Had our last meal here before going home after a week and it was fantastic, we had the seafood platter, we'd been eyeing it all week and wasn't disappointed, absolutely devine. The service was excellent as was our waiter Rob. Looking forward to going back next year, highly recomended

We have eaten here many times over the past 20 or so years and the food is good value for money with a nice selection of daily specials However, there has on many occasions been a pervading smell of toilet blocks around the part of the seating adjacent to the toilets so try to avoid that area!

We ate here a couple of times during our stay in Padstow. Food was nicely presented and freshly cooked. I can recommend the Fish Pie and also the Smoked Haddock Risotto (which was on the specials menu). It was reasonably priced too. They offered quite a wide menu including some other fish dishes which looked very substantial. Would definitely recommend.

Only drank here did not stay or eat but it looks just like pictures, smart and clean. It has a nice covered beer terrace at the front on Mill Square. Food looked generous and tasty and bar offers local Sharp's of Rock Brewery beers and lagers. Not the best pub - but looks like the best inn.

We stopped here for a quick drink and a bowl of chips. The service at the bar was friendly and quick but does it really take 25 mins to cook a side order of chips?? After 15 mins we equired about there whereabouts and when they did arrived we where told the order had gone on to another order and... More

Stayed for 2 nights with 2 dogs, us and my mum and everyone couldn't be more helpful. Carried bags to our room (14 - with side access to steps leading up to car park and grass for dogs) and we ate there the first night. They kept our 10th wedding anniversary cake in their fridge and brought it out after... More

Very disappointed tonight, took my elderly parents and brother to The Old Ship, two meals arrived then we sat waiting for around five minutes for the other two dishes. We then tried the risotto which was only luke warm. I mentioned this to the waiter who was quite argumentative about the time and the temperature! I have to say we... More

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

My partner and I stayed here on 13th Aug for 3 nights (Our second vist to this hotel). Harbour view room was clean and tidy. It's location is in the heart of Padstow. 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
