The Ship is situated on the coast at Parkgate directly overlooking the river Dee to Wales. A brisk walk along the prom certainly blows away the cobwebs before and after work. It is an old hotel and pub that has been tastefully decorated and offers rooms that overlook the Dee however these needs to be requested. Our double room was... More

Stayed one night whilst visiting friends that lived nearby. ..and could easily have stayed a lot longer. Traditional building that has been sympathetically modernised. Staff were informal and friendly but very helpful. Our room was spotlessly clean and comfortable. We didn't try the evening meal but the full English breakfast was great. The bar had a good atmosphere and made... More

Having been here previously with good experience we decided to visit again. There were a few tables in but not busy. We got our drinks then had to wait over half an hour to order. The food is fantastic but the service very poor and slow. We were there for over an hour and we'd only had starters. Bar man... More

We stayed on New years Eve for the second year running and have to admit we were disappointed by the lack of atmosphere this year. it was... More

Excellent staff - I felt that they all went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Fifty five pounds for a double room was a very reasonable price. We made the most of the lovely pub downstairs and enjoyed a lovely meal and drinks. I will certainly come back.

We had two rooms a family room and a twin room for one night. The family room had been refurbished and was really nice and clean and comfy. Lots of storage. Great to have tea and coffee facilities. The twin Room was a lot smaller but was fine. We ate in the bar one evening and food was very good.... More

Stayed at The Ship whilst attending a party locally. We booked for two nights and ate in the hotel once. The room was a good size, decor is a little old fashioned but the bed was extremely comfortable and the bathroom was excellent. Whilst we were there there was some refurbishment going on to the outside of the hotel and... More

Have stayed here before but they have been renovating and this time I stayed in one of these rooms. It is full of character as you would expect from a room above a pub. The room and the shower room was very clean and comfy. Always recommend the food here - very high quality.

We booked a table last sunday to celebrate a birthday. Inside the pub was lovely, the staff were welcoming and the food was outstanding. However, we were very disappointed with the poor service after the main meal. We wanted to order more desert, wine and coffees, but we did not have our table cleared after our mains for 40minutes before... More

Have just stayed for 1 night whilst attending a works Xmas "do" at The Ship. My room was very clean, recently refurbished and more than adequate. The bar is busy, the restaurant popular and breakfast was good. It is in a lovely spot overlooking the Dee estuary and with excellent room rates cannot be faulted as somewhere to stay in... More
