A really friendly welcoming hotel with bar and restaurant. Our room was spotless and there was a large disabled access bathroom. Fresh milk in a thermos for tea and coffee in the room was a thoughtful touch. The shower was hot but the flow was a little underwhelming. Lovely young man on reception loaned me his iPhone charger - much appreciated. Full English breakfast was excellent and we appreciated the cafetière of coffee. A great stay.

The Ship Hotel Review
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The staff were friendly and accessible. The food was very tasty and we didn't have to wait very long before it was served. The room was on the third floor but, with the lift this was not a problem It was very clean and more than adequate for our needs. I would recommend The Ship Hotel.

Excellent hotel friendly and efficient staff.Food very good. Only one comment a safety handle would be useful on the side of the bath when having a shower.
