Some good things to say, Kevin and staff all friendly and want to please. Relaxed about muddy paws and footprints on carpets, breakfast very good. I just wish we hadn't been over the bar, very noisy music which overpowered the tv, and went on until late evening. Hate the booming bass thumping through the floor. Stair light not working which...

I am very sorry that your stay with us wasn't perfect, but can reassure other guests that the experience of noise was exceptional - it was the night before New Years Eve so we were having a small party in the bar but the music did finish by Midnight (normally we don't have any music after 10.30pm). Obviously I am... More

We only stayed for one night, whilst doing a whistle stop tour of Devon. Kevin, the owner was a great host. The locals are very friendly too. Our room overlooked the river Dart, although the view is likely to be compromised soon by nearby building work. The room was clean, quiet and the bed was king size and super comfy.... More

The Ship in Dock is a B&B located above a pub in Dartmouth. The host, Kevin, was ever so helpful and friendly. The B&B is in need or repair (planned for this winter) but the rooms are clean and quiet. It is located a few minutes from town center, restaurants and shopping. The pizzas served at the pub are delicious.... More

Booked for two nights managed one only, had to leave this terrible , unclean tip of a hotel, my advise for any one would avoid this Inn, it was most probably in better condition in 1657 when it first opened. The new owner needs to spend some time cleaning the rooms and staircase or even pop into some of his... More

Obviously I was disappointed to hear of your poor experience at the Ship in Dock Inn, and I take extremely seriously your comments. You quite rightly point out that the stair carpet is now beyond its life, and requires attention - which is why we have a new carpet on order that will be installed in the next few weeks.... More

We recently spent a week at the Ship In Dock Inn and happy to say it was a great time. The Hotel is easy to find, the rooms very clean and bed very comfortable. Bathroom was large and very good in our room (#1) and the breakfasts were excellent. Room size is on the smaller end compared to Australia, but... More

After continuous excellent pizzas and home delivery by the former owner Jim Brent we decided to continue to support this local business but they have now lost our support. On one previous occasion we had to wait an hour and 45 minutes for delivery of two pizzas, but we decided it may have been busy so to give them another... More

We were obviously disappointed to hear of your poor experiences since we took over from Jim, but the truth is hardly anything has changed about the team cooking or delivering the food.

We stayed at this hotel over bank holiday weekend, we left it until fairly late to book and knew we wanted to stay in Dartmouth and this was one of the few properties with availability. We found the room to be super comfortable and surprisingly quiet (we didn't hear any noise from the pub at all) and breakfast was fabulous.... More

Booked through the internet, the views from the rooms sold it to me. When we got there the place was a lot smaller than I expected. When shown the room, the view got me again. The room was very comfortable and the bathroom was spotless. Breakfast was great, you can have what you want, and all the staff was so... More

We stayed at this hotel last week. We located the hotel easily and it was in a great location, near the harbour and the town. The hotel provides a parking permit for a local car park so park up outside the hotel unload and then park the car. The room is basic but adequate considering the amount of time you'd... More
