Myself and my family visited the Ship Hotel for a Cocktail and cabaret event. from the moment we arrived we were greeted with warm smiles and a very friendly hostess. We were shown through to the bar where the Barman Chris, and his team served us a delicious cocktail, Maple Fool, and for our designated driver a Shirley Temple, with... More

To celebrate one of the 'big 0' birthdays, we had planned visits to two productions at the Chichester Festival Theatre. We chose this hotel for its proximity to the theatre and the fact that it had a restaurant. Our overall experience fully justified our choice and even exceeded our expectations. Check-in was easy but we were very disappointed that the... More

We spent a saturday night here while visiting friends in the area. The rates are fair and the rooms very comfortable. The lift was under repair but we were grateful for the help we were offered with our bags. The let down? Sunday breakfast was chaos; the young staff did their best but they were leaderless and overwhelmed. we waited... More

I love the Ship and stayed there several times. The rooms are well appointed in some cases quirky where the floor slopes and the upgrade of the accommodation has worked well. The Ship is clean and has a small car park, and the only hotel in the centre of the city of its type. The food is wonderful, apart from... More

we thought we would pop in for the pre theatre menu. Our food was really disappointing. WE did complain to the waitress who looked a bit embarrassed and that was that. The food was cold, completely dry and tasteless. We really ended up feeling cross. The best thing about this meal was the glass of wine. We won't be back

We booked into the hotel for 2 nights to attend a wedding 6 months in advance. We called to confirm our booking the week before and to request a parking pass, which the confirmation email stated was required. Our booking was confirmed and a request was put in for the parking pass to be sent out. When we arrived, not... More

This was our favorite hotel stay in England. The room was spaceous,the bed comfortable, the bathroom clean and the water pressure good. We cannot recommend the attached restaurant though. Mediocre food and service.

A great centre of the city hotel which I have known from when I was a very small boy.. Spent a really nice weekend there as a centre for local walking. It is also ideal for visiting the city by foot, as it is central and walking distance for most things. Staff and ambiance are excellent. The food was also... More

My sister recently got married here and we enjoyed a wonderful day at the Ship! The staff were so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble! The day and evening were held in lovely settings and the food was yummy! We didn't spend the night so I cannot comment on accommodation although my sister was lucky enough to stay... More
