Mildly disappointing. We had a standard room. Fine for 1night and bed comfortable but we found the room unclean. We had to ask reception to clean the bath again, commendably they were prompt and the housekeeper very friendly. We also didn't have tea as the kettle hadn't been de-scaled. We took the DBB offer but this only works if you... More

Our own home rugby team playing away in Chichester so we decided to have a couple of days away. Chose The Ship as very central to the city. Arrived a little early but no problem booking in. Room on the third floor lots of doors and stairs but there is a lift if needed. Good size room with view of... More

Ideal if you want a hotel with character and in the middle of Chichester. It is quiet yet busy, the old style lift is an experience. The rooms are clean, comfortable and very accommodating. The free wifi was very good and consistent around the hotel.

My husband, young son and I came down to Chichester recently for my godson's birthday and we spent one night here. We booked the Family room as it was the only one left at late notice and I'm here to vouch for the fact that sometimes fate can work in your favour! The family room was very smart, very clean...

Love this hotel. Stayed here a couple of times and both times our stay has been excellent. Since our last stay the interior designers have been in and have done an excellent job with refurbishment. Food is excellent and we found the staff to be helpful, polite and efficient. The car park is limited in size and not helped when... More

We have just returned from a lovely weekend stay at this very smart hotel.Our party of six all had slightly different rooms all of which were varied in shape and size but equally clean and roomy. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. We only had breakfast here but the selection was very... More

We were visiting Chichester to go to the theatre and the Ship is a short walk. The facilities are excellent and the staff are good. The décor will give the interior designers in you a real treat, lots of interesting things to look at and even "quirky" but in the best way. We enjoyed it a lot, but if you... More

My wife and I have just returned from Chichester were we like to do our Christmas shopping combined with a weekend away. We stayed at the Ship Hotel, as we did last year. We had a very good deal that covered dinner, bed and breakfast. The staff were all helpful and polite. The only reason we didn't give a five... More

The staff were very welcoming and couldn't have been more helpful. I travel solo these days and I have come to expect a poor room. My single room at the Ship was no exception - small, gloomy and old fashioned. I was in Chichester for the festival. With friends I saw Gypsy at the Festival theatre. This was excellent and... More
