Pleasant little inn, small but perfectly adequate rooms. Situated in the centre of Stromness, right across the road from the Ferry terminal. Good food at sensible prices. Friendly staff, nice bar with a good selection of local beers.

Overall, I would recommend The Ferry Inn - good location (nice little town Stromness) and helpful staff - we stayed as a couple for four nights. On the positive side the restaurant dinners were very good - the fish and chips was probably the best I've ever had and the fillet steak was also excellent. Breakfast was reasonable - a...

The Ferry Inn was recommended by friends and did not disappoint. It was very busy but staff were friendly and helpful. The food was plentiful and very tasty. Hard to decide what to eat. The bar area where we ate was interesting and quite comfortable.

Stayed here on business after booking at very short notice. Karen on reception was very helpful after booking.com overbooked and my reservation had to be cancelled, Karen finding me somewhere else to stay for my second night. My room was adequate but very comfortable. The single bed was comfy and I had a good nights sleep. I ate in the...

So convenient to the ferry and downtown Stromness. The road outside leads to the rest of the island. The rooms are interesting, ours looked down two alleys in the town. The town is pretty quiet and everything seems vintage and antique. We were told that there is free WiFi, but it didn't work, if we went to the meeting room...

This fabulous overnightery became much more than the focus of our Northernmost turn-around point during a 2-week holiday; It is the epitome of superb local cuisine, excellent rooms/beds, and. most importantly, extremely professional, friendly, informative staff. A dozen years before, my our two children and I had overnighted in John O' Groats, not thinking to continue onto the Kirkwall Ferry/Orkney...

We had another great meal at the Ferry. Friendly staff, pleasant surroundings, good choice of food and wine. Perfectly cooked haddock and spectacular chips. Truly memorable. Thank you! I don't wish to add any more comments thanks TripAdvisor.

There arent many hotels in the area and costs are perhaps a little on the high side but it is a lovely place. Food is good, you are well looked after, the bar is great and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Perfect location too.

Fish, chips, and more in cozy restaurant right near the ferry station. There's music in the convivial bar next to the dining area. Menu varies for dinners, but the choices were good...lots of seafood. It's not fancy, but it's a very good place to eat.

Our first time in the Orkney islands, and not knowing anything about the place, we booked Ferry Inn for two nights purely due to its close proximity to the ferry terminal/bus stop as we were arriving late in the evening. although it was slightly expensive compared to another B&B we were opting for, we loved every minute of our stay...
