Booked here fairly last minute. Thought the Hotel had style and substance. Nice rooms, big bed, great breakfast, really helpful service and in a good central location too. Was perfect for the wkd away.

This was our third stay at the property and it has quickly become one of our favourites. Very convenient for the theatre and the city centre, with a warm and friendly welcome, nice rooms and efficient staff. Murray's Restaurant is also excellent and the pre-theatre menu is really good value.

Enjoyed a two night stay at the Ship Hotel, steeped in history and plenty of character. Great location for the town that is widespread with lots of shoips. Theatre less than 10 minutes walk. Excellent breakfast with great variety. Comfortable room, fresh and clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. Celebrity Photo gallery in the breakfast/dining room - David Cameron stayed... More

After staying in London and having a wonderful experience, I was looking forward to staying in Chichester where my significant other grew up. The Ship received decent reviews so I booked 3 rooms for me and my family. We informed the hotel that we were getting married later in the week and in-town for a special occasion. When we arrived,...

The location right in the heart of Chichester just metres from the Cathedral could not have been better. There is also a private car park at the back of the hotel which can be used by guests and which is easily accessible. The room was clean, service friendly and breakfast varied with a cooked option. The design of the restaurant... More

This is a review I’ve been meaning to write for a while. We’ve been staying at The Ship in Chichester for the past eight years, initially (and often still) on business-related stays; although for the past three years we have also chosen to come and stay here for short breaks out of London, or added an extra day onto a...

We stayed here for one night. The room was very nicely decorated and comfortable. Unfortunately the staff were not very welcoming and were abrupt , as though having to deal with customers was an inconvenience to them. The receptionist who was checking us in stopped to deal with another customer, who had rudely interrupted, rather than politely asking them to... More

I stayed one night on business and was very happy in practically all respects: clean room, nice and quiet, very central. Working in the evening there was nice coffee, and nobody minded my sitting on my computer in the lounge. This is a quirky building with a maze of corridors- I loved the fact that updating hadn't made the interiors... More

Room was nice but had a few flaws. Creaky floorboards, no curtains just blinds at the windows, the lighting was not very good & there was a noise like a diesel engine running outside from early in the morning.

Stayed one night with my wife whilst attending a wedding in the local area. Positives: - smart, spacious, well-decorated, lots of character - very different from a chain hotel! - friendly and attentive staff - convenient location in central Chichester - free parking and easy access - large and comfortable bed - absolutely top notch breakfast - both buffet and...
