I stayed here for my son's passing out at BRNC. It really is a proper INN. i.e. a pub with rooms - not a hotel, nor does it pretend to be. The location could not be more convenient being just across the road from the college gates and still just a couple of minutes walk into the town. The room... More

Ideally placed for visiting Dartmouth with the advantage of having parking permits offered. Service and breakfast is fine. My room however, required some TLC. There was no shelf over the bathroom sink as it had been broken. The sash on the window was broken and the window held opens with a stone. The light fitting was askew and the wardrobe... More

Hi Thanks for your review, would have been great to receive the feedback when you were here (if you did then apologies). All fair comments, and we have responded to them. The sash window is a big job, but we have someone coming in to make a temporary repair. The bathroom shelf was only recently broken, but has now been... More

Not what the description says as the harbour views are lost as there is a huge block being built in front. No garden to speak of not very appealing. Lovely playground with delightful cafe opposite. Shame as it must have great

Thank you for your review. Unfortunately, the building next door was erected without our agreement and isn't really our fault. However, the good news is that the building work will be completed on the 21 August, and while the full view of the river is obscured there will still be partial river views from rooms 1 and 3. Rooms 2... More

It was our first visit to Dartmouth and the B&B was in a great location and they provided a pass for parking which was also very handy. The room was fine, clean and tidy and the bed comfy. Maybe the choice of some firmer pillows could be good. The WiFi though for the room did not work, we couldn't connect... More

For such a small pub on the side of the main road in and out of Dartmouth The Ship In Dock Inn punches well above its weight. Although my first pint - Jail Ale - was a little cloudy it was drinkable and the lady behind the bar immediately took it off sale when another customer mentioned it. The remaining... More

Only used the Pub for dinner...but is everywhere in Devon dog friendly? Having been told they were ok with dogs in the pub, even in the dining area, was still surprised that the barman had a bag of dog treats on the bar and was keen to make friends with the dog first...before finding a nice table and sorting out...

Been to Dartmouth loads of times and never visited before. But found a warm welcome and good beer. next time I'll try the food.It is well worth seeking out ,especially if you only come over on the lower ferry.

From the moment we walked in, Ken was fantastic, very helpful and accommodating. He rang round other hotels getting us fixed in for another night as he was unable to accommodate us. He made us feel at home and nothing was too much trouble

We didn't stay here as a B&B but we ate here twice in a week and on both occasions the food was great as was the service. Make sure you book a table as they can only seat 14 people. Would thoroughly recommend for good pub grub or pizzas.

Spent 4 great days down in Dartmouth at the free music festival. Terrific. Booked in at The Ship in Dock Inn. Ideally situated for walking into town or harbour front. No hills to ascend !( If your staying "up in the hills", the local authority haven't yet got to grips with the concept of providing extra buses for events such... More
