I'd been before, and wanted to take some friends to enjoy the beauty of Fowey. This lovely Inn is next to Daphne Du Mauriers house, also where the ferry runs from, and gives a beautiful view of the Fowey harbour. Sadly the weather wasn't too good, but we still had a great time. one of my friends had left her... More

We Stayed for one night at the Old Ferry Boat Inn in Fowey. The Inn over looks the beautiful Fowey estuary and the ferry boat that takes you there. The reception was very friendly and we were shown to a well equipped room. We stayed for dinner and the food and wine on offer was first rate. There was parking... More

I chose to spend a couple of nights here because of the location. Coming from a land-locked part of the country I relished the prospect of a room with a sea view and nowhere could possibly be closer to the water. My room was clean and comfortable and the bathroom newly appointed . The dining room benefitted from the lovely... More

We visited this restaurant to kick off our holiday. The restaurant offers spectacular views over Fowey. The food is great and the service fine. Reasonably priced also. The restaurant is situated conveniently next to the Bodinnick ferry - don't get caught by the last crossing though!

Stayed here in mid March 2015, helpful staff, good food, loads of character.We stayed in one of the rooms overlooking the river so a great view. Had a great afternoon taking the ferry over to Fowey, a few drinks with locals then back for supper at the Ferry Inn. Will definitely stay here again if we are in the area.

My partner and i had just taken the car ferry over from Fowey by foot and were expecting to take a bus to Polperro.................... big mistake! We should have realised our error when we asked the ferry conductor if there was a bus service on the other side, his reply being a Cornish, short, terse............... BUS?.............NO! and walked away. We... More

Although the pub could do with a little TLC, the bedrooms were bright, beds comfy and great linens. The breakfast room was very modern and contemporary. However, the views of Fowey and the harbour were absolutely fantastic. Also a trip back from Fowey on the ferry is a very pleasant experience.

After five nights in Cornish Inns owned by a major Cornish brewery we were not expecting very much from the Old Ferry Inn. But we were pleasantly surprised by an entirely different feel and tone to the management and staff of this old pub which is privately owned. It is a maze of rooms which seem to have been added,...

We only stayed for one night, but this hotel is a real gem. From the moment we arrived, when we weren't sure where to park and Pete came out into the street to meet us, then checked us in, showed us the room and generally looked after us; to the waiting staff to Rene :-) the owner. It was great.... More

We called here for a meal and the view from the restaurant is amazing. Sadly we did not receive a warm welcome and the staff looked generally miserable throughout our stay. This could have been a wonderful experience with friendly welcoming staff. The Inn does not give the impression of cleanliness throughout. Some of our cutlery was stuck to the... More
