Wasn't expecting anything great when a friend took us here for lunch. What a total surprise, huge portions of excellent home cooked food. Would definitely visit again maybe even stay as they have some fantastic deals at bargain prices. Highly recommend

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

After three decades living away from this area and on a trip down memory lane I called in at the Ship Hotel for lunch. The service was fast and friendly, the portions huge, and the home cooked food was excellent! Definitely worth a visit!

A great location in the middle of the Marine Parade fronting the marsh, the Dee estuary and the Welsh coastline. Safe storage for our bikes. Friendly manager & staff. Downstairs is a good mix of old features (the windows, glass and much of the woodwork) and refurbishment. It had a cosy glow about it and a chatty, buzzy atmosphere on... More

We had a nice table and enjoyed a drink and lovely lunch.When we realised that it was a hotel I asked if there were any empty rooms to view for future stays. There was one, the lady Hamilton suite. This I viewed and it... More

My wife and I both enjoyed a very pleasant lunch at the Ship Hotel. We went in on the spur of the moment. The food was tasty and very well presented and thoroughly enjoyable. The staff who served us were very pleasant and helpful, the view from our window seats added to the enjoyment of eating at the Ship Hotel.... More

We were recommended the Ship for Sunday lunch. we were pleased with the surroundings and the view was great, but the food that followed was disappointing! Poor quality cuts of meat and a skimpy portion of veg between two. Fatty and grisly meat and without any real flavour, very poor show! Will not be going again.
