After a very tough few months we needed some ‘us’ time. We could not have chosen better. The location is peaceful and beautiful. The Inn exceeded all expectations. Elegant and comfortable rooms with the best shower we have ever had in a hotel. Staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. Such attention to detail. The food was varied, delicious and incredible value. We will most certainly be back. Cannot wait for the treatment rooms to open.

Stayed for a good friends wedding in Nov 2019 and it was such a lovely place. Feels like you're in the middle of nowhere with beautiful views. When we arrived we were able to check in to our rooms early, they were spacious and well kept. Lovely amenities provided also. We stayed in one of the newly built rooms. Bathroom was beautiful. Wedding area was lovely and whole day and evening went smoothly. Lovely outdoor space also for taking a breather. Food provided was beautiful. Breakfast the next morning was delicious and everyone left full. Would love to stay again and definitely recommend.

We have stayed at The Ferry House on several occasions, but last night we thought just to have a special meal. In the past we have been put off going just for a meal because the food had been amazing, but the service has let the down. Well no more. Last nigh the service was amazing. Thank you. It made it very special. X

Attended a family wedding here and found a little peace from all the coronavirus madness. Instantly felt safe with good COVID Secure measures. Our room had been cleaned so well and was spotless and made us feel at ease straight away. All the staff were so polite and helpful and such a lovely location for get away. The food was delicious too and all local. Thank you.

I had arranged a meal for my parents 40th wedding anniversary at The Ferry House Inn as this is somewhere they had visited for weekends away numerous times when they were younger so it seemed like the perfect place to celebrate. Unfortunately it is not the place it was back then and has massively gone down hill! My fiancé is a world champion body builder who is currently preparing for a competition so has to take his own food to restaurants as it all has to be weighed, cooked a certain way etc. After we had been shown to our table, I asked our waitress whether his food could be heated up in their microwave which she agreed was perfectly fine. 5 minutes later she returns to say that it could not be heated which is understandable and only possible in a few restaurants. Happy to eat it cold, 5 of us continued to order starters, mains, a bottle of champagne and additional drinks. Approximately 10 minutes after this another waitress came over with an extremely rude attitude and said my partner was not allowed to consume his own food on the premises and if he needed to eat his meal, he would need to go and sit in the car on his own so he could not be seen. Conveniently, they had waited until we had all ordered before announcing this. In the 6 years we have been together, no restaurant has ever declined him eating his meal, even more so when we were going to be spending a lot of money. We could get no explanation from the restaurant manager as to why this was the case except the fact that they may lose their "licence" if they allowed 1 person to eat their own food onsite. This was completely contradicted by allowing us to take a cake which they were more than happy to offer us side plates to eat this on site. Not only was my partner made to feel excluded while he ate his meal by himself in the car, after this disagreement the staff were nothing but rude and sarcastic which completely lowered the tone of the evening. We had driven an hour to eat with you and were appalled by the way we were treated and it actually made us want to leave ASAP. A very unfortunate experience for my parents who had been visiting you since their teens and stated in the car on the way home they will not be returning!
