Delightful room, comfy bed and large bathroom. Good view of the river from bedroom, close up view of the college from the bathroom! Service was excellent. Breakfast was freshly cooked and Smoked Salmon option was a very generous portion. The house cooked Pizza was also delicious, very welcome after a day out on Kingswear steam train.

We were welcomed and shown our room; with a view over the River Dart and spacious en suite bathroom. The staff were all very helpful and when one of us was ill, allowed us extra time to get things ready on the day of our departure. Breakfasts were generous and the evening meal we had there was good wholesome and... More

I popped into The Ship In Dock Inn in all honesty to have a quick pint and use their wifi to look for accommodation. Was greeted by the barmaid Leanne, who willingly provided the access code and a lovely pint of Doombar. The pub had only just opened and was lacking in customers but she filled that void with conversation.... More

Very friendly from the minute we arrived. Rooms are fresh, clean and bright and the bathrooms are exceptional. The river view was an added bonus. We requested an early breakfast which was delivered willingly at our requested time. Will definitely stay here again.

The location great, river views lovely, but room was not clean enough. The carpet hadn't even been hoovered from previous tenants. The bathroom was modern but also needed a good clean before we arrived. The chef was helpful n breakfast was tasty as was the young girl behind the bar who showed us to our room Also when we first...

The Ship In Dock Inn is just off the riverside promenade in Dartmouth, and as such is perfectly placed for enjoying the delights of this town. We have stayed here twice, both times in low season when parking was not a problem. I can imagine the parking situation might be differerent in high season. Our room (room 3) had a... More

We stayed at the Ship having seen Trip Advisor reviews. The staff are friendly and helpful; the room was not big but well equipped and comfortable; and there are simple but good breakfasts and meals in the eating area. It is a small place with only 4 rooms which we liked. Our room (No 2) probably has the least best... More

Only a short walk to the centre of Dartmouth, breakfasts were fantastic & staff very friendly. Our room was very clean and bed incredibly comfy. Could not have wished for a better place to stay ! We will definately return in a few months time - this is the kind of place we will always return to.

The location is great, the view from the rooms is great and the food is great. The Pizzas are highly recommended. So now down to earth. Based on our experience the first thing you need to make sure is that the owners are NOT on holiday. If they are, then you run the risk that some of the staff left... More

Absolutely incredible! There were 3 other guest rooms occupied and all were very happy and heard no noise at all. These guests were unhappy when they arrived and bickered loudly in the bar and over breakfast, which was very embarrassing for the staff and other guests. We suspect the guests arguments became worse and they decided to leave early. The... More
