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. If we have let you down then we will always try to put things right and I would welcome the chance to talk about your experience and how... More

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

Good lager, fantastic pizzas and friendly service. A small, traditional coastal pub with wall-to-wall Naval and maritime memorabilia and pictures. Very cosy and typically English. Good service and outside seating just a stones throw from the water. Would definitely reccomend. Oh, and they deliver onto the nearby Naval college, if you can't be bothered to travel down!

Stayed in Dartmouth for our first time and at this accommodation and it was a great experience with really friendly staff and tried their renowned pizza which was great beautiful views only downside building work next door, which could limit your views of the river dart.

Enjoyed an overnight break in this quaint little hotel just a stones throw from the harbour. Beautiful live music with bust street scene and very welcoming staff. Room was spotless, quality bed and towels with a great sea view. Breakfast a little basic I.e help yourself to most of it. I wonder how long before some hotels give you a... More

The staff especially the wonderful Leanne were just so welcoming and friendly. Nothing was a problem. The rooms have been recently refurnished and are 10 out of 10. The bar at night has the locals and occasionally staff and cadets from the Royal Naval College which makes for a great atmosphere. Too top it off the breakfast was fantastic and... More
