present owners have decided to mix the old with the new keeping the charming old bar area as it has probably always been and modernised the upper floors. The restaurant is bright and airy and our bedroom was very light and beautifully decorated with... More

According to Booking.com this pub/B and B is located in Fowey. It is not. It is located across the river from Fowey in Bodinnick, which means you have to take a ferry, which if you have a car, costs you GBP4.00 one way. Mattress on the bed was awful, sagging in the middle. The shower room and toilet was very... More

Popular pub/restaurant in Bodinnick. Offers rooms, bar service & Restaurant. We have had a beer & sat on the terrace in the sun admiring the beautiful views of Fowey & celebrated our wedding anniversary in the modern Restaurant which also has outstanding views. All pleasurable experiences. The food was outstanding. The staff are pleasant & the service professional.

Stopped in here on a sailing trip from Helford to Lymington. I think of Fowey itself as a very well preserved Cornish town, and the Old Ferry Inn is part of this history. The room I had was large, a bit wonky with double windows facing the (thankfully little-used) street. WiFi in this hotel is a bit dodgy - the... More

This was a pleasant surprise, while it is an old Inn downstairs, upstairs there is a modern restaurant and outside patio area with great views over the river. Our room was very nice, well decorated with a river view, which was worth the extra money. The food in the restaurant was excellent. The only down side was that the hotel... More
