After walking the south west coast path and staying in pubs and B&B's we were looking forward to a hit of luxury on our last night in Padstow I thought the Old Ship Hotel looked just right. For £120 a night I was expecting a nice room and certainly one without lots of noise. Unfortunately it wasn't to be. When... More

Staff were friendly and very helpful. The food was excellent and well worth the wait as the pub was very busy..Would recommend this hotel

The best thing about this hotel is the location, it's located just seconds from the harbour and the charm of Padstow. We were disappointed with the accommodation however. One night here was double the cost of all other B&Bs we had stayed in during our Cornwall trip, and it was the most disappointing. The room was huge and it was... More

Waited for 40 minutes for our food which wasnt too much of a problem as the pub was very busy. The portions were small. The fish pie cold. The pork steak tough. The kids meals arrived with salad even though we had specified that it be left off. The sea bass was lovely but a portion more like a starter!!... More

Just returned home after a lovely week at the Old Ship Hotel. Our room was comfortable and large and included a fridge! The food was wonderful, tasty and divine! The staff were friendly and hard working nothing was too much for them. Children and adults alike were treated well. We would definately recommend it! Thank you

Very Central Location in the heart of Padstow. Free parking but up alot of steps. Staff were friendly and helpful and more than happy to help with bags. Room 7 was modern, spacious with a very large bathroom. Room was clean with a fridge, located over the kitchens but we didn't find it noisy and had the windows open all... More

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
