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

Was recommended this place by staff in jug and bottle in Heswall ( which is fabulous, friendly staff and great service) waited 20 minutes for a drink and when we queried if our order had been forgotten was told with a great deal of attitude that 'he's doing it now' how long does it take to pour 3 drinks in...

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

The sort of quality which has all but disappeared. I imagine that it must be privately owned, as in no respect did it have that chain feel. I stayed there on a business, but I am tempted to return with my wife for a week-end.

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
