As soon as we stepped over the doorstop, we received a very warm welcome by Jackie the owner. The Ship has a very cosy old charm feel, and is obviously a favourite with the locals. There are some wonderful characters, who make you feel welcome and at home. We had wonderful time. Everyone was happy to advise us of the... More

I was a little concerned after reading the review below however i need not have worried! I stayed for two nights earlier this week and found the room (sea view) outstanding for the price as was the breakfast (which was cooked to order). I found the owner more than helpful even to the extent of recommending various take aways and... More

Extremely disappointed following my stay last night. The beds were comfortable, which was the only good point I can put. Horrible food, very expensive for no real reason. Uneven floors and got locked in bathroom as door got stuck! On top of that, they messed up in the breakfast order we were pushed to get in the night before. (Not... More

The Old Ship offers Pub Food only once per week - Sunday lunch. We were there a year ago and decided to have another Sunday lunch of roast beef and Yorkshire pudding. We were not disappointed - it was very good indeed. The ladies in the group ordered a small portion but that was nearly as large as the regular... More

The Old Ship is ideally positioned overlooking Newbiggin-by-the-Sea's attractive bay and sandy beach. My room was spacious, comfortable and provided an outstanding view across the bay. All the staff in the hotel were friendly and helpful and I enjoyed an excellent English breakfast before departing. I was also impressed by the folk music in the bar as well as the... More

I stayed in a triple room with my two daughters, with a view that overlooked the esplanade and famous sculpture. Walking along the beach in the evening was lovely, and the Inn is smack in the centre of town so within easy reach of restaurants and shops. As were were there during low season it was very quiet. The room... More

The room had a sea view,was spotless, and the bed was really comfortable. The Old Ship has lots of character and the bar is clearly a favourite with... More

Stopped for one night whilst cycling the Northumberland Coast. Very friendly and helpful. Rooms clean and simple. Very much no thrills with character. No food available on Sunday evening so we ate at local restaurant.
