The Ship Inn was a great place for a two night break with our young dog. The room was clean and spacious with all amenities we needed.

We escaped for a couple of days and The Ship Inn which came highly recommended met our expectations. We enjoyed a lovely evening meal and breakfast and the room was wonderfully decorated. Lovely touch with the Burt Bees toiletries but the Rubber Duck didn't float!

The building was originally built to house ceased illegal contraband and to keep prisoner the unfortunate smugglers who was owned it - however today it's tastefully decorated to... More

The bathroom was a little tired but the shower was great and had nice toiletries. We ate in the pub downstairs in the evening and the food was really tasty as... More

Stayed here for 1 night, 2 couples on a mid week break. Everything was great from the welcome to departure, all the staff were so friendly and couldn't do enough to help and provide information. Our rooms were small doubles - they were small but very comfortable with lovely bed linen, towels and toiletries. We didn't eat dinner but the... More
