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

This was our second stay at The Ship In Dock, and it is still as good as the first time. The room was comfortable and warm, and we had a nice view of the river without paying the earth for it. Breakfast was very good, and the staff very friendly. Great location just along the riverside from the centre of... More

Great location, quiet and relaxing with a fantastic view of the both the river and the naval college, friendly staff who made our stay very enjoyable. We managed to park right outside the door and didn't feel the need to move it as everything is within walking distance. We will definitely be going back again 😃

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

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Ship In Dock is an nearly 400 years old, but was recently refurbished by previous owners Jim & Linda Brent. We have four lovely rooms, each with en-suite bathrooms, and all offering views over Coronation Park. Located in the heart of Dartmouth, the Ship is the ideal place to stay and explore the town and the beautiful South Hams. Our restaurant offers home cooked food, and our bar has some of the best beer in Devon. We look forward to welcoming you in the near future. ... more   less
