Stayed here for 3 nights this week. All staff very good throughout our time there. Room was good size and well fitted TV and wifi were good. BreakFast was first class and offered a large choice. We did eat there in the evening so cannot comment on that. We would certainly stay at the Old Ship again

Stayed here for our long weekend stay in Padstow. Booked directly and got choice of rooms and booked one on the top floor but it wasn't cheap. Location is great being right in middle of Padstow and easily walkable everywhere. Free car parking is a bonus but the car park is quite hard to find and there are lots of... More

My husband booked this hotel as a surprise weekend treat for my birthday. I love Padstow and I was delighted with his choice of hotel. We stayed in room 11 which was spotless, very roomy with lots of storage space, a fridge, safe and a decent hairdryer. All of the staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. Breakfast consisted of a... More

Myself, my partner and mum in law are currently staying at the Old Ship Padstow, I have to say from the moment we arrived the staff have been friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. We are in rooms next door to each other with a door from the corridor that we can lock to ensure privacy for the... More

We chose this hotel based on very positive reviews on tripadvisor. The hotels website is very informative and made our choice easy. The staff are very friendly and the food is very good for what's essentially a pub. There was always a good vibe around the hotel and it was genuinely quite busy. We stayed in room 11 which was...

A great pub in Padstow and very friendly. Great food and more importantly Brains Beer on as well as the local Padstow ale. Both highly recommended to get away from Doom bar which is everywhere. This is the pub to visit and looked a great place to stay. Will return.

We stopped for an early morning coffee. It's a nice place to sit outside and staff are friendly but it was let down by the fact they charged £3.25 for a decaf latte made with instant coffee! We won't be returning.

Had a lovely four poster room, no view but nice room. My only problem s were a child sized wardrobe so you couldn't hang a dress up properly and everything in the room squeaked badly, the floor, the bed, the wardrobe doors. A little attention to these kind of details would give a more pleasant stay. The bathroom was very... More
