The ship is an ideal location in the centre of town but also convenient to access from the major routes and has sufficient parking on site (despite building works). The service was efficient and courteous, the room was beautifully decorated and the breakfast was reasonable but somehow it was rather anonymous. The hotel provides a voucher card which gives significant... More

Great town centre hotel with excellent food and service. We stayed in the self contained cottage which is luxurious. TV in the bath and all mod cons throughout. Some really good shopping to be had in Chichester....Beautiful!!!

Great accommodation, friendly staff, very inexpensive, lovely bar area to sit and relax , great breakfast. Parking was limited so had to walk a couple hundred yards with bags, but had a very late check in.

We stayed at the Ship Hotel on Friday night with our 6 year old son on our way to visit family. We arrived later due to traffic and rain and the car park was full with only a one small space left, a member of staff saw our dilemma and kindly moved his car to allow us the larger space.... More

My recent stay at the Ship was consistent with previous visits. The room was clean with lovely decor. I haven't scored a 5 because the towel rail wouldn't turn off; this meant the bathroom was like a sauna and made the room hot too. Staff are friendly and obliging.

The Ship has had an expensive make over in recent times, and it is almost achingly fashionable, very 'of the moment' in terms of decor (which is lovely now, but sure to date very quickly). We stayed in a small separate annexe, which was compact, but very bijou, with everything that one could possibly need or think of needing in... More

We stayed overnight on a visit to the Chichester Festival. Everything was perfect. The building itself is charming and very centrally located. Our room was comfortable and imaginatively decorated. The reception and bar/restaurant staff couldn't have been more helpful - nothing was too much trouble. We missed the breakfast time slot and they offered to arrange something for us. And... More

A lot of effort expense has gone into this hotel but it’s a shame about the breakfast. Our room 28 on the second floor has a view across to the Cathedral. But I am going to talk about breakfast first. We went down at 9:00 am on a Friday morning. There were maybe 4 or 5 other couples at various... More

We spent a happy Sunday night at the Ship Hotel after a visit to Pallant House Gallery; we were able to check in to our room early in the afternoon (thanks to the helpful staff member who organised for our room to be ready early) so had plenty of time to relax in comfort before a really delicious dinner in...

Booked the hotel last minute by phone as I was referred to the hotel by another one. Booking was pleasantly efficient. Upon arrival check in was quite standard and not a very warm welcome. Pity. Room was fine however, I had hoped to be accompanies to the door of the room as a matter of welcome and courtesy. Again pity.... More
