I stayed at the Ship for 3 nights at the end of January. The location is great and easily walkable from the railway station. It also has a good size car park. The reception staff were very friendly and check in was efficient and speedy. My room was a nice size with tea and coffee making equipment and a good... More

An absolutely stunning hotel right in the centre of Chichester. The photos don't do it justice, it's gorgeous. Check in was swift, efficient and friendly. The lift was a bit of an unexpected thrill - it lurches off and stops with equal vigour. Nothing to worry about, if anything it adds to the charm of this unique place. We stayed... More

We attended the Ship Hotel for a wedding. Hotel was easy to find, parking to the rear was free. Room rate was discounted by virtue of the wedding booking. Room was well appointed with lovely high ceiling. Plenty of hot water for the shower. Courteous and attentive staff. The next time we're shopping in Chichester we will be tempted to... More

Beautiful old hotel in heart of city. Walking distance to everything! Check in was easy and pleasant. Room was small (though not by UK standards! ) but beautiful and comfortable. Only room complaint was that it was hot...even with windows open and fan. The bar was great for late night drinks and the breakfast was yummy!

The bar is great - lovely atmosphere and the main dining room is decorated very well. We were in room 12 - really comfy bed with... More

We had been booked in to the Ship by friends, as I was arranging flowers for their wedding which was taking place locally. I was thrilled to find they had booked us in to somewhere a bit quirky, with original floral displays in the foyer & bar areas. The décor was gorgeous & we were more than happy with their... More

Would have been the perfect stay if it had been half the price. Lovely little B&B, but so overpriced. £159 for an 'executive' room that was so small we had to ask to move. I would have expected more from a standard room. We were moved to a 'superior' room (reluctantly) which was only a few inches bigger. Room was... More
