We stayed at The Ship on New Years Eve and again on February 13th. The room we had at New Year was OK as we were hardly in it. If we had been staying longer I would have found it claustrophobic as it was small for two people. When we went back in February I rang in advance and asked... More

Revisited The Ship with a different group of friends for one night Bed Breakfast and evening meal. As on the previous occasion,the staff were both friendly and very efficient. The room and bathroom both clean,with sufficient space for our clothes. I understand for an increase in the tariff you can have a room with a sea view. This time we... More

Lunch at the Ship was a lovely surprise,huge selection of mouthwatering combinations, laid back atmosphere, lovely views and good friendly service. There were six of us and we were all pleased at the huge portions and the quality and taste of the food we had ordered. I had the homemade steak burger, with melted cheese and streaky bacon on a...

My family have now dined here twice as we are locals and on both occasions the change from my cash payment has been kept, they just hope that you get up and leave ,thereby allowing them to keep your change. The restaurant manager needs to induct staff to be professional with customers and customers will tip you on their attentiveness... More

Stayed here to celebrate a birthday and retirement. Great location with plenty of choice nearby. Rooms are fine, although new pillows are in serious need and on this occasion I forgot mine. Food excellent, great atmosphere. However if you email with a special reques don't expect a result. It would seem emails aren't checked.

I enjoyed my stay here very much. The hotel has been modernised but retains a great deal of character. My single room was newly renovated and very comfortable. I had a very nice evening meal at a reasonable price. The young staff were friendly, polite and respectful. The hotel is set on The Parade, a long esplanade which overlooks a... More

I went to this hotel with my girlfriend (and it was nice that no eyebrows were raised about us being a same sex couple). It is the second time I've stayed and the experience was equally lovely. The hotel itself is beautiful. We stayed over a weekend and all the tables were booked on the Saturday night - so if... More
