“Excellent Inn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014 via mobile

Not next door but walking distance to/from Fishguard & Goodwick Rail Station and Ireland Ferry. The inn is well-run from start to finish. Upper Fishguard and Lower Town are a bit of a hike but there are occasional buses running there. (For Coast Path walkers or others without cars, it would be helpful to post time, bus route and pickup location for guests wanting to go into those towns for dinner or to see the fascinating tapestry of The Last British Invasion at the Town Hall etc.) Goodwick is a 10-min walk away up short hill for local pub dinner. The area has fascinating history, a great Marine Walk that covers the 1-2 miles into Upper and Lower Fishguard. The Inn is conveniently near a Tesco. Top marks for this establishment! Personal thanks also to Michele for receiving our train tickets and her team's excellent service.

We were welcomed by our friendly and welcoming hostess Michele to this lovely small hotel. Our bedroom was fresh and bright. The bedroom and bathroom spotlessly clean. We had an excellent nights sleep in the very comfortable bed.
There was a great choice for breakfast. We had a cooked to order breakfast which consisted of locally sourced produce. Delicious!
We would highly recommend the Ferryboat and would certainly stay again.

We stayed to nights here. We received a warm welcome from Michelle and Denham, and had a very comfortable stay. The room was clean and had enough space for our cot bed. We slept very well and enjoyed a great breakfast in the mornings. The other 2 staff members that we met were also friendly.

Good location and easy to find too.

We paid £150 for 2 nights which is excellent value for what you get. We would recommend The Ferryboat.

Michelle texted our entry code and room number just before we arrived as she would be out, so we made our way to our room , sunny and clean. Welcoming us shortly after, she advised us of local restaurants, so we ate well that evening, slept well in comfortable quiet surroundings , and enjoyed a good breakfast before our trip to Ireland. A great place to start a trip!

A big thank you to Michelle and Denham who made us feel so welcome. The room was spotlessly clean and my wife and I had a lovely sleep before our trip to Ireland. The breakfast was faultless with locally sourced ingredients. Ideally situated for the ferry.
Thanks again

Booked The Ferryboat for one night as it was the only place in the area that had rooms and a good review. I'm glad I booked! The host Michele was very kind and welcoming upon arrival and gave suggestions for restaurants in the area for dinner. The room was very clean and we'll presented. Breakfast was excellent and service again was great. Would stay again longer to explore the area more.

Well once again we booked the Ferryboat at Fishguard and the welcome and service was great .
We were the only ones booked in for that evening so we "had the run of the place" The service was exceptional ..especially at breakfast when Denham cooked us a hearty breakfast!. We enjoyed a friendly discussion with the owners, Denham and Michele after breakfast and felt like part of the family by the time we left to go shopping in upper Fishguard village . We will stay once again, defiantly, as the standards are very high ...yes there are slightly cheaper places to stay , but we wanted a clean and tidy place to stay at without compromise!, and that is what we received and more. There is a railway line just alongside the Ferryboat , however this did not disturb us or our sleep.

Room Tip: if you do not want to compromise and want quality and a friendly place to stay ...this is one of the...
