The Ferryboat
Ranked #1 of 21 Fishguard B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 June 2009

I stayed here with my spouse for two nights over a weekend. The inn is located in Goodwick, the neighbouring town/village to Fishguard itself - which is about a 15 minute walk away. The rooms have been recently redecorated as has the restaurant/breakfast room, both of which are in very good order. Bedrooms are compact but very comfortable. Breakfast was simple but fresh. There is a little something missing from the Ferryboat Inn but I can't put my finger on it...... it doesn't have the homeliness of a B&B, nor quiet the atmosphere of a Pub/Inn with rooms. But it was still a pleasant and good value place to stay.

We stayed at the Ferry Boat Inn in September. It is a fab location for walking in the Pembrokeshire National Park, and an easy drive to St Davids.
Rooms are tastefully decorated in modern colours, with flat screen Tv's - all mod cons.
There is a snug little bar with local ales & spirits. Dinner was tasty with local produce being used.
Would recommend it for anyone visiting the area or en route to Ireland.

A small friendly hotel very close to ferry terminal, cosy comfortable room with flowering window boxes. Bathroom adequate but only a shower - no bath.There is a small bar,and dining room but we didn't have dinner. Breakfast was fine. Very convenient for crossing to Rosslare, Ireland.

We went to the Ferry Boats resturant in July for a Birthday dinner and a silver wedding anniversary. The resturant has obviously recently been refurbished and has been done to a reasonable standard. We started our dinner with drinks at the bar, the bar is well stocked with welsh beers, vodka's wiskeys etc which in general were good (the beer tasted a bit mass produced which is a shame given the number of excellent regional beers available in wales). We were a party of 15 and were asked to ring our order in earlier in the day which we were happy to do so. The menue was uninspiring but we managed to try and find some things we liked the look of. I had the crab tower for starter which was made using lovely local crab and avocardo, which for some reason was bound and then covered with a mass produced mary rose style dressing, the artificial taste of which ruined a wonderful ingredient. Most of the rest of the party had the goates cheese and beetroot salad which was pretty much declared a disappointment by all. (it also took till the end of our starters to get the wine to go with them). For main course 2 out of 3 of the steaks were pronounced excellent (althought they all came with the wrong sauce) but one was a poor cut which was inedible. I had the sewin (wild sea trout) which I was excited about as it is something we look forward to when we come back to fishgurard when we visit family. It was shown on the menue as cajun, so when we ordered the food we asked if the chef would mind cooking it without the cajun sauce as it would ruin the flavour of the fish, as 6 of us were ordering we were told this would be fine. The sewin was touch, dry and lacking in any flavour and was served with what tasted like a kraft garlic salad dressing, also we were all certain that it was not fresh. My sister in law and a few others had the chicken with chorizo which sounded lovely and can only be described as bizarre tasting neither of chicken or chorizo. The sea bass was pronounced a sucess. The waiting staff were very helpful and nice but could use a little more training (not their fault). At the end of the meal we complained to be greated by an obnoxiuos head waitress and chef / owner who refused to believe any thing we said. We were also advised that the chef couldnt have cooked the sewin pan fried as you should never cook oily fish any other way than en papiout, a bizarre claim and to be honest the fish hadn't been cooked en papiout any way. All in all the meal was total disappointing and very expensive given the number of sauces that came out of a jar. We will never visit it again.

Stayed here for one night prior to catching the ferry to ireland - lovely rooms, if a little on the compact side, but newly furnished and decorated. We two rooms at the end of the corridor which could be closed off to function as a family room. Very pleasant meal in the restaurant at very reasonable prices, and a good breakfast the next day meant that we started our holiday off in good spirits

Coming off the night ferry from Ireland to Wales,we needed a place to lay our heads.There was no problem about the lateness of our arrival.We arrived at 12.45midnight.Our room and en suite were small but recently renovatetd.The bedroom was very comfortable, clean and beautifully decorated in a modern style.Breakfast the next morning was downstairs in an older part of the building which was a little shabby but perfectly adequate..Breakfast itself was excellent.I would have no hesitation in staying in the Ferryboat Inn again.
