We visited Padstow on 5th December 2014 in order to visit the Christmas Festival. The timings of the various events (long gaps between the lantern parade and firework display) are intentionally aimed at encouraging visitors to spend their money in the shops and various eateries as there's little else to do between those last two events. We chose The Old... More

We've always found that if there's any large sporting events on the TV then the ship will usually feature them. But go in good time to get a seat as it gets very busy. Situated in the centre of town, it's in a good location, always seems to have a good selection of beer on and the food is pretty... More

Turned up and premier room dated and old. Not the same as shown on website. Paid £130 so complained and they reduced it to £80 but an hour later call me to say manager had changed his mind and had found another hotel out of town so they could move us out. Terrible way to treat people. THE PREMIER ROOM... More

Have stayed in Padstow many times, first time at this hotel,we were not disappointed. We stayed as a family group of 6 1 family room. 1 double and 1 single room. All rooms well sized with all the amenities one would need. Staff are amazingly helpful and cheery and the food delicious, the sticky toffee pud to die for. Go... More

The old Ship centrally located for a stay in Padstow is a great hotel small enough to care and big enough to cope with a such a popular village , Our bedroom was spacious, very clean and modern. Food was of high quality and the menu was very tempting. The atmosphere in the bar was very warm and friendly I... More

Wandered in and ordered a sandwich, pint and a small coke. Sandwich came with a tasty salad. Sat inside. Got some helpful advice from staff on a hidden cash machine inside a local bank. Enjoyed my lunch and drinks - what more can I say?

Centrally located pub with accommodation within Padstow. Just checked in for one night as we returned home. Our room was very dated and really needed a refurbishment though everything was clean. Get the impression the town trades off a certain celebrity chef therefore prices are set at premium levels. Not worth the £120.00 charged especially in low season November! Just... More

We arrived at padstow and to a very busy padstow. After a lovely walk across the beach we were hungry. The shops were extremely busy we found The Old Ship Hotel which was busy too. The advertisement for a seafood platter for two was to tempting for us. A beautiful hotel with lovely staff. We ordered our platter after a... More

Food and service nothing to shout about but okay, especially if you have to sit outside on a rainy day as they have a massive canopy you can sit under, with dogs. That said, the pint of Doom Bar I had at lunchtime was off, it tasted a bit sour so I looked around at others and they were downing... More
