Location, staff, food, building all good but you can sit on the loo and wash your feet in the shower whilst cleaning your teeth, with nowhere to put anything! The bed was comfy though.

Took the wife to the Old Ferry Boat Inn for a quiet weekend away. It is really quiet! it is on the Great Ouse with only a mooring spot for company. The only noises you can hear are ducks, fish splashing and the occasional boat going by. It is on the edge of the village of Holywell which is very... More

We celebrated my Aunt's 100th birthday at The Old Ferryboat Inn. It was a very special occasion to us and it was so important that it went off well. We contacted the Old Ferryboat inn's Events Manager, Jo Major, who made sure our hopes and expectations were met in full. We discussed our menu with her and received invaluable advise... More

We really wanted somewhere on the opposite bank of the Great Ouse a little nearer to Cambridge, but there was nothing available at short notice. As the crow flies this looked very close, but was a 15 minute car ride round via Earith. If you haven't a... More

We stayed at The Old Ferryboat for 3 nights and had a wonderful stay thanks to Bryan and his great staff. We ate here every evening and the food was great. Rooms are comfortable and kept clean and tidy.
