This hotel was booked well in advance of our actual visit and the price was a fair one. It was in an excellent location right next to the College, the rooms were nice and roomy, with a very comfortable bed. The bathroom was ensuite and also large warm and roomy. The breakfast next morning was very good indeed. We were... More

An Historic Inn, conveniently situated close to the Ferries and the Town centre. It is within a short walk of the College, although the hill is steep, so for the young it is good exercise. Taxis are readily available. There is Parking nearby, but it might become crowded in the Summer Season. The Inn has been part updated/modernised. The staff... More

The only fault we had during our week stay at the Ship in Dock Inn was our room overlooked a building site next door, as there was a block of apartments being renovated. This was no fault of the proprieter and they had no problem when we asked to move rooms when one became available on our second day. The... More

Great accommodation for myself husband and puppy. Breakfast was excellent and catered for my wheat intolerance. Doggie biscuits for my dog. Good central position for Dartmouth. Park opposite for walking the dog.

Ship in the Dock was exactly what we needed. A warm welcome; a clean comfortable room and a hearty breakfast. And well priced. We will certainly stay again. Parking was taken care of; a pass for main Dartmouth carpark.

We booked as a stopover on the way to deeper Cornwall, and weren't disappointed. Room 3 as well appointed and equipped, and a recently refurbished bathroom had one of those big shower heads - comfy bed. Wifi was a bit hit and miss. Good range of local ales in the bijou bar and friendly staff, we ordered a pizza which... More

We have visited Dartmouth many times and have stayed in a number of bed and breakfast's and can honestly say that in the Ship in Dock, we feel as though it has become a second home. The warm welcome we get makes us feel part of the Inn's family especially the owner, Kevin. Located just a short walk to the... More

Visited Dartmouth recently to celebrate my 50th birthday with 5 other ladies. On the Saturday night we needed somewhere to watch the Wales/England rugby world cup match & chose the Ship in Dock. The landlord Kevin couldn't have made us more welcome. The pizzas are superb & the other food looked really good also. Thank you Kevin for such a... More

Picture was obviously taken in happier times... There is a building site next door... Looks as if it has been going on for some time... The Exterior of The ship in dock bears little semblance to the picture shown on trip advisor, sadly shabby and in need of tender loving care. Disappointing. Interior very dated all you see walking past... More

TheShipinDockInn, Owner at The Ship in Dock Inn, responded to this review

Dear Guests and anyone reading this review I am sorry but I just think that this review is entirely unfair and unjust, and typifies the dangers ot Trip advisor. Are we as outstanding as some of our reviews say? Probably not always, and yes we can always improve. Do we deserve to get a very poor rating from someone who... More
