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

Excellent menu with plenty of choice. Been several times and tried quite a few of the dishes, each one of them very nice. Friendly staff, and an amazing view out of the window - stunning location. I highly recommend The Ship Inn. I will definitely be back in the summer months as I would imagine the views are even more... More

Before booking a room at the hotel we viewed the hotel web-site and trip advisor, the hotel rooms looked pleasant as did the bar and restaurant area. The hotel is in a great location, good for walking and visiting areas such as Thurstaston and the Wirral Country Park. Parkgate itself is a nice area to explore and along the front... More

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.

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
