We stayed at The Ship Hotel,Parkgate,The Wirral. We chose this hotel because it was near to the party we were going to. We arrived to find a large car park. We were checked in by a loverly lady who explained what time food was served. We were given breakfast times and also asked if we wanted to book a table... More

Having stayed here on previous occasions, whilst visiting for my Father's milestone birthdays, I felt comfortable in making another booking when I needed accommodation in the area when I attended his Funeral recently. I was not disappointed with the warmth and friendliness of the welcome, not forgetting the substantial breakfast (if you wish the "Full Monty") and the open fire... More

We found the Ship Hotel staff all to be friendly and helpful. There is a large on site car park. We enjoyed relaxing by the open fire with a glass of wine and reading the papers before being shown to our table for our evening meal. The quality of the food was good, the price reasonable and service friendly. We... More

we weren't quite sure what to expect. Had booked the Lady Hamilton Suite which was very nice and it was situated over the bar area looking out on Pargate through a huge window. Nice bathroom. Great breakfast, and as a bar downstairs it was great. Food though we didn't eat there seemed popular and looked very nice.

Six of us had dinner on new years eve.The service was excellent,a good range of real ales,especially "Trappers Hat " from the local Brimstage Brewery.It was a great atmosphere ,not too crowded.We all live on the Wirral, in fact one couple live in Parkgate,its a lovely place, quiet and relaxing.

Me and my boyfriend went here the weekend after Christmas. There's not much around there an the weather wasn't great so we were spending the majority of our time in our room for a relaxing night. We booked a table in a local restaurant for 9pm so we wanted to just chill till then. We were in the Lord nelson... More

I Picked this for two nights rather than staying at a Cheap lodge hotel. Spacious room and recently redecorated. Breakfast was excellent and well cooked, standard Full English with plenty of other choice. Bar was good and plenty of people about and restaurant food was good as well. Very good value for what you get.

I have regularly eaten at the ship over last few years. No nonsense food at a reasonable price (as well as a decent selection of ales). Service with a smile is always on the menu. What more could you ask for?
