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?

Stayed here recently for a celebration birthday. We have a large comfortable room overlooking the front with wonderful views. The bathroom was well fitted out with lots of accessories, two of everything which was great as usually one gets one shower gel between two. The towels were good quality and there was a walk in shower. The bedroom has comfortable... More

Fantastic service by every single member of staff. Fantastic food at extremely reasonable prices. Comfortable, clean rooms. Situated near a lovely ice-cream and coffee shop and looking out to the Estuary. Its a lovely place to stay. We will be going back.

We have just returned from a one night stay in this charming hotel, and cannot sing its praises high enough. Nothing is too much for the staff, very attentive and genuinely seemed pleased we had chosen to stay in their hotel. We booked a table in the restaurant and were given a window table with lovely views over North Wales.... More

Booked table for 4 at the ship for Sunday lunch a couple of weeks ago. When we arrived we were seated to a nice big table- I was worried we were going to be crammed onto one of those small square tables which do not comfortably sit 4! All had roast dinners and it was lovely. Waiter asked if we... More

Accommodation was excellent as was the food. The breakfast was probably one of the best I have ever had at a hotel. The bar was crowded in the evenings as it was turned over to dining. Staff were helpful and attentive. Only reason I have only rated it at four is that some areas (notably the stairs) is badly in... More

This Gastro-pub produces a great standard of cooking and the menu changes regularly. This time I tried the spare rib starter which was total disappointment. The ribs where soft and "fell of the bone" but were very bland and tasteless. They were obviously microwaved to order and parts were still cold. They were served with what seemed to be a... More
