Bedrooms and bathroom clean and supplied with toiletries along with tea, coffee, biscuits. A flat screen TV, and sufficient storage space for clothes. Good choice of options for breakfast. Food served to the... More

I recently visited the Ship for lunch with my parents. I had they burger which was huge and tasted amazing! My parents shared a pulled pork and club sandwich which were also delicious. Highly recommend! Will be back for more.

Our stay at the historic Ship Hotel was a very pleasant one. The hotel is situated on the main parade at Parkgate overlooking the Dee Estuary (mainly marshland with pools) and the Welsh hills. This is a fantastic scenic location for bird watchers. We watched a Marsh Harrier hunting on the marsh directly opposite the hotel and were pleased to... More

My wife had previously been here for lunch, and suggested trying it for a stay whilst investugating some business prospects. What a pleasant surprise and a delight. Very old historic hotel/building. Paid the bit extra for the Lady Hamilton room and what a view across the estuary and marshes. Even saw a juvenile Hen Harrier flying/hunting back and forth on... More

We stayed here for two nights as my daughter had a reunion with old friends. It was at least 13 years since we had even visited the area, and I remembered The Ship being very noisy at weekends, full of youngsters having a good time! How a place can change, The Ship is now much more sedate! Still very busy,... More

Only stayed one night whilst attending a party and would be happy to stay again. Our room overlooked the car park but we could also see the estuary although to be honest a view is not our priority. The room was clean and a reasonable size as was the bathroom and there was plenty of hanging space. The breakfast was... More

Overall our stay was OK, most if the staff were friendly, and the breakfasts were lovely. However, our room was very, very hot and when asked if we had slept well we mentioned the temperature, only to be told "It's an old building, the water pipes go through the rooms". No offer of a cooler room, or fan or anything.... More

Just got back from a nights stay at the Ship Hotel. Arrived yesterday morning in Parkgate. It was a little tired and quiet on a sunny Saturday morning . The staff were very pleasant and although we could not have our room due to being early they offered us a place to leave our luggage as we were going to... More
