Went to the ship today and had an enjoyable meal with family friends.the service was second to none polite and prompt but unobtrusive.We had the fixed price meal which was good value and very tasty. Good ambience and decor would not hesitate to recommend this venue. Only slight downside was that portions were on the small side.

Food and decor excellent. Staff very friendly. Loved the decor and the gin menu in the bar. Only complaint would be that my single room on the top floor was very hot. The window was open at all times and a fan left on, but still far too warm! Enjoyed my stay very much, despite the appalling weather!

Stayed in the Hotel which was lovely but cannot recommend the restaurant. The food choices were often off the list and not available. You end up having to make 3 - 4 choices before they tell you its available. We asked for a bottle of bog standard Pinot Grigio to be informed that wasn't available. Most choices seem to have...

We booked one of the hotel's themed cream tea. This one was Alice in Wonderland. The staff were really polite and we turned up early but they were happy to accommodate us. The table was set out lovely and the room was very well decorated. We were offered Prosecco straight away and asked for a jug of water. The ware... More

we visited for themed afternoon tea for birthday treat. Whilst the hotel itself looks lovely, well decorated , the service we received was awful as was the afternoon tea. Cakes, pastries etc that had obviously been made early morning and sat there awaiting customers. dreadful. Service was awful too. One waitress who had such a bored look on her face... More

The room cost £139 per night. We had a small, stuffy room overlooking a flat roof which did not look clean. The plumbing was noisy and had to be fixed. It was less noisy afterwards but we could still hear it. The fan in the bathroom was noisy. The key to the room did not fit the lock properly and... More

What a great central location for this stunning Art Deco Hotel and Restaurant. The interior of the Ship is splendid and takes you back to a by gone era of decadence and fun. We started the evening enjoying cocktails, a great choice of Rhubarb and Rose recommended by the Barman, whilst sitting in the plush bar. We were escorted to... More

Many years ago there was an advertising campaign for a bank under the tag line "the bank that likes to say 'Yes'. In retrospect many of us will now know they were saying yes for their sakes rather than ours. This is where the difference between the Ship and the Bank starts and finishes in that The Ship really does... More

The interior design of this hotel is excellent, shame the staff have not been trained or managed to the same standard. The staff are very friendly and do their best, but they mill about without any direction - it took over an hour for us to be served a one-course lunch, we would have had a dessert, but decided we...
